The Coffee Corner by Amy Clipston is the third installment in her Amish Marketplace series. This was my first read in the series, but the backstory is sufficient, and it reads well as a standalone.
Bethany Gingerich is a twenty-four-year-old unmarried Amish businesswoman unsure about her appeal to men. She hasn’t had a boyfriend in years and has no prospects but is, not surprisingly, attracted to handsome furniture maker, Micah Zook.
Micah Zook lives and works with his grandfather and is content with his unmarried status but finds himself attracted to Marketplace booth owner, Bethany Gingerich.
Despite the mutual attraction, neither is willing to make the first move. Sadly, Micah is about to face difficulty circumstances. Will Bethany be able to overcome their reluctance and help him through?
The Coffee Corner is a heartwarming story of family, friendship, love, hope, and faith. The characters and plot are appealing. The pace is a little slow, but I enjoyed the story. I rate it 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all readers of Christian fiction, especially Amish fiction.
My thanks to Zondervan Fiction and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
