Yep, another week with me reviewing another Amish fiction title. You would think I would eventually get bored reading the same genre all the time. Yes, some of the plots are repeated and it gets a little cliched, but I'm never bored reading the genre. Actually, I also get a smile on my face I get a chance to review a new Amish title.

Forever Amish is written by Kate Lloyd, who has several books and novellas under her belt - all set in the Amish world, and is the the third and final book in the Legacy of Lancaster Trilogy. I recall reviewing the first book, Pennsylvania Patchwork, but missed out in reading the second installment, Leaving Lancaster.

The third installment centers on Sally Bingham, a woman who needs a break from her current life. She wonders if she is making the right choice of marrying her boyfriend, Donald, as he obviously doesn't care about her ailing father. Then there is the thing about her mother - well about who her mother is.

One thing in her life that she does has control of is her dogs. She raises them and train them for shows. Out-of-the blue, Sally receives several emails from an Amish woman, Lizzie Zook, asking her advice about buying a dog. Looking for a break from her life, Sally drives to the Lancaster County for the weekend, hoping to meet up with Lizzie.

Starting with a near collision with the bishop's buggy, Sally's weekend isn't going  as she had planned. What awaits her is a new look on her life, a starling revelation about her past and a possible new love interest.

Kate Lloyd is a wonderful writer and she cleverly uses her magic touch to write a great ending to the the Legacy of Lancaster Trilogy. I instantly connected with Sally within the first few chapters and I read through the book in one evening. Yes, the plot of a modern day woman visiting the Amish countryside has been to done several dozens times, but the plot here never felt old or boring. Overall, Forever Amish is a well-written Amish tale and I highly recommend it other readers.
