Self-confidence, practicality, and determination trump jealousy and meekness, and gendered behavior restrictions get shaken up, in Beckstrand s optimistic, sweet second story of the Wisconsin Amish honeybee sisters Beckstrand s characters grow by pushing gently at the trappings of traditional life without rebelling against it. "Publishers Weekly " The latest book in The Honeybee Sisters series is another hilarious and breathlessly romantic adventure. Aunt Bitsy continues to be delightfully amusing, her Amish roots blending with her Englisch experiences in ways that are both unconventional and laugh-out-loud funny. The added bits of more physical humor this go-around, as well as the love-hate nature of the romantic tension, give this book its own distinct feel from its predecessor. Beckstrand has a knack for combining humor and romance along with real characters, and this series is the best example yet! "RT Book Reviews," 4.5 Stars Top Pick Take a plot that puts a fun, Amish twist on the classic boy-next-door trope Combine this with a cast of well-developed characters (including the truly unique Aunt Bitsy), and throw in lively writing seasoned with a generous pinch of humor, and you have a charming love story that will tempt even readers who ordinarily might shun Amish romances.
