    A very pleasant surprise! I don't know exactly what I was expecting, but is was much better than I felt it was going to be. i mean, the title is a little ridiculous An enjoyable read!

    I think it's no secret that I quite like Amish-related books. There's something about the simplicity and utter disconnect from the world that appeals to me. And if you remember, some time back, I reviewed the fustrating yet addictive book Temptation (link to review!). Well, this is like that - English and Amish.But so different.For one thing, Annie (Analise), meets Rush (the Amish guy) when she stows away while running from a terrible lawyer (yes, lawyers are THAT scary). After a few misundersta [...]

    Annie is running from the danger surrounding her company. By chance she lands in an Amish barn for the night. That chance encounter will change her life forever. Finding family history and perhaps a chance at love are just a few of the things that happen because of her ride into Amish country.The characters were fun and the story was engaging. The book alternated between the current story and giving a little back story on the ancestors of the main characters. It lent an interesting twist to the [...]


  • Mallory

    Three stars because it is a decently written novel. Not winning any national prizes, but this book clearly had a decent writer and/editor. Another pro for this book is that there was no "easy" conversion for our English heroine to Amish, which, especially for a romance novel, demonstrates considerable restraint!!! In fact, by the end of the book our heroine Annie has only just converted her house to all propane and electricity! And! It is not even clear if she and her Amish squeeze Rufus are off [...]

    Review: Accidentally Amish by Olivia Newport 4 STARS This book is a little bit different as it followed almost 3 storylines in one. I liked it even though I cried in parts. Thier was no sex scenes or swearing. Annie Friesen was scared of her lawyer and boyfriend. He tried to sneak extra papers for her to sign. He wanted to go to a meeting with her and she kept saying no. In fact she planned not to go but to leave town and go to where a rental car would be thier. But Rick followed her and when it [...]


  • Jac (For Love and Books)

    One day I was on Netgalley, lurking for some new books to read when I saw Accidentally Amish. Now, here's something you may not know about me - I have a secret love for Amish Fiction! Every few months, I'll grab a few and read them like crazy! Well, when I saw that this one took place in Colorado's San Luis valley? I thought "Hey, a local Amish book?? I'm grabbing it!" The book starts out a bit slow for my liking, although with the quick action you could claim otherwise! Annie is running from a [...]


  • Kay M

    Accidentally Amish isn’t a typical Amish book in that the main character, Annie Frieson, is not Amish. Also, this work is actually 2 parallel stories interwoven into one novel. In addition to the contemporary, romantic suspense of Annie, there is a second story about Annie’s ancestors, who came to America in 1737. The main story, about Annie, takes the reader quickly on a chase as Annie flees from her former boyfriend and lawyer, whom she no longer trusts. Annie’s frightful flight from the [...]

    I have received this book for free in exchange for an honest reviewThis in no way affects my opinionI loved this book!!The characters are highly believable, and just completely pull you into the story.Annie is a very well off, very professional person. However her life gets turned upside down when things start to go funny at work. Add that to the fact that she 'finds' herself in the back of a pickup - which takes her to Amish country and you have the start to a very interesting tale. Enter Rufus [...]


  • Lynda

    How I love a good Amish story! And this was a GOOD – a VERY GOOD – Amish story. On top of that I love a good genealogical based story – and this book fills that bill as well.There is the driven 21st century woman. Smart. Successful. Determined. Generous. And wealthy by her own efforts before the age of 30. Enter someone who wants that wealth even though he certainly has not earned it. And who does not care one bit – not even a little teeny bit – who could be hurt as long as he obtains [...]


  • Barbara

    This book goes back and forth between the 1700's and present day. Mystery, faith, lifestyle choices, religion,family relationships, and a sweet romance are all included. The two stories are tied together, and the book held my interest enough that I certainly plan to read the next two books in the series. However, the flashbacks didn't work well for me. Although the author had great reasons to tell both stories simultaneously, I would have liked to have read the older story, and then have it lead [...]

