Amish Weddings by Leslie Gould

Gregarious Rose Lehman, who's always the life of the Amish youth singings, is determined to marry the bishop's son, Reuben Byler--until the handsome Army buddy of her future brother-in-law shows up in Lancaster County. In comparison to Trevor, Reuben seems downright boring. Trevor shares Rose's sense of fun and adventure, and her easygoing disposition.

When her sister Lila's buggy is rear-ended and Lila is horribly injured, Rose finds herself with more freedom than she's ever experienced. Everyone is so concerned about Lila that no one realizes Rose is sneaking out with Trevor. Except for Reuben. But in his usual passive way, he doesn't confront her, nor does he address the situation with her Dat or anyone else in the district. Rose appreciates Reuben's discretion, but she also resents it. Part of her relishes the freedom she's found with Trevor, but the other part of her wishes Reuben would "fight" for her, as much as any Amish man would. Too late, she realizes the foolish choice she's made. Has she ruined her best chance at love, or is there another path to happiness she just hasn't seen yet?

My Review

Amish Weddings by Leslie Gould is book 3 in the Neighbors of Lancaster County.  Well developed characters. This book is one you will not want to leave. I would hope for a book 4 I could see another story here. Great book!! Leslie Gould is a wonderful writer. 
Rose is very determined to marry Reuben settle down and have a family with. That is until Englisher Trevor comes into town. He is full of fun things she doesn't see in Reuben.  Due to a buggy accident  her sister Lila is in serious condition.  It is while she is helping out with the care of Lila that she starts flirting and sneaking around with Trevor.  To only come to see her errors in what she did.  But is it to late for Reuben to want her again in her life after what she has done? Awesome series!
