    This third book of the New Beginnings series features the third King sister Nora, Rachel, moves to Charm, Kentucky, to stay with her married cousin, Sarah. Rachel lands her dream job at a horse stable and is charmed by the owners son, Jake Brady, who runs Twelve Elms. How can an Amish girl fall for a Baptist, and one who doesnt truly live his faith?

    Jake hopes to run his star horse in the Kentucky Derby, and hires an expensive upper-crust trainer to accomplish this. All the additional expenses may bankrupt the stables if his plan fails.

    Once again Mary Ellis offers an enthralling read with true-to-life situations and hard choices. A Little Bit of Charm will charm readers and make them long for more. I hope there will be a fourth book so we can learn the fate of the youngest King sister.

    My Review:

    The over-used story line of Amish-girl-meets-Englischer-boy never fails to amuse and captivate my attention, this novel was no exception. While I was pleased with the entertainment value, the overall character development, and the Amish setting, there were a couple things that I just couldn't get past.

    First, what is an Amish girl doing riding horses in Englisch clothes and hanging out with her boss? Young Amish teenagers can run around all they like (or so it is portrayed in novels) but I can't see how hanging out with your male boss as a single young woman is just okay with everyone, no questions asked.

    Second, I love learning new things in the books I read. But the glaring inaccuracies about how horses are trained, etc, was bad enough that even I knew better. I appreciate Ellis's original idea of putting an Amish girl on a horse farm. But sometimes even the most epic plans fail, and it just didn't work. Ellis's writing was wonderful as always, however, with great characters/personalities throughout.

    Lastly, I was confused by the nurse trying to get the children vaccinated against polio. I was quite in the dark what that was about, and I couldn't find a reason why that was included. My final conclusion is that as I did not read the first two books, it is altogether possible I missed some vital information along the way. Four out of five stars because Ellis still made a disaster plot entertaining and an interesting story.

    Another excellent Amish novel from Mary Ellis. Rachel King follows her dreams of being on her own after her parents die and her two older sisters marry. Rachel loves horses and goes to Kentucky to live with her married cousin. She soon works at a thoroughbred stable where she finds Jake Brady attractive. She learns he is not Amish. She still attends Amish services and singings and Amish young men pursue her. Will she leave her Amish ways for the enjoyment of Jake and the thoroughbred horses she adores?

    This was a good book. A little slow in a couple spots. But held your suspense to see if it would end the way you will think it will. I recommend this book.
