Made the Grade: Amish Hearts Series, Book 5 | #BookReview #JoAnnBrown @LoveInspiredBks

Format: Paperback | Pages: 216 | Release Date: April 18, 2017 | Publisher: Harlequin : Love Inspired | Obtained: Wal-Mart

"A Ready-Made Amish Family" [Amish Hearts Series, Book 5] by Jo Ann Brown (aka J. A. Ferguson, Jo Ann Ferguson, Joanna Hampton, Rebecca North, & Marianne Ellis)

Author's Book Description : The Amish Nanny

As temporary guardian of two sets of young and energetic twins, widowed minister Isaiah Stoltzfus needs a nanny immediately. Keeping the kids happy and safe while also trying to run his blacksmith shop is becoming impossible. So when Clara Ebersol arrives to help, Isaiah is relieved. Able to soothe, teach and delight the children, Clara feels like family. Love–shy Isaiah knows that recently jilted Clara isn't looking for marriage, either. But with matchmakers—including four young kinder—on the job, Isaiah and Clara may soon find their hands clasped in matrimony.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars. As a way to escape her recent heartache, Clara agrees to become a nanny for two sets of twins who lost their parents and are now living with the widowed minister (Isaiah) in their district who was also the twins’ father’s best friend. Both Isaiah and Clara have past hurts they are trying to overcome and they are needed to help these precious kids to get over their loss too, as best they can. Living in close proximity to help raise the children brings these two closer together and meddling matchmakers seem to be plotting all around, but what will it take for Isaiah and Clara to really overcome their fears and open their hearts up for one another for good?

This was an intensely sweet novel about overcoming loss of love and loved ones. You get to read about how this mismatched family came together to help one another out. This novel was a great addiction to Ms. Brown’s Amish Hearts series where the characters are a lively bunch that care for one another so much that they’ll do whatever it takes to help each other. Plus, I thoroughly enjoyed getting updates about Isaiah’s relatives.

As for Isaiah and Clara, I found them to be very well matched. They have a sweet way of working together that makes their “family” able to function well, even though the circumstances aren’t the best. In addition, though Isaiah and Clara’s romance was slow growing, I enjoyed that even though their attraction was off the charts they didn’t rush into anything, making it so when they finally fell for each other even sweeter.

I recommend this novel and series to those looking for a charming Amish Christian romance!

Book Teaser(s) :
"I think she's special, so why shouldn't she?"
"And that is what makes you special, Isaiah Stoltzfus."
"What? Helping a little girl realize she doesn't need to be a grossmammi to wear glasses?" He waved to dismiss her words. "Anyone would have done that."
"No." Her smile had vanished and regret remained. "Not everybody. I'm going to say something that you probably don't want to hear, but, Isaiah, your friends are right. You need to think of marrying because you're a very gut daed."
"That's not the reason to get married." He rolled his eyes. "Don't you dare mention this conversation to the Mast girls."
His attempt at teasing her fell flat because she remained serious. "You're a gift to these kinder. They know it, too. I'm beginning to wonder if that's why they're not as grief-stricken by their parents' deaths. They have you, and they know you'll take care of them as Melvin and Esta would have."
"But I'm not their daed."
"You are. At least temporarily." ~ within Chapter 8
