A MATCH MADE IN TEXAS

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:

Four wonderful stories told in four distinct voices. Kudos to Bethany House for pooling together such a rich resource of talent! I am a fan of each of these authors so I knew I was in for a powerhouse read. Loved the common thread that sifted through all four stories...just a barely there wisp in A Cowboy Unmatched that grew more substantial and increased my anticipation by the time I reached the last story, Meeting Her Match.  One of the best novella collections I have read.
