Overview

Tending wounds over a broken engagement, twenty-seven-year-old Cali Weston, has no inclinations of becoming romantically involved again. She submerges herself into Weston Art Gallery, intent on making it the best in Atlanta.
When Cali's summoned to Crossroads, Tennessee, she breezes into the town she hasn't been back to in fifteen years, to settle her estranged father's affairs. Things begin to happen. She's rescued from an accident by an old school-girl infatuation, Trace Robbins. The home she's just inherited from her father, is broken into three times. Someone is after her. For her safety, she's thrown together with Trace and his seven-year-old son, Dylan. She is not happy.
It's been a year since the death of Trace's wife, Jena. Trace faces raising his son, Dylan, alone. He blames himself for both the accident and Jena's death. Now her memory haunts him. Neither love nor marriage is an option.
As attraction grows between Cali and Trace, Cali fails to keep her heart intact concerning both Trace and Dylan. Sparks fly when Cali realizes Trace's interests are centered not on her, but on two-hundred acres of prime farm land, she'd acquired from her father.
Cali struggles with meeting obligations of the art studio, and coming to grips with why her father hadn't contacted her in fifteen years. Trouble brews when Trace can't let go of his deceased wife's memory and Cali won't play second fiddle to a ghost. Cali can't forgive her father and Trace can't forgive himself. Each reject forgiveness in their lives for different reasons. Can they put aside their stubbornness and commit to each other?

I found A Perfect Match to be both a charming reunion love story and a disturbing suspense. Both Trace and Cali are damaged. They are haunted by the past. Love has let each of them down in a different way. Add to this that Cali's estranged father hadn't been in touch for years and she still feels that rejection. The key to opening Cali's heart is Trace's young son, Dylan. He is so needy after his mother's death and Cali can't turn her back on him even though she is reluctant to trust Trace again. The romance will warm your heart and the suspense will keep you turning pages. I highly recommend this wonderful novel.

I couldn't even finish this book it was so awful. The writing was terrible, not to mention the plot and character development were severly lacking. The characters had zero depth and the author just kept writing the same generalizations over and over...never really giving anything of substance. I wasn't expecting much...just a light, fun summer read, but this is not even close to that. I'm upset I even paid a few dollars for this book.
