Publisher Description

Their bees produce the most delectable honey in all of Wisconsin. And the three Christner girls are fondly known as The Honeybee Sisters throughout their peaceful Amish community--where their spirited sweetness is attracting any number of hopeful suitors. . . Lively, determined, and independent, Poppy Christner isn't about to let some vandal keep making mischief on her family's farm. She's been outrunning boys and standing up for picked-on children ever since she was a girl--no matter how much her prideful, arrogant schoolmate Luke Bontranger insulted her. So Poppy certainly doesn't need his interference now, especially since he's made it plain he prefers demure, ladylike companions. In fact, if Luke doesn't stop helping her find the culprit--and growing humble and remorseful--she'll be forced to notice how handsome his change-of-heart is making him. And that could mean falling in love--maybe for a lifetimea Praise for Jennifer Beckstrand and her Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series "Full of kind, sincere characters struggling with the best ways to stay true to themselves and their beliefs." --Publishers Weekly "A delightful voice in Amish romance. Sweet and funny." --Emma Miller

Review

Self-confidence, practicality, and determination trump jealousy and meekness, and gendered behavior restrictions get shaken up, in Beckstrand s optimistic, sweet second story of the Wisconsin Amish honeybee sisters Beckstrand s characters grow by pushing gently at the trappings of traditional life without rebelling against it. Publishers Weekly The latest book in The Honeybee Sisters series is another hilarious and breathlessly romantic adventure. Aunt Bitsy continues to be delightfully amusing, her Amish roots blending with her Englisch experiences in ways that are both unconventional and laugh-out-loud funny. The added bits of more physical humor this go-around, as well as the love-hate nature of the romantic tension, give this book its own distinct feel from its predecessor. Beckstrand has a knack for combining humor and romance along with real characters, and this series is the best example yet! RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars Top Pick Take a plot that puts a fun, Amish twist on the classic boy-next-door trope Combine this with a cast of well-developed characters (including the truly unique Aunt Bitsy), and throw in lively writing seasoned with a generous pinch of humor, and you have a charming love story that will tempt even readers who ordinarily might shun Amish romances.
