Editorial Reviews

This sequel to The Lopsided Christmas Cake is laugh-out-loud funny with memorable characters who put their needs on the backburner in order to help those they love and admire. Characters are witty, sweet and charming, some more charming than others at times. Wanda and her daughter-in-law Jean combine their talents and weave together a keeper.

The simple storyline interweaves romance, loneliness, fear, and trusting God issues with a dash of healthy eating and childrearing tips, ending with two recipes. Amish Christian fiction fans will enjoy.

    Elma Hochstetler is a twin. Her twin, Thelma is married expecting a boppli. Elam has had to adjust living and running the General store alone. While reading The Farmer's Market mishap, I was starting to feel a little sorry for Elma. Even though, she loves her sister and is happy for her growing family. Elma wonders when it will be her time to find Love. Elam finally feels there might be hope after meeting Ben Wagler at a Farmer's Market. The story was well written and had you rooting for Elma to find Love and happiness like her sister, Thelma. I really enjoyed this book by Wanda Brunstetter. Looking forward to her next book. I voluntarily give an honest review. Received this book by Barbour Publishing.

Elma has longed for the life Thelma has found with Joseph and she isnt getting any younger. Will she marry Ben and have the family she wants?

    The Farmers' Market Mishap

    By Wanda E. Brunstetter

    and Jean Brunstetter

    Elma Hochstetler wants to get married but at her 30+ years doesn't think its ever going to happen. Her twin sister Thelma is married and expecting her first baby and want Elma to marry too. Just one problem Thelma wants to pick out the man Elma will marry after all that is the only way to ensure Elma stays close and in Topeka, Indiana.

    In Grabill, Indiana, Ben Wagler is having his own matchmaking troubles - his mother, Dorothy can't accept that he doesn't want to marry any of the local Amish in their community. After all why wouldn't he want to marry an eligible young woman especially at his age! She's sure he could fall in love if he'd just put a little more effort into it.

    But when Ben and Elma meet over a spilled basket of fruit they have a connection - there is just one problem they live more than 50 miles apart. This is an instant strike against them in both the eyes of Thelma and Dorothy. But when the heart's involve who will win ~ love or loyalty to family ties?

    This is a cute book that at times can get a tad redundant with the main characters rehashing their feelings and the re-explaining of situations. Yes, Elma's horse was injured and needs a few more weeks of rest - got it. But if you're looking for a quick read and have enjoyed Wanda Brunstetter's Amish novellas in the past you'll enjoy this book as well. I was a tad disappointed in the book and the story flow at times and at other times it flowed smoothly when not dealing with Elma's chore load, and Thelma and Dorothy's attempts at marital manipulation.

    And an added bonus for those who like to cook - there are two recipes in the back one for crisp and one for potato salad.

    I really enjoyed this short story of family ties between Elma Hochstetler and her twin sister Thelma.

    Life changes can be hard to adjust to, but Wanda E. and Jean Brunstetter have written a wonderful and inspiring story, that keeps the reader fully engaged with the interactions and emotions of the characters.

    I have read most of Wandas books, but unfortunately I missed reading the prequel to this book The Lopsided Christmas Cake.

    While I really enjoyed this story, I would have enjoyed it more if I was familiar with the previous book, and I would recommend reading it first.

    The Farmers Market Mishap by Wanda E Brunstetter & Jean Brunstetter

    I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing but am not under obligation to post a review. In fact, I almost did not write one as I always hate to post when I am not in love with a book. However, I decided to write once I realized that it really was my own interests that gave me such a poor view of this book. The Farmer's Market Mishap is a sequel to the Lopsided Christmas Cake. It is about two Amish sisters who are twins and does a nice job of showing the deep connection twins feel even as they learn to live apart as adults. One sister is married and expecting while the other wishes she could have the same thing but not wanting to take anything away from her sister's joy.

    This is a genre that I had not really explored before so when I was given a copy I thought why not? I can read about this and see if it is one I would continue to read. I was so disappointed because I came to the realization that I did not like this genre and in fact had a very difficult time finishing not because it was a bad topic but because it was not a topic I appreciate. While it gives a wonderful look into the life of the Amish and even uses some of their vocabulary and mannerism to enhance the experience I found the book to be a bit slow and fluffy. I don't think that it is the fault of the author who has many wonderful titles to her name, but rather it is me.

    So if you are interested in the world of the Amish, I would recommend this book. If not, like me, keep exploring and don't feel you have to finish a book simply because you started it. I didn't.
