An Amish Noel by Patricia Davids (The Amish Bachelors)

An Amish Homecoming

Luke Bowman's homecoming is turning Emma Swartzentruber's carefully ordered world upside down. Gone is her rebellious girlhood crush, and in his place is a handsome man who seems committed to serving the community. Luke's even agreed to work for Emma's ill father, whose last wish is to see his daughter wedded to a stable, loving man. But Luke—a man who flirted with the outside world with disastrous consequences—is hardly marriage material for a good Amish woman. Yet this Christmas, when her family is flung into crisis, Emma finds that he may just be the one to capture her heart for good.

My review: An Amish Noel by Patricia Davids (The Amish Bachelors)


An Amish Noel was a little different from the average Amish story.  Luke Bowman made some real bad choices in his past.  He has to learn forgiveness and decide if he wants a Amish lifestyle or go back to English.  I admit to liking Luke.

Emma has to learn to forgive and let go of the past too.  She is keeping some secrets that are weighing her down.  Luke broke her heart when he left and would not take her with him.  Now her father wants her to marry a neighbor widower.

I liked seeing Luke being remorseful and trying to change.  He is a hard worker.
Lots of drama, Amish life, characters from previous books are back and it is a clean read.
I really cared about Luke & Emma and wanted them to work things out.
Hannah's character is really cute too.

I was given An Amish Noel to read for free by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of it.
