Delightful, charming, romantic novella
THE MATCHMAKERS was my first exposure to Ruth J. Hartman's work...and I'm impressed! The interesting book description and beautiful cover caught my attention....but the novella itself kept me riveted. The novella runs 61 pages (minus front- and end-matter), and not a page or word of it is wasted. Ms. Harman writes with an economy of words, weaving a fun, lighthearted story bringing two unlikely people together and circumstances showing them how very right a match they are.
Ms. Hartman's humor had me smiling and chuckling from the very beginning. I'm not a "cat person," but still found this read to be thoroughly enjoyable. Who would've thought a cat (or two or five) could bring two people together?
The secondary characters (and there were only 2) were terrific; Aunt Esther is hilarious! An 'old man' who loves her cat, has marriage designs on her nephew (our hero, Baldwin Rutledge), and finds immediate kinship with another 'cat lady,' (our heroine, Jessie Selkirk).
I'm definitely interested in reading more books by the author.
Sensuality Level: Rated G, wholesome
