A Beau for Katie by Emma Miller
The Housekeeper's Surprise Match
Agreeing to work for two weeks as a housekeeper to help a family in need seems like a good idea to Katie Byler. But when Katie sees the handsome, young—and single—Freeman Kemp for the first time, she wonders what she's gotten herself into. Freeman may be considered a catch, but the stubborn young man is driving strong-willed Katie to distraction. When the two of them decide to play matchmaker for Freeman's elderly uncle, though, their feud takes a different turn. The spark between them is strong, but can Katie and Freeman reach common ground to find their happily-ever-after?
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.
As the book opens Katie Byler is heading to Freeman Kemp’s home, actually Sara the Matchmaker is taking her. Now Katie lives with Sara and certainly is not interested in a match with bossy Freeman, and I chuckled as they arrive with Freeman inside as an invalid, with a broken leg, and having the same opinion of Katie, anyone but her!
Oil and vinegar, but maybe not, and Katie goes about her job, and what a job of cleaning up a two bachelor home, but she tackles it and she gets stubborn Freeman cleaned up too.
As her time there seems to go fast and about to end, the two may have made more than a not liking one another connection. I loved reading this and could just picture the happenings, both young and older relationships, yes more than one love connection!
I received this book through Net Galley and Love Inspired Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
