For as long as anyone can remember, tourists have flocked to Paradise, Pennsylvania, where Amish buggies are as common as shops selling hand-crafted goods. But to attorney Julia Spenser, this town is anything but a paradise. Raised in foster homes, Julia has succeeded in life only through steely determination and independence. The close-knit Amish people are a mystery to her. But loyal veterinarian Simon Thomas knows them well and is fiercely protective of their simple ways, which are increasingly threatened by the outside world. When Julia agrees to defend a local teenager charged in a case involving an Amish boy, she and Simon find themselves on opposite sides of an intense and emotional legal battle. Just when it seems they will never understand one another, God has something to teach them both about the poser of forgiveness...and the joys to be found in Paradise.

Review 1 for Love Finds You in Paradise, Pennsylvania - eBook
Love Finds You in Paradise, PA was my second experience with a new and delightful series of books published by Summerside Press. I was so excited to read another one of these books, and author Loree Lough did not disappoint with her first offering in this series.
Love Finds You in Paradise, PA constantly left me with a smile on my face and an eagerness to get to the next page. The emotions shown between Simon and Julia were very natural and believable, and I found myself rooting for their relationship to succeed right to the very end. Even though this book is definitely geared as a romance, issues such as justice and loss are things that Simon and Julia must face as they are getting to know each other.
Simon and Julia also share a very special friendship with a local Amish family with three children. The youngest child, Levi, provided several LOL moments for me, particularly when he is trying to learn why Julia has no husband. I appreciated the small amount of Amish culture that was added to give another dimension to the storyline. As a whole, I wouldn’t put it in the category of “Amish fiction,” but there are evident signs of their simple lifestyle and beliefs scattered throughout the book.
Overall, if you’re looking for that next light read, then this would definitely be a recommendation of mine. This was not my first experience with Loree Lough, so I knew that I would be in for a treat. I’m eagerly awaiting the next 2 books that she’s got planned for the Love Finds You series.

Review 3 for Love Finds You in Paradise, Pennsylvania - eBook
I read a lot of Amish fiction and I loved this story. Even though the two main characters are not amish, Loree Lough beautifully weaves an Amish family into their lives and provides such a lovely setting / backdrop to their story. Highly recommended! I love, love, loved it!
