Marry Me, Millie

Amy Lillard. Zebra, $8.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-1-42015-174-9
Lillard (A New Love for Charlotte) bakes up a new Amish romance series with an appetizing theme, set in Paradise Springs, Mo., where a neighborhood support group called the Whoopie Pie Widows Club convenes. Millie Bauman, six months pregnant and reeling from the death of her husband, is the newest member of the club, and she’s convinced she’ll never marry again. Her aunt Silvie has other plans, aiming to match Millie with Henry King, the grandson of her friend Vern. Henry, recently jilted by his fiancée (who was called by God to a remote Mennonite community), has no intentions to marry either. Millie and Henry enjoy each other’s company despite the fact that they’re the subject of the whole town’s gossip, but when Millie realizes she’s actually falling for Henry, she cuts him off. Sylvie and Vern, however, continue to scheme, while Henry discovers, “with all my heart,” that he does want to spend the rest of his life with Millie and her baby—but her stubborn streak may be too much for him to overcome. Lillard’s assembled a quirky cast for this new series, and, as a bonus, included recipes (yes, whoopie pies are in the mix). Readers will delight in this sweet love story and stay hungry for the next installment. (Jan.)
