The Kissing Bridge
Escaping the past isn’t as easy as it should be…
Anna thought her bad decisions would fade into nothing after she vanished for a few months. Her motives would be clear, her mistakes erased, and she’d be able to rewrite her future the way she wanted. It didn’t work out the way she’d planned. Instead, she discovered her actions have consequences and they had to be paid.
Reuben loved Anna for as long as he could remember, but before he could get serious about courting her, his brother, Mark, won her away. But now she’s back and she beginning to pay the steep price for her mistakes. Reuben tries to help her as much as he can, and the decisions he makes will cost them both everything.
Sold on Love
When Lavina Fisher takes over the household while Mamm’s away, things go from bad to worse. And her younger brother, Stephen, is mostly to blame. Then an accident forces Lavina to face her fears—and her ex-boyfriend. Can she swallow her pride and accept Aaron’s help with the latest disaster?
Cowboys and Amish Girls
Rodeo cowboy, Truman Gunderson, had never met an Amish girl. Amish sisters, Faith, Hope, and Charity had yet to lay eyes on a real, live cowboy. That is until Truman’s galloping horse crosses paths with Charity’s runaway buggy. Truman is not the type to shy away from any challenge, but after he learns something about Faith, Hope, and especially Charity, he realizes that he has met his match.
I enjoyed these three stories very much. 
There is something enjoyable for everyone to read.
There are also many life lessons to kearn from these stories that each author has put in.

The Kissing Bridge
I loved Laura's story because you can't run from the past. The past makes us who we are. I have tried doing that and it doesn't work!
None of us deserves abuse verbally or physical in no way shape or form.
I'm glad my two heroes finally found a way to work out their problems even tho it might not have been the best solution but it was a peaceful one?
I sure didn't like how Mark bullied everyone around. Too often it starts in the home but I don't think this was the case this time. Jealousy is your greatest bully. I didn't think it was right that Mark got everything that his brother or anyone else wanted.
I really really wanted to wrap my arms around and take her away myself!!! I'd have to loved to have her as a sister! I think she would've been a joy to be around!!
I'm have been raised by myself so, i don't know what having a sibling is like.

Sold on Love.
In Rachael's story we meet Aaron, Steven and Lavina.
Poor Steven!!! He reminds too much of my own husband being accident prone and all!!! I definitely wanted to shake him up some and make him see what he's doing. 
Sometimes tho we have to learn lessons the hard way!!! I am like that!! I still am like that. I act or say things before I think them thro. 
I am glad Steven has Aaron to help him thro the rough spots!! Aaron is a hero in my book!!!
Way to go Aaron!!! 
Lavina is something else!!!
Lavina has a fear all her own. But, I think it's a silly reason not to go on with life. If a man doesn't love you for who you are and not what you can't do then he's not the one for you.
My grandma used to say, there's a lid for every pot in this world.

The Cowboy and Amish Girl
In Thomas's story we meet a cowboy and an Amish girl. 
Truman is a funny, likable cowboy! I love his personality! 
Truman is a teacher of sorts. I think the Lord has led him to the family for a reason. There he makes new friends and along the way learns some things for himself. 
I like how Charitys mom says," That Spring makes ppl do crazy things". I believe her. It's our way of saying cabin fever after being cooped up all winter.
Charity is a go getter. I like that! 
Isn't it funny how sometimes two ppl meet and where they meet? I met my husband at Wal-Mart lol!!!
I recommend this book very strongly. 
I received this book for free. No compensation was received and all words are my own.

The story behind The Kissing Bridge
The Snow Globe was released in November 2014 and almost immediately readers fell in love with Reuben and Anna, the grandparents in the story. They were secondary characters, but readers asked me to write their story – I put it on the back-burner, told God if He opens the doors I would, and didn’t really think of it again until I was asked to write a novella for this collection. I talked to the publisher of my Amish novels, they gave me permission, and a very close friend and I went back and reread The Snow Globe to remember all the important details about Reuben and Anna in that book. Then, with much prayer for God’s leading, I dived in. The Kissing Bridge is the result, and it was so much fun to write! If you are new to my writing, and want to know what happened to the main characters of The Kissing Bridge years down the road, then read The Snow Globe. If you have read The Snow Globe and were one of the many who asked for Reuben and Anna’s story, then read The Kissing Bridge.
The setting is actually a real covered bridge that I visited long years ago with my parents when we went on a camping trip and visited all the covered bridges and mills in driving distance of our camp-spot. That was before I cared that my family had come from the Amish and I wondered at all these people dressed as they were and driving horses and buggies!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the story!
