Review: Marry Me, Millie by Amy Lillard

Marry Me, Millie is a wonderful start to a new series! I really liked Millie and Henry, as well as Sylvie and Vern, who were side characters but were definitely involved in getting these two together.

Henry and Millie were both grieving in their own ways. Henry had been dumped a couple of months before he was to be married and Millie was a young, pregnant widow. They both had given up on the idea of finding love again. Yet, these two really hit it off right away and it was clear that they were developing feelings for each other.

Millie had a lot of emotional ups and downs in the book, yet it made a lot of sense as she was dealing with quite a bit. Henry was a character that I couldn’t help but like right away. He was definitely a good and patient man.

The author has introduced another charming Amish community with this book. I’m looking forward to reading more stories in this setting.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Award-winning, USA Today bestselling author Amy Lillard’s uplifting new series unites a “Widows Club” of women who share solace, friendship, and faith in the Amish community of Paradise Valley, Missouri. In this series starter, a young pregnant widow running a B&B meets a handsome outsider who begins to make her believe in love again.

When her young husband died unexpectedly, Millie Bauman thought her life was over too–until she learned she was carrying his child. Now, as she awaits the baby’s arrival, Millie’s sure her future will revolve around motherhood, the B&B she runs with her Aunt Sylvie, and the beloved Whoopie Pies her Widows Club whips up each week. But when a handsome newcomer arrives in town, Millie is intrigued, and the club wonders if Millie might find a second chance at love…

Henry King plans to stay in Paradise Valley long enough to take care of some family business, and hopefully mend the heartache of his own lost love. As Henry and Millie cross paths, it’s clear their neighbors are gently trying to play matchmaker. Not wanting to disappoint, the two pretend to play along–but life gets complicated when a true and tender affection grows. As Millie gets ready to welcome her baby, they must rely on faith and fate to decide if they should risk their hearts on love again…

Amy loves nothing more than a good book. Except for her family…and maybe homemade tacos…and nail polish. But reading and writing are definitely way up on the list.

Born and bred in Mississippi, Amy is a transplanted Southern Belle who now lives in Oklahoma with her deputy husband, their genius son, and three spoiled cats. ^..^

When she’s not creating happy endings, she has a variety of hobbies, but her favorite is whatever gets her out of housework.

Amy is an award winning author with more than forty novels and novellas in print. She loves to hear from readers.
