The Amish Christmas Sleigh

Kelly Long, Amy Lillard, and Molly Jebber. Kensington, $15 trade paper (384p) ISBN 978-1-4967-0013-1

Three blended Amish families celebrate Christmas in this warmhearted romance anthology. In Long’s “A Sleigh Ride on Ice Mountain,” orphaned Kate is struggling to raise her disabled young brother. Gentle toy maker Sebastian offers Kate a job—and a lifeline. In Lillard’s humorous “A Mamm for Christmas,” three spirited sisters decide that their schoolteacher should be their new mother and insist that their widowed father marry her. Jebber transports readers to a small community in early-20th-century Ohio for “An Unexpected Christmas Blessing,” in which a widowed mother with two young children is drawn to her charming but secretive neighbor. Filled with traditional Amish romance elements, the tales cover a variety of themes while remaining true to the spirit of the holiday. (Oct.)
