Amish Weddings By Leslie Gould

Gould's Series Concludes in Love and Marriage
Gregarious Rose Lehman, who's always the life of the Amish youth singings, is determined to marry the bishop's son, Reuben Byler--until the handsome Army buddy of her future brother-in-law shows up in Lancaster County. In comparison to Trevor, Reuben seems downright boring. Trevor shares Rose's sense of fun and adventure, and her easygoing disposition.

When her sister Lila's buggy is rear-ended and Lila is horribly injured, Rose finds herself with more freedom than she's ever experienced. Everyone is so concerned about Lila that no one realizes Rose is sneaking out with Trevor. Except for Reuben. But in his usual passive way, he doesn't confront her, nor does he address the situation with her Dat or anyone else in the district. Rose appreciates Reuben's discretion, but she also resents it. Part of her relishes the freedom she's found with Trevor, but the other part of her wishes Reuben would "fight" for her, as much as any Amish man would. Too late, she realizes the foolish choice she's made. Has she ruined her best chance at love, or is there another path to happiness she just hasn't seen yet?

This is book three in the Neighbors of Lancaster County. Gould reading all night, she out did herself with this one. This can be read as a stand alone and enjoyed but I recommend the whole series. 
I could not get enough of these characters. Rose and Lila have been so much fun getting to know. Gould wants you to know that no one is perfect and that forgiveness is a must.
Oh you will never see the weddings coming in this one. I loved them!
I have to say I loved the ending, I did not see it coming but I was a happy girl.
