Book Description:
New York Times Bestselling Author Wanda E. Brunstetter and Daughter-in-Law, Jean, Weave a Lighthearted Romance from Indiana’s Amish Country
Living alone for the first time in her life is lonely for Elma Hochstetler, whose twin sister Thelma recently married. Though they share the running of a general store, more and more of Thelma’s time is taken up by her growing family. Elma has dated some, but she wonders if she is just too picky to find love.
Through a mishap at the farmers’ market, Elma meets Ben Wagler and instantly likes him. But there is a problem. He lives in Grabill—50 miles away! But Elma has tried long-distance dating before, and it won’t work for her.  Besides the store needs her. Her sister needs her. Elma feels love will forever remain beyond her grasp.
Elma has a habit of putting others before her own needs. Can she learn to take a risk at following the desires of her heart?

How did Thelma meet her husband?  Find out in The Lopsided Christmas Cake.

My Review:
Firstly Thanks to NetGalley for my review copy.

I read the first book in the series when it was first released and really enjoyed it so was looking forward to seeing what would happen next. 

This book takes up after Thelma has married and is expecting a baby. We see Elma is now living along with Tiger the cat she never wanted in book one but is now welcome companionship. We see a couple of interests for Elma but there are hurdles. Thelma would like to see her rekindle a relationship with her husbands best friend but they are just friends. There are times I really get annoyed with Thelma. I found her to be quite selfish in her thinking. She seems to think that her twin should be happy to help her when the baby comes and not put herself first. She also doesn't want her twin to find love in another district. I understand they are close but at times I felt frustrated with her for not realising she had married and was happy and why wouldn't she want her sister to have the same opportunity even if it meant moving away. I enjoy the way the book is written from several points of view and we see each persons motivation. 
Another great read by Wanda and her Daughter in Law
