My Thoughts

The Amish Christmas Matchmaker by Vannetta Chapman is the fourth novel in Indiana Amish Brides series. Each book in this series can be read on its own, but I have found each one a pleasure to read.  I thought The Amish Christmas Matchmaker was a unique and creative story.  Annie Kauffmann co-owns Plain & Simple Weddings with Englischer, Priscilla.  They provide the wedding meal for Amish weddings with their portable kitchen and are quite successful. Then Levi Lapp wearing his cowboy boots and hat comes to town and starts touting Texas to recruit Amish families for a new settlement.  When Annie sees that gleam in her father’s eye, she knows he is considering the move.  Annie sets out to derail Levi by convincing him to go out on dates with some of her friends.  Annie hopes he will fall in love and forget about faraway Texas.   I had to laugh at Levi with his cowboy hat and boots spouting numerous facts about Texas.  Thanks to Vannetta Chapman’s word imagery, I could picture him in my head.  This is such a cute story featuring two very different people, but they do say that opposites attract.  We see the importance of praying for guidance and listening to God.  Sometimes we get so caught up in an idea, that we forget to see if it is what God wants for us.  The Amish Christmas Matchmaker is an engaging story that will hold your attention until you turn the very last page.  I appreciated the epilogue which nicely wrapped up this cute story.  The only thing I felt was lacking from this charming tale was the feeling of Christmas.  The Amish Christmas Matchmaker is an amusing Amish romance with Texas trivia, wondrous weddings, fabulous food along with one willful woman and a fanciful fellow.
