The Farmer’s Market Mishap, written by Wanda and Jean Brunstetter, is a sequel to The Lopsided Christmas Cake. This is also a very good stand alone story.
Elma Hochstetler and her sister Thelma inherited their grandparents home and store. Thelma has recently married and is expecting her first child. Elma is now left in charge of the store and is living in her grandparent’s home alone. Thelma is only able to help at the store a little bit and their employee is moving. Elma has hired a new employee, but she is not much help as she spends a lot of time visiting. Elma is also left to deal with having to care for the home as well. There are many things that need repair. She calls in Delbert, a friend of Thelma’s husband to do the work. Thelma has decided that Elma and Delbert should get together and has many get together inviting both of them.
Elma, Thelma and her husband take part in the farmer’s market. While Thelma and her husband are looking around, Ben visits their table and visits with Elma. This is the start of a relationship between the two. But since they live 50 miles apart, visiting each other is hard. If they were to have a future together Ben would have to leave his mother and her farm or Elma would have to leave her twin sister and the store.
This is a wonderful little story. The story is so well written that it is easy to see Elma and Delbert are not meant to be together and I kept waiting to see if Elma and Ben could figure out how to move forward. Elma is kept so busy with the story, her animals, the house and her sister. I got tired just reading all that she accomplished.
This story will be greatly enjoyed by those who enjoy reading Amish stories. It is a good clean romance with a little mystery and suspense written in it.
