Covered Bridge Charm By Dianne Christner

Carly Blosser may not match the typical description of a conservative Mennonite woman—unmarried at 27, living alone, and careening around her Oregon neighborhood on a pink bicycle—but she has a soft heart for the elderly Mennonite residents at Sweet Life Assisted Living Facility, where she works as a caregiver. When Carly's plans for a new volunteer program go awry, she shifts her focus to one lonely resident named Martha. Adam Lapp, a wood shop instructor at Sweet Life, joins with Carly to reunite Martha with an old flame before her 85th birthday. Carly and Adam's hunt involves carved initials on covered bridges, digging up the past, and the appearance of a newcomer, who hinders the budding romance between the two. Soon, new clues sweep them all in a harried race to the finish line where love is sure to be the ultimate prize.

Covered Bridges Charm is an outstanding read. Christner is so good at writing a story with characters you fall in love with. But my favorite character in the story was Adam. I loved what he did with initials that were carved in the old bridge in the story. It is a heart warming story that I did not want to come to an end. The story is a little different but it's a good different. There are several stories going on at the same time in the book that you have to keep sorted.
I gave this book 4 stars. I recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the Author for my honest review.
