Twin sisters Elma and Thelma agree to bake for the Amish charity auction - then find out they have to do it onstage. They bumble through cooking chaos and create a hilariously imperfect pastry. But it attracts bids; and bachelors! Could a botched Christmas cake really be the key that unlocks romance for the Hochstetler sisters?

Publisher's Description

Join the Hochstetler twin sisters on stage as they bumble their way through baking a cake for a charity auction in front of a live audience. The take-charge Elma and the klutzy optimist Thelma manage to entertain their audience—and attract the admiration of two bachelors, an outspoken woodworker and a shy harness maker from a neighboring Amish community. As fall leads into the Christmas season, could romance be blossoming for one or more of the Hochstetler twins? Find out in this brand new romance from New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter, writing with her daughter-in-law Jean Brunstetter.

Editorial Reviews

The Lopsided Christmas Cake by Wanda E. and Jean Brunstetter is a delightful Christian fiction story. It's a well written, quick and easy story to read and enjoy. Wanda and Jean Brunstetter have shared their knowledge of the Amish way of life in a loving manner with four main characters that were impossible to not like. I highly recommend The Lopsided Christmas Cake as a great summer beach read. However, be sure to not be misled by the Christmas in the title as you will enjoy this book any time of the year.

This Christmas-themed book is a good story about sisterly bonds, the promises we make and resiliency. The story takes a while to get started, but once it does, readers will be reminded that God doesn't take the same path in everyone's journey. Hopefully, there's a book two in the making.

The Brunstetters give us a look into the Amish way of life and show us that not all Amish people are the same, even identical twins. The recipe for the famous "lopsided cake" is included at the end of THE LOPSIDED CHRISTMAS CAKE. This is a very quick read and I was left wanting more. I hope there is a sequel in the future. Throughout most of the story, I felt like I was right there with the twins dealing with life's ups and downs. I love how the authors chose a story line that we don't usually get in Amish stories. Twins in their 30's who aren't married and living alone. This was the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

I could not put this book down! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the twins’ antics and adventures as they try to make a new life on their own for the first time and try to find love. There is a lot of humor in this book that kept me smiling.

Overall, this is a short and sweet book with a good dose of humor thrown in. I give it five out of five stars.

    This is sold as adult fiction but reads like a children's book. I read a lot of her books but I think she is getting sloppy trying to crank out too many at a time. At least I only paid 1.99 for it at a discount store. I won't be buying the follow up book.

    32 year old twin single girls, Elma and Thelma, have inherited their grandparents house and store. They move away from their family to live on their own and learn how to support themselves. You will laugh out loud at the many things they find themselves having to deal with, including a rat in the house, and an old wood stove that burns just about everything, and a lopsided Christmas cake that brings a couple of guys into their lives!

    This book is a very fun easy read that could definitely be read anytime of year!

    This was a cute, delightful book written by Wanda Brunstetter and her daughter-in-law, Jean Brunstetter.

    It's about twin sisters, Thelma and Elma who inherited their grandparents old house and store The twins are kept quite busy with the store and doing repairs to the house. I loved reading about Thelma and Elma who are completely different in the personalities and who say they will never separate from each other. They decided to bake a cake for the community auction and end up meeting two Amish bachelors, Joseph Beechy and Delbert Gingerich. Joseph has been wanting to meet Thelma and gets Delbert involved. I don't want to write too much about the book but I will tell you it's a quick read but very delightful. Both authors did an excellent job writing this book.

    I received a complimentary copy of The Lopsided Christmas Cake from the author and Barbour Publishing in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions that I express are strictly my own.

    Wanda takes us on a journey from Illinois to Indiana with the Hochstetler Twins, who couldnt be more dissimilar! As always, Wanda does a great job describing the area of Indiana that the twins settle in. So much so that the next time I get down that way Im going to eat at Tiffanys! Youll enjoy that although there are major differences between the sisters they are devoted to each other. And then love comes calling. What changes will that bring in their lives? You will want to read and find out. I enjoyed this book; it was a light, quick read that was fun and relaxing.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book but as under no obligation to post a review.
