Book Review: Operation Bonnet by Kimberly Stuart
Twenty-year-old Nellie Monroe has a restless brilliance that makes her a bit of an odd duck. She wants to be a private investigator, even though her tiny hometown offers no hope of clients.
Until she meets Amos Shetler, an Amish dropout carrying a torch for the girl he left behind. So Nellie straps on her bonnet and goes undercover to get the dish.
But though she’s brainy, Nellie is clueless when it comes to real life and real relationships. Soon she’s alienated her best friend, angered her college professor, and botched her case. Operation Bonnet is a comedy of errors, a surprising take on love, and a story of grace.
Okay, I'm not even sure I should admit this... but I absolutely loved this book! Every few pages I would break out into laughter, and my wife would look over and wonder what on earth was going on. Amos Shetler's comments from his Amish perspective made me laugh so hard I had tears in my eyes. And yet the story had it's tender elements, and provided opportunity to think about what our faith means in our world today. I would highly recommend this book and look forward to trying future works by this author. 5 of 5 stars.
