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?

Molly’s Review:
A wonderful read! I’m a fan of these Christian authors and love everything that they do individually. So, when I saw this collaboration with them all together, I jumped at the chance to review this. I was not disappointed!

These four lovely authors have taken the heart of Texas circa 1800s and brought it to the reader full swing. I felt like I was taken to the center of the story and made a part of romance, fun, and matchmaking beyond compare! I could feel the dust in my face, I could hear the stagecoaches rolling in, and see the beautiful dresses worn in that time. That’s a plus for me when I’m completely transformed into someone from historical times!

My favorite story in the collection was Karen Witemeyer’s A Cowboy Unmatched. I loved watching Neill and Clara together. Neill’s character was sweet and loving, and Clara was cautious and captivating. The two of them together made a fun loving pair and I had so much fun following along with their story!

This collection is definitely fun and worthy of high 5 star praises. Each author has a talent beyond words and lend the perfect blend of sweetness to the novella! Grab this up if you’re looking for a charming, historical romance novella about match making antics, sweet friends and a bit of laughter!
