Family friend Noah Bowman might just be her solution. A fake relationship will free them both from unwanted matchmaking plans.

Patricia Davids’ Movie Star Cast
What writer doesn’t dream of seeing their favorite actor and actress playing the hero and heroine of their novel in a movie? I like movies but I love books because a well-written book takes you inside the mind and emotions of the character. You feel what they feel. Great actors can portray those emotions but for me an important part of the story is missing when a book is turned into a movie. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have one of my books on the big screen. Yes, please! So, who do I want to see playing Fannie Erb and Noah Bowman?
I’d want Karen Gillan to play Fannie. Karen has the red hair, the spunk, and the infectious smile that comes to mind when I think of Fannie. She is a very talented actress and I think she could bring an honest depth to the role. I have no idea if she rides horses or can drive a buggy. That would be a must-have skill to play Fannie’s role.
Who should play Noah? That requires a little more thought. After careful consideration, and the joy of browsing through dozens of photos and bios of the top hot young male actors, I would pick Steven R McQueen from The Vampire Diaries and Chicago Fire. (I do love research.) Steven looks super-hot in his fireman’s gear so I think he could pull off an Amish baseball player plus he has that cute half grin that steals a girl’s heart before she knows it. And he is the grandson of my own youthful movie star crush, the unforgettable Steve McQueen.
Patricia Davids’ Song Playlist
I absolutely loved this sweet Amish novel! Patricia Davids has a knack for stealing my heart every time I read her books. I fall in love with all her characters and this book was no exception!
I loved Fanny and Noah! Their interactions were so fun! I loved the idea of the pretend courtship between the two, but I found myself praying hard for them because they weren’t paying attention to what was right in front of them from the start. Each page turn brought me something different with Fanny and Noah and I loved every second watching them come to terms with what God had in store for them.
Once again, Patricia Davids created a spellbinding Amish read that I can’t wait to share with others! This 5 star book has a forever home on my bookshelf and I can’t wait for another one like it. Ms. Davids is an incredible author who I highly recommend to all! Well done, Ms. Davids!
