I always feel so drawn into Vannetta Chapman's books when I read them. I sure enjoyed this book. Noah Graber is certainly not looking for any romantic entanglements, with past failed romances he's satisfied just working hard and being a confirmed bachelor. Olivia Mae Miller is the matchmaker of the community but she herself doesn't have a beau.
I was very impressed with Olivia's maturity as she lives with and takes care of her grandparents especially her grandfather who is suffering from Alzheim

Be prepared, because I’m going to gush over this book. I’ve read lots and lots of Amish fiction, but this is truly one of the sweetest Amish stories I’ve ever read.

I fell completely in love with the characters of Olivia Mae and Noah. Olivia is sweet, caring, and self-sacrificing. She’s given up her own dreams to care for her aging grandparents, but she has done it with grace and love. Even though she’s young, these same characteristics make her a very successful matchmaker. Noah is a good-hearte

A Perfect Amish Match was such an enjoyable read. There were some serious topics covered, including caring for someone suffering from Altzheimer’s symptoms. The love that Olivia Mae showed for her grandparents spoke highly of her character and endeared her to me.

There were plenty of humorous moments in this novel, as well. That Noah! From his corny sheep jokes to the two dating disasters in the story, he had me cringing at times! But, it was oh so funny to read about!

And, finally, the romance be

This was a short and very pleasant read that besides handling the typical Amish romantic problems, also handles a serious issue. Alzheimer's.

There was not a lot of 'preaching' perhaps a tad more than I'm comfortable with, but that and the serious side-story aside, I love this book and I generally love this author.

A Perfect Amish Match is an appealing Amish novel. Vannetta Chapman created likeable and relatable characters that I wanted to know more about (they become friends). Olivia Mae Miller takes care of her two ailing grandparents. It has become harder as her grandfather’s memory becomes worse. He is frail and needs supervision. Olivia Mae is a sweet, kind, thoughtful woman who has been successful at matching local couples. She has a good success rate which is why Noah’s family believes Olivia Mae ca ...more

I have not read the prior novels in this series. Yet, this book can be read as a stand alone novel. It has been a long time since I have read a book from this line of books. Yet, I was drawn to this book because of the Amish theme. I am a sucker for a good Amish book. I did not get just a "good" book but a "great" book.

Where Olivia and Noah were concerned; I loved them both. Olivia had some spunk to her. Yet, she was not the only nice surprise. Noah had a good sense of humor to him. He had tons

A Perfect Amish Match is a delightful story of an Amish woman who is known to be a matchmaker for others in her community. While attempting to set Noah Graber up with one of her friends, a slow and unexpected friendship buds between him and Olivia Mae. As I read this book, I could feel the anticipation within me growing as I wondered and waited to see if they would acknowledge their feelings and fall in love. I love the community of the Amish and I love how Olivia Mae cares so deeply for her gra ...more

Vannetta Chapman never fails to draw readers into her stories. A Perfect Amish Match brought matchmaker Olivia Mae Miller story to life. She dedicated her life to caring for her aging grandparents that resulted in some sad situations but Olivia was determined to fulfill her obligation despite her brothers’ request to move to Maine. She was the matchmaker in Goshen but the dates she arranged for Noah Graber proved disastrous for her friends. Noah’s presence at the Miller’s home during a storm bro ...more

Noah Graber is a content bachelor, but he grudging agrees to go on three dates set up by Amish matchmaker Olivia Mae. But as the dates continue to go disastrously, he begins to wonder if he's been overlooking his best match.



Olivia Mae is devoted to her grandparents who are starting to have trouble with their memory. She is a strong, responsible young woman and sometimes she struggles to ask others for help. I love how she helped others, and cares so much about the ones that she loves.

The perfect combination of funny and poignant. Love a romance that keeps me laughing and sighing straight through to the happily ever after and this one sure did! Noah had a lot to do with that. He's just so....exasperatingly befuddled and incredibly insightful -- sometimes at the same time! My heart started melting at first meet but I knew Noah was the man for me...er Olivia Mae..on page 113. Call me smitten!

Despite multiple professional successes as a matchmaker, Olivia Mae is nigh on clueless

I am a huge fan of Vanetta Chapman and have never read anything penned by her that disappointed me. And this third in her Indiana Brides series, “A Perfect Amish Match”, didn’t disappoint me, either. In fact, it made me laugh, cry and be inspired by it’s unique and simple love story between Matchmaker Olivia Mae and the seemingly unlovable Noah.
Friendship, family and faith were all integral parts of this novel. Before Olivia and Noah discovered they were a “perfect match” they became friends fi

This was a really cute story in which love came from a slow building friendship that took both people by surprise. Reading how the Amish deal with health issues including Alzheimer's was interesting as well.

After having read so many of Vannetta Chapman's previous creations, I have very high expectations of all of her new books! Every one of them has met my qualifications for a great story. I must say that I was not disappointed with this first book in the series entitled "Indiana Amish Brides"! It is another novel that drew me into the lives of some very special new friends. I walked alongside them as they travelled their somewhat rocky journey of life.

The characters were so vividly and realistica

I read my first book by Vannetta Chapmen about the time I started book blogging. It was a holiday Amish romance and from then on , she was one of my favorite authors of this genre. She's written many books since then but A Perfect Amish Match is just as beautiful as the one I read all those years ago.


