To any authors/publishers/ tour companies that are looking for the reviews that I signed up for please know this is very hard to do. I will be stopping reviews temporarily. My husband passed away February 1st and my new normal is a bit scary right now and I am unable to concentrate on a book to do justice to the book and authors. I will still do spotlight posts if you wish it is just the reviews at this time. I apologize for this, but it isn't fair to you if I signed up to do a review and haven't been able to because I can't concentrate on any books. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. I appreciate all of you. Kathleen Kelly April 2nd 2024

THE MATCHMAKING GAME: A brand new historical romance novella from bestselling author Donna Hatch.

Rowena’s childhood friend, Evan, has returned home from war a handsome, but mysterious stranger. In an effort to bring happiness to her father, not to mention uncover the Evan she remembers from their youth, Rowena seeks to unite their parents. Who better to match a lonely widow and widower together than their adoring children? Her matchmaking game could help their parents find happiness and draw out her childhood friend buried beneath Evan’s new reserve … or it could break more than one heart.

Chapter One, Part 6

She heaved a sigh. “Very well, then. What else can we do?”
“Stay out of their business?”
She smacked his arm with her fan. “Don’t be a wet blanket. This is just what they both need. Think of how devious and clever we’ll have to be to make them each realize that the other is interested.”
He took her by the shoulders and turned her toward him. “What if they aren’t? What if my mother believes your papa is in love with her, so she reciprocates out of kindness or curiosity? He might feel obligated, as a gentleman, to propose despite his true feelings.”
It was the longest sentence he’d uttered since he’d been home. This part of the venture was already succeeding. She wanted to touch his cheek as she often had when they were children, but that seemed inappropriate now that he was so tall and dignified.
She huffed. “He does have feelings for her. Look at the way they always sit near each other and how they seem brighter in each other’s company. He always dances with her first, and usually the supper dance as well.”
Evan glanced back and considered.
Rowena continued, “Papa is reluctant to explore his feelings for her, and perhaps hesitant to press your mother in case she isn’t ready to consider a new relationship. Some mourn their whole lives; he may fear insufficient time has passed for her to move on.”
A shadowy pain crossed Evan’s face as he regarded the couple in question, standing alone now and conversing like the dearest of friends. They both laughed, and his mother waggled her closed fan at him as if to punctuate a point.
“They do seem comfortable,” he admitted.
