Twin sisters, Elma and Thelma Hochstetler volunteer to bake a Christmas cake for an Amish charity auction, only to learn they must demonstrate the whole process on stage in front of an audience. Bumbling their way through, the take-charge Elma and the klutzy optimist Thelma manage to entertain their audience—and attract the admiration of two bachelors, an outspoken woodworker and a shy harness maker from a neighboring community. More than one man will make a staggering bid for their cake. Could a lopsided Christmas cake be the key to opening the door to romance for one or more of the Hochstetler twins?
In trademark fashion, Wanda Brunstetter, along with Jean Brunstetter, has created another captivating Amish novel. It’s a fantastic start to a new series, and kept me hooked until the end. The blended writing style of these two talented ladies was a refreshing experience!
Thelma and Elma’s characters stole my heart completely! Their characters are unique! They are identical twins, but they are older, in their 30s. That’s unusual in books like these but I loved that twist to the story! They are twins, yet so different. These sweet ladies really kept me smiling! Their devotion to their grandparents, God and to each other was really wonderful. The mishaps of their lives, the possibility of being old maids and never finding love, the quirkiness woven into the story, all of it kept me engrossed in the story. Watching one lopsided yummy cake change that, well it was not what I was expecting but was also refreshing.
I loved Joseph and Delbert’s characters, too. They really livened up the story!
This is definitely a book worth 5 stars and 2 thumbs up. It’s going to the top of my list of 2017 top reads. If you love yummy cakes, quirky characters, God and family, be sure and snatch this one up! You’ll be left wanting more mishaps from these lovely twins!
