Reader review . . . 
Since the death of her parents, Joann has accepted her life as the family spinster.  Working at a local print shop, she hopes to save enough money to purchase her own home.  But when the business owner decides to help his injured nephew, Joann not only loses her job, but is asked to teach her successor how to fill her position.  She finds solace in her secret pen pal relationship with an anonymous man who leaves letters at her favorite fishing spot.  Joann must decide whether to meet this man and take a chance on love.
Plain Admirer is a light Christian fiction romance featuring the Amish.  Setting the story in a print shop is a nice touch, as most Amish novels seem to portray them only as farmers and quilters.  Beyond that, it is your typical Christian romance with the Amish twist.  Enjoyable, clean, nothing unusual.
