She's returning home from a date gone wrong when Ben Morton, Luke's older brother, a widower with two childrenâ€”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 blames herself. She's attracted to Ben, but believes she doesn't deserve a second chance at love.
Amy and Ben are both likeable characters, each hiding some private pain that stands in the way of their happiness. I also liked the minor characters, particularly Luke and Rachel, Ben's younger brother and sister. They were a combination of supportive and interfering, in the way that only siblings can be. The plot asks the age-old question of why do bad things happen to God's children, and I think it was well answered without being a clichÃ©.
I enjoyed The Nurse's Perfect Match (although I will admit to enjoying Falling for the Farmer, the first book in this series, more). This story starts a couple of years after the end of Falling for the Farmer, and is set in the same small community, Snowgum Creek, and while the two books have some characters in common, The Nurse's Perfect Match is a standalone story.
Overall, this is an enjoyable light read, and I'll be looking forward to reading the final book in the series, The Doctor's Return.

I loved this book by Narelle Atkins! A perfectly sweet romantic story with memorable characters and a vivid setting.
Ben Morton takes care of the family apple orchard. His wife died from cancer and left him with two kids. He questions God and his faith for the situation he finds himself in.
Amy Wilkins is a nurse. Her marriage was in shambles when her husband died. She can still hear him telling her how badly she was doing as a wife. She feels guilty because she failed as a wife and mother the first time around and is full of doubt and insecurities when it comes to her relationship with Ben. Can she know how to be a good wife?
How could a loving God allow Ben's children to suffer by growing up without their mother? How could God not let Amy have kids of her own? What happened to their faith in the midst of their lives? Ben and Amy must learn to trust God and open their hearts to love again. God can forgive their pasts and forge new futures if they will just put their faith and trust in Him.
Pick up this book today for an inspiring faith-filled romance! It will touch your heart and bring you closer to a God who loves and cares for each of us!
