Book Description: 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?
My Thoughts: First of all this is a sequel to The Lopsided Christmas Cake so I would suggest that you read The Lopsided Christmas Cake first to understand the dynamics of the family.
Sometimes family life is complicated especially when one of the family members marries before the other. The "other" one may feel lonely and left out. This is somewhat the case with Elma Hochstetler. When her twin sister, Thelma, marries and is busy and is expecting a new little bundle of joy.
Elma and Thelma run a general store together but Elma just feels the need for her own "exciting" life.
Well as life would have it Elma finds love but not quite the way she wants it to happen.
This is the fun, light heated story of Elma's romance.
