Alongside her cousins who have booths of their own, Bethany Gingerich runs a busy and successful coffee and donut stand at the Amish market. Since she has café-style tables and chairs, her regular customers enjoy purchasing a morning treat so they can sit and talk to their friends. Micah Zook and his grandfather, Enos, visit Bethany every Saturday morning to purchase coffee and donuts before going to work at Enos’s custom outdoor furniture shop.

When Micah and his grandfather don’t come to see her one Saturday morning, Bethany begins to worry. And when she learns that tragedy has struck, she wonders how to help Micah in his time of need. Turns out he needs a friend now more than ever, and Bethany may be just the kind of friend that God has provided for him.

    This is an Amish Fiction, and this is the 3rd book in the Amish Marketplace series. I have read and review both Book one and Book two in this series before reading this book. I have to say I wish this book took place more in the Marketplace. I missed the marketplace setting in this book because there most only a few times in this book that took place in the marketplace. I also wanted the cousins to talk more in this book because that was some of my favorite things of the other two books.

I also wanted the cousins to talk more in this book because that was some of my favorite things of the other two books. This book was good, and I really loved it. I just did not love it as much as the other two because of the two reason said earlier. I have read this book twice (once the kindle e-book and second listen to the e-audiobook). I have to say both times I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was good. I would not say the audiobook was great, but it is a good audiobook. If you like audiobooks you should check this book out on audiobook, but if you prefer reading then check out the book. I do not think one was really better then the other. The kindle e-book was easy to read, and I read it in no time because I was so into the story. I have to say that Amy Clipson writes so well and brings all her books to life with her words. I was kindly provided an e-copy and an e-audiobook of this book by the publisher (Zondervan) or author (Amy Clipston) via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review about how I feel about this book, and I want to send a big Thank you to them for that.

    Years ago when I read the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series it was my favorite series by this author but now that title has some competition from this series. I just love everything about this series. I really love how the characters don't disappear. What am I talking about you ask? In some series you read the characters are in one book and that's it but in this book we get to see a continuation of the characters and stay updated on their lives.

In some series you read the characters are in one book and that's it but in this book we get to see a continuation of the characters and stay updated on their lives. We as readers make a connection with characters we read about and like and it's wonderful to keep that connection strong and we go forth reading other books in the series. The romance was sweet and tender, not rushed but you could tell they both cared for each other a lot. And the coffee flavors mentioned, oh my! I would really love to try some of those flavors. The faith message came across strong and the community rallys around a character to lift him up mentally and spiritually. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. Pub Date 01 Dec 2020 I was given a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you. All opinions expressed are my own.

Bethany and Micah's story is the third in the series featuring a group of female cousins. This book features Bethany who owns the Coffee Corner. Bethany has a great personality but can get down on herself when it comes to relationships. She doesn't think anyone will care enough about her for marriage. When she meets Micah, she tries very hard to be a good friend to him. She is not aware of the personal baggage that he brings with him. He has a very troubled past and came to live with his grandparents when his relationship with his father deteriorated after the loss of his fiancée. When both his grandparents die within a year of each other, he has to face up to past hurts and find a way to move forward. Will he and Bethany be able to have a relationship? I did like both Micah and Bethany, but it didn't mean that I didn't want to give them both a shake every now and then. They are both sweet and loving characters that need to realize that they have a lot to offer to someone else. Fortunately Bethany has a strong family to fall back on and they help her to make some good decisions and the ability to help others. The issues that both Bethany and Micah deal with are realistic and could happen to anyone, which is one thing I like about this series. They had an uphill struggle toward love throughout most of the story, due to the amount of heartache and hurt the Micah carried from the past and he wasn’t sure he could love again. I enjoy reading about the market and the many flavors of coffee that Bethany introduced were interesting. The secondary characters didn't play as large a role as in previous books, but they add just enough interest to remind us that they are all important in the lives of those who live and work in the area. The Amish Marketplace books are all enjoyable and I recommend them all to lovers of Amish Fiction. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Lauren Berst. I was pleased with the narration and enjoyed the use of subtle voice changes when reading the various characters. Her expression and tone were just right for this story. I was gifted a copy of this book upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

My one big issue with the story was the female lead Bethany, she seemed so unsure and doubtful of herself. Every time her cousins mentioned that Micha was coming to the marketplace to see her she would say no, it was just for her coffee. This became very repetitive and had me rolling my eyes towards the end of the story. What I did really enjoy is the message of how important family, friends and faith are. The relationship between the four cousins is adorable. Like I said, cute and sweet.

