ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A Note From Wanda:
Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be a writer. When I was in the second grade, I wrote my first poem about a moth. Luckily, I received encouragement from my teacher. During my teen years, I wrote skits that my church teen group performed during special holidays.
It wasn’t until 1980, that I took a course on writing for children and teenagers. I became serious about a career as an author. Soon after that, I began to write stories, articles, poems, and devotionals, which appeared in a variety of Christian publications. Later, I had 5 books of puppet/ventriloquist scripts published. *These books are currently available by contacting me. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
My first novel was released by Barbour Publishing’s book club, Heartsong Presents, in Dec. 1997. I have now written nearly fifty books, with over 4 million books in print. Many of the novels I’ve written are Amish-themed.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Widowed and jobless, Lydia King moves her son and herself to Charm, Ohio, to be close to her mother and help with her grandfather. Menno Troyer, a furniture store owner, is also recently widowed and the father of four energetic boys.

Award-winning, best-selling author, Wanda E. Brunstetter, became interested in writing about the Amish when she married her husband Richard who grew up in a Mennonite church in Pennsylvania.

She’s also written hundreds of short stories, articles, poems, and puppet scripts. Wanda and her husband have two grown children and six grandchildren.
I can never get enough Amish! I am a die hard Amish fiction fan and the first Amish novelist’s work I read several years ago was Wanda Brunstetter. Since then, I have been hooked on all her work. She’s a wunderbar novelist and each book she writes just gets better and better!
Lydia’s Charm is a wonderful story set in Charm, Ohio. There are so many emotions throughout this novel and each of Wanda’s tenderly created characters portray those emotions flawlessy. Lydia, Levi, Nona and Menno (just to name a few of the awesome characters!) are gripping and true-to-life. They quickly become your family. Each character has a struggle that they are dealing with and through Wanda’s fantastic work, each of those struggles felt like my own, especially Lydia’s. She really reached out to me and tugged my heart. But, Levi…..now THAT is an awesomely sweet character!
Wanda fills this 5 star book with everything from sadness to love and hope. She weaves God’s love and grace through her amazing work, make this novel unforgettable.

About the Book:
A chance encounter in a Rome hotel, two tremendously damaging photographs, and Hilton Joliet’s life is instantly altered. Previously working a dead-end job as an assistant in a portrait studio, she is now a freelance photographer for Game Set Match magazine, “the Us Weekly of tennis,” as she calls it.
Thrown rapidly into a jet-setting life of world-class tennis, the best seats at the best matches, and trailing the hottest young tennis stars and their model and actress girlfriends, Hilton, a former tennis player herself, can’t imagine a more fun job or a better way to jump-start her career while her boyfriend Luke finishes law school.
As Hilton spends more and more time away from home, grows closer and closer to Tanner Bruin—the world-ranked No. 3 player on whom she’s always had a huge crush—and becomes more and more hated by Aubrey Gage—the actress girlfriend of world-ranked No. 6 player Haidin Bayliss—Luke keeps a secret from her that could drastically change their six-year relationship.
It is through Hilton’s discovery of that secret, her love for the tennis tour, and her front-row glimpse into its most high-profile relationships that she starts to see how love doesn’t always mean near as much as she thought it did.
Daisy Jordan is an obsessive tennis fan and wrote this book so she could live out her dream-job fantasy through Hilton. Before deciding to write a book about the tennis tour, she wrote six other books, including Everything Happens for a Reason…, the Spin the Bottle series, and All That Sparkles Isn’t Real Sapphire. Even before that, she grew up in Indiana watching tennis all summer every summer on TV, and even attended a few pro tournaments. She now lives in Denver and religiously fills out brackets for every Grand Slam with her brother Josh.

I loved reading Hilton’s story. She was such a sweet character! Even when all went wrong for her. She was determined to over come it all and follow her hopes and dreams. I loved her character so much and Daisy did a wonderful job chiseling her with her flaws and her issues. Truly a wonderful way to hook her readers!
Daisy wrote this story with lots of laughs, lots of drama and lots of secrets. She pulled them all together to create a fabulous chick lit novel! It’s full of fun with the tennis-loved how Daisy added the details of tennis in the front of the book (makes it good for us who do not know much about tennis!), and it’s full of photography-I can picture the pictures that Hilton were taking and could really feel like I was the one taking them, and of course, it’s full of the romance that make a good chick lit story. Oh and did I mention that there is just a wee bit of suspense with some secrets from Hilton’s boyfriend’s past????
Definitely check this book out. It’s worth 4 stars and recommendation but I must warn you….it’s HUGE!! It will take some time to read this book- I had to really PUSH PUSH PUSH myself but I did it in just a couple of days. Well done, Daisy and I look forward to more books like this one!
