The Amish Marriage Bargain by Marie E. Bast

Will a baby girl bring them together at last?

She’ll do anything for her niece…Even marry the man who broke her heart.

Nothing can keep May Bender in her Amish hometown—except caring for her baby niece. But the bishop insists that May also marry her widowed brother-in-law, Thad Hochstedler—the beau who jilted her to wed her sister. Can May risk her heart long enough to learn the real reason for Thad’s first marriage…and possibly rediscover their love?

My Review

This book quickly became a story I couldn’t put down, and I didn’t!
My mind was trying to wrap around the circumstances here, some that are presented, but what are they not saying? Yes, I was surprised when the facts unfold, and I had surmised the truth, but wanted it confirmed.
You have to love the little one here, and all seem to cherish her, and she is the glue to all that has happened, and appears to be the future.
What a part the mother-in-law plays here, and I really disliked her, but is she really the main problem here? You will be finding the answers, keep reading, and when finished I wanted more!

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