Review: The Amish Matchmaker by Amy Lillard

This was a cute little story. I have to say that I didn’t really connect with any of the characters in the novel. I looked forward to them eventually figuring out who they should be with and finding their happily-ever-afters, but just didn’t feel romantic tension between the pairings.

I did enjoy the premise of the story and enjoyed the various outings that Jesse, Astrid, Imogene, and Ira went on. I went back and forth regarding my feelings toward the twin boys. At times I was appalled at the way they were behaving and other times I understood that behavior.

Although the characters in this story didn’t end up being ones that I felt a connection with, I still enjoyed the fun storyline.

ABOUT THE BOOK

While most women her age are searching for husbands, Astrid Kauffman has chosen a different path—writing romance novels and donating her profits to her beloved Amish community. But when Astrid struggles with writer’s block, she agrees to play matchmaker for Imogene Yoder, a widowed mother of rambunctious twin boys. Perhaps the diversion—and the entrée it gives Astrid to the stories among the Widows’ Club—will spark her creativity . . .
 
Fortunately, Astrid has just the match for Imogene: a widower she believes is the finest, most handsome man in town. In fact, Astrid realizes he’s perfect . . . for herself! Soon, the plot thickens as Imogene questions what kind of marriage she really wants, and Astrid wonders what kind of matchmaker falls for someone else’s match. But by letting faith guide the way, all involved may discover true love has written a far better next chapter than any of them expected . . .
