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.

    A cute light Amish romance to get you in the mood for Christmas which it succeeded in doing. I loved the way the sisters were shaken out of their so predictable lives with a lopsided cake and in the embarrassing process found romance. Thanks also to Fiction Guild for sending me this book and introducing me to great authors whose books I had not had the pleasure of reading before.

    If you are looking for a sweet, light, Amish Christmas story, The Lopsided Christmas Cake might be just what you need. Twins Elma and Thelma find challenges and potential of love as they move to a new community to take over their grandparents' home and store. Much of the story is predictable, but sweet, fun, and quick to read.

    Thanks to the authors and publisher for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
