Home to Paradise (Coming Home #3) by Barbara Cameron

Home to Paradise (Coming Home #3)

Rose Anna Zook has watched her two older sisters marry two Stoltzfus men and has always thought she and John, the third Stoltzfus brother, would marry, make a home together, and have children. But John has other ideas. He's enjoying his Rumschpringe in the Englisch world a little too much and isn't interested in returning to the Amish community--especially to marry.
Rose Anna is determined to bring her man back into the Amish fold. John is equally determined to live his life free and unencumbered. Who will win this battle of wills? Will love prevail?

Firstly, I really like that this book works as a stand a lone. Although clearly it works in the series as it is the third...
This story can be paralleled to many people today - they want to leave where they grew up and make a life for their selves but sometimes need to or are forced to come back home for whatever reson  ( although the marriage part I'm not so sure about). These brothers left their Amish community to live elsewhere with another new life. However, as time went on, I think the two of the three brother were looking for 'familiar' and home since living as non-Amish (non-Amish? lol) is very different... So they went back home and married Amish women. However, the one brother doesn't seem able or willing to come back tot he Amish community even though his hometown sweetheart is still there and wants him to return to her. 
I thought this was a very cute and cozy little read. I read a lot of thrillers/suspense and mystery so this was a much slower and sweeter read. A bit of a change of pace for me but I really enjoyed it. The writing was smooth, and even though this is the third book I wasn't lost or confused.
