More from Vannetta

When I married my husband 22 years ago, he had a 21-year-old daughter and 16-year-old twins. I was a single mom with a 10-year-old son. I was also a certified, experienced teacher. I could handle it. (Cue laughter) I had no idea what twins was like. I didn’t understand that special language they have with one another. I was perplexed by the way they could be fighting one moment and adamantly defending one another the next. Everything about twins confused me.


Now our children are all grown. They’re adults, and I wonder how the years have passed so quickly. The Amish Twins Next Door is my first book featuring twins, and I enjoyed every minute of writing it. I enjoyed telling a story about a mom who wonders if she will ever have a conventional family—because I was that mom. I also had way too much fun writing about a man who thought he could give parenting advice when he had no children.


Ultimately though, like all of my other books, The Amish Twins Next Door is a book about the over-arching grace of God and how it can carry us through all things. My hope is that you will laugh, maybe cry, and come away from the book feeling uplifted.

My Thoughts

The Amish Twins Next Door is written by Vanetta Chapman. This is book 9 in the Indiana Bride series. I have not read all the books in the series, but they can all be read as a stand alone book. First , let's talk about the amazing cover. The twins in this book, Jacob and Joseph are seriously the cutest. The art on the front of the book brings their characters to life. The picture of Deborah is exactly how the author has described her. 

Young single mom, Deborah has her hands full with Jacob and Joseph. They are certainly, double trouble. Their new neighbor, Nicholas (AKA Nick) gets off on the wrong foot with the twins and their mother. The twins are energetic, team up with each other, and tend to get themselves into a lot of trouble. Deborah is raising them as a single mom. She loves them more then anything and starts to doubt her parenting when Nick gets on to her and the boys. To make matters worse, Nick and Deborah's father have forged a business bond to raise goats. This means that Nick will be interacting with them. 

Nick comes up with a plan - the boys can work on various farm chores. In exchange of Nick teaching them to do more for themselves, and try and steer them from their mischievous ways. This sounds like a good idea, until Deborah's parents start telling her that she needs to court Nick. So Nick and Deborah enter into a "fake" relationship. Although, they start to develop feelings toward each other but don't want to let the other person know. 

This was such a heartwarming story. I loved all the characters. The author also wove in a story of no matter what we have done, how far we have fallen, God is always there with his everlasting forgiveness. The author writes her Amish characters and their surroundings so well.  This was one of my favorite Love Inspired Contemporary books that I have read. 

Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
