More from Vannetta

When I married my husband 22 years ago, he had a 21-year-old daughter and 16-year-old twins. I was a single mom with a 10-year-old son. I was also a certified, experienced teacher. I could handle it. (Cue laughter) I had no idea what twins were like. I didn’t understand that special language they have with one another. I was perplexed by the way they could be fighting one moment and adamantly defending one another the next. Everything about twins confused me.

Now our children are all grown. They’re adults, and I wonder how the years have passed so quickly. The Amish Twins Next Door is my first book featuring twins, and I enjoyed every minute of writing it. I enjoyed telling a story about a mom who wonders if she will ever have a conventional family—because I was that mom. I also had way too much fun writing about a man who thought he could give parenting advice when he had no children.

Ultimately though, like all of my other books, The Amish Twins Next Door is a book about the over-arching grace of God and how it can carry us through all things. My hope is that you will laugh, maybe cry, and come away from the book feeling uplifted.

My Thoughts

The Amish Twins Next Door by Vannetta Chapman is the ninth book in the Indiana Amish Brides series.  Each book in this charming series can be read as a standalone.  I have enjoyed each book in this sweet series.  I just loved this amusing story.    Two boisterous yet sweet twin boys (who are interested in the new neighbor), a grumpy new neighbor (who just wants to be left alone), and an overprotective mother makes for one entertaining story. I found The Amish Twins Next Door to be well-written with developed, realistic characters.  The story moved along at a quick pace.  I reached the end far too soon.  Deborah is a single mother of busy twin boys.  They live with her parents who believe it is time for Deborah to marry and provide a father for the twins.  They believe the single new neighbor is an excellent candidate.  Nick, the new neighbor, just wants to be left alone to run his farm.  Unfortunately, two little boys keep sneaking over.  Deborah and Nick come up with an arrangement.  He lets the boys help with the goats to help work off some of their excess energy plus give them guidance.  Nick helps Deborah by going out on “pretend” dates with her.  This will get her parents off her back.  You just know things are not going to go as planned.  I laughed often while reading The Amish Twins Next Door.  This was such a merry tale.  I can always count on Vannetta Chapman to provide a diverting story.  This book came along just when I needed it.  There are good life lessons in the story.  I like how faith was woven into the story.  I am eager for this author’s next novel.    The Amish Twins Next Door is an uplifting story with two boisterous boys, guileful goats, long-term targets, pestering parents, a brusque bachelor, a mollycoddling mother, a dating dilemma, and an exultant ending.
