Broken Things to Mend (Power of the Matchmaker) by Karey WhiteABOUT THE BOOK:
***This book is part of a multi-author project that features one recurring character--the match maker--but it is a STAND-ALONE novel.***
Celia is in desperate need of a change--a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon's Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She's wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters?
What Celia doesn't plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia's past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.
I loved this story! I thought it was a great start to the Power of the Matchmaker series. I was a little surprised that the matchmaker is only in the beginning but I guess she wasn't really needed to make the story great. Silas and Celia both have had hard lives and I think my favorite line from the book will help you see the attitude they both have about it! "It isn’t a contest to see whose life is harder. Everyone has hard things. I don’t want you to feel sorry for me.” I love that they both have kind of an instant understanding of each other and are slowly able to build a friendship! All in all great book! Can't wait for the next one in this series!
