FayeAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5EntertainingJune 27, 2021FayeAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Adorable elderly Amish innkeepers Esther and Lizzie are back in this heartwarming romance of forbidden love as a movie set rolls into their small Amish community.
Evelyn doesn't want to settle in love, and she is intrigued by Jayce Clarkson who is working hard to make his own way while putting in his time with his father's production company. I liked their easy friendship, and Jayce is a thoughtful man with dreams of his own, and I loved how he get's on well with Lizzie and Esther.
I like that this series follows the sisters Lizzie and Esther, one of my favorite parts of the story is the friendship between Esther and Gus, and I was so happy to see it continued from the previous book. Rose is a hardworking, well meaning young woman, and I couldn't help but admire her determination and industry.
Overall, a charming Amish romance, with wonderful engaging characters, a fun plot, faith and family.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Cindybazzy5 Stars Out Of 5Simply Fun to ReadJune 13, 2021CindybazzyI have enjoyed reading Beth Wiseman for years and her latest book " An Unlikely Match", does not disappoint. She does an outstanding job making her characters come to life and endearing to your heart. This book is the second installment to her Amish Inn series. You may want to read book one beforehand so you can be better acquainted with Lizzie, Esther, and their grumpy old friend/neighbor/man, Gus. However, it isn't a must.
The setting for this book is in Montgomery, Ohio at The Peony Inn, which is runby sisters Lizzie and Esther, the infamousmatchmakers.The story revolves around Jayce, an Englisher, and Evelyn, a young Amish woman. Jayce is the son of a Hollywood movie director that has come to Ohio to shoot for a movie and they are lodging at the Peony Inn, with the entire film crew. This story of family, friends, faith, struggles, is page-turning entertainment. There were so many fun elements to this read, it was easy and plain fun. I found myself getting tickled several times during this read laughing out loud. I didn't want the story to end.
I am eagerly looking forward to the next installment.
I received a complimentary copy from the author/publisher. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

Sisters Lizzie and Esther are back in this second installment of the Amish Inn series. New characters are woven throughout the story and old grumpy Gus has a chance to redeem himself. Many spiritual themes are thoughtfully explored but are never overbearing. A great, fun, light-hearted journey into an Amish community and romance.
sgreene015 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyable!June 8, 2021sgreene01Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This second book in The Amish Inn series by Beth Wiseman is an interesting story of Amish meets Hollywood! What a vast difference!
Evelyn Schrock happens to meet Jayce Clarkson, who is in the area to help his dad film a movie.
We learn many things about Jayce that definitely are not fitting for someone who might be interested in a sweet Amish girl. The innkeepers, Esther and Lizzie, who love to be matchmakers, feel Jayce is a good man, however, not Amish and could be a real heartbreaker if Evelyn should become interested in him.
There are many things in this book that bring laughter, particularly the character, Gus.
The book is so enjoyable that you do not want to miss reading it. I highly recommend it.
Thanks to Zondervan and NetGalley for the advanced copy. The opinions listed are my own.

I remembered the very memorable characters from book 1, such as grumpy Gus, Lizzie, Esther. I was so happy to continue this fun and enjoyable series. I enjoyed the book because it was a really light-hearted read for me. There was drama, laughs and so enjoyable.
I found this heartwarming romance very nice as Amish girl gets to know Enlish boy or "man" as Evelyn never fails to point out. A page-turning book that will keep you reading till the very end!
