A Mother For His Twins: Review

I don’t even know what to say about this book. It was so sweet, so heart-wrenching.

4 stars

Prose: 4/5
Romance: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
Plot: 4/5


This was good! Nothing special, but very well-written. It was clear and easy to understand as well.


I LOVED this. There was a lot of emotional trauma that was dealt with over the course of their relationship, and I think the author handled it all really well.


The boys! Far too often authors don’t know how to write children, but this is one aspect that Jill Weatherholt absolutely nailed. They were so realistic and well-written!


Not too much plot outside of the romance in this book. There were some sub-plots, but most of it was focused on the romance, which I was okay with!


I would recommend this book to those who want a more three-dimensional romance with realistic problems. It was a little heavier than your traditional ‘hallmark’ style romance, which I absolutely loved.


Mentions of being assaulted and worse as a teen. Mentions of pregnancy, illness, death. Definitely for a bit of an older audience.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

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.
