A Match for Addy by Emma Miller
In Search of True Love
Spinster Addy Coblentz fears she'll never marry. So her parents hire the new matchmaker who's moved to their Amish community of Seven Poplars. But Addy doesn't just want a match. She wants love. While some of her potential suitors are perfectly fine, only one man catches her eye. Gideon Esch is everything Addy's looking for: strong, kind—and handsome. But he's only a poor hired hand who can never give her family the stability they want. With her future happiness at stake, will Addy follow the rules…or follow her heart?
THE AMISH MATCHMAKER: Bringing love to Seven Poplars—one couple at a time!
About The Author
Emma Miller is a wife, mother and a grandmother who lives a quiet life in Delaware. She's the author of the Hannah's Daughter's series and is at work on her next Amish romance novel.
I found this story delightful, so realistic and a real page-turner. Welcome to Amish country and we meet an Amish Professional Matchmaker. Never knew they had anyone with that job, but makes perfect sense with some of the problems that are present in the children.
When Dorcus takes a job with Sara she is just taking a job, though she knows what Sara does. She meets the current people who are residing at Sara’s and one catches her eye, Gideon, but he is just a hired man.
I kind of shuttered when Dorcus, now know as Addy, compliments of Gideon, comes across as looking for a man with money and land. Gideon will never due, he will always be a hired man, and she has to take care of her parents.
Come and really meet Addy, now almost 30 years old, and really starting to bloom. Meet her over bearing parents; at least I felt they were. Go to singings and gatherings, and even the fair, and live a little dangerously.
Gideon is just following his parent’s wishes and has no desire to find a wife; he is just having a rather good time. Loved his bantering or could be arguing with Addy, they will really make you smile, and laugh. Picture Addy as she has an accident, sad yes, and she could have gotten hurt, but still funny!
Emma Miller has done it again, and I loved this book, and want more! I can see the potential for lots of great stories using a Matchmaker, such a wonderful idea!!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Love Inspired, and was not required to give a positive review.
