The Book ✯✯✯✮
A sweet retelling of Beauty and the Beast with an Amish twist, Price delivers a cozy little read. It isn't much different from the original--just minus the magic and the actual Beast form. Instead, it focuses on a man who was a burn victim as a child and grew increasingly mean and reclusive as his Amish community ridiculed him.
Thankfully this was not an instalove romance. It was also nothing very new, but I found myself invested in Adam and Belle as people and stayed up late into the night so that they could get their happy ending all the faster.
If you need a quick, happy read, this one is for you. However, with the Amish focus, it also includes Christian lessons. I had no issue with this and took great comfort in the lessons it taught, but others that are not as religious may not enjoy this one.
Thank you for NetGalley, Sarah Price, and Kensington Books for the free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
