Editorial Reviews

Fresh Fiction - Vicki Ferrell

Kaye Dacus pens another wonderful story in her Matchmaker series with Turnabout's Fair Play. Her characters are endearing and their escapades will have you continuing to turn the pages to see where they lead. This is a delightful story about friendships: those from the past, the present and future hope for those friendships to continue. It's also a story about changes in our lives and opening our hearts to God's plan for us. I hope you enjoy this inspirational romance as much as I did.
USA Today's Happily Ever After - Serena Chase

Kaye Dacus has written a humorous tale of 2-for-1 matchmaking gone right. Turnabout's Fair Play is a sweet, fun, dual romance -- with just the right touch of "dork" to make you smile long after you've turned the final page.

    I love Flannery and Jamie! Plus I love seeing Caylor and Dylan

    I love Flannery and Jamie!

    Plus I love seeing Caylor and Dylan and Zarah and Bobby from the first two books and seeing how their stories have played out.

    Now… I’m not a total geek. I don’t role play or paint ball or laser tag or any of that stuff. But I’m just geek enough to laugh hysterically when my sister asks her iPhone/Siri what the meaning of life is and Siri says “42″.

    So when the world of fan fiction and laser tag and the King Arthur fandom comes into play, I was highly amused. Much more so than most people probably would be. While it made me squeal a bit, it wasn’t quite so over the top that those who aren’t as geeky as I am would be totally off-put by it.

    So there’s Flannery and Jamie who are fighting their attraction for each other. Secrets which have to be dealt with, because without them the plot would be boring.

    Plus there’s Jamie’s grandmother, Cookie, and Flannery’s grandfather, Big Daddy, who have serious crushes on each other.

    The characters are wonderful. The writing is wonderful.

    The saddest part about the book is page 315.

    When it ends.

    /sigh/

    I’ve not read Kaye’s historicals [though I have book 1 in her Ransome series]. She’s working on a series set in the 1850s now [The Great Exhibition Series – set at Prince Albert's Great Exhibition in 1851]. I find myself wishing she was writing another contemporary series because I know I love those – both The Matchmakers and Brides of Bonneterre. Will I read the others? Of course. Because I do love Kaye and I do enjoy historicals as well as contemporary books.

    Kaye’s characters are loveably quirky, real, flawed, and wonderful.

    And for that I’ll follow her to any time period.

    Plus Kaye’s pretty cool too.

    Turnabout’s Fair Play is book 3 in the series. While someone who has read the first two will likely enjoy the 3rd more, they’re not strictly necessary to read first.

    Overall rating: 9.5 out of 10 stars

    Never Too Late for Love

    Turnabouts Fairy Play by Kaye Dacus Book 3 of the Matchmakers Series

    While Maureen O'Connor and Kirby McNeill try and get their grandchildren together romantically, things get turned around and they find themselves drawn together. It is a separate and unique story to see this eighty-six year old man and eighty-four year old woman choose to make the most of each day the Lord has given them.

    Flannery McNeill on the other hand finds Jamie O'Connor to be arrogant and too handsome. From negative experiences in her past with handsome men, she has decided she prefers a dork. And when the tables turn and she finds out that Jamie has a dork side, well there is nothing holding her back.

    Jamie has to face a new future and decide if he will let his dads last words continue to guide his life or if he can make his own choices. Flannery has to choose if she must hide what she enjoys in life because of humiliation in high school or if she can be herself. A great finale to a good series. And Kaye brings back all the previous characters from the first two books along with adding a few more.

    **Book received through NetGalley for Review.
