    1. This is the kind of book you just want to curl up with and read straight through from beginning to end Unfortunately life got in the way and I had to do essential things like work and sleep, but the story so ensnared me that even when I wasn t reading, I found myself anticipating the next time I would be able to Remy captivated me right from the start, so clearly at a crossroads in her life questioning past hurts but not learning from them as she struggles to find her place in the world She s lo [...]

    2. This is my second novel by this author, which is really saying something because I was a little harsh with my first review But alas, here I am again reading one of her books I liked this one than the first one The two MC s were likable I also liked that this wasn t about just one story line The fluffy romance was front and center, but the murder mystery was a nice balance This was probably 2.5 stars, but I struggled with some of the repetitive writing so 2 stars.

    5. I m rather surprised at myself for giving a full 5 stars to an Amish romance book, but after much though I can t find a reason not to I became interested in reading this after I read the sequel A Simple Spring some months ago and thought it kind of cute However, A Simple Spring pales in comparison to this, which is just flat out a great novel stellar writing, interesting characters, a great plot, and just an enjoyable read.Remy McCallister first meets Amish Adam King on a train A year later, fru [...]

    6. What makes me enjoy a book is not so much the setting but a good writer Rosalind Lauer is that I ve read two Amish romances now, this being my second and, to my surprise, enjoyed both In A Simple Winter you have winsome, well drawn characters, deft portraits of Amish life idealized, perhaps , and a sweet attraction between the hero and heroine There s enough of a mystery to keep the pages turning, hints of darkness and sorrow, and yet an overall sense of goodness that wins the day Add to that co [...]

    7. I loved this book I ve wondered for quite a while what the attraction was to these Amish books While at a recent romance writers conference, this book was given away in our goodie bags Now I understand why Amish books are so popular I m buying the next one as soon as my new Kindle arrives in the mail.

    14. This was my second Amish romance and I liked it a lot better than my first experience with the sub genre I did notice that a lot of the names were the same, even though the books were by different authors and set at different times in different towns I guess there are a lot of the same families in the Amish communities This story was a little different in that the Amish man fell in love with an Englisher woman There was also a murder mystery woven through out the story I was very pleased with th [...]

    16. 3.5 Stars, and probably one of the best of the Amish books that I ve read this year, I know, I know, I swore I was done after the debacle of the last one, but I saw this at the e library and couldn t resist , but still a bit unrealistic though, let s face it, we don t read any kind of Romance story for itsrealism.The unrealistic portion for me was probably view spoiler how after less than a week of staying with 1 Amish family Remy was completely willing to change her entire way of life I spent a [...]

    25. This was the first time for me to read a book written by Rosalind Lauer and her Amish series will be a repeat for me in the future.I loved this book because Rosalind Lauer had a way with using the right words to draw her readers into the book, to make you feel like you were right there living the scene with the characters too.I tell ya I didn t see the who for the murderer coming as I was reading.

    29. I won this from , and was hoping this was not another cookie cutter Amish book That being said, I can honestly say this is the best Amish book I have read to date It is part romance, part mystery, which adds excitement and depth to the characters and plot I liked the realistic interaction between the characters, making them seem like real people, not the perfect personalities sometimes typical in Christain fiction Although fairly predictable, there were surprises, too This is a sweet, enjoyable [...]
