A Double Dose of Love (Amish Mail-Order Bride #1) by Kathleen Fuller

 

Prepare for a double dose of romance and fun when two sets of Amish twins find love.

Identical brothers Zeb and Zeke Bontrager aren’t looking for love. They have their hands full with a new horse farm, a half-finished ranch house, and a wild colt, thanks to Zeke’s hasty business dealings. Now Zeb must contend with Zeke’s bad decisions, hidden debts, and tendency to avoid responsibility, which threaten their good standing in the Birch Creek Amish community.

When a newspaper ad prompts Darla King to travel to Birch Creek in search of a husband, her identical twin, Amanda, promises their parents she’ll convince Darla to come home. After all, Amanda is the responsible and reliable one. She has always protected Darla, who acts on impulse and trusts people too easily. The sisters’ close relationship is strained as Darla asserts her independence and Amanda grapples with regrets of her past and the longings of her own heart.

When Zeb and Amanda join forces to protect Darla and Zeke from each other, none of them can possibly predict the outcome as all four come face-to-face with their highest hopes and deepest insecurities in the first installment of the Amish Mail-Order Bride series.

My Review


How a newspaper ad changes lives, twin sister's living a sheltered life, with overly protective parents, are about to leave their Amish community for the adventure, or biggest mistake of their lives. Identical twins Amanda and Darla leave home and head out to the unknown, both with different ideas, one that she will find a husband and the other is looking to have her sister return home asap!
When they arrive at Birch Creek, they run into, literary, identical twin Amish men, who are trying to prove they are now grown and can take on responsibility of owning a horse farm.
What a welcoming place these girls have arrive at, the people couldn't have embraced them more, even these twins Zeb and Zeke.
At first I thought there was a spark between the twins, and then well, some people really need to grow up.
Come and enjoy a sweet read, and see if parents can let go, and if there will be any matched twins!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
