Review: A Match Made in Texas

A Match Made in Texas is a collection of four novellas by the authors Karen Witemeyer,  Regina Jennings, Carol Cox, and Mary Connealy all set around Dry Gulch, Texas. I really liked these stories! I was interested in them right from the start. The length was perfect! I hate reading a set of novellas when they each feel more like a book. These books revolve around a mystery benefactor who helps women in distress find their true love. Pretty fun concept to read about. :-)

A Cowboy Unmatched by Karen WiteMeyer highlights the adventures of Neill and Clara. Clara is widowed and pregnant and in desperate need of help with her little home. Neill receives a mysterious note and money to fix up Clara's place, but when he gets there he is met with a surprised, gun-toting woman. As he works on her home he becomes drawn to Clara. Can he convince her to give love a try?

An Unforeseen Match by Regina Jennings is about Grace who is quickly going blind. The school board lets her stay in a home outside of town, but Grace is left dependent on them for everything. That is until Clayton shows up saying he applied for the job to fix her place up. Clayton helps Grace become more independent and in the process love starts to bloom. Will their insecurities keep them from each other or draw them closer together?

No Match for Love by Carol Cox showcases Lucy and Andrew. Lucy travels to west Texas to become a companion to an older woman all alone on a ranch. The aunt isn't at all how she imagined her to be, but she comes to love and admire her. Andrew, the nephew, is concerned for his aunt's mental state, but Lucy is convinced something fishy is going on. Will they figure out the mystery in time to save the ranch?

Meeting Her Match by Mary Connealy is about the matchmaker's life turned upside down. Is there anyone who can save her life like she did for her friends? Will she ever have someone to love her?

A great collection of stories for anyone, and I was really drawn to the first two. They were so good, and I loved the characters and storylines for them. The last two weren't as interesting to me, but they were still okay.

I was given this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