This book is perfect because of the two characters, Olivia Mae and Noah. There story is full of laughter and tears, well, really, life. They both feel so very real. Olivia is a matchmaker, who has h

As soon as I realized Olivia Mae was caring for her grandparents who are experiencing mental deficiencies due to age my heart was lost. Her unconditional love is something I think we all strive for. We could all learn a thing or two about patience and being kinder from Olivia Mae. Noah is no slouch either.

A Perfect Amish Match is a book I will revisit again and again. I usually gobble up Love Inspired and Vannetta Chapman books in 24 hours of starting them. I purposely made myself take it slowe

"...he'd returned home because he didn't know where else to go, but he was staying because he realized this was where he wanted to be."

I really enjoyed this gentle story of two "older" Amish singles coming to terms with "Gotte's will" for their lives. In their late twenties, auctioneer Noah and match-maker Olivia Mae each had past hurts that made them give up on the usual Amish goals of marriage and family. Predictably, God and Vannetta Chapman had other plans! I could identify with Olivia's pre

I just finished this quick read that kept my attention and had me page turning, and at times laughing out loud.
I could just picture that picnic that Noah takes his date on, and wait until he presents the horse blanket, he is sure a klutz when it comes to women and doing the wrong thing!
While we get to enjoy Noah’s dating, my heart was breaking for Olivia Mae and her grandparents, and what they are dealing with and wanting the best for them.
Sometimes we can’t see what is right before our eyes, bu

This was truly a sweet old fashioned romance, the kind that movies and musicals used to be made of! Vannetta Chapman introduces us to a modern day Amish matchmaker who has successfully paired many couples. She is quite confident in her ability to find everyone their mate including Noah, a free spirited Amish man with past relationship mistakes, who has no intention of settling down. This is a wonderful story proving that God has His hand in everything, even your own love life, especially when yo ...more

His three most serious relationships blew up spectacularly, and he has no desire to be humiliated yet again, or to be a disappointment to yet another woman.

A Perfect Amish Match ( Indiana Amish Brides #3 )
By: Vannetta Chapman
A Perfect Amish Match is book three in Indiana Amish Brides series. These can be read as a stand alone. This is a heartwarming Inspirational romance by Vannetta Chapman. I believe I have read about all of her books and I have not found any that I did not love. She makes her books come alive. I was drawn in at the start and could not put it down. I was not disappointed. I fell in love with the two main characters Olivia and Noah

I usually read Love Inspired Suspense. But when I saw that Vannetta Chapman had written a Love Inspired Inspirational Romance I decided to read it. Because I know that whatever Mrs. Chapman writes I'm gonna love!
What a great story! What fun!
Not exactly the "regular" Amish story simply because Olivia Mae Matches men and women together. People that she thinks would make great couples. And she does quite well unless it's with her own love life.
And then there's Noah . . . I loved Noah. He is quite

4.5 STARS!!!

I don’t read many Love Inspired books but I am so happy I read A Perfect Amish Match. It is a delightful story of two older singles (in the Amish community anyway) who have pretty much decided that marriage must not be in their future.

Chapman’s expert writing drew me deep into the lives of Noah and Olivia Mae. I couldn’t put the book down. There is a lot of living packed into these pages.

Beautiful prose and some seriously romantic moments definitely made my breath hitch a

Vannetta Chapman is one of my go-to authors, whether it be Amish fiction, suspense or even a mix of both, I’m ready to read!

Her latest release, for Harlequin Love Inspired, is entitled A Perfect Amish Match. Well-written, with characters I’d love to sit and chat with, A Perfect Amish Match is an Indiana Amish Brides story.

When Noah Graber returns home, with three failed relationships behind him, Olivia Mae Miller, the resident and successful matchmaker, determines to find a match for Noah.

A Sweet and Fun Romance

Olivia Mae Miller’s stereotypical description of a matchmaker: “Old, maybe. Using a cane. Peering at you over my glasses and shaking my knitting needles at you.”

In reality this description does not even remotely describe Olivia Mae.  Old? Glasses? A cane? Not at all.  Olivia Mae is young, pretty, and never been married.  Yet, she’s known in her community as a very successful “matchmaker.”  And she’s also her grandparents’ caretaker. Although being their caretaker doesn’t a

“A Perfect Amish Match” is book 3 in the “Indiana Amish Brides” series and part of the “Harlequin Love Inspired” April book release. I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but I enjoyed reading this funny, romantic, Amish fiction story.

I love the way the main characters in this heartwarming story grow and learn more about themselves and develop more assurance about their lives and about God’s guidance. It truly touched my spirit. In addition to the seriousness of caring for forgetful, aging grandparents, plenty of humor lightens the heaviness. And a sweet love relationship gradually develops. The setting and characters seem refreshingly realistic and the action natural. It’s an enjoyable novel with a plot that should satisfy r ...more

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I'm not a huge Amish fiction fan and while this book had some Amish flavor, the story was one that any lover of sweet romance would love.

I loved Olivia Mae right from the start. She is so good with her grandparents and doesn't have an ounce of "woe is me" in her. It's so fun that she's a "matchmaker"! It was humorous to read about Noah's thoughts on her matchmaking attempts for him.

Noah is a great hero! He wasn't looking for love (much to the dismay of his family) and is conte
