  1. Hi Amber. I did a review on Amazon for The Divine Secrets of The Woopie Pie Sisters by Sarah Price and Woopie Pie Pam. The complete series. I now am reading Murder Simply Brewed by Vannetta Chapman . Thoroughly
    enjoying it. I had preordered Hidden by Vannetta and it has been downloaded to my Kindle fire and will probably read that next.
    We went to Sugar Creek for Wanda Brunstetters Fan Weekend. I got to meet her and get to know her. We had a lovely time shopping in Berlin and it was a weekend we’ll never forget. To top it all off all the fans that went got to see the live show from Wandas book The Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club. It was the best live show I’ve seen and the actors bought it so much to life that we forgot it was a show.
    Staying at the Carlisle Inn in Sugar Creek was a very good experience. The most comfortable and charming place we’ve ever stayed at. Hope we get to go again soon.
    Returning home the van was so full of Apple’s, cheese baked goods and gifts from Wanda that we wondered if we’d get everything packed inside and us too.
