Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: The Amish Bachelors #5
Title: An Unexpected Amish Romance
Author: Patricia Davids
Publisher: Love Inspired, Harlequin US & Canada
Published: February 20th, 2018
This is a delightful story of moving on, filled with humour, love and two matchmaking pets – a dog and racoon! After Helen Zook’s fiancé broke their engagement to marry her sister, she was determined not to stay at home so travelled to stay with her Aunt. On the bus she is greeted by Mark Bowman and they have a turbulent exchange – the first of many to come! Although both are Amish, they are also both somewhat truculent, independent and driven. Mark is engaged to someone back in his home community and is staying with his Aunt and Uncle to learn and develop his trade as a carpenter. It is their very imperfections that made these a perfect couple!
The community, the quirky relations and the pets all bring so much to this enjoyable story. It is an uplifting, heartwarming, story involving faith, family and love which I really enjoyed escaping into. It is one that I didn’t want to put down until I’d finished it and I’ll certainly look out for more by this author and in this series in future.
I requested and received a copy of this novel via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
New beginnings. New job. New love? Amish Bachelors are full of surprises…

Sparks fly as Helen immediately butts heads with her handsome yet gruff boss, whose complicated past makes him hesitant to plant roots in Bowmans Crossing. But Helen’s eccentric aunt and a matchmaking basset hound have their own plans for Helen and Mark’s future…
