The Amish Christmas Sleigh Blog Tour With a Giveaway


The Amish Christmas Sleigh by Molly Jebber,
Amy Lillard, and Kelly Long is a 384 page book
in the Christian Amish fiction genre.
 It contains three separate novellas.


Kelly Long

For solitary toy-maker Sebastian Christner, hiring Kate Zook as his new 
housekeeper is simply the right thing to do. Now she can support her 
special-needs brother. But one taste of her independent spirit is 
showing him undreamed-of holiday joy—and making him long to 
give her a home for always . . .


Amy Lillard

Bernice Yoder has far too much to do to entertain holiday dreams. 
Even if she can help Jess Schmucker outwit his three mischievous 
young daughters, it’s impossible to imagine the handsome widower 
can see her as anything but a scolding schoolteacher. He never guesses 
how a magical Christmas Eve will open his eyes to love or how Der Herr 
will awaken their faith and hope. 


Molly Jebber

As much as Charity Lantz’s children need a father, the young widow 
isn’t sure her new neighbor Luke Fisher can ever be the right choice. 
They’re having more disagreements than snowflakes in December. 
Besides, he’s never given a sign he wants to be more than friends.
Can Gott show them a way past their misunderstandings to a forever love?

I do enjoy books that  several authors contribute to  so you get a variety of writing style.
This is a great collection of stories that will warm your heart during the holidays and
year round.

A Sleigh a Ride on Ice Mountain is about Katie Zock and her young brother who is
disabled due to a buggy accident.  She tries to make ends meet as best she can,
but it is a struggle at times. When she runs into Sebastian Christner she is offered
a job as his housekeeper. She accepts it knowing the money will be a much needed
relief and help. Sebastian is a toy maker and does amazing work that everyone likes.
There seemed to be a big rush to get Sebastian and Katie together and I was somewhat
surprised at the sexual implications in the story. The characters are well written and
you can't help but love them. Katie uncovers a secret about Sebastian that  could
pull her away from him. What secret does she find out? Will they find a way to make
a lasting relationship? There is a great line in the book that Sebastian says that I thought
the author wrote brilliantly. He saud, "I always think of kaleidoscopes as being a little
bit like life and faith- you can take what's broken and meld it together to bring about
something new and who,e, an ever-changing picture but an unchanging love of
yourself and others."

A Mamm for Christmas is a delightful story thst will feel you with warmth
and love. Jess Schmucker has three young daughters. Their names are Constance,
Hope and Lilly Ruth. They are all hurting from losing their Mamm a year ago. The girls
decide it is time to find a new Mamm and they scheme to help their daed find one.
I laughed at their shenanigans and their playfulness. Those girls meant business and
they have picked out who they want their daed to marry. There is one problem though.
Their dad needs to be pushed a little to agree to marry again. Bernice is their teacher
and becomes concerned for the girls when they come to school unkempt everyday.
What happens when she decides to address the issue with Jess?  Will the girls
matchmaking work? Will the children have a new Mamm for Christmas? This is a lovely
story that will bring a smile to your face. I loved the children and their pure hearts.
The writing is so graceful and filled with love and a feeling of hope.

An Unexpected Christmas Blessing is so well written, I couldn't stop reading it. Yes I
cried in a few spots and smiled in others. The author  has done a great job of sharing
the joy of Christmas in a truely remarkable story.
Charity Lantz lost her husband and husband and is raising her children, Josiah and
Beth on her own.  When a new neighbor moves in near her, he becomes a
welcome help to Charity. Luke Fisher is a hard working man who moved to get away 
rom a past that has left his heart broken. Will he be able to trust a woman again?
I loved the interaction between him and the children. He genuinely likes to be around
them and it doesn't hurt that he gets to eat some of Charity's delicious meals.
The relationship between Josish and Luke are very special. Josiah hungers for a father
and takes to Luke right away. When a disagreement arises between Chariry and Luke in
regards to discipline, will that put a stop to their attraction to each other? Take a 
journey with Charity and Luke and experience hope, forgiveness and love as they
try to find happiness .