    The Coffee Corner by Amy Clipston is the third book in the Amish Marketplace series. Each book in the series can be read on its own, but I recommend reading this charming series in order.

Each book in the series can be read on its own, but I recommend reading this charming series in order. I thought The Coffee Corner was well-written with developed, realistic characters. Bethany Gingerich runs The Coffee Corner at Bird-in-Hand Marketplace where her cousins also have stalls. Bethany is an attendant at the wedding of her cousin, Salina to Will Zimmerman. This is the second cousin to marry and Bethany wonders if God has someone special in mind for her. She is smitten with Micah Zook. Bethany looks forward to his visits to her stall each Saturday with his grandfather, Enos. They never get more than a few minutes to chat about superficial topics. Micah is attracted to Bethany, but he suffered a terrible loss that makes him reluctant to risk to his heart. When Micah’s grandfather dies, Micah is devastated. Enos was his mentor, work mate, and best friend. He needs help in dealing with his grief, and it appears that Bethany is the one to assist him. The Coffee Corner is a touching story. It is one that will tug on your heartstrings. I liked the side stories of Bethany dealing with confidence issues and Micah’s problems with his father. We also get to catch up with Leanna, Salina, and Christiana. I am eager to read Leanna’s story in The Jam and Jelly Nook. The Coffee Corner is a moving Amish tale about family, forgiveness, fitting in, second chances, and love.

    Well, to be honest here I did learn that there were a lot of flavors of coffee.. Too many to count! I could practically smell all of the different flavors! And the donughts. Made my stomach growl! Another honesty I still didn't like Simply Sara Ann King. She hasn't changed much since the first book! I kept hoping but I guess it's not to be. I don't like people like Sara Ann. I did remember to tell myself that Jesus loves her too. The one person I can relate most to is Bethany.

I don't like people like Sara Ann. I did remember to tell myself that Jesus loves her too. The one person I can relate most to is Bethany. I felt in more ways than one that Clipston was really telling my story! I've felt like she's felt throughout the story many times and I still do. Another honesty I felt that towards the end the author tended to rush through the book to the end. No one can come to understanding that fast. It takes time to.find one's self so to speak. But I also understand that this is a work of fiction. A quote that I liked very much is " With God All Things Are Possible. " Yes, they are but only if it's His will. There is a time and place for every everything including the different seasons of our lives. There've been times when I was really angry at.God. But thank goodness for friends and a good husband to point me back to Him. For without Him I feel empty. I enjoyed the story a lot and there were some positives about this book. I finished this story in one day because I really wanted to find out if Bethany finds happiness. Clipston is a wonderful author! I always look forward to seeing what she comes out next. I'm never disappointed with her stories either! I highly recommend this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.

    Bethany and Micah's story is unique and special. A sweet Amish story about a troubled young man who reflects on past hurt and pain and is fearful of deeply caring for someone again. The young woman is gifted in many ways but feels overlooked by the Amish men . She compares her life with her cousins and close friends who are married and some have children. The struggles felt real and could easily apply to Englishers too. A death of a loved one affects many more than people realize. I enjoyed readin Bethany and Micah's story is unique and special.

    The Coffee Corner by Amy Clipston is the third installment in her Amish Marketplace series.

