A Match Made at Christmas
Thank you, Courtney Walsh, for sending me a copy of your holiday novella, A Match Made at Christmas!
“Hayes McGuire never believed the stories about a famous Nantucket matchmaker until she ropes him into taking over her duties while she’s off the island for Christmas.
So he enlists the help of the one person he can trust with this crazy scheme—his best friend, Prudence. Armed with a series of rules, a book of success stories and the promise of Christmas magic, the pair of old friends set out to make a Christmas match.
Little do they know that magic doesn’t discriminate, and they soon find their years of friendship deepening into something more. Will Pru and Hayes ignore the electricity in the air between them or will there be more than one match made at Christmas?”
I started reading this book last night at 930 and, at 60 pages, I had to force myself to put it down and go to bed. I woke up at 6 AM and immediately picked the book up and began reading. I wanted to be transported back into this Nantucket Love Story to see how Hayes and Pru’s relationship unfolded – it was, honestly, the perfect way to begin my Friday.
I loved reading Walsh’s Feels Like Home and If For Any Reason earlier this year but A Match Made at Christmas has just become a favorite of mine.
It is the quintessential holiday romance but without a lot of unnecessary drama. I found myself laughing at the banter between Hayes and Pru – their relationship felt so pure to me; there’s no other way to describe it. A lot of times, I will read a holiday book and think that the characters didn’t seem real but, with this story, every character felt real to me.
Also, A Match Made at Christmas is only 160 pages but Walsh didn’t leave me feeling as if I needed more. She managed to pack all of the important feelings into this novella that left me giddy. And, I will admit, I got a little teary-eyed at one point.
The only thing that I have to say about this book is that I hope there will be another one following Hayes and Pru because I want to see their relationship continue and visit them, again, on Nantucket.
A Match Made at Christmas is available today! It’s available to download to your Kindle so you could get to it this holiday season. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
