    LOVE IS COME (POWER OF A MATCHMAKER)

    This book did not disappoint. This is one of the first books I read in kindle format. I still lean toward the old-fashioned holding the paper and turn the pages by hand method of reading but------------------- I found this book captivating. Nelle was a young woman learning her strength and she almost had to learn it overnight when her parents passed. She had to face life without money until her 21st birthday. Nelle was honest, loyal and trustworthy to a fault. I could go on and on but I think you need to not pass up the experience of reading this novella. The book is set in the early 20th Century --The setting starts in the big city and she moves to the country to live with her aunt who charges her for living with her ----then she meets the man of her dreams--who is betrothed to her cousin. Will Nelle ask him to leave her cousin? Does her cousin really love the man of Nelle's dreams? Who is Pearl? Will the book have a happy ending? READ IT and answer these questions. It is a great read. Don't pass the opportunity by...... Heather B. Moore never disappoints in her writing. Her care on how the words are created to tell the story are unparalleled. Take the plunge and read this book. You will not put it down and you most certainly will not regret reading it!

    Fun, clean romance

    Following the death of her parents, Nelle Thompson goes to stay with her aunt and her cousin. Not truly welcomed in her aunt's home and deeply grieving the death of her parents, Nelle finds some solace from two sources: Miss Pearl, the owner of the local apothecary, and Mathew Janson--the handsome neighbor who is nearly engaged to her cousin Alice. Fighting her feelings for Mathew--and his feelings for her--Nelle doesn't know if she can trust her heart or her mind. Although is is part of the Power of the Matchmaker series, it's a complete standalone; I haven't read any of the other books in the series but could completely follow the plot here. Heather B. Moore has written a sweet love story. It was interesting to see how the matchmaking didn't go smoothly: while Pearl helped with Nelle's peace of mind in dealing with her parents' deaths, her presence (or lack thereof) actually caused a rift between Nelle and Mathew, but that twist actually added an element to the book that many matchmaking books lack. Things wrapped up neatly--maybe a little too neatly for some characters, but hey, everyone loves a happily ever after, right? Solid writing, great characters, and a highly enjoyable story. I received a copy of the ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    A Solid Addition to the Matchmaker Series

    Note: I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review. Heather Moore has delivered a solid addition to the Matchmaker series of books. It covers a lot of ground and issues, yet everything is wrapped up in the end about as well as I've ever read before. Even the secondary characters are taken care of. Nelle Thompson is a single woman approaching the age of 21. She's content living with her parents and the love they provide. Marriage would be nice, but she doesn't feel compelled to force the issue. However, life does not always proceed as planned. One night she awakens to the realization that something is terribly wrong. Her worst nightmare is confirmed when she is visited by the Constable. Reeling from the trauma she has endured and mired in grief, she leaves the city and travels to stay with her aunt until her birthday when she will be eligible to receive her trust money. Matthew Janson just wants to make his mother happy and live up to the dreams of his father. Growing up, he'd always believed that he would marry their neighbor's daughter, Alice. He figured that even if they didn't love each other, they would at least be friends. However, when he encounters Alice's cousin, Nelle, he feels a totally new emotion. Yet, he's essentially committed to Alice. What is he supposed to do now? Pearl makes another appearance in this book. And, the story delves a bit into her background which is nice if you have not read the prequel book to the series. This book deals with a lot of heavy, somber topics, yet I never felt weighted down by them, which is unusual. The pace is steady and the timeframe believable. Themes covered - death / grief / depression, propriety / morality, faithfulness, and prejudices / hypocrisy Sub themes - lies / hiding the truth / keeping secrets; associating with the wrong people, and sanity / psychology Nelle goes through a lot of emotional upheaval, but I respect her strength of character to not compromise herself. She always tries to do what is right for others, sometimes at her own expense. Fortunately, everything is made right in the end. Romance - PG - some kisses. There's also a reference to one of the character's moral failure. Language - clean My rating - 5 stars

    I plan to keep this one!

    Christina Rossetti's A Birthday poem provides the basis of this tender novel about an early 20th century New England heiress who must come to terms with very changed circumstances and new ideas about love. Author, Heather Moore, did a fabulous job of writing an dramatic romance, including interesting tidbits of what life might have been like for some in the upper class at the turn of the century. I found tears forming in my eyes as I found myself understanding the difficult circumstances of the characters and cheering them on as they made the best of their individual situations.
