The Amish Christmas Sleigh by Kelly Long, Amy Lillard and Molly Jebber---GIVEAWAY!!

Through the snowy night, silver bells ring cheerfully, heralding a season of secret gifts, unexpected chances, and love's sweetest journeys . . .  
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?

My Thoughts
I enjoyed this book overall and had a great time reading it. I've detailed my thoughts of each separate story below.

A Sleigh Ride on Ice Mountain-- I really wanted to like this book. It has a great storyline and the writing is good, but to be honest, the amount of physical touching and inappropriate thoughts in the book irritated me. This book is supposed to be about an Amish man and woman but with all the physical things it didn't seem to fit. I enjoyed the storyline. I liked how the main character was kind and considerate of the girl he hires in order to help her and her brother. All the characters were well done. I liked this story but because of the physical things in it I give it 3 stars.

A Mamm for Christmas-- This was such a sweet story. I enjoyed every part of it. I loved the little girls in the book. They had such sweet hearts and their mischief made the book humorous. The tension between the man and the woman in the story also made me chuckle a few times. This story's romance element was perfect. There wasn't anything too physical or inappropriate. It was sweet and innocent, as it should be. I enjoyed this story much more than the first and would certainly recommend it. This was my first time reading a book by Amy, and I most certainly will again.
This story gets 5 stars.

An Unexpected Christmas Blessing-- I think this story was my favorite! It was such a simple story of a man new to town helping out a widow and her young children. But the story was wonderful. Molly's writing is great and I really enjoyed this story. There is romance, but it is sweet and subtle. I loved all the characters in the book. They were all believable and seemed like real people to me. I loved that Charity in the book was kind to her children but she was also strong and capable. Luke was a perfect gentleman and was great to her kids. Molly's writing has made me very excited to read another book by her. I highly recommend Molly and her books to others. This story gets 5 stars also.
I was blessed to receive this book from the CelebrateLit blogging program in exchange for my review. A positive review was not required.
