Come visit Charleston in this delightful festive romance! Macy Frost is a professional matchmaker, one who prides herself on successfully helping many people find their soulmate. However, she’s still searching for her own! That’s until Deacon Banks visits her matchmaking agency, wanting to appease his Aunt by pretending to look for his true love, even though he has no ambition whatsoever to actually do so! The two connect straight away, but that’s just plain unethical for Macy so she endeavours to resist her attraction to Deacon and to set him up on a series of dates to tempt him. . . . . He’s only in town for a month, whatever could go right – or wrong – in that time? Well, you’ll just have to read this book to discover for yourself!

This is a story packed with humour, especially as Deacon’s Aunt is Macy’s new next door neighbour and a well known, popular but somewhat astringent and vociferous celebrity. Her endeavours to fit into the Southern community and interactions with notable residents result in some laugh out loud scenarios and great dialogue. It is about expectations, beliefs and connections all of which may need revising in the light of experience. As usual, what you anticipate doesn’t always quite go as you hoped or planned – and that is often a good thing in the end. This is a lovely story to escape into and includes more than one romantic development, just right to put you in a festive mood, whatever the season!

I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis

The best gift of all is the one you share with someone else. . .

From the moment he strode through the iron gate and into the offices of Two Love Lane on a crisp December day, it was obvious that Deacon Banks was something different. He wasn’t a Charleston native, not with that adorable Yankee accent. And unlike the usual client at the elegant matchmaking agency, he had no interest in finding a woman to marry—just a few no-strings dates while he was in town.

Macy Frost takes her professional services very seriously—how could she not, when she’s rumored to be a direct descendant of Cupid? Tech entrepreneur Deacon says he’s just trying to make his social-climbing aunt happy by being seen out and about with a few prominent beauties, but Macy insists she can make her client fall in love…for real. And Deacon can’t help but think she might be right. As charming as the palmetto trees and magnificent harbor may be, it’s the beautiful, breath-of-fresh-air Macy who’s become Deacon’s favorite part of the scenery. But can the hopelessly romantic Southern belle stop trying to fix him up and just let Cupid do his work on her own heart?
