A PERFECT AMISH MATCH
by Vannetta Chapman
Every courting disaster has led him to her.
An Indiana Amish Brides story
After three failed relationships, Amish bachelor Noah Graber would rather disappoint his parents than try again. But when matchmaker Olivia Mae Miller agrees to provide courting lessons, Noah’s perfect match becomes clear—it’s Olivia Mae herself! With ailing grandparents at home, she hadn’t planned on love or marriage. Might a future with Noah be everything she’s been missing?
Such a sweet romance!
The hero and heroine of A Perfect Amish Match are close to approaching the “too old” threshold–both are in their late 20s–and each is somewhat unconventional in other ways. Noah doesn’t want to be a farmer–working as an auctioneer is his true passion. He’s had some bad experiences dating, and has decided that he’s perfectly happy as a bachelor, despite his family’s wishes. Olivia Mae still wants to marry and have children, but she knows that caring for her grandparents, who shouldn’t be left alone for too long at a time, is her #1 priority. She’s wary of asking for too much help from the community–she doesn’t like to take more than she can give, and believes that matchmaking services and knitting are the only real contributions she can offer–so no one really knows what difficulties she’s dealing with at home.
After a somewhat unconventional meeting, Noah and Olivia start a friendship (peppered with lots of really bad sheep-themed jokes) that, along with two disastrous dates, soon has Noah asking Olivia Mae for dating “lessons.” Though you can probably guess where this is going to end up, observing the journey these two go on to get there is immensely satisfying, and the ending is absolutely delightful.
Though this is the third in the Indiana Amish Brides series, it would work just fine as a standalone.
