I enjoyed this book . I thought that the cover was very eye catching. Nine times out of ten it's the cover of a book that causes me to read it. I liked the characters too. Let me introduce you to the main ones of the story.

The Celery Patch is a wonderful start to Samantha Bayarr's new series Amish Acres. This storyline definitely keeps the readers on their toes. There are so many exciting twist and turns that it made it difficult to put this book down. There were so many lies, manipulations, and unexpected events in this story that I found my self just shaking my head.

I enjoyed the characters for their realistic personalities. I really disliked Annie right from the first few pages. She is definetly a force to be r

Short & Sweet

The book never did delve into the meaning of planting a celery patch in the Amish community. I was able to gather the gist of it but still don't know if I fully understand it. The celery patch being at the center of the story, I would have assumed that would be the first thing explained!

All in all, it was a cute short story but didn't blow me away. The use of Amish terminology was very interesting.

Misunderstandings can cause many problems. The author wrote a fabulous storyline with some twists and turns that had to be worked out by the great characters. I enjoyed this book and definitely recommend for others to read The Celery Patch. This is Book One of the Amish Acres series. I'm looking forward to Book Two.

I purchased this book and I'm not required to review it. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

A must read for everyone

This book took me to so many levels of feelings. Sometimes it was almost too much and I had to put it down( but only for a few seconds). I enjoyed this book so much and it made me think about my own life and the way I was living. I can’t wait to read the next book from this awesome author.

Suspenseful

This book drove me crazy trying to find out if Naomi and Jermiah would end up together. It was we written every chapter kept you engaged gossiping Annie got on my last nerve. Thankfully Jeremiah realized the error of his ways and came to his senses. Hope to read more about this group.

Intriguing

This book keeps you guessing. I loved it. If you love to try and guess what's going to happen, and you find yourself talking to the characters in your book, then you'll love this story. I can't wait to read the next book. Samantha Bayarr is a gifted author. I would recommend all of her books.

Great story.......

I found this story to be a great way for the characters to show how a young Amish woman dealt with her feelings for a lifetime friend. The author did a good job of telling her story.

Communication is Key

This was the first book where I really questioned the author's experience & research into the community. The story was longer than needed but sweet in the end.

Shallow

This is one of the worst Amish books I have ever read. The characters are one-dimensional and trite. Such a contrast after reading Beverly Lewis books.

Made me cry!

This book is one of my favorites by Bayarr so far. It made me hold my breath, want to scream at the characters to wise up, and made me cry art the end. A great story.

An Amish romance.

This book was very well written with a lot of suspense. The celery patch was growing in the field and there was a big question on who planted it.
