Publisher's Description

Twenty-year-old Nellie Monroe has a restless brilliance that makes her a bit of an odd duck. She wants to be a private investigator, even though her tiny hometown offers no hope of clients. 

Until she meets Amos Shetler, an Amish dropout carrying a torch for the girl he left behind. So Nellie straps on her bonnet and goes undercover to get the dish.

 
But though she’s brainy, Nellie is clueless when it comes to real life and real relationships. Soon she’s alienated her best friend, angered her college professor, and botched her case. Operation Bonnet is a comedy of errors, a surprising take on love, and a story of grace. 

Author Bio

Kimberly Stuart holds degrees from St. Olaf College and the University of Iowa. After teaching Spanish and English as a second language in Chicago, Minneapolis, Costa Rica, and eastern Iowa, she took a huge increase in pay to be a full-time mom. She makes her home in Des Moines, Iowa, with her husband and two young children.

Nellie Monroe, the narrator and main character of Operation Bonnet by Kimberly Stuart, has a personality as big and vibrant as the mane of red hair she gave up trying to tame years before. With the summer after her second year of college just beginning, she is holding tight to her dream of becoming a private investigator. Thus she is thrilled when a co-worker, a young man named Amos who recently left the Amish order, hires her to find out if his former girlfriend is marrying someone else. Nellie goes undercover, using false pretenses to investigate, but she soon discovers that lying causes more problems than it solves.

Nellie is a likeable character with a distinct and humorous narrative voice. Other characters are also three-dimensional and have personality quirks—even those who play relatively minor roles in the story. Whereas the plot itself may not be entirely unique, it is not in any way a traditional Amish romance and Nellie's voice gives the story a fresh twist.

Operation Bonnet emphasizes the importance of the command given in Colossians 2:9, "Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices." Although a simple message, it is an important one that we sometimes forget. I recommend this book to any reader who enjoys contemporary romances. – Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

Stuart (Stretch Marks) confects Nellie Monroe, a 21-year-old PI wannabe who was dubbed a literary luminary in fifth grade, in this tale of comedic errors. The often flippant yet likable and fun-loving protagonist is bursting with quippy comebacks in external and internal dialogue as she attempts to navigate her youthful way through a dysfunctional family and along an uncertain career path. Nellie's dream comes true when she's offered a PI job by Amish dropout Amos Shetler, who hires Nellie to spy on a former Amish flame. Nellie goes undercover in full Amish regalia and infiltrates Amos's ex-sweetheart's community to get the goods for her client. Between trekking back and forth between her home and an Amish town, Nellie unearths the truth for Amos and inadvertently learns some life lessons. Neatly done, Stuart's work certainly provides amusing spiritual takeaways for readers to privately file away for later reference. (Feb.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    Although I never read any book by this author, I did enjoy the light reading. I read often and this was somewhat funny with an easy storyline. Just an all around good book.

    This was my first experience reading this author's work. I must say I really, really liked it. It is very unique in its approach the Amish genre. You won't find another one like this hanging out on the bookshelves.

    I guess I can see where one might either really love it or really hate it. The writing style is so different so old school readers might not appreciate it. However, I found it very engaging and the quick-wittedness displayed was fantastically humorous.

    Go into this one with an open mind and let Ms. Stuart use Nellie to lead you on a fun little adventure with an Amish twist. Can't wait to see more!!!!! I hope you'll return to the new Amish fans you've gained.

    I just sat for an entire afternoon ignoring all calls of housework, laundry, whining children, and a hungry husband and read cover to cover Operation Bonnet!!!!! What a gift!!!! Stuart is so incredibly talented, my cheeks ache from smiling and laughing so much. My sweet girls kept asking what was so funny and for the last several hours I've just been shushing them so I can continue reading - ALL DAY LONG!!! What a refreshing, lighthearted, fun read this was!

    It sounds so cliche but I honest to God, laughed and cried - ok, I only cried once, but SOOOO GOOOD!!!! And I love love love love all Stuart's witty one liners! "The Amish Don Juan!" AND "Crazy Amish! Throwing kohlarabi and peanut frat parties!" AND..."I mean, the woman had never used a hair dryer, so newfangled ideas on how to cut onions might be a bit off-putting!!" Cracks me up!!!

    It's been TOOO long since I've been 100% immersed in such a great, fun, witty, snarky book! LOVE LOVE LOVE Nellie! LOVE Amos - probably even funnier becasue we lived in Missouri for 8 years and our friend was a farmer and his hired hand's nickname was "SAP - Somewhat Amish Pete!!" And he was SOOOOO Amos!! Stuart hit him head on!!

    What a fun, fun, fun fun day!! Thanks to Stuart for gifting Operation Bonnet to us!

    Kimberly has a very unique style of writing and she gets better with each book. This book is my favorite of hers so far. I love the premise and plot and her characters are just as quirky and fun as ever. The boss who can't talk without screaming, the best friend who's a guy and works at Radio Shack, which is perfect because Nellie with the red afro hair is a wanna be private investigator except that she lives in a relatively small town and has no P.I. jobs. Then comes along Amos, a former Amish young man that decides to hire Nellie. Ah, yes, and chaos has just started. She has to infiltrate his former Amish neighbors to get the info he needs...right... I love where it goes and Kimberly brings us along on every uncomfortable encounter along the way. My favorite thing about Kimberly's books are that she doesn't wrap everything up with a pretty, neat bow at the end. But she does bring everything to a close. Another good book from a very unique author.
