My Thoughts on Ruth’s Ginger Snap Surprise
Ruth’s Ginger Snap Surprise is a fun debut novel for this author that is sweet and you’ll love reading it as well! This is the quintessential sweet Amish romance. You’ve got Ruth who is very independent which isn’t the norm for Amish women. But she’s a widow who is able to run her farm and her business on her own.
And then the bishop suggests she change. That someone else might benefit from her farm and her home. But Ruth isn’t ready to give up what she has.
Jonas is also a widow and has a successful business that he needs a larger space for. He also has a sweet and precocious daughter while Ruth never had children and just has her goats, dog, and new cat.
Can the two get to know each other and come up with a solution that will help them both? And what should they do with the interfering bishop?
Great novel from a debut author. I loved getting to know the characters. The book read quickly and I definitely would read it again or another book by this author.
