This is a sweet tale of when an old women wanting to get her way ends up collecting a lot of cats in order to achieve her goal. A women name the "cat women" and who is avoided by many because she is considered eccentric and she is just just trying to be able to keep the cats that are left at her house. Now the old women family member is sent to the "cat women" so that he can pick out some new cats. Between the family member, the "cat women", the older women, and all of those cats there are bound to be some mystery and an amazing story in which some cats continue to help two people get together.

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 Language: Rated G Recommended to fans of regency romance, wholesome romance, novellas, and animal-lovers. ~Kristin
