I received this book from Bethany House to do a review. When I got this book it was intrigued because I like to read any books that are set in the 1800’s as this one was set in 1893. It is 4 books in 1 which is great and I did read it in one sitting. I was done in 4 hours as I sat there and read it from cover to cover.  God did amazing work throughout this book and you can truly see it.

From the Back Cover

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?

My Thoughts

I love this one as it was Clara was protecting her unborn child from her greedy father in law. Neill become her protector and it was so moving to see at what lengths he would go.  What a perfect match this one is along with all the others.

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.

My Thoughts
Grace is blind so this story is so moving and touching. I really felt for her as she was tossed aside from being a teacher. This one out of the four was my favorite. Clayton was so tender to her even after finding out who hurt.
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?
My Thoughts
This one was really suspense driven since someone was trying to make the Aunt crazy. All for the the Aunt’s land which in that time was worth a lot. Love how the aunt says that Andrew & Lucy are like the cows that her and husband brought to the ranch when the fist brought it.
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 Thoughts
Finally it is revealed who is the one setting up everyone. She finally gets her man even though he has been there by her side all this time. Shotgun wedding and it was amazing to read how so many people love and adore her.
