Covered Bridge Charm by Dianne Christner
Dianne Christner is a new author for me. I hadn't read any books about Mennonites and so it was interesting to see the difference with the Amish books that I have been reading. I found it a little harder to get engaged into the story perhaps because there were many characters to get to "know". I did like the assisted senior living aspect of the book because I have been dealing with things of this nature in my own life recently and could really relate to that part.
I enjoyed what Carly, the main character, was doing for one of the older ladies in the center where she worked. It definitely was a fun part of the book with a little romance mixed in and I enjoyed that a lot. And of course, there was just a bit of mystery to add to the interest.
The differences in the Amish and the Mennonites were shown here and it was something that I had not known about too well. I liked Carly, who was an independently active young woman involved in social issues and getting others to be involved with them as well.
The longer I read the book the more engaged with it I became.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.
