The Way to a Man's Heart by Mary Ellis

The Way to a Man's Heart (The Miller Family Series)
The Way to a Man's Heart (The Miller Family Series) is a sweet predictable, rather religious  Amish romance.  Leah is eighteen years old and loves to bake.  One day she sees that an abandoned rail car being renovated into a diner.  She meets the owner who offers her a job as a cook/waitress.  It isn't long before the owner offers her the chance to invest in the business and she does.  The results are predictable.

In a lot of ways this is more of a coming of age book than a romance.  Yes, there is a romance, but the book is as much about Leah learning (the hard way) what it means to be an adult.  

While most Amish novels are classified as Christian fiction, they vary in how much religion they portray.  This one is on the heavy side with scripture quotes and a character who has lost his faith.  

Overall, I'd classify the book as mediocre, not terribly bad, but not all that great either.  Grade:  C+

I'd like to thank Christian Review of Books for my review copy.  Check out their website for reviews of all sorts of Christian books.
