An Amish Arrangement (Amish Hearts) by Jo Ann Brown






Jeremiah Stoltzfus hopes the Amish community of Harmony Creek will provide a fresh start…until days before closing on his new farm, he finds a beautiful trespasser. Mercy Bamberger claims the property is hers, promised by her late grossdawdi. Jeremiah can’t turn out the single mom and her daughter, nor can he leave. His solution: temporarily sharing the farm until ownership is settled. Once a city kid adopted by a Mennonite family, Mercy yearns to make the farm a haven for unwanted children. But living beside the handsome Amish farmer has her yearning for everything that’s eluded her…laughter, love and a forever family.

jo ann brown bio


Jo Ann Brown has been creating characters and stories for as long as she can remember. Her first stories were populated with her friends and sisters. She wrote her first novel in high school, and it happily resides in the very back of her file cabinet. Fast forward through college, serving in the Army as a quartermaster officer, getting married, and increasing her blessings with three children...and Jo Ann sold her first book (a western historical romance) in 1987. Since it was published in 1988, she has sold over 100 titles and has become a best-selling and award-winning author. Romantic Times called her "a truly talented author." She writes romance, mystery, and paranormal under a variety of pen names. She currently writes for Harlequin Love Inspired Historical and Guideposts mystery series as Jo Ann Brown, and she writes paranormal, Regency romances, and mysteries for ImaJinn.

She has always lived on the east coast, but now resides in Nevada with her husband and two chubby cats.

My Review
I really enjoyed this different Amish read, and really makes you think about the legalities of buying property.

Can you imagine thinking you are a day away from owning a property, and because you are not from the area the owner is allowing you to go in early, you do and there is someone else there making themselves to home. Now what?

The author has us really wondering when an attraction happens between the two, one Amish and one Mennonite, one with children and one without, one driving a horse and one a car, can it be?

Love all the compassion shown here for the less fortunate, and the time and help to try and make things better.

This is a story that will linger with you long after the final page has been turned, I would love to go and spend some time with these big-hearted people.

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