    Her Sisters Shadow: Identical twins Katie and Rosie Stoltzfus couldnt be more different: Katie is outgoing and gregariousso much so that Rosie feels unattractive in comparison and retreats to the background. The girls split their time between working in an Amish store and their own business, Two Peas in a Pod, where they raise and can their own vegetables and fruits. Then an unexpected business opportunityand one very special man, allows Rosie to see the unique and striking woman God meant for her to be.

    My thoughts: Her Sister's Shadow was a sweet romance involving two sisters. Ms. Cameron did a very excellent job writing two very different character personalities, one sister was shy and quiet, the other louder and more outgoing. I liked that the "one very special man" saw Rosie, noticed the differences, and courted her alone. I also liked Daniel who was understanding of Katie and knew when to step back. I enjoyed reading this story. 4 stars.

    His Brothers Keeper: Ben Fisher cant remember a time when he hasnt envied Mark, his more adventurous brother. Now that Mark is engaged to Ruth, Ben is more jealous than ever. A terrible accident on Christmas Eve results in mistaken identity with everyone believing Ben is in a coma, when in actuality, its Mark. Ben can use this twist of fate to finally have the life hes always wantedand with Ruth by his side. But can Ben find real happiness if it means deceiving his brotherand trying to ignore God?

    My thoughts: This is a sweet romance involving twin brothers. They both love the same woman and want what the other has. When an accident results with Mark being in a coma, Ben sees the opportunity to date Ruth. I don't like the way the characters lied, especially regarding identity, but it did make for an engaging story that I couldn't put down. 4 stars.

    Overall, this is a good collection of two novellas involving twins by talented Amish author Barbara Cameron. Fans will not want to miss these never published before novellas under one delightful cover. This would be a great book to give to the Amish fiction reader on your list.

    Twice Blessed by Barbara Cameron is two Christian Christmas stories in one book. The first story is Her Sisters Shadow. Katie and Rosie Stoltzfus are identical twins who live on their family farm. They have started their own business called Two Peas in a Pod. They take the items from their large kitchen garden (also items they buy) to make jams, jellies, and preserves. Katie is the more outgoing sister while Rosie is quieter and prefers working in the garden. Katie has always made the big decisions for the pair. Rosie, though, has decided it is time to live her own life. She would like different things. It will be a test to their relationship, but there will be more strain on their relationship as Rosie finds a beau.

    His Brothers Keeper is the second story in the book. Mark and Ben Fisher are twenty-two years old and they do carpentry work (make beautiful pieces). Mark is engaged to Ruth Stoltzfus (no relation to Katie and Rosie). Ben met Ruth first and fell in love with her. The couple had a little disagreement and Mark was there to comfort Ruth. A few days before Christmas Mark and Ben are doing the last of their deliveries when a snow storm hits. A truck veers over into their lane and they are tossed into a ditch. Neither of them had their wallets in their pockets, so the hospital staff were unable to identify them. Ruth identifies Ben as Mark because he was wearing the gloves she knitted. When Ben wakes up, he does not clear up the dispute. He wants to be able to spend time with Ruth (he loves her). Mark is in a coma. What will happen when Mark wakes up or when Ruth figures it out?

    I enjoyed both of these short stories, but they were really too short. The characters were not fully developed and both stories ended abruptly. In the first story we do not get many details on the girls (including their last names). I think an epilogue would have been great to finish off the stories and see what happened after Christmas with the two set of twins. I thought the first book had very little to do with Christmas. It happened before Christmas and some people were doing Christmas shopping, but that was about it. His Brothers Keepers had more Christmas (took place before and during the holiday season) in it which made it more enjoyable. The book was nicely written and was easy to read (just flowed beautifully). I give Twice Blessed 3.75 out of 5 stars. I just felt that both stories needed a little bit more work (a little more character development and eliminate the abrupt ending).

    I received a complimentary copy of Twice Blessed from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.

    Twice Blessed by Barbara Cameron is two Amish Christmas novellas in one book. The stories were well done, interesting, and a quick, fun read. They both center around identical twins, and I enjoyed the stories very much.

    Rosie is the shy sister who loves to be out in her garden whereas her twin, Katie, is vivacious, social, and energetic and loves to work at the Amish store in town surrounded by people and the busyness of work. Rosie is usually in the background with guys, but Katie has never had a problem having dates. Consequently, they are both surprised when a new Amish man is attracted to quiet Rosie instead of lively Katie. Will this affect their close relationship?

    Mark and Ben are as different as night and day. Mark never has doubts with his faith, is happy-go-lucky, and is considered lazy by many. Ben is the more responsible, moody one with doubts and questions aplenty. While driving home one snowy night, the twins get in a bad wreck with a big truck which leaves Mark in a coma and Ben with some broken bones and bruises. Disoriented when he wakes up, Ben is confused why Ruthie calls him Mark, but too thrilled to be the one "engaged" to her he doesn't tell her the truth until it's too late.

    These stories portrayed the love and connection between identical twins very well. I loved the unusual dilemma in the second story, but felt the conflict still wasn't resolved at the end. It would have benefited from another chapter to tie up everything. To me, the stories didn't really have much Christmas stuff to them. I wish they did, but regardless I enjoyed them both, and I definitely recommend this book to any Amish fiction fans.

    I was given this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
