Nicki Mayfield’s Guide to Preparing for the Unexpected

At the beginning of Perfectly Matched, Nicki Mayfield and Ben Carrington are about to tie the knot AND adopt a toddler. Being a wife and a mother are foreign concepts to Nicki, who never dreamed she’d be either. Especially not within such a short timeframe!

However, just as Nicki and Ben began to move forward with their new family, a shocking revelation threatens their happily ever after and throws their perfectly arranged plans out the window. Thankfully, being a professional organizer Nicki knows how to prepare for a surprise or two.

Here are Nicki’s five best tips for preparing for those unexpected moments in life:

  1. Don’t panic. That usually only makes things worse! Take a few deep breaths, pray, and see if you can get a clear understanding of what’s going on so you can get a handle on the situation.
  2. Devise a temporary plan. Knowing that things are not going according to plan doesn’t mean you have to jump ship completely. See if you can come up with an alternate plan to carry you through the next few hours, days, or weeks until you can get back to your original agenda.
  3. Stand together, not divided. Don’t let the unexpected cause division – either mentally, relationally, physically, or spiritually. Now more than ever you and your friends/family/significant other need to band together. Find ways to make that happen—even if it might be costly—because you’ll need all the support you can get during those turbulent times.
  4. Don’t make assumptions and give up. It’s easy to get caught up in the moment, assume the worst, and be tempted to quit. Don’t! Keep the faith and keep fighting until you’re absolutely certain there are no other options left.
  5. See the unexpected as a blessing rather than a curse. While we may not enjoy the interruption of an unexpected circumstance, it might just be part of God’s divine plans. If it is, then you can expect a blessing to come from it, regardless of how dim the situation may look at the moment.

See how well Nicki follows her own advice and handles all the unexpected twists and turns she faces in Perfectly Matched, book three in the Hopeful Heart Series, releasing April 4, 2023.


The cover of the book grabbed my attention and I knew this was going to be an emotional read. I liked learning more about China and how difficult it can be to adopt a child from there. I have read about how there were at one time  laws about having a certain amount of children and how heartbreaking it is for the parents when one is taken away. This story takes us on a journey rich in emotions and God moments. 

I loved both of the main characters and thought that their sacrifice to marry in order to adopt a child was good. We follow them as they travel to China to unravel  the challenges they face as it seems they continue to get bad news. What is encouraging throughout the book is how faithful they were to God. 

For both Nicki and Ben they face hard decisions as a life threatening illness finds them praying for God to save this precious young girl. I liked how the author shows that some children are taken from their families and then placed in orphanages. This part of the story was hard to read and appreciate how the  author handled this in a good way. 

The story is filled with stumbling blocks as Nicki and Ben try to do what is best for the child. There are a few surprises along the way and I loved how the illustration was presented of how much a mother’s love is. Without giving anything away, this was a good example of sacrifice for someone who loves unconditionally. It does have a happy ending and reminds us that we should trust God in all situations. Sometimes we must give up someone we love up in order for them to have a better life. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
