Amy Wilkins is a twenty-seven year old nurse working for Dr Luke Morton, and a widow. She’s returning home from a date gone wrong when Ben Morton, Luke’s older brother, a widower with two children—two children who seem to think it’s time they got a new mother.

Ben’s wife died three years ago, and he hasn’t had time to even think about dating since. But Amy catches his eye. And he still hasn’t come to terms with how a loving God could take his wife. Amy lost her husband eighteen months ago, and b

Recommends it for: to anyone liking a good clean romance written by a wonderful Christian lady....
The Nurse's Perfect Match should get a 10 star rating! One of the best books I have ever read! A truly brilliant story, so well written, entertaining, exciting story, an excellent theme, and awesome characters of a nurse and apple orchard producer! The story was filled with love, hope, faith, family, and lots of inspiration. It was funny in parts and had you smiling or laughing, as well as times of tearing up or shedding crocodile tears! Such a delight to read and the ending was divine! I loved ...more

Very heartwarming and a quick read.

The story begins with every young woman's nightmare but a timely rescue leads to a more hopeful outcome.

The small country town is always appealing, but it has its problems under the surface. Especially an orchard grower who is battling on after the death of his wife.

And then there's Amy who has been through a emotional wringer. No matter how much she fights her attraction, she finds herself longing for more than what she's ever been given...her first marriage a

This is a sweet romance story. It does what the genre its written for asks. It's a light and easy page turning very predictable read. When I read books by Australians, I love to see Aussieisms... You won't find that in this book, instead in some ways, it has been Americanised I guess to suit the publisher and general market of this genre. It's well written and edited,. this is the first book I've read by this author, and when I feel like a quick light read, I look forward to reading more of Atki ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love a story that just 'pulls you in' - this one was one of those...Even tough the charecters grew up together and knew each other for years, they'd grown apart and were unaware of the events of each other's lives as each went on to live their own lives. It's sad the way a woman so strong in the Lord and confident and happy can be destroyed emotionally by 1 man who was so caught up with the love of money and whose 1 goal in life was the acquiring more of it.

This book follows the previous book, "Falling for the Farmer." Ben is a single father trying to make a living on his apple farm. He remembers Amy from their school days, and is automatically attracted to her when he rescues her one night. The two begin hanging out together.

This book is set in Australia, and is written by an Australian writer so I can figure that the content is right-on with the culture. I really enjoyed reading this book for that reason alone.

I loved the romance. The two really

There was a lot of hope in this story. Amy returns to her hometown weary and sad. She works hard to make a new life for herself that will fill the gaping hole in her heart. Ben is still trying to establish a new normality for his young family years after the passing of his wife.
I enjoyed the way Narelle Atkins interlocks these two lives to show God’s love and blessing after heartbreak.
