    The good & the bad

    I'm kind of torn over this book. While I think it had plenty of potential, it just wasn't a winner for me. I did really like Mary Margaret. She came across as relatable and genuine and I could really feel for her. Kevin on the other hand, was a much different story and I simply can't say that I was a fan and that was a huge problem for this book because I thought Mary Margaret deserved more and better than him. In general, there is actually quite a lot going on in this book. So I was honestly surprised when things got that bogged down feeling. Not all the time but definitely in a few spots. The small town charm and holiday cheer were nice elements though but not nice enough to salvage this pair's romance for me. This is my objective, freely posted review.

    The Widows Club is always fun.

    Always a fun time when the Widows Club gets involved. Tad is also a lot of fun. Love that little ninja. This time, they are going to help Edith's granddaughter. Mary Margaret has been a widow for almost a year. Her husband left her with a ton of debt and she feels obligated to pay it all off. Two men show up to tell her that her husband lost $100,000 gambling online. How will she ever pay that much? She worked her way through college by dancing in burlesque shows. Could she do that again? Kevin is now a single father and he also is pursuing a career in politics. Mary Margaret would be the perfect wife for him. She is a kindergarten teacher after all. What if Kevin finds out about her secret life as a burlesque dancer? That would ruin his chances of getting any state office. She doesn't want to be a liability, but she is in love with him. What to do?

    Characters Needed More Chemistry

    I can't say that this was one of my favorite Melinda Curtis books but I still enjoyed visiting Sunshine Valley again! I enjoy the quirky characters and the way that the matchmaking widows are in everybody's business! They are super funny and this time Edith is part of the plot at it's her granddaughter, Mary Margaret, that's the main character. I just didn't feel that MM and the other main character, Kevin, were the best match. He's a little wishy washy in my book and wasn't the best "hero" material. I felt Mary Margaret could have done better! After all, her first husband was a total jerk. When he died, he left her with a mountain of debt (which he totally chose to do!) so even though she's a teacher, she has to find different ways to make money to try to pay it off and it's killing her! Kevin is a local politician looking for state politics and he thinks MM can help him get there. That's not very romantic! However, they just don't have chemistry in my book. But, I loved Kevin's son, Tad. He was adorable! Kevin's ex, Barb, however, was another story - a total witch!!!! An fairly good book to add to the series but I wasn't really invested in it. The characters needed more chemistry.

    A Highly Entertaining Christmas Read

    A Funny, Sweet Christmas Read This one had me snickering a lot. Mary Margaret has had her bright light snuffed out years ago, and add to it, a ton of problems she is trying to fix now. She has her Grandma Edith in her corner and makes life fun, or tries to, with the help of the widow's club, every town should have one. They get involved whether needed or not, they are there for you. Kevin, the mayor of this small town, has his own set of problems, or just say he has an X. There are serious notes thoughout, but the true spirit of Christmas shows up when you least expect it. Kevin has an amazing little boy, Tad, who also helps bring Christmas to life, with his big personality. A great read I recommend to give you the feel goods, no matter what, and with a very HEA!

    Cosy, amusing, and delightfully festive!

    A Very Merry Match is a winsome, uplifting, wintery story that takes you into the lives of two main characters, Mary Margaret Sneed, a young, kindergarten teacher with a boatload of debt and some very intriguing side gigs, and the divorced, local golden boy, Kevin Hadley who is focused on raising his five-year-old son and has his sights set on political advancement. The prose is witty and light. The characters are multilayered, endearing, and quirky. And the plot is an engaging tale of tender moments, humorous hijinks, self-discovery, friendship, family, community, happiness, love, a dab of mystery, and a little Christmas cheer! Overall, A Very Merry Match is a quaint, charming, enjoyable, holiday read that will have you dreaming of snowflakes, hot chocolate, and some very scrumptious treats!
