*Spoiler alert*

I didn't learn about Amish lifestyle as much as I hoped. The story was engaging but everything was too perfect. All the characters were good-willed, kind, sensitive, thoughtful, yadi yadi yada, and the plans were perfect and everything works out eventually. El fin.

"A Perfect Plan" by Beth Wiseman, "The Perfect Match" by Kathleen Fuller, and "The Perfect Secret" by Kelly Long have written about three Amish women in three different short stories that are faced with many obstacles preparing for their wedding day. Will Priscilla King, Naomi Fisher, or Rose Bender find their way to marriage?

An Amish Wedding is my first Amish book that I have read. I was a little disappointed to know that an Amish person could be a thief and cells phones were allowed. I know th

I was pleasantly surprised by these three short stories that revolve around one small Amish community and a wedding that is to occur in the near future. Often, these types of books can go overboard on the emotion or are too heavily influenced by religion, but this book was nicely done. It was cozy and yet cheerfully humorous and it reminded me of the many Amish and Mennonite friends I've made over the years.

An Amish Wedding by Kelly Long, Kathleen Fuller, & Beth Wiseman
Review by Kara Grant

Will these three Amish women get the wedding of their dreams or will they have to settle for something else? Here are three very different stories woven into one book with different perspectives on how to trust God with the most important decision a young woman can make. Out of the three stories, only two women are getting married, but there is love to be experienced by each.

Skipped the first story.

"A Perfect Match by Kathleen Fuller - Short, sweet and chaste romance. A few humorous scenes. Storyline moved well for a novella. Nice job! 3 Stars"

"A Perfect Plan by Beth Wiseman - A comedy of errors impact these cute characters' wedding preparations. Strong message about how worrying too much will distract you from understanding God's plan. "Only God's plan is perfect." Sweet romance. Three stars!"

A book of three novellas, all centered around wedding preparations. Kept my interest and focused on perfectionism, God's will, trust and more. Romantic.
This wasn't my favorite of the Amish collections that I've read lately. This could possibly be because the narrator's voice irked me when she did certain male voices. Like, gave me weird vibes irksome.

While they may embody Old Order Amish, the characters in this book also embrace New Order Amish bordering on Englisher customs. And I'm not meaning those who are in their Rumspringa, either. While some had phone shanties for their businesses, they also carried cell phones. Usually it's those who a

I like how each of these stories was set not only in the same community, but at the same basic time. This added a bit of cohesiveness to the collection that might not have been there otherwise. I also appreciated how each couple in the stories learned how to trust in God's plan and timing and lead.
I think my favourite of the stories was Luke and Rose's. I enjoyed the bit of mystery surrounding "Rob in the Hood", and how that eventually played out in Luke and Rose's lives.

I listened to this book, which is always tricky, because a reader can make or a break a book, regardless if the book is great or so-so. I didn't love the reader, so I'm not sure how much the reader influenced my opinion of the book. Anyway, the story was good, but it seemed very wordy and overly dramatic. It was my first Amish book and I enjoyed learning (assuming the book was accurate) about the Amish culture.

In true Amish fiction style, the clean romance in these three stories in one book does not disappoint. Although I was surprised when it switched from one person's story to another, as I read on it became clear that the second story was linked to the first. The third story was not a surprise, as I had looked a the table of contents by then.

This book has 3 novellas about what else - Amish Weddings! I love the Amish culture and their devotion to God and threating others truly as God treats us. It's a joy to read and listen to a story that has no violence or language and just enjoy the happy endings!

I have always enjoyed the Amish romance genre and this book with three separate but connected stories is perfect as a light uncomplicated story to listen to.

The first story was just plain unreal. I know these books are fiction but many read as non-fiction, which I like. I enjoyed the other two stories.

An Amish Wedding by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller & Kelly Long

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I am under no obligation to write a positive review, just an honest one. I also want to thank both NetGalley and Thomas Nelson Publishers for allowing me to review this book.

I really enjoyed this book and could hardly put it down. It amazes me how three authors can write stories that go together, does one write first, then the second, then the last one or do they get together and plot the characters and certain 'events' that take place? These stories are about three friends and take place during the same time span.

"A Perfect Secret" is a story about Rose and Luke, lifelong friends and neighbors who are engaged. This is very intriguing since they have both joined the

A very enjoyable collaboration of three books in one. The books are:
1. A Perfect Secret by Kelly Long
2. A Perfect Match by Kathleen Fuller
3. A Perfect Plan by Beth Wiseman
At the end of the book it includes:

My Take:
All three of these stories are somewhat intertwined. In the first story, A Perfect Secret, by Kelly Long, Rose and Luke are neighbors, and they happen to get engaged. Rose worries whether or not passion really can exi

Three Amish couples wrestle with doubts and hilarious situations in the days prior to their nuptials.

Each of the three novellas are interwoven with the story lines of the other making this book even sweeter. Because this is a novellas collection I will split my review into 3 parts, with a brief review of each story.

Perfect Secret is the first of the collection, and tells the tale of Rose Bender and her husband-to-be Luke. As the date grows closer so do Rose's suspicions that Luke is hiding somet
3.5 Stars

This is a book made up of three different stories by three different authors. The neat thing about these stories is they all fit together by leading up to a final event.

The Perfect Secret: This story is about Rose and Luke. They become engaged but Rose is not sure its for the best and Luke has a secret he is not sharing with Rose. I will be honest this story is not one I enjoyed that much. The idea for the story line was okay but since it was a short story it felt rushed. One minute R
