An Amish Marriage of Convenience (Surprised by Love Book 4) by Rachel J. Good


 n Rachel J. Good’s sweetly romantic inspirational series, a bustling Green Valley Farmer’s Market in Pennsylvania is the perfect place for residents of nearby Amish communities to find the partner of their dreams—when, and how, they least expect it! Will appeal to fans of Charlotte Hubbard, Amy Lillard, and Jennifer Beckstrand.

When widower Stephen Lapp moves his five children from New York State to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, his only plan is to buy his family’s farm stand, Lapp’s Pastured Pork. That way, his brother can move closer to his fiancée and open his own stand. But on Stephen’s first trip to the market, his brave act of kindness nearly ends in catastrophe—until strong-willed Nettie Hartzler saves him—and makes an impression he can’t forget . . .
 
A widow with private heartaches of her own, Nettie has no interest in getting involved with any man, though she doesn’t discourage their respective children’s new friendships—despite Stephen’s contentious oldest daughter. But when Nettie runs into serious money worries and Stephen proposes a marriage of convenience, she’s distressed and conflicted. She’s come to know Stephen’s gentle heart and generous soul, and she can’t believe he’ll want her if she reveals the sins of her past. God has His own plans for the faithful, however, and this time they may include a second chance at love.

My Review


 
This book really did touch on many subjects. Especially with the outreach program at the center to help youth at risk. Was surprised that the Amish would be involved, but it did play into the reasons as to why Nettie had so many things that most Amish woman never deal with. What I did have a problem with was the disrespect shown by Joleen, the Amish that I have been involved with would never act that way, but it did add to the story!

I did enjoy how the author wrapped up this read, and we did have people living their faith!

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