A Home for Lydia by Vannetta Chapman

 book title front This is a cozy story set along the banks of Pebble Creek in Wisconsin.  After his uncle dies, Aaron has to leave his home in Indiana and travel there to oversee the Plain cabins his uncle owned.  He's disappointed in their condition when he arrives and doesn't make the best first impression on Lydia, the sole employee.  Will they be able to work together to turn the cabins around?  Can they expose the danger among them while Lydia tries to guard her heart?
Will Aaron return home to his land or discover a new dream?

I enjoyed revisiting Pebble Creek and catching up on the lives of Miriam and Grace while meeting new characters.  This is the second book in the Pebble Creek Amish Series and I would recommend reading them in order because the characters in the first book feature so prominently in this one.  I liked Lydia and Aaron, but wished there was a bit more fleshing out of their relationship.  I also liked the danger element and seeing how an Amish family deals with a serious illness.  This is a well-written and enjoyable addition to the Amish genre.

I received this book free from Harvest House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

Here's the link to my review of book one:

Vannetta is a multi-award-winning member of Romance Writers of America. She was a teacher for 15 years and currently resides in the Texas Hill country.
