From award-winning author Debra Clopton comes the Texas Matchmakers series—about three older women who set off a nationally advertised "Wives Wanted Campaign" to bring women to their small town of Mule Hollow to marry the lonesome cowboys. A far fetched idea that's working—look out fellas, the women are coming one car at a time!
Prankster Sheri Marsh came to Mule Hollow to go into business with her best friend Lacy Brown…she did not come to fall in love with one of the towns cowboys. Her past has taught her happily-ever-after doesn’t exist for her.
But now, the “matchmaking posse” as she dubbed the town matchmakers have set their sights on her despite being told she’s not interested. And just to teach them a lesson she hatches her own plan-all she needs is a cowboy just as eager to keep them off his back as she is to get them off of hers.
Horse trainer Pace Gentry is just the man she needs for her plan to work…now she just needs to convince the quiet cowboy that pretending to be her boyfriend and teaching the ladies a lesson is the right thing to do.
Escapades in Mule Hollow just took on a whole new level of the unexpected

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
In book 5, attention is turned to Sheri Marsh who came to town with Lacy. Sheri is trying everything in her power to get the "matchmaking posse" to leave her alone. She's convinced that because of her parents, and her love for all things new and exciting, that she's a poor candidate for marriage. Therefore, she's decided to avoid it completely. However, when the posse targets her specifically, she thinks that by pretending to have a boyfriend and then breaking things off, she'll teach them a lesson to quit messing with other people's lives. She just never counted on Pace Gentry actually turning out to the man of her dreams. But, shouldn't dreams stay as dreams? Pace Gentry is convinced that he's following God's will by leaving his solitary life in Idaho and coming to Texas to open a horse training business. But, when his neighbor starts pestering him to be her boyfriend, he's not so sure he wants to play along because he thinks it's dishonest. What follows is both fun and sobering. On the surface is a fun, lighthearted tale, but as I started to dig into the lives of the characters, I found 2 people who were desperately trying to find and follow God's will, but struggling. Sheri thinks God is ignoring her and is convinced that she should not marry. Pace struggles with other issues such as communication and jumping to conclusions. As the story unfolds, their backstory is revealed and I'm sure there are many readers who can relate and learn from how Sheri and Pace grew in their faith. I also loved the secondary story of Sam and Adela. I can't wait to find out what's next for the residents of Mule Hollow. Romance - PG - kissing Language - clean My rating - 5 stars.
This was a sweet, well-written, fun book. Sheri came to Mule Hollow to start a business with her friend. Three of the women in town have started a nationally advertised "Wives Wanted Campaign" to help find matches for the lonely cowboys in Mule Hollow. Sheri has no intention of being matched with a cowboy, though, since her past has told her not to expect "happily ever after." When the matchmakers set their sights on her she decides to convince one of the cowboys to help her teach them a lesson not to match someone who isn't interested. Horse trainer Pace seems like just the cowboy to help her out. It was great to see the relationship between Sheri and Pace progress. I enjoyed this book, which can be read as a standalone book, though it is #5 in the Texas Matchmakers series. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series as well as other books by this author.