  • Jennie

    I like Amish books, I really do. I'll read anything really, and have read a lot of things along the spectrum; erotic, inspirational, amish, historical fiction, etc. This novel seemed to just leave me hanging. The end really didn't have an ending, you were left wondering, well what happened to this person, that person, this situation, etc. I know there are going to be 2 more in the series (at least) so now I have to read those. Just once I'd like to read a book that just wraps it all up. I don't [...]


  • Donna

    This book started out well with Annie, a highly successful entrepreneur in danger of losing her business to a sharp dealing lawyer/boyfriend, Rick. Somehow Rick has turned Annie's partner, Barrett, against her. Annie runs away from Rick, hides in a truck and meets an Amish man. Thus starts the tale of romance which isn't badly done, but too many questions are left unansweredWhy is Annie running away instead of just dealing with Rick legally? How did Rick manage to turn Barrett against Annie? It [...]


  • Rachel

    Loved the writing and the character development, but the ending was so scripted, it was a disappointment. Too many Amish romances are beginning to put unlikely couples (Amish and English) together, with the idea that the English will convert at the end of the story. As rare as that is, it does not seem like a fair representation in a story like this. Truthfully, it would be more satisfying if the character maintained his religious faith and found someone within his faith community to marry. But [...]


  • Sarah

    This book started off good, as it held my interest with the touch of mystery when Annalise was running from Rick. As the story kept unfolding I found myself getting more and annoyed. It was unclear as to WHY she was running or WHY she wanted to protect herself, other then what was mentioned when it was said she needed to protect her buisness. I really had to push myself through this novelI wanted to expand my genre of reading, and have always been fascinated with the Amish culture, but I should [...]


  • Gwen

    This was a quick read, and fairly engaging. None of the characters stood out to me as particularly interesting. The corporate intrigue subplot was never resolved -- you never found out what the bad guys were up to, exactly, and that's unsatisfying. I like the overarching theme of choice, and there were some nice moments, but I won't seek out this series again intentionally.


  • Cindi

    Great story about what's truly important in life. I enjoyed how the author wrote two stories in one and how they came together in the end.This is one of the better Amish fiction books that I've read. I plan to read more of Olivia Newport's work as I found her writing style to quite pleasing.


  • Becky Pinson

    Love love love this book!


  • Virginia Winfield

    Fantastic. Loved it. Great story and romance.


  • CarolynB

    I loved it!


  • Amber Green

    An intriguing romanceThis was a very interesting story about how paths can divert due to a single decision. The characters in this story were very different from each other but also happened to have a lot in common, more than they originally thought. I quite enjoyed how the two stories progressed with the main characters from the past and present taking separate paths based on love and faith and what they felt God was telling them to do. It gave a new perspective on decisions and how something d [...]


  • Cathy Bickerstaff

    I had no idea that when I chose to read this book I would get a history lesson, too. I thoroughly enjoyed the contemporary story, but the historical references added another dimension. It also gave me things to think about. I had no idea when Amish migrated to America, or how they would be accepted. The parallels between the stories were thought provoking


  • Dorianne Swift

    Not your traditional Amish storyAn interesting tale with the realistic touches of known family history, Accidentally Amish explores the feelings some of us have about the complexities of the world we live in and give voice to a part of us that may sometimes whisper "What if?".


  • Regina King

    Decent bookWas a decent book. It just didn't click for me. I didn't like the ending. I was hoping for something a little more dramatic. Rather than just a few sentences.


  • Becky

    Varies from 1770's to current time. Interesting premise. There are not too many books with this aspect of Amish perspective.


  • Jessica

    A bit too easy and simplistic in the way things happen, but otherwise an enjoyable story.


  • Rachel Brand

    I think that if it weren't for the historical storyline, I probably would only give this book 3.5*. While the contemporary storyline was a good mixture of Amish, romance and suspense, the writing and characters weren't as strong as in Olivia's first novel, The Pursuit of Lucy Banning. It does seem as if historical fiction is where she's stronger, at least for now. That said, there were plenty of elements that I appreciated about this story. This is the second series I've read that's set among th [...]