Bethany Gingerich is a twenty-four-year-old unmarried Amish businesswoman unsure about her appeal to men. She hasn’t had a boyfriend in years and has no prospects but is, not surprisingly, attracted to handsome furniture maker, Micah Zook. Micah Zook lives and works with his grandfather and is content with his unmarried status but finds himself attracted to Marketplace booth owner, Bethany Gingerich. Despite the mutual attraction, neither is willing to make the first move. Sadly, Micah is about to face difficulty circumstances. Will Bethany be able to overcome their reluctance and help him through? The Coffee Corner is a heartwarming story of family, friendship, love, hope, and faith. The characters and plot are appealing. The pace is a little slow, but I enjoyed the story. I rate it 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all readers of Christian fiction, especially Amish fiction. My thanks to Zondervan Fiction and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

The Coffee Corner is a heartwarming Amish fiction novel with character you’ll grow to love, and a plot that will touch your heart. The pacing kept me involved from the beginning and kept me until the end. Ms. Clipston’s novels always give me a strong sense of the Amish life, which is why I enjoy this genre. I listened to the audio version of The Coffee Corner, and Lauren Berst is the narrator. Her beautiful reading pulled me in right away. She brings the various characters to life and made it easy to determine each of them. Her ability to pronounce the Dutch Pennsylvania added greatly to my enjoyment of this lovely Amish tale. That is not the case in some of the other narrators I’ve listened to, and I have listened to a great many over the years. Bethany Gringerich is the heroine, and she stole my heart from the beginning. Her insecurities over her desirability as an Amish wife touched me at my core. It showed her deepest vulnerabilities. Her willingness to offer the hero her friendship, even though she believes it will cause her future disappointment if he doesn’t develop feelings for her only made me love her more. Micah Zook is the hero, and he too has issues with self-esteem. He grew up with a father who is constantly critical of him and his desire to learn his grandfather’s carpentry skills. He’s estranged from his family and lives with his gros-dadi learning his chosen trade. He’s suffered the death of the Amish girl he’d expected to marry, which caused the rift with his family. I could feel his confusion and fear when he finds he’s drawn to Bethany. The romance is sweet and gentle as with most Amish romances, and I enjoyed their journey to finding their happy ending. It’s a rough road since both don’t believe they will because of their insecurities. Bethany, because doesn’t believe the hero could possibly love her, and Micah, because of his belief he is not worthy. I truly wanted them to find their way to each other. If you enjoy Amish fiction with endearing characters, and a plot that will have you rooting for them, then you will love The Coffee Corner as much as I did. I always know I’m in for a treat whether I’m listening or reading one of Ms. Clipston’s delightful Amish novels. Happy reading and listening!

Micah is troubled from the loss of his fiance. Battling demons of his own can he overcome them to have a healthy relationship in the Amish community and Bethany? I read this book in almost one sitting. It isn't a light romance because of the nature of Micah's battle with his emotions but it is a sweet Amish story of hope, friendship and family. With Pennsylvania Dutch dialect making this feel an authentic Amish story. I look forward to the next Marketplace novel. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars!

This book focuses on Bethany, who hasn't had much luck in relationships and feels a bit down because her cousins and best friends have already found their love/happily ever after. Due to Micha's battle with his emotions over his past relationship, this isn't a light, easy romance. But, it is a sweet story that I read in a day. Hope, family, and friendship are key themes. The Amish Marketplace itself isn't as much of a focus in this story as it was in the previous books. If you're looking for an enjoyable, quick read, this is one to add to your TBR list.

I loved reading about Bethany and Micah's path to love. They proved that bad things happen, detours are taken that are not the best choices but love in each other and God will bring you back to where you need to be. It also stresses forgiveness which I believe is hard for everyone. Forgiveness in yourself and others takes love in yourself and others to occur. Each book can be read as a standalone so hurry grab your copy and then brew a cuppa and lose yourself in a beautiful story.

    This is Micah's and Bethany's stories. These two are very different. She is friendly and outgoing, and he is quiet and reserved. Her family is loving and supportive, and his isn't, except for his grandfather. She hasn't had much tragedy or hardship, but he has had a lot of both. He made some poor choices, but they come a long way together, especially him. Also, I hope the author gives Sara a HEA before the end of this series. This is Micah's and Bethany's stories.

    This was the first by the author that I read. I listened to the audio version of this book and was totally pleased with the narration and the story. I really liked the story and thought it was a cute one. Thank You to the netgalley and the author for allowing me to read and review this wonderfully written book. This book will keep your attention till the end. Loved it.

    I would recommend this sweet Amish story to anyone. Characters are trying to find their own way, while seeing what loves mean. Patience is a virtue and waiting to see if the man you love, loves you back, is worth the waiting till the last chapter of the book. I even loved it being on audio.

