The Matchmaker knows you can't find the perfect fit if you don't try on the right size...

Nothing extraordinary ever happens in Fiddlehead Bay, Maine until an enigmatic woman moves into the small seaside town and opens her shop of eclectic odds and ends. There are rumors among the locals the shopkeeper is a modern day witch and matchmaker, and Franci Grassette is intrigued by the concept. Her nonexistent love life could use some matchmaking. Heck, it could use a miracle.

Dylan O'Brien came to Fiddlehead Bay to make a fresh start with his daughter and to forget the deceits of his wife and his troubled past. Not to get involved with a woman. But he soon finds himself repeatedly running into Franci, first as his daughter's daycare teacher, then as his landlord. And it's getting harder and harder to ignore his attraction to the sweet, thoughtful and sexy woman.

Franci isn't sure if the shopkeeper is making her meetings with Dylan happen, or if it's just coincidence. But with each unexpected encounter, it becomes clear they cannot deny their attraction to each other. Unfortunately there's no outrunning the past and it catches up to Dylan with a bang, testing their new love, and threatening their PERFECT MATCH...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Kathy Love. It was my first book by this author, and I'll absolutely be looking for more by her. I thought that Franci Grassette and Dylan O'Brien were both wonderful characters, and I enjoyed reading about their developing relationship. Dylan's daughter, Olivia, added a great deal to the story. She was adorable! The storyline kept me interested, and I thought Perfect Match was a very sweet and tender romance.  Franci Grassette has noticed a new man in Fiddlehead Bay, and is surprised to find his daughter enrolled in her preschool. After a bit of a rocky start, Franci and Dylan begin to get to know one another, and are quickly developing serious feelings for one another. As Dylan's past intrudes, they have to decide what they really mean to one another.

Dylan is back in town and trying to run away from his past and build a new life for him and his daughter. Dylan works as a construction worker and lives with his cousin above his bar remaining focused on his goal of having a new life. But no matter how many times he redirects his wondering mind he bumps into Franci every where he goes and cant help but see how beautiful, smart and loving she is. Franci is a school teacher and she is used to living in her sisters shadow. So no one was more surprised that when her sister notices a hunky construction worker he ignores her always sought after sister and locks his gaze on Olivia starting a romance that will steal your heart with every word. This was a great book. I have always known the name Kathy Love but I must admit that I have never read a stand alone book of hers. I will remedy that mistake after this book. I went through the whole roller coaster of emotions while reading this book. I don't want to give any spoilers but I highly enjoyed the book. I smiled through the shy new love getting to know each other phases, I laughed through the single women woe is me parts, I was angry at the moments when people didn't think she was good enough and I cried at the moment of heartache. You will definitely fall in love with Franci and Dylan and Little Olivia will help to seal the deal. I was so surprised by the ending, I mean I knew something would happen but I just did not expect the who, what, where and why of it all. Reading this book made it clear why other authors choose Kathy Love to be apart of their books. She definitely adds that wow factor. So now I am on the hunt I need to know if Dylans cousins story is out because I cant wait to find out what the cousin has in store for us readers!

Kathy Love’s new book, “Perfect Match” is a wonderful read.  I had only previously read Kathy’s stories as part of anthologies.  For the life of me, I am not sure why I had not read her other books before, but I will definitely be reading her books, especially this series, going forward.  Perfect Match is the first book in her “The Matchmaker Series,” and it is fantastic.  The reader is introduced to Franci - your sweet, easygoing, girl-next-store kind of woman, the type of person/character I relate to the most.  And, then we meet Dylan, a handsome man, caring father, but someone who clearly has a past that, as a reader, I could not wait to explore.  Along the way, we also meet some hysterical, quirky, and loyal secondary characters that this reader cannot wait to learn more about in the later books in this series.   I cannot wait for book two! I received this book for free in exchange for a honest review.

Perfect Match by Kathy Love is the first book in The Matchmaker Series.  Kathy Love is one of my favorite authors and I am so excited about this new series.  Set in Fiddlehead Bay, Dylan O'brien is a single father and a construction worker.  Franci Grasette is a daycare teacher.  Things heat up for them when a new shopkeeper comes to town and she may be a witch.   Dylan and Franci are both so likable and I did root for their happy ending.  This was a very enjoyable read and I look forward to the next books in this series.

Dylan O'Brien and his daughter have moved back to town where they can be close to family after Dylan's wife and business partner destroyed his life. He's not sharing that information with anyone and he's definitely not looking for love. He however finds Olivia's pre-school teacher attractive and he loves the fact Olivia adores Franci and Franci is quite taken with Olivia also. He and Olivia are soon finding themselves living in Franci's guesthouse and settling down enjoying all of their family, friends and neighbors in their town. Franci had already noticed Dylan working at a construction yard while walking around town with her sister, but getting to know him even better after his daughter Olivia joined her class and them both moving into her guesthouse was taking their relationship somewhere new. This is the first book that I've read by Kathy Love and I'm looking forward to more. I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. All conclusion and mine and mine alone. Lori P

A fantastic new read by Kathy Love!  Perfect Match is about Franci, who owns/runs a daycare with her best friend and feels plain and invisible to men, especially when she's around her bold and beautiful step sister, Josslyn. Her life gets turned upside when the new hunk in town, Dylan, drops his adorable daughter, Olivia, off at daycare. Franci is immediately taken with both the little girl and her gorgeous father but thinks he completely out of her league. With some help from the new mysterious women who has opened up her boutique, Phaedra's Fantastical Finds, the shopkeeper/match maker/ witch/ gypsy (according to the rumors spreading around town) Franci and Dylan grow closer as they spend more time together. While Franci loves the thought of the three of them being a family, Dylan has secrets in his past that could tear them apart or make them stronger. I loved this book, I always feels a bond of sorts with underdog characters. Franci is so open and loving, which made her perfect for not only Dylan but also for Olivia.  I liked the fact that Franci bonded with Olivia first even though she thought Dylan didn't like her, it made the story feel more real. Franci has help from the new shopkeeper, Phae, who we don't know much about other than she's kind of odd and everyone in town thinks she's a witch and/or a gypsy and I think her story will be very interesting as it gets revealed. So while I loved Franci and Dylan's story, I can't wait for the next book , Mismatched, which is Franci's best friend and co-owner of the day care, Kelsey. She's been with her boyfriend who doesn't appreciate her since high school and with some help from the resident match making witch/gypsy, Kelsey will find true love with a man who will love her as fiercely as she loves him.
