Wish Upon a Matchmaker (Matchmaking Mamas) by Marie Ferrarella
This was my first book by Marie Ferrarella, and I have to say I really enjoyed it.
Little Ginny Scarborough, walks into the local realtors office and asks Maizie Sommers “Are you the lady who finds mommies” And so starts the matchmaking. You see Maizie helped Greg a friend of little Ginny’s find a new Mommy. So now she is hoping to have a mommy too. She doesn’t remember her own mother who passed away when she was a baby. When Virginia “Ginny’s Aunt” finds her she sets down with Maizie and Ginny and so starts the story.
Soon we have Stone Scarborough being put in touch with Danni Everett who just so happens to need extensive renovations done to her older fixer upper. Neither is aware that there is a threesome working behind the scenes to bring them together.
Stone Scarborough has been barely holding together what is left of his life since losing his wife four years ago. He had been and aerospace engineer but the industry is no longer what it used to be so, he has fallen back on his construction background and barely making ends meet. So he is happy to go see about a possible new job that will bring in much needed income. While he is currently dating Elizabeth he has to admit there are some issues starting to show in their relationship.
Danni Everett is a celebrity chef with her own cooking show on television. Danni is as sweet and bubbly as they come, a true southern belle from the state of Georgia. She is now in a position to have work done on the fixer upper she bought. Some would take a look at her and think she doesn’t have a care in the world. But as we all know looks can and often are deceiving. She lost her father a couple of years ago and still misses him.
The two main characters were both well written. And the book had a nice flow to it. I really enjoyed Marie’s writing style and the idea behind the plot. She also writes with little or no errors to her writing, which I really enjoy. I must say I also loved little Ginny Scarborough’s character in the book also. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
4.5 /5 stars
