Book Review--A LITTLE BIT OF CHARM by Mary Ellis
I received this book free when I attended the American Christian Fiction Writers' Conference last September. No stipulation was made to provide any review, whether positive or negative.
This is a romance I think you'll enjoy. I'd give it a solid four and a half thumbs up.
Rachel King has concocted a crazy plan, one that could get her in trouble with her Amish and Mennonite family. Plain folks don't hold with Amish girls wearing blue jeans and T-shirts.
She hasn't been baptised yet, and technically that means she is allowed a bit of leeway, but still... Still, she wants so much to work with those horses in Kentucky. If only she can get work on a ranch. And she can. And the boss is very nice looking. But she's Amish, and she will remain Amish. All she can feel for him is friendship. And that's final.
Jake thinks this new tour leader is pretty attractive too, and it's enough to pull his attention away from his prized colt--or rather his family's prized colt, the one with Derby potential. The one his parents reluctantly agreed to hire that expensive professional trainer for, so he needs to keep his priorities straight. But it's so very difficult when he's finding this girl so very attractive.
Maybe if he convinces her he's religious she'll be a little more interested in him. He'll take her to his family's church. That should do it.
It almost works, but after a lot of thinking, Rachel tells him she can't see him any more, other than professionally.
