About the Book
Carly Blosser may not match the typical description of a conservative Mennonite woman—unmarried at 27, living alone, and careening around her Oregon neighborhood on a pink bicycle—but she has a soft heart for the elderly Mennonite residents at Sweet Life Assisted Living Facility, where she works as a caregiver. When Carly’s plans for a new volunteer program go awry, she shifts her focus to one lonely resident named Martha. Adam Lapp, a wood shop instructor at Sweet Life, joins with Carly to reunite Martha with an old flame before her 85th birthday. Carly and Adam’s hunt involves carved initials on covered bridges, digging up the past, and the appearance of a newcomer, who hinders the budding romance between the two. Soon, new clues sweep them all in a harried race to the finish line where love is sure to be the ultimate prize.

Dianne Christner has written a sweet, heart-warming Mennonite story that readers will enjoy. It is the story of an older Mennonite woman, Carly Blosser, who works in an assisted living care center. She is sweet with a little sass, including her pink bicycle. Little by little Carly seems to be falling in love with her brother’s friend, Adam, Lapp, but there is tension involved as Adam is caught in the cross fire between his father and uncle to either court Carly for the wrong reasons or not be involved with her at all. Although it took me a little bit to get into the story, it was still a fun, sweet novel with delightful characters and well-written plot. I would recommend this entertaining and enjoyable story to readers that enjoy Amish fiction.
