An Amish Family Christmas: Heart of Christmas & Plain Holiday by Marta Perry & Patricia Davids ~ Review

An Amish Family Christmas: Heart of Christmas\A Plain HolidayLucie's Review:

In Heart of Christmas Susannah Miller is the teacher of Pine Creek Amish School, and has been for the past 12 years. She loves teaching and cares for each of her students.
James Klein the newest member of the school board was to cancel the Christmas program, he also sends his daughter Mary to spy on Susannah's activities.
Everything seems to be going wrong for Susannah, but when a love from the past returns, now widowed, with two children, she begins to wonder if Toby might be the answer to a prayer.

Susannah was a lovely heroine, selfless, and giving to the children in her class. Honestly I didn't know what to think of Toby, but as I read more I liked him more.

The bishop was a wise and perceptive man, and I really liked him. This was a sweet story of friendship and healing, just in time for Christmas.

A Plain Holiday tells the tale of Sally Yoder, who is a nanny to two young charges, Kimi and Ryder, who are English. Kimi is a typical pre-teen girl caught up in the swirl of social media and lost without her phone. While Ryder is a bundle of seemingly never-ending energy.
Sally accompanies the children to their grandmother McIntyre's horse farm, while the children's parents fly to Paris without their children.
Ben Lapp works at McIntyre farms, and a few years ago Sally had a huge crush on him and was telling anyone who would listen that she would marry him someday.  But he had no interest in her, now he can't seem to even get her to talk to him.
Could love be in the air?

Sally is a relatable heroine, she has grown and matured over the years, and is no longer throwing herself at Ben. I loved how Ben connected with Ryder, and taught him how to drive the sleigh.

The kids' great grandmother was just so warm and welcoming, and happy that her grandkids had come to spend time with her.

Overall this was a great story, and I loved Ben and Sally together and how they interacted with each other. Definitely a great story.
