What others are saying about Vannetta’s books:

Chapman adds a touch of intrigue with “Picnics and Prospects,” in which Faith Troyer and David Lapp, having failed to connect on a date years ago, find a decades-old package of letters. Solving the mystery associated with the missives may bring them into a relationship of their own. Amish fiction fans will love this.
