HIS NEW AMISH FAMILY
Her home -- and heart -- on the line in the heartwarming conclusion to The Amish Bachelors series.
Widow Clara Fisher's late uncle promised his farm to her -- but she can't find the documents to prove it! Desperate to stop her Englisch cousin from selling it, she works to help of auctioneer Paul Bowman. Paul's always been a wandering spirit, but will sweet, stubborn Clara and her children suddenly fill his empty life with family and love?
Clyde the matchmaking basset hound and his sidekick Juliet (a raccoon) are back along with eccentric Aenti Charlotte! And I do love Charlotte -- there's wisdom cloaked in the outrageous things she says, you just have to read between the lines. And how can you not love a woman who speaks both dog and raccoon? So glad this trio made it into the grand finale of The Amish Bachelors series!
I'm going to miss these Bowman brothers/cousins and their extended clan. These folks know what living in community means and the way they rally around Clara and her children just melted my heart. With Paul leading the way, much to his surprise, because he's the happy-go-lucky-never-more-than-three-dates kind of fella. But there's something about Clara that threatens to turn his life upside down if he's not careful.
Clara's serious nature is the perfect contrast to Paul's ready wit and carefree attitude. The way he teases her! The banter is divine -- a combination of wit and tenderness so you don't know whether to laugh or swoon-sigh. But as much as I loved their romance I fear I spent most of the read seething and spewing not very nice things at a certain character who is evidently up to no good but we can't prove it. That plot thread kept me on tenterhooks right to the very end.
Davids has given the Bowmans a spectacular sendoff. I'm giddy and weepy all at the same time. But no worries if you haven't read the other five books in the series -- you'll still be able to thoroughly enjoy this one...and I bet you'll be hankering to play catch-up once it's all over. I might just re-read the whole series from the beginning.
