Umpteen years ago when I starting writing seriously, I never dreamed that one day I’d be writing Amish romance. Romance yes, of course. Naturally even. I wrote historical romances with a partner, then without a partner. After that I switched to short contemporary romances and then to romantic comedies and single titles.

Then I had the opportunity to switch things up and write an Amish romance.

There are many reasons why I love writing Amish romance, but I’d have to say the number one reason is the challenge of getting two people to fall in love under such conservative circumstances. In a culture where a young unmarried couple would not be allowed to be alone for long—if at all—the lure of a stolen kiss or a brief touch is too good to be ignored.

In Katie’s Choice, Katie Rose Fisher is past the age of singings and having her potential beau court her in the traditional ways of the Amish. Yet she finds herself attracted to the handsome English reporter, Zane Carson. Both of them feel this pull, but they also know that they can’t act on it.

They decide to become friends, each of them wanting to spend time with the other yet knowing that it will lead nowhere. So along with the conservative dating practices, there’s the lure of the forbidden.

English wanting to join up with the Amish is practically unheard of, but the thought does cross Zane’s mind. It’s just about then that Samuel Beachy returns, and Katie is forced into the choice of a lifetime.

Katie’s Choice is the second novel in the Clover Ridge Series and is available now.

    I really liked the plot of this book. I was instantly hooked on this book because of the first chapter. I was intrigued by Zane Carson who was wounded in the Middle East during a journalism assignment. Wanting to get back into his assignments in danger zones, he accepts an assignment to live with the Amish for three months and write about them.I liked Zane for some reason. He was honest about how he didn’t believe in God at first and then I liked watching his journey. I also liked Katie Rose Fisher and how her natural beauty caught Zane’s attention from the first day. I’ll admit that Zane had to convince me that he was ready for a relationship after the way he treated his “sort of” fiancé. I thought he was quite self-centered at the beginning of the book but really matured a lot while with the Amish.I am new to Amy Lillard but I really enjoyed her writing. She was to the point, which made her book so captivating. She offered details, but I think it seemed more “to the point” when it was from Zane’s point of view. I actually liked those contrasting way she wrote, whether she realized it or not. She captured the way the man thinks….that’s quite a feat!____________I received this book free from the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and B & H Publishing Group in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
