As she struggles to face a future without him, a widow asks for her help to start a new business and Katrina quickly agrees. She needs time to heal her broken heart, to untangle her messy life, to find a purpose. What she doesn't need is attention from Andy Miller, a farm hand who arrives at the widow's farm just when help is most needed--and who always seems to say the right thing, and be in the right place, at the right time. Is Andy
for real, or too good to be true? Deceived once before, Katrina is determined to keep her feelings in check.
When a cascade of events is set in motion by some surprising information, the little Amish church is turned upside down. Soon, everyone has a stake in the outcome, and the community struggles to find the best response to an imposter in their midst. Can they forgive even the most deceitful deeds?
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher introduces her loyal fans to a brand-new series set in their favorite town--Stoney Ridge. As always, Fisher delivers endearing characters and plot twists that keep readers turning page after page after page.

Mackenzie Carol4 Stars Out Of 5The ImposterJuly 22, 2016Mackenzie CarolQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The Imposter is the first book in Suzanne Woods Fishers The Bishops Family series, but definitely isnt the first book I have ever read by her. Ive read many of her other Amish books in the past and really enjoyed each of them, so I was pretty excited to read this novel. As soon as I started it, I was sucked in and found myself trying to figure out all that was going to happen, though I was definitely thrown for a loop more than once with some of the very unexpected turns this story took. I enjoyed every one of them though, as well as this whole story, because there were so many things to keep me captivated and guessing.
Katrina Stoltzfus is still struggling to heal after two different wrecks: a buggy accident she and her mother were in, and the train wreck of a long-distance relationship she had with her boyfriend, John. As a way of coping, she distracts herself by taking a job helping a widow with her new business, where she finds she actually enjoys her work. Before long, however, her life is turned upside down once again, and she finds herself wondering if she can truly move on, or if she really can count on the friendship Andy Miller is only too happy to provide.
The Imposter focuses on three other characters as well as Katrina: her father, David Stoltzfus, her brother Jesse, and their neighbor Birdy Glick. I really enjoyed reading all the different scenes from each of their perspectives, and I felt the varying focus gave new light to the story and all that went on. I definitely enjoyed all the different facets of this tale, and am really excited to read the next book in the series.
All in all, I really liked this book, though there were a few times it was just a little too slow for my tastes. I can happily give it four out of five bookshelves, though, and would still highly recommend this book. There are so many wonderfully sweet scenes packed into the pages of this novel, and I was ready to start the next bookThe Quietingjust as soon as I put this one down. I have to read a book for Tuesdays My Bookshelf post first, but then I will be devouring that novel as well!

BitsymcRed Lion, PAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Captivating Story!April 20, 2016BitsymcRed Lion, PAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Imposter is Book #1 in The Bishops Family series and is a captivating story with delightful characters; some you will like, others not so much! I found the title The Imposter intriguing and soon discovered some of the people in Stoney Ridge are not what they seem. Although I wanted to savor each page, I was anxious to finish hoping for a happy ending! It was easy to get involved in the story-line finding yourself rooting for the underdog. Katrina Stoltzfus thinks she has life all figured out. Andy Miller seems too good to be true? Will Katrina be deceived once again or will she learn to trust God for forgiveness and a better plan for her life? Lots of twists and turns and as with all Suzanne Woods Fisher books Ive read, well-written and enjoyable. Cant wait for Book #2, The Quieting.
kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Love. It's amazing what it could do.April 3, 2016kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The first thing I loved about this book is that it was readable. A problem that I have with Amish fiction is that the language is stilted in an attempt to "be authentically Amish." This book was not that. Author Suzanne Woods Fisher didn't feel the need to educate me on Amish customs and language; she just told a story that flowed well.
This novel is Book One of The Bishop's Family series, which is one of many book series set in Stoney Ridge. So, there is a lot of history in this town of which I was unaware, since this is the first of Fisher's books that I have read. However, I was able to entirely enjoy this book on its own merit, and did not feel lost while reading it.
So that is what I liked about it. There were many characters to meet, and they were all in different places in their lives-age, spiritual maturity, marital status, etc. "Everyone's journey begins somewhere." The neat thing is that those characters will be there in future installments and we will continue to be able to see the growth in their lives.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