    A cute romance story, full of warmth and emotion. The storyline was well written and the characters were interesting. Would recommend to lovers of Amish romance. Thank you to NetGalley, Amy Clipston, and the Zondervan for an ARC of this book.

    A good, simple read. I had often wondered what were Amish Romances and Amish fiction in general all about. This was my first experience for this research ;) and I’d say it was a good one. I’m still not sure why there is an all genre of books for them but I think I need to read some more to find out. Anyway, this was a good listen. I really liked the family connection between the cousins and the small insights into Amish life (which as always interested me for being so different than my own). The a A good, simple read.

The audiobook narrator wasn’t bad but she sometimes made the main character sound very childish. I received an audio copy of this book via NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

I could see how Brittany and Micah were connected but Micah was shy and not much of a talker. He was also still grieving the loss of the love of his life. Micah didn't believe he had anyone in his life but his grandfather. When his grandfather passed away, Micah really spiraled out of control and no one seemed to be able to get through o him. The author writes with such power that I felt I was right there with them. I could feel his pain, I found myself just like the community praying for Micah. I believed God was with Micah but he was just in so much pain. Brittany wouldn't give up on him and I prayed God would find the crack in Micah that would let her in. This is a wonderful story, that will tug at your heart, and has so much emotion. Amy Clipston's writing reached deep within me and brought me through all they went through and brought me out with a deeper understanding of being there for someone.

    Amy Clipston is one of my favorite authors and this book did not disappoint. This is one of those books that you really hate for it to end because you feel like the characters are part of your family! I really feel like this is one of Clipston's best books!

This is the third book in the Marketplace series. Bethany Gingerich along with her cousins have booths that are set up in the marketplace. Bethany sells specialty coffees along with donuts. She tries different flavors of coffee along with different types of homemade donuts and the customers all love them. Micah Zook, along with his grandfather, are regular customers of Bethany's and through this Bethany and Micah have become more than just friends, although it takes some different things along the way to help them to realize their growing attraction is more than just a friendship. Micah has been through a lot with his former fiance passing away from cancer and then he goes through another tragedy in this story. He also has an estranged relationship with his family, in particular his father. Bethany and her family are there to help Micah work through his problems and as a result, he becomes an integral part of the Gingerich family. This is a great story about forgiveness, redemption and romance all in one story! Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher, ,Zondervan for allowing me the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. This is my honest and unbiased opinion!

The story was so heartwarming and comforting that my hands were glued to the book and I did not want to stop. I love how relationships develop by frequent customers at a business. We have frequent patrons at our library and anytime they are not here we at least wonder and sometimes tragedy does happen. Just like Bethany and Micah when the shop got burned down and all Micah needed was a friend and Bethany was more than happy to be there for him potentially developing into something more. I needed a book that puts a smile on your face and I am smiling from ear to ear after finishing this book. We will consider adding this title to our Christian Fiction collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

    I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for a honest review. The Coffee Corner by Amy Clipston is the third book of the The Amish Marketplace series about cousins that all have stalls in the Marketplace and find love. This story is Bethany's, she has a coffee and doughnut stand that is very popular because she creates such interesting and yummy sounding coffees. Every Saturday Micah and his grandfather Enos come to her coffee stand and she wishes she could spend more time with Micah. Unfort I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for a honest review.

Every Saturday Micah and his grandfather Enos come to her coffee stand and she wishes she could spend more time with Micah. Unfortunately because she is such an outgoing person she has found most Amish men dismiss her as flighty. Micah has had a hard life and he finds it hard to trust anyone but he really likes Bethany and while a part of him wants to spend more time with her, another part of him feels fear. This was a lovely story about two people that would be great together if they can get over their insecurities and fear. I enjoyed this story and it made me want to go back and read Bethany's cousins stories.

    The coffee corner by Amy Clipston. I am so glad to read another book in the series. My review of A Farmstand can be found here on my blog. Reading about Bethany and finding how her cousins were doing made the book more interesting to me. This author touched lots of points in this book. I enjoyed the characters and I can empathise with Micah. This is a good book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are mine.
