Guest Review from Donna Cline
What I think you should know:
A Mother For His Twins by Jill Weatherholt is a contemporary Love Inspired Romance. It is set in a small Virginia Mountain Town. It features some of the same characters as Weatherholt’s A Father for Bella, however it can be read as a standalone novel. This book follows Joy and her high school sweetheart who has returned to town with his sons after being widowed.
What I think about this book:
I adored Jordan and Tyler, Weatherhold could not have created two more entertaining or endearing characters. Their grief for their mother broke my heart. I also loved the small town and all of its charm. Nick and Joy were harder for me, while they were once in love while they were young and life was simple, that is worlds from where they are in the story. They have 14 years and a mountain of hurt between them. This was not a light and fluffy read, but did give me a lot to think about.
What you might need to know:
Nick’s Wife died from complications of Crohn’s Disease.
On the Night that Nick left town Joy was raped by someone she trusted, she also had a misscarriage that left her with infertility. She struggles with the emotional side effects with this throughout the book
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Jill
Back in 2019, when my editor sent me a cover mock-up for my third Love Inspired book A Mother for His Twins, I was thrilled to see the art department had used a picture of my hero’s twin boys, Jordan and Tyler Capello.
I had so much fun developing the characters of these two little rascals. Although they were twins, I wanted to make sure they each had their own unique personality.
Once I had Tyler’s character sketch completed, I went to work developing Jordan. Unlike his brother who is the outgoing one of the two, I wanted Jordan to be more quiet and shy than his twin. That’s when I decided to draw on my own experience as a child.
Like Jordan, I had a speech impediment when I was a child. I was unable to pronounce the letter R. Because of this, I was teased by my classmates. To make matters worse, once a week, my speech teacher would come and pull me from my classroom for my private session. I can still hear the giggles and murmuring that filled the room. Thankfully, with a lot of instruction and practice, I was able to overcome the impediment.
Life is full of obstacles. Looking back at what we’ve overcome gives us the confidence to keep pressing forward when we know God will never leave us.
