Plain Admirer by Patricia Davids
I liked Plain Admirer. Joann is feisty character. It would be hard to change where you lived every four months.
Joann has three older brothers with the youngest is 15 years older than her. They were never close to her. When their parents died the three brothers decided that Joann would live with each brother for four months than rotate. Now she is 26 things are
improving with her life. She is getting ready to buy a little house for herself when she is fired. To make room for the
owner's nephew Roman. Oh and she gets to train him too.
Roman has worked with his father in their lumber mill. Now he has a hard time working their. A car hit him and is one arm is paralyzed. He does not know if he will ever get full use back or not. His mother does not like him working their. He almost got dragged into the saw when his sling got caught up in it. She asked her brother to higher him in his printing business.
Joann has been writing letters to someone and leaving them where she fishes. Someone is writing back to her now. She has no idea who or even if he is Amish on English. She does let him know she is single woman. They can write and tell about their troubles to each other.
Someone is causing problems in the Amish community. Burning hay stacks, even trying to burn down their school house. Who is doing it. The sheriff is trying to find out but the Amish don't like turning to the government. Joann is suspicious of a young woman she thinks knows something about what is going on. She wants to tell the Sheriff about it but others say no.
This is a quick read. Has lot of fishing experiences and deals with forgiving others. I laughed and smiled as I read it. This is my third book of Patricia's that I have read and I have enjoyed them all. Look forward to reading her next one.
I was given this ebook to read and in exchange asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

So it's problematic when she's fired from her job to make room for the nephew's owner, Roman Weaver. His blue eyes aside, she simply can't stand him! Good thing she has the secret letters she's been exchanging with a mystery man to keep her going. But who is writing her letters? And could she possibly fall for him in real life, too?
