A Home for Lydia is the second book in The Pebble Creek Amish series. Gabe, Miriam, and Grace from book one appear in this story, and help Aaron and Lydia with their cabin rentals and more importantly their friendship. If you like to keep up with characters from previous books you'll enjoy this one.

Aaron and Lydia start off on the 'wrong foot' and it seems hard to see them together at first. The author adds humor to the story as well as showing how these two can help one another. Sometimes I forget that the Amish face the same trials and temptations as we do.  Vanetta shows us just how true this is and brings the story to a satisfying conclusion. I will be looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Book description:

A Home for Lydia, the second book in a new romantic series from popular author Vannetta Chapman, centers again on the Plain community of Pebble Creek and the kind, caring people there. As they face challenges to their community from the English world, they come together to reach out to their non-Amish neighbors while still preserving their cherished Plain ways.
Aaron Troyer simply wants to farm like his father and grandfather before him. But instead he finds himself overseeing the family's small group of guest cabins nestled along the banks of Pebble Creek. That also means he must work with the cabins' housekeeper, Lydia Fisher.
Lydia is the most outspoken Amish woman Aaron has ever met, and she has strong opinions about how the guest cabins are to be run. She also desperately needs this job. Though sparks fly between boss and employee at first, when the cabins are robbed, nothing is more important to Aaron than making sure Lydia is safe.

Together they work to make the vacation property profitable, but can they find out the identity of the culprit before more damage is done? And is Lydia's dream of a home of her own more than just a wish and a prayer?
