Today I am reviewing The Matchmaker, the second book in The Amish Classics series, by Sarah Price.
Here is a brief synopsis:
When Emma’s interference in her friends’ lives backfires, will the consequences be more than she bargained for?
Set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, The Matchmaker is an Amish retelling of Emma and covers the same issues of love, relationships, and pride within the community.
The Amish Classics series is a retelling of novels by Jane Austen in a contemporary Amish setting. The main story lines are accurately followed but told within the Amish culture and religion. These stories will introduce readers of Amish romances to these classics, while also being attractive to Jane Austen’s many loyal fans.

Oh boy… this story grabbed me right from the start! Like First Impressions (book 1) this is another book that holds your attention right to the very end… and an exciting conclusion.
Emma is determined to marry off all her friends; don’t you think it’s a little funny that she has NO plans to ever marry? Nope, she intends to stay home and take care of her dad. It’s an honorable choice, but I think she goes about her matchmaking because of this very thing!
Since she intends to stay single, she needs to feel like she’s helping others to find a mate. Unfortunately, she’s usually wrong…
Just because one couple married, she took credit for their meeting and “falling in love” and is determined to do the same for her other friends, including poor Hannah, who has a chance for a wonderful relationship and possible marriage – but not if Emma has her way! Oh… if only she could see what her matchmaking is doing to others around her.
Will Emma continue to match up her friends? Only time will tell… if you want to know what happens, read the book! I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
Will Emma interfere in her friends’ lives… or let nature take its’ course? – Tweet this!
God bless you!
