The Amish Marriage Bargain Review

January 22, 2020




My Review





I've been reading Love Inspired Christian romances for years and love them. They are short stories that have clean romance you'll never have to worry about your children picking them up and finding inappropriate content. 
This is the second book I've read by this author and the story was every bit

as terrific as the first.

The setting is a small town dairy farming Amish community in Iowa.
May Bender had her heart broken when the one she loved passed her over for her sister marrying her instead leaving May devastated and her husband a widow after her death at the birth of her baby.

Times are tough in this dairy community the smaller dairy farms jut can't compete with the profits the larger farms are putting out and the

organic milk supply.

Taking care of her niece brings her joy but it's the only thing keeping

her in her hometown.
When the bishop insists she marry her brother in law, the one who jilted her for her sister she's not sure she wants to do this.

How will May feel when her widowed brother-in-law, Thad Hochstedler explains the reason he married her sister?
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to what the author puts out next.

Published December 17th 2019 by Love Inspired.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you.
