Pebble Creek Series, VC Book Spotlight

This week I want to tell you about my Pebble Creek series. My wonderful editor at Harvest House, Kim Moore, asked me to write an Amish romance. I could set it anywhere, and it could be about anything. I’d written about Pennsylvania and Indiana, so I wanted to try somewhere new–somewhere different! WiscoPC collagensin was both of those things.

My husband and I travelled to the Cashton area and spent a week there. We learned a lot and met many sweet, helpful people–both Amish and Englisch. I learned that the Amish in Wisconsin live very differently from the Amish in Indiana or Pennsylvania! Though their way of living was more old-fashioned, they had the same sweet spirit and attitude as other Amish I had met.

But I couldn’t just write a romance. I needed to dive into Amish life! So the first book is about an Amish schoolteacher (a subject I found fascinating). The second is about an Amish woman who is managing a group of cabins, and the third is about an Amish woman who dreams of opening her own cafe. I loved these stories, and they did so well, that Harvest House agreed to let me write two FREE short stories (one to introduce the series and one to wrap it up). In case you haven’t tried them, the order is–

I do hope you will give them a try. If you’ve already read them, share this post with someone else! And if you’d like free bookmarks of the Pebble Creek series, just use the Connect/Contact button above and put your address in the message line. I’d be happy to mail you some.

    I have read all these books by Vannetta. For those who might read my reply and have not read these books, wow, you folks are missing out. I urge you to buy, beg, borrow, or steal (not really!!) these books. If you like books that will speak to you spiritually, make you laugh, make you cry, and make you want more, these books are for you!

    Vannetta, thank you for mentioning my book reviews! It’s a pleasure to read (and review) your wonderful books. I’ve learned so much about the Amish community, but even more important, I am truly touched by the love, devotion and faith I find in each story.

    I can’t wait to read your new books!

    God bless you,

    I loved this series. It is interesting to see how the different Amish settlements adapt to live in the areas which they settle in. Unlike the “English” who try to change the area to suit them, the Amish embrace and learn to live in those areas. I really enjoy reading about their way of life.

    I have this series of books in paperback. I will need to get Home to Pebble Creek and Christmas at Pebble Creek to complete this series. Are they available at at Barnes & Noble?

    Please, please put these together as a bound volume; the kind with paper (!!). They’re really quite delightful and very re-readable. I think they’d do well selling as a group and also individually as now. I have all the e-books but the paperbacks are rather hard to come by. Rather than buy each individually, it’d be very nice to have them all together. Hard cover would be even nicer but I don’t want to over-extend my welcome. LOL

      I would love to read this series. Recently ,through the Amish Reader web site I was introduced to Vannetta. At the time she was the only writer who would make a post on the site and I would post comments there. I was very impressed that she would take the time out of her busy schedule to always reply back to my post. So I clicked on the link to come on over to her web site, so now here I am. I’m just getting started on her books. Have read a Simple Amish Christmas and have preordered Hidden. I have Home to Pebble Creek and Christmas at Pebble Creek. So I have a lot of catching up to do .

      Thank you for this suggestions, Noelle. I’ll pass it along to my publisher. 🙂 Of course the final decision is theirs, but I agree it would be wonderful!

    If you need reviews, I’d be happy to post on various sites – Goodreads, Alibris, Book-Club-Queen, goodreads, Amazon and B & N. I would need books though. Then I share them. If you need another place for Amish, Seymour, Mo. near me has an Amish community. My doctor works with them.
