REVIEW: Sadie by Sarah Price

Book Blurb: Sadie Whitaker is determined to be a good daughter, but her stepmother, Rachel, has made no secret of her overwhelming jealousy--or her desire to get Sadie out of her life. Rachel's latest plot involves marrying Sadie off to a widower in need of a mother for his unruly children--and she has convinced Sadie's beloved father to agree.

Left with no choice, Sadie flees her small Amish hometown of Echo Creek. Planning to hide in a nearby forest, she stumbles across a house that belongs to the seven Glick brothers. All outcasts from the Old Order community of Echo Creek, they generously agree to let her stay--and for the first time in ages, Sadie feels safe and needed, keeping house for them as any good Amish woman would do. Until that is, the Glicks' handsome cousin comes to visit. For though he awakens her heart's desire, she can't risk revealing her true identity, until love and faith give her the courage to take a chance on happiness . . .

My Review: So as soon as I got approved to read this book from NetGalley I started it and I really didn't put it down until I had finished it. I really enjoyed this Amish retelling of Snow White. I loved how Sadie and Frederick met before she met the seven little men in the woods. Her stepmother Rachel was a trip. That woman treated Sadie like she was nothing because she couldn't get pregnant with her husband's child. That's really no reason to treat someone like they're nothing though. And she managed to influence Sadie's father enough that he agreed that she had to marry John Rabor. That man is a tool and treats women and his children like shit.

I enjoyed the sweet romance between Frederick and Sadie and they always put a smile on my face when they were together. I also really loved the Brothers Grimm and I want to see them in another book. We were also introduced to a woman named Rhoda and she could possibly be little red riding hood. I really hope she gets her own book. I don't want to see this series end. I can honestly say Sarah Price is the only writer of Amish romance that I read.

Rating: ★★★★☆
