Overview

Heartstrings and Diamond Rings by Jane Graves

HE'S THE MAN OF HER DREAMS . . .

In a world full of frogs, Alison Carter is determined to find her prince. Maybe her dating past is more Titanic than Love Boat, but she's seen enough happy marriages to know that true love is possible. No matter what, she won't give up on happily-ever-after. If she can't find Mr. Right, she'll simply hire someone who can.

SHE JUST DOESN'T KNOW IT YET

When Brandon Scott inherits a successful matchmaking business, he thinks his prayers have been answered. Set up a few lonely ladies, collect the fee, how hard can it be? No one needs to know he's not really a professional matchmaker-especially not his first client, the beautiful, spirited Alison. Soon he's falling for her-and her dreams of kids and carpools. But Alison is getting close to figuring out his secret, and if she learns he's deceived her too, she'll walk right out the door, taking Brandon's heart with her.

When you have been looking for love as long as Alison Carter has, you have kissed an excessive amount of frogs, and you start to wonder if there is just something wrong with you. Alison has been successful in every aspect of her life but one - relationships. She wants so much to build a life surrounded by children, married to a man who will share her dreams and light up the night with passion. Brandon Scott wants none of the above; he is looking to make his next fortune not make a great match. But for Brandon the housing market has crashed and it took Brandon's home-flipping career with it. There is an opportunity for him to recoup his losses with the matchmaking business his grandmother left him in her will. Brandon has to stay in the house to keep it and run her matchmaking business instead of selling it all for a profit. Brandon figures he can live in the house and make money off the business so a matchmaker Brandon becomes. He figures it cannot be that difficult he knows about men obviously and he has dated enough women this should be a walk in the park. As fate would have it this is how Alison the queen of bad dates is coerced into meeting Brandon the man looking to get some quick cash and put Plano, TX in his taillights. Alison has all the makings of a great date but Brandon has found that the men she is matched up with all have a secret they cannot wait to share with her which has nothing to do with long-term relationships or marriage and everything to do with gender confusion and emotional baggage, this woman is really a dating nightmare. While Alison cannot get her dating life to work out she is doing a great job of helping Brandon perfect his business. She knows how to market him like the pro that she is and the more she does her magic the more work comes Brandon's way. This is not the plan Brandon had in mind but the more time he spends with Alison the more he realizes the best-laid plans are the ones that need the most adjustments made to them. Brandon wants to stop thinking about her and work on her match but he just cannot stop thinking that maybe he is the perfect match for Alison. How is he going to leave her behind and walk away with more questions and less answers on what he should really be doing with his life? Jane Graves writes fun books, with great characters who embrace their imperfections and make the most of the curve balls life throws at them. Alison and Brandon have come from different places in their lives but Ms. Graves writes this story so that the two people blend so well together that once she is done you have so completely fallen in love with them you cannot wait for their new life to begin. Jane's other gift is her secondary characters add so much to the story with their sassy personalities you are ready for them to have their own story told.

First Jane Graves book I read, but it won't be my last. The author had me laughing. Even better, she had me believing the romance between the two main characters. It didn't feel forced, I got why they fell for one another. Can't wait to read more of Ms. Graves offerings.

Read an except from this book in the back of Black Ties and Lullabies and realized it was Allison's story. We first met Allison in Wedding Veils and Tall Tales - Heather 's friend. So I read this too. Good story.

Love the concept of a male matchmaker! Such an entertaining book - highly recommend! Jane Graves is becoming a favorite author of mine!

Allison is desperate for love. Desperate enough to try an unconventional male matchmaker. Brandon is desperate for money. Desperate enough to make a go of it as a matchmaker, a business he inherited. Turns out, Brandon has a head for matchmaking and manages to have some successes. But never with Allison. He sets her up on terrible date after terrible date. The inevitable happens and they surrender to their mutual attraction. But is it enough?

Good and sweet book.. Wished it was a tad longer or had an epilogue. Funny and sweet. Loved her Dad. The characters were relatable. My first time reading Jane Graves. If you are looking for heavy sex scenes this book is not for you. Good length of book.

Heartstrings and Diamond Rings by Jane Graves is another charming and moving story that will tug at your heart. Alison Carter is tired of the jerks and Mr. Wrongs she has been dating. Her solution is a having a matchmaker do the ground work for her. Alison hires Matchmaking By Rochelle but instead she finds the late owners grandson Brandon Scott. Seems Brandon has taken over his late grandmothers business and assure Alison he can find the right man for her. Brandon Scott takes over his late grandmothers matchmaking business in order to get much needed cash to broker a high end real estate deal. He figures that a few successful matches and he will be able to get back to the life he loves. His first client throws him for a loop, she is sexy, funny and not at all a part of his plans. Alison intrigues him and makes him feel alive. Seems no matter how hard Brandon tries he just can¿t seem to make the perfect match for Alison. Each date is worse then the last one until Brandon saves the best for last, himself. As Brandon and Alison get closer will she still trust him once she finds out the truth about his being a matchmaker? Heartstrings and Diamond Rings is a delightful romantic romp. Its funny, witty and sexy. The bad dates will have you laughing so hard. You can imagine all the bad dates you ever had rolled into Alison dates. The chemistry between Brandon and Alison sizzles on every page. Jane Graves books always deliver a wickedly funny and sexy good time.
