    Lovely Amish romance Roman and Joann were such endearing characters Enjoyed learning about the Amish way of life I loved how Roman and Joann connected through their letter writing and began to care for each other with either one not knowing who their mysterious pen pal was Wonderful book

    Plain Admirer by Patricia Davids; Takes place in Hope Springs Ohio in the middle of Amish Country The author does a wonderful job of writing the scenes to the point you feel you are riding in a horse drawn cart fishing on a lake or in a printing office learning how to use typeset Joann Yodar a confirmed spinster dreams of owning her own home Owning her own home is just within her reach when she is fired from her job to make way for the owners Nephew Before she leaves in two weeks time she must train her replacement Devastated over having to let go of her dreams she takes solace in one of her favorite pastimes fishing Even her fishing trip with the family is ruined when her own brother in my opinion jealous over her catch throws her brand new rod and reel in the lake I truly felt for this character to be deemed unattractive and passed from home to home by her brothers along with losing her dreams But Joann is a little bit feisty and speaks her mind at times when it might not be accepted in the Amish communityRoman Weaver had worked alongside his father and brother in the family sawmill until he was hit by a car and one arm was injured Roman is angry with his situation and having to give up his job with his family He has no idea that his Uncle is giving him Joann's job so he can't understand why she would be upset with him He decides to attempt fishing with a rod harness his younger brother made him While practicing at the lake he hooks into a rod and reel He leaves it at the lake with a handwritten note And so starts a handwritten note exchange with none other than Joann Neither one knows that the other is the mystery writerI really enjoyed this novel by Patricia Davids The characters were well written and you got a look at what Amish life is like I loved the idea of the plot sharing feelings and thoughts with each other And helping each other with opinions and yet not knowing who your mystery penpal was I have to admit the fishing part brought back wonderful memories of my own childhood where my brother and I spent many days fishing in the canal across the road from our home I look forward to books by this author55 starsI received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    Patricia Davids writes really lovely Amish romance These aren't books like Beverly Lewis or Wanda Brunstetter These stories are love stories Readers already know Joann from the last bookThis book is about two seemingly opposite personalities attractingbut as you read the story you find out that Joann and Roman really aren't all that opposite at allI loved how they each took little jabs at each other You could really understand it from Joann's point of view She was being ousted from a job that she loved just so the owner's nephew could find work The fact that she managed to be civil to him while teaching him a job she had been doing and doing well speaks volumes for herIt is no wonder sparks flew between the two Joann is a maedel spinster and Roman is a goodlooking Amish man trying to recover from an accident that left him with little use of one armThe arguments between Joann and Roman really made the story come alive Of course so did the letters that they shared though neither of them know that they are writing to the other at the timeI really loved how they came together in this story Definitely one of Patricia's bestPatricia Davids' Brides of Amish Country series is much like Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series You get to meet new people and revisit old friends with each book so each story is new but familiar

    Two people who have known each other forever but really do not know one another each has had their own pain of moving on in their lives but they are true to being AmishI cringed when one of Joann’s brothers threw her new fishing pole but that horrible act is the catalyst to bringing a better relationship between these two without them even knowing itThis uickly became a page turner and I had to know if these two could make peace and maybe or if they will draw a line of civil acknowledgement? A uick and fun and at times scary readI received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harleuin and was not reuired to give a positive review

    Roman weaver was crippled in a car accident He is no longer able to work in his fathers sawmill safely His uncle runs a publishing company and offers him a job Only he doesn't know that the lady who teaches him how to do everything is being forced from her job to make room for him Slowly they learn to get along and work together although sometimes its very difficult A very good story of acceptance and learning God's will

    Plain Admirer was a uick read filled with characters that needed to find a place to fit in Joann and Roman both are dealing with hurts Joann was living with a different brother every four months and wanted to be on her own When it looked like she could move out on her own events happened that wounded deep Roman was recovering from an accident that limited the use of one arm and he needed to change jobs which resulted in Joann losing her job Joann’s brother threw her new fishing pole into the lake the first time she used it which caused her pain and feeling alone A kind fisherman reeled in her fishing pole from the lake and left a note with the pole Joann writes a thank you note and hid her new pole from her brother Will the letters continue for Joann to discover who was so thoughtful and caring? Will Joann happiness be restored or will she continue to suffer disappointment and disapproval from her married brothers? Patricia Davids’ stories are lighthearted filled with action romance faith and second chances

    Overall I did enjoy This was basically and Amish spin on You've Got Mail and I thought that aspect was greatUnfortunately I did read this during a reading slump so that might have hindered my enjoymentI also found the fishing parts boring but it is a big part of the book for a specific reasonI also appreciated how the Amish in this book were taking up a collection to give to help with road maitenance That just shows that they do play their part when it comes to helping the government because like to assume they don't
