Review: Love's Journey in Sugarcreek: The Sugar Haus Inn by Serena B. Miller

Heidi Reads... Love's Journey in Sugarcreek: The Sugar Haus Inn by Serena B. Miller

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


Policewoman Rachel Troyer has always looked after her three elderly Amish aunts, proprietors of a farmhouse inn near Sugarcreek, Ohio. The idyllic town is popular with tourists, who come to sample its famous Amish goods. But one thing is clear to Rachel - Joe Matthews is no tourist. When the bearded stranger lands on her aunts' doorstep, begging shelter for himself and his young son, Rachel is suspicious. Will she be able to uncover Joe's secrets despite her aunts' - and her own - growing affection for him?

My Review

I enjoyed getting to know Rachel, her aunts, and others from the community of Sugarcreek. Eli was one of my favorites, it was so funny how the elderly Amish man would tease Joe and get such a kick out of his reactions. There was plenty going on in the plot with Joe's secrets and worries, Rachel's job on the police force, her attempts to rein in her aunts, their refusal to settle down into retirement, a lost and pregnant teenager, and a few more exciting things that I don't want to give away. The way that Joe and Rachel handle each obstacle shows their compassion, strength, and kindness. They notice these qualities in each other as they grow closer and their sweet romance develops naturally. The author does a good job incorporating details about Amish life and even though I've read quite a bit in this genre, I ended up learning some new things!
