An Unlikely Amish Match was a really good story. I enjoyed watching the romantic relationship develop between Susannah and Micah, two people who definitely seemed to be opposites at the opening of the novel.

The author did a very good job of helping me see the real Susannah and the real Micah. They were both nice people, yet Susannah had faced challenges that forced her to grow up and make some decisions earlier than Micah had to. But Micah finally had the chance to mature and to take

The author gives us a story of an Amish man who is not wanting to leave his faith, but really not ready to embrace it either. He is sent from his home in Maine to live with his Grandparents in Indiana, with the hopes he will grow up, and at 25 is he running out of time.
I liked the character of Micah, and even if he is still sewing his wild oats, he seems to have a good heart.
We also are offered a young woman who has not had an easy time, she has dealt with a hard time in her young life, but has

I really enjoyed this sweet book. I loved the messages that were in it.
Sometimes it takes time and maybe some life lessons to make us grow up in in a hurry. I know it did me. I don't really care for changes like that but then I don't think none of us do.
I'm so glad the Lord Jesus is with us always no matter what life throws at us. He is my best friend and I love to let people know that.
Life is screwy sometimes. But you know what? In a way, I'm glad it is! It would certainly be very boring if

An Unlikely Amish Match by Vannetta Chapman is the fifth book in the Indiana Amish Brides series. Each book in the series can be read on its own. I thought the characters were developed and realistic. I like Vannetta Chapman’s engaging writing style. I was drawn right into the story and just wanted to keep reading to the end. Micah Fisher is twenty-five and has been spoiled by his seven older sisters. He is a rebel with a cocky attitude. Micah is also a hard worker and a quick learner. Susannah ...more

Susannah Beiler strikes a deal with the bad boy in their community to stage a fake relationship. But as she gets to know him, she sees that he's more than a wild rebel, but can he accept her as she is once he learns her secret?



Micah is sent to his Indiana relatives for 6 months after misbehaving, is the baby of a family of girls, and he isn't ready to settle down just yet. He enjoys his pick up truck, and having his fun. He is intrigued by Susannah's proposition and is willing to play along.

This was a fun read with Micah and Susannah. Micah’s rebellious attitude and being spoiled by his sisters gave way to his immaturity and not taking responsibility at the age of 25. He was sent to his grandparents in Indiana to instill values and a work ethic but he was still his cocky self. Working for Bishop Beiler gave him an opportunity to interact more with Susannah. She had set herself up to remain single after all she had endured in life. Her decision to be his girlfriend while he was ...more

I know that when I pick up a book by the author , Vannetta Chapman I am in for a good read!! Her unique storytelling style keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end. This book was no disappointment! It met all of my expectations and more!! "An Unlikely Amish Match" is the fifth book in the Indiana Bride Series but like the previous books in the series, it is a standalone.


I immediately fell in love with Susannah, the main character, a flawed human being, just like the rest of us. Yes, she

If you enjoy Amish fiction, you’ll want to check this out. And, if you’re just a fan of sweet romances, you’ll want to check it out. Chapman doesn’t disappoint.

This is the fifth book in the Indiana Amish Brides series. It’s a quick read, but it doesn’t feel rushed. The author crafts characters and scenes that are realistic and well-developed. Susannah is easy to root for, and Micah … well, if you enjoy the “bad boys,” you’ll have an affinity for him. Both main characters are flawed, and you can

Book #5 of the Indiana Amish Brides was a fun and engaging book. Susannah Beiler has decided to protect the other young Amish women from Micah Fisher. He is definitely not your model Amish man and Susanna decides that the other women won't seek after him if she decides to date him herself.

This was a really good book and has lots of touching and tender moments in it. And there was humor as well. It was one of those reads that you decide to read in one sitting because you don't want to stop

Another wonderful book from Me. Chapman. The main characters are both struggling with what their lives have brought them and what they should do. Through faith and compassion they both realize the direction they should go.

Cute but fairly predictable. Typical enemies to friends to something more. I enjoyed the playful side of Micah matched with her stubbornness. It was a cute mix.

Thank you in advance to the author, Vannetta Chapman, as well as JustRead Publicity Tours for providing a complimentary copy to review. A positive review was NOT required, and all words are my own.

Not only is Amish Romance a fairly new genre to me (this is the second Amish romance book I’ve read); but the author, Vannetta Chapman, is new to me as well. In addition to writing Amish fiction; the author also writes:

* Amish Cozy Mysteries (these I would LOVE to find out more about)

A sweet story you won't want to miss!

Susannah Beiler is considered serious, cautious and mature for her age. But illness at a young age can do that to a person. Micah Fisher, on the other hand, is more of a free spirit. Maturity and seriousness don’t rank very high on his radar.
Shortly after Micah arrives in Susannah’s community, gossip begins about his bad boy reputation. Susannah tries to not to pass judgment, but she is concerned about him and how his ways will affect her friends, and she

Vannetta Chapman has written many lovely Amish stories, and I’ve enjoyed all of them. Susannah’s story, however, touched my heart in a special way.

Sometimes our past can keep us from moving forward into the plan that God has for us. This was true for Susannah, with her recovery from cancer. Since she could not have children, she sometimes felt that she was “damaged” and wondered if she should ever marry. Micah struggled with meeting the expectations of others and felt as if he could never live

If you enjoy Amish fiction then you know a book by Vanetta Chapman won’t disappoint. This one lived up to my expectation! Being a Love Inspired book it was a quick read, but still had depth to it.

The characters are well developed and likeable. Micah has a bad boy reputation and it’s time for him to grow up and make some decisions. Susannah doesn’t trust him. You know that’s a recipe for innocent romance.

As always there is a faith element throughout the story, written in a natural way. After all,

I have fallen in love with Mrs. Chapman's stories from the first time I read one about five years ago.
In this story Susannah Beiler feels it is her duty to protect other young women from the bad boy in town. Yes, she is going to date him herself.
As the saying goes, 'No good deed goes unpunished'. And as Susannah finds out it's always better to let the Lord solve a "problem."
I loved this story and it's quirks and turns. Even in this cozy romance of Amish life Mrs. Chapman finds a way to surprise

Micah Fisher has come to stay with his grandparents. Their neighbor Susannah Beiler thinks Micah could have a bad influence on other girls, so she insists he spend time with her instead. He good-naturedly agrees, and, inevitably, they start to grow closer. It was interesting to watch their relationship grow and how he interacted with her young twin sisters. The endearing story wraps its words around your heart. You can’t help but root for both main characters to find God’s best for their lives. ...more

Sigh...I really enjoyed this book. Chapman has a way of avoiding the trap so many Amish fiction writers fall into: making characters saccharine sweet, and so unlike the rest of us. Her people doubt, yearn, sacrifice, fail, repent - in other words, LIVE! At first glance, Susannah and Micah appear so different. The bishop's daughter lives strictly "within the lines," while visitor Micah has been sent to his grandparents to rehabilitate his worldly reputation. Yet they are both much ...more

Micah Fisher promised his parents he would spend six months with his Amish grandparents so they could straighten him out. Micah was used to dressing, and living, like an Englisher and was a coddled son.

Upon arriving in Goshen, Indiana, he meets Sharon, Shiloh, and Susannah Beiler, daughters of the local bishop. Sharon and Shiloh were intrigued by him, Susannah wanted nothing to do with him. Yet, she promised to be
