Plain Again...Review

About the book:
Young Amish woman Amanda and international Cuban superstar Alejandro surprised the world by tying the knot. But for the celebrated singer, time doesn’t stand still after the big “I do.” Alejandro must return to his life on the road and into the fray of a demanding tour and his adoring fans. After their brief period of marital bliss, the new couple struggles under the media’s constant intrusion into their romance and fights to sustain the bond they first discovered at Amanda’s Pennsylvanian farmland home.

When the paparazzi report a juicy story that could threaten Alejandro’s reputation and cause Amanda to doubt their promises to each other, the two face a hardship that may put their budding union at risk. Can their love survive worldwide scrutiny and the distance his stardom creates between them?

Continuing off from Plain Change, Amanda struggles with Alejandro's fame and notoriety. When she must return home to the family farm because of her father's illness, she worries about the separation from Alejandro.

What I found most enlightening was Amanda's response and impressions to once again return to her Amish roots, after having lived so much in the world. Her awareness at the darkness inside her parents home because of no electricity, for example. Her gratitude that her husband offered financial help and hired a man to help on the farm. I did appreciate that Alejandro finally realized his manager was a jerk and disrespectful to Amanda and her faith. I enjoyed the honest discussions Amanda could have with her sister.

This is book 3 in the Plain Fame series, and it really doesn't stand alone. They are meant to be read in order. This one has more of an ending and from what I can gather, it was originally a trilogy. However, there is a fourth book in the series.

Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to review this book. You can learn more about Sarah Price here. You can purchase your own copy here.

Read 9/15
