About the book: 

There's a secret matchmaker at work in frontier Texas!
In the small town of Dry Gulch, Texas, a good-hearted busybody just can't keep herself from surreptitiously trying to match up women in dire straits with men of good character she hopes can help them. How is she to know she's also giving each couple a little nudge toward love?
A Cowboy Unmatched
Neill isn't sure who hired him to repair Clara's roof--he only knows Clara desperately needs his help. Can he convince this stubborn widow to let down her guard and take another chance on love?

An Unforeseen Match
Hoping to earn an honest wage on his way to the land rush, Clayton ends up on Grace's doorstep, lured by a classified ad. He may have signed on for more than he expected though--and he may have found the one woman who can keep him from moving on.

No Match for Love
Andrew can't fathom how refined Lucy ended up as the caretaker to his dotty aunt, and somehow her arrival has prompted even more bizarre occurrences around the ranch. When they join forces to unearth the truth, will the attraction between Andrew and Lucy develop into more?

Meeting Her Match
When the tables are turned and a tenderhearted meddler becomes the beneficiary of a matchmaking scheme, her world is turned upside down. As her entire life changes, will she finally be able to tell the banker's son how much she cares for him?

My review:

I did not want to put this book down!  These are four wonderfully amusing novellas!  I thoroughly enjoyed each story and loved the characters in every one.  I loved that someone was secretly matchmaking and that the tables got turned on her.  All of the stories are light-hearted romance, but there are still Christian themes, such as the need to forgive.  I loved that Karen's story tells the tale of another Archer brother.  The romance in each was very sweet and I loved that some of the characters aren't the perfect, beautiful people found in so many love stories.   I couldn't help reading this with a smile on my face!  These are some of the best-known women in historical romance and this collection did not disappoint!  Run out and buy it today!

I received this book  free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
