Book Review--A Son's Vow
Book One of The Charmed Amish Life a series taking place in Charm, Ohio a fictional little town. The book is complete with a fun little map in the front. I caught myself looking over the map as the story progressed.
Book One is the story of a romance between Darla and Lukas.
They've known each other all their lives growing up as best friends but when a tragedy strikes the town they drift apart.
The author wove a sweet little romance together with the drama of
This wasn't a story that I felt 'I knew what was going to happen'.
In fact I was pleased and surprised. I had it all figured out based on the title and boy was I wrong.
Isn't that what makes a good story?
I thoroughly enjoyed this installment and I look forward to the
opportunity to read more.
I want to know what happens with the sub characters like Hannah that worked as a nanny for an 'English' couple. And the dog Rose that lived in the neighborhood where Hannah worked.
I look forward to the installment that tells Hannah's story!
On the negative side. Yep there is one. It's personal but I still want to include it. Get it said and be done with. Personally I thought the inclusion of the Amish words was annoying. Whew I said it.
I might be the only one that feels this way. But I personally didn't think it added to the story or to the realization. I haven't been around the Amish and I might be totally off here. But I think one word here and there was just annoying. Personal opinion.
One more negative for me. And it's not really negative exactly . . .
There was one point in the story. A little mystery that was hinted at but didn't get solved and isn't really mention as if it will be solved in follow up stories.
I don't want to give the storyline away. But I'm just wishin' to find out what happened!
All in all. This was a great book. I started it couldn't put it down.
To me that's a good read.
So here's my 4 stars for A Son's Vow.
This book is widely available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and
Here's the fine print . . .
