Temptation by Kathryn Barrett

Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Synopsis: Laura Hayes has been acting since she was an infant, making Hollywood the only home she has ever known. But when she moves to Pennsylvania's Amish country to film her next movie, she discovers there's more to life than a pair of Jimmy Choos and a Marie Claire cover.

Intrigued by the Amish simplicity, she's soon gardening and baking plum pies—and enjoying it. And when her neighbor turns out to be the local heartthrob and a talented furniture maker, she realizes that what's missing from her life might be the love of a good man—not to mention the perfect heirloom tomato.

Jacob fights the urge to question the teachings of his Amish beliefs—despite his desire to create furniture that is beautiful as well as useful—and struggles with his longing for the sexy stranger who makes him feel truly alive for the first time. As his attraction grows, so do his doubts, until he's forced to face temptation and decide once and for all what is truly worth the fight.


Review: Temptation can come in many forms but in this book it comes in the form of beautiful actress to a strict Amish man. Laura has come to Amish country to film a movie that she hopes will bring home an Oscar. Jacob is Laura’s Amish neighbor and local carpenter who helps her learn the simple Amish way of life. Away from Hollywood glamour Laura finds her voice in her life and movie but she also finds love with Jacob. Jacob finds temptation in their love for each other which is against his strict Amish beliefs. Ms. Barrett has a wonderful way of drawing you into the story with her details of the Amish community and there way of life... You feel a part of the story and care about the decision that is made by Laura and Jacob. Their decision to yield to temptation affects them and the people that they care about. This is not your typical love story –people from different ways of life find that they are more alike than not and true love makes those differences obsolete...
