My review: This book has some fun Christmas stories with the predictable ending. Plenty of humor, romance, and nostalgia made this a perfect book to read during the holiday season. I enjoyed all of them, but I think my favorite was "Her Christmas Pen Pal". I really enjoyed the story-line and the characters. Even though these are novellas, I think the authors did an excellent job developing each story. If you need a quick read this holiday season, I highly recommend An Amish Second Christmas. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher through the Booklook Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
