Broken Things to Mend (Power of the Matchmaker)

Buy from Amazon: Broken Things to Mend

Broken Things to Mend is part of a series, but is a Stand-Alone novel.

Celia has had a very hard life. Her mother died of an overdose; she’s been through the foster care, and is now a victim of rape. Trying to hold onto her good memories, Celia opens a map and narrows down the possibilities of finding a new place to settle down, to get away from it all and start fresh. Oregon is calling her name, with her suitcase and a backpack with her meager belongings she gets on the bus and drives west. Not knowing that a little feisty matchmaker has a man waiting for her in Sisters, Oregon.

Pearl, the matchmaker, is determined not to give up. She doesn’t care how many times she makes Silas drive her out of his way. She knows Celia is coming on the bus and she knows Silas and Celia are meant for each other. They just need to be given a push in the right direction, but first they need to meet first. Silas is quiet and rarely talks, embarrassed with his stuttering and Celia has a past to hide, and is not ready to trust the people of Sisters. But with time, patience, and understanding the most precious of things that are broken can be mended.

I enjoyed this book immensely, it was clean and showed how quick people are to judge but are willing to learn how to put aside their prejudices to accept those around them. Celia is a very strong individual that has made a good life for herself, even with the horrible hand she’s been dealt in life. Silas learns to love Celia, no matter what her past was. The story was very easy to read and just flowed smoothly. I was able to read it in one afternoon, not wanting to put it down.

Danny’s Girl (Rainbow Rock Romances Book 8)

Buy from Amazon: Danny’s Girl

When Officer Danny Sherwood got the call that there was an individual traveling at dangerous high speeds, he didn’t realize that when he pulled the suspect over that he would be meeting a woman that would change his life. Manon DuPre is taking no chances and driving as fast as she can to get away from the monster that controls her life and leaves bruises and broken bones in his fury. Afraid for her life, she begs the officer to hide her; afraid her ex-boyfriend would show up any minute and follow through with his threats of killing her. Frightened with nowhere else to turn, Manon couldn’t have chosen a better place to stumble on. With a town full of loving friends willing to protect the new stranger that has come into their lives, and they themselves are no stranger to hiding out and changing their identities to start a new life. Manon takes a new job at a café, changes her name to Mandy Black and finds herself drawn to the officer who has sworn to protect. Full of insecurities and mistrusting it’ll take a village and a few well-placed friends to help Manon discover who she really is and what she has to offer.

This is the second book that I have read in the Rainbow Rock Romances series and I was familiar with some of the back stories. You are able to read these books on their own, but it is fun to read the different stories of each of the characters. Susan Aylworth writes a good clean romance and does a great job and developing the characters and bringing them through tough circumstances and helps them to trust and love again.

That Girl, Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Story

That Girl Darcy

If you know me, you know that I’m a sucker for a good Pride and Prejudice story. Anything with a Mr. Darcy involved makes me swoon. I’ve read many stories centered on the brooding man, so when I had the opportunity to read a book that made a female version of Mr. Darcy I knew I had to read it.

Elliott Bennett, a high school student ready to take on his senior year is gliding through life. He’s a normal teenage boy who enjoys reading, skateboarding, working, and attending parties with his friends. During lunch, this geeky boy discusses ways to avoid zombies, which superhero is his favorite, and he constantly tries to steer clear of any adults asking him what he plans to do when he graduates.

The last thing on Elliot’s list is finding a girl and falling in love. However, a new family has moved into the huge manor across the field from him and the two beautiful girls they bring with them. One who happens to wear an eternal scowl, and could trip the angels by the way her nose is constantly turned up at those that are beneath her. If Darcy is such a stuck up snot, why can’t Elliot get her out of his mind? Why is he so taken by her?

Following all the characters you love and hate in the classic tale complete with a whirlwind romance of Jake and Bridget that ends in heartache because of preconceived prejudices, That Girl, Darcy is well crafted and entertaining. I enjoyed James Ramos’ writing and felt that it read smoothly and felt that the characters and the plot were strong and kept my attention and I couldn’t put it down once I started.
