    I can honestly say this is one of the best books I have read lately Author Wanda Brunstetter and daughter in law, Jean Brunstetter, have a hit on their hands I do hope they pair up for some creative fun reading pleasure for readers.I loved reading about Elma and Thelma Hochstetler Although twins, they couldn t be opposite in personalities One being very serious, one jovial and enjoying life They really did compliment each other.This book had me rolling with laughter in many places Oh my, I was actually living what they were going through when they entered their cake for a charity event You will also enjoy reading about best friends, Joseph Beechy and Delbert Gingerich They too have very different personalities and you will chuckle with laughter at some of the things they go through.Don t get me wrong, it isn t all laughter There are some life teaching events in this story It just goes to prove to us all that God is in Control of our lives.I highly recommend this book to everyone Don t miss it There is also a bonus recipe in the back I plan to make this recipe in a few months.I wish to thank Wanda Brunstetter, Jean Brunstetter and Barbour Publishing for gifting me with ,The Lopsided Christmas Cake I was not required to write a review but how could I not write a review on such a wonderful story The opinions expressed in this review are mine alone.

    A quick and fun read Twins, Elma and Thelma inherit their grandparents store and home One sister sees a flyer asking town s people to bake cakes to be auctioned of to help for a fundraiser The sisters fix up the house but it s a bit overwhelming to them A lopsided cake involving a cat brings a chance at love for these twins.

    In trademark fashion, Wanda Brunstetter, along with Jean Brunstetter, has created another captivating Amish novel It s a fantastic start to a new series, and kept me hooked until the end The blended writing style of these two talented ladies was a refreshing experience Thelma and Elma s characters stole my heart completely Their characters are unique They are identical twins, but they are older, in their 30s That s unusual in books like these but I loved that twist to the story They are twins, yet so different These sweet ladies really kept me smiling Their devotion to their grandparents, God and to each other was really wonderful The mishaps of their lives, the possibility of being old maids and never finding love, the quirkiness woven into the story, all of it kept me engrossed in the story Watching one lopsided yummy cake change that, well it was not what I was expecting but was also refreshing I loved Joseph and Delbert s characters, too They really livened up the story This is definitely a book worth 5 stars and 2 thumbs up It s going to the top of my list of 2017 top reads If you love yummy cakes, quirky characters, God and family, be sure and snatch this one up You ll be left wanting mishaps from these lovely twins This review was originally posted on Cafinated Reads

    First, I have to say that I normally do not read Amish fiction When it first became popular, they were all so similar that they began to feel very formulaic after reading a great many But Wanda Brunstetter s, The Lopsided Christmas Cake, takes a totally different spin and provides a delightful, humorous read Identical twins, Thelma and Elma, have inherited their grandparents home and store upon their death At the age of 30, moving away from home is a definite step in a new direction for the young women They find their grandparents home is in great disrepair and the business is totally disorganized Having never had to deal with these types of things, the girls meet the challenge head on The problems that arise are due to the girls widely different personalities Thelma is a disorganized chatterbox and Elma is a tell it like it is, opinionated, OCD organizer When Thelma enters them into a cake contest to help raise money for some Amish families with health needs, the antics begin Add two young Amish fellows, one a stutterer and the other as opinionated as Elma, as well as a promise that the twins made as young girls, and romance has a bumpy road Very enjoyable afternoon Christmas read The recipes for the various Christmas dishes the twins made are included at the end.

    Thanks to the publisher for an advance reader s copy.What can I say about this book that doesn t contradict another point I ll make about it To start, the cover is hilariously terrible, but it s also what made me want to read the book The dialogue feels like reading an elementary school workbook In addition to blankets, I also brought sandwiches, cookies, chips, sunglasses, extra batteries etc , but I know that the author is widely respected for accurately depicting the Amish lifestyle, so who am I to think the book was light on plot, heavy on filler, and awkwardly written My overall impression was that the book was hokey, but this would be a perfect choice for someone looking for a heartwarming, clean romance I guess the bottom line is that this was definitely a guilty pleasure read for me, but for people that love the genre power to you I really enjoyed learning about the details of modern Amish life, and this was kind of exactly what I want to read this time of year.

    3.5 stars I have a longtime obsession with Amish and enjoy reading well written stories involving them This is a humorous, light hearted shorter novel featuring a set of 30ish identical Amish female twins It recounts their adventures in moving to a different state into their now deceased grandparents dilapidated homestead and store Though they are twins, they have quite different opinions and personalities We have adventure, romance and definitely humor I felt like this showed a lighter side of amish fiction, which I enjoyed, and liked that it made them seem normal and easier to relate to Even though the title suggests a Christmas story, it is only a passing part of the book I recommend it to those who enjoy amish fiction and want something a little less serious Many Thanks to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review
