Chasing down your one true love is not as easy as it looks

A Plain and Simple Heart, an exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith, weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new readers.

1884--Several years earlier, young Rebecca Switzer lost her heart to Jesse Montgomery, a rugged but dissolute cowboy on a dusty cattle trail near the Amish settlement of Apple Grove. Now she is grown up, and when she hears one day that he has been spotted nearby, her desire is plain and simple: She must see him.

Sheriff Colin Maddox is counting the days until he can leave law enforcement and follow his dream of starting a church. When a lovely woman, new to town and looking travel weary and a bit lost, gets caught up in the middle of a temperance riot, she is arrested along with the leaders. He can hardly believe she is what she claims--a Plain and simple woman. Nor can he believe how quickly he loses his heart to her. Can Colin convince her to forget Jesse and give him a chance?

A PLAIN AND SIMPLE HEART is book two in the Amish of Apple Grove series by talented duo Copeland and Smith. The first book in the series is The Heart’s Frontier and fans will want to read that book even though the books do stand alone.

A PLAIN AND SIMPLE HEART started out with a bang and didn’t stop packing a punch. Rebecca may be Amish but her rumspringe gives her experiences that most Amish never dream of. This was a lighthearted story, the Amish meets the wild west. I am looking forward to reading the third book in this series, A Cowboy at Heart. 5 stars. $13.99. 32o pages.
