The Amish Cookie Club

Edna, Mary, Wilma and Verna are the ladies of the Amish Cookie Club. They meet twice a month on Friday to bake cookies and socialize. In this first book in the series they task themselves with finding a job for Verna’s outspoken daughter, Myrna. Edna recom

Myrna's gift is organization; however, what is organized to her may not be organized to someone else. Reorganizing merchandise leads to her job loss. She ends up back in her father's hardware store in the back. One of the Amish women who bakes cookies with her mother suggests Myrna might be able to help a widower by caring for his four children and keeping house while he minds the farm. Zeke makes it clear he lacks interest in marrying again. The rumor mill suggests he does not believe in medici ...more

A fun book full of emotions and lessons. I always say the book I just finished is my favorite by Sarah Price but this one truly is. I would not have thought that when I first started reading, The Amish Cookie Club. I struggled liking Myrna and wanted to reach in and yell at her to GROW UP. I found her so childish but oh what a wonderful change she made when she started working for Ezekiel. Price did a most excellent job in showing us how it is true if you don't focus on yourself and your unhappi ...more

I really enjoyed this read, and I loved Myrna, a young out-spoken Amish woman, that if she was working for you, this is a possibility she could make you lose business.
The Amish Cookie Club is a small group of women who now that their children are grown are looking for ways to get together and help their community. Of course, they discuss their problems and concerns, and thus our story blooms.
Gossip, at its finest, the Amish grapevine working hard, and with twisted facts, will this young woman be

Every time I begin a book by masterful author, Sarah Price, I get shivers of delight down my spine and feel like a kid in a candy store—or in this case I suppose I should say a bakery. lol 'The Amish Cookie Club' is a fun read guaranteed to bring on a smile or two, some laughing out loud, tearing up, and definitely cause a few sweet cravings along the way!

*Thank you to NetGalley & Kenzington publishing for this free copy in exchange for an honest review*


Ugh. I’m such a sucker for a good Amish story. Myrna is the problem child of the community and so a plan is hatched to get her back on the straight and narrow.
Enter Ezekiel. Widower and father of 4, he could definitely use some help.


The romance in this story is so gentle and sweet...I loved every word.

I have been reading a lot of Amish romance lately, and I love the different communities the authors create that really lets a reader see the different culture the Amish people experience every day. I think there is a misconception that all Amish communities are alike, and it's clear in The Amish Cookie Club that it's not the case at all - each community has varying belief systems, some more conservative than others. I found this book not only very romantic but also very informative. The one quib ...more

The Amish Cookie Club by Sarah Price is one of the most honest books I have read about the Amish and I have read a lot! Price delivers real people with real problems and she doesn’t Christianity coat anything. I’m not saying The Amish Cookie Club isn’t a Christian story. But, even though the Amish believes and practices are part of the story, the characters are probably more realistically portrayed. Four Amish women bake cookies one a week for the church gatherings. But they don’t like being cal ...more

The Amish Cookie Club is a cute Amish romance novel. I enjoyed the four main characters who gather together every other week at Edna Esh’s to bake cookies for their respective church districts to be enjoyed after the worship meal. Their children are grown up, but they are still causing problems for the women. Edna suggests that they come up with a plan for each child starting with Myrna Bontrager, Verna’s daughter. Myrna is outspoken with certain ideas and a whiz at organizing. Unfortunately, he ...more

This was such an enjoyable story. I absolutely loved all the characters in this book. The three Amish mothers who make up the “Amish Cookie Club” are charming. I especially loved the main character, Myrna. She is a lovable, caring, single young Amish lady who is very unreserved and plain-spoken in her dealings with others. She’s not self-centered or mean, she’s just supremely confident that she can look at any person or situation and offer needed improvements. Needless to say, Myrna finds hersel ...more

I really like Myrna she was sassy and you know we all want to speak what’s on our minds, we just don’t. I think we may all need a little Myrna in our selves.

The Amish Cookie Club was an intriguing, entertaining, and heart-warming read from start to finish. Myrna Bontrager had me smiling, with her forthright comments and adventures. I appreciated that she was a little different from a stereotypical Amish heroine, and I enjoyed her analytical and caring personality. Her relationship with widower Ezekiel Riehl was evolving but not in an overwhelming fashion. Each character presented with distinct personalities, making you feel as if you actually knew t ...more

The Amish Cookie Club consists of four middle-aged Amish mothers facing empty nests. They get together to bake cookies for the potlucks after their church services and to spend time together. They also are busybodies who don’t mind interfering in their children’s lives.
