An Unlikely Match (Amish Inn #2) by Beth Wiseman

 


When sparks fly between a good Amish girl and a hunky member of the Hollywood elite, even matchmaking innkeepers Esther and Lizzie know better than to fan the flames. 

Evelyn Schrock has dismissed the attempts of every young man in her small Amish community to court her. She’s willing to wait for a suitor who shares her curiosities about life and faith. 

The only reason Jayce Clarkson is in Amish country hefting equipment for his famous father’s movie production company is for the paycheck. The homestyle cooking at the Peony Inn is a perk though, as is his friendship with Evelyn Schrock. If Jayce can endure his dad’s put-downs for a month, he’ll finally be in a position to make a fresh start—somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and the shadow of his checkered past. 

To matchmakers Esther and Lizzie, the widowed sisters who operate the inn, Jayce seems like a good man stuck in a life he doesn’t want. But the boy isn’t Amish, and that leaves far too much room for broken hearts. Despite that, Jayce and Evelyn start to realize that they can’t deny their growing attraction. Any path forward seems impossible, and they will have to learn what the future will look like when they leave their fate in Gott’s hands.

My Review


A return visit for me to The Peony Inn, and the delightful widowed sister's Esther and Lizzie who run the Inn along with some matchmaking.
Now with the arrival of Hollywood and RV's in their yard the sister's are at their breaking point taking care of meals and the Inn and non-stop laundry, they need help!
Grumpy Gus is back, and so is the bickering, but the sisters are so busy. Enter Jayce, who knew a rich Hollywood kid would know how to cook, but that is not all we learn about him and he has a growing friendship with Evelyn Schrock. Jayce likes what he sees about Evelyn's life, but could he forsake two cars, phones, and lots of money for the simple life.
This read kept me page turning, we become immersed in these people lives, their ups and downs, and you may need ear plugs when you meet Rose! With her there is another book coming! Yes!
I received this book through the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
