Join Annie Peterson as she follows the clues to discover who set fire to the local dating service, the Perfect Match. Is the arsonist the financially strapped widow who owns the matchmaking business, a mismatched newspaper editor, an unsatisfied and unmarried forty-something customer, or the new female investigator who, except for her suspicious past, seems the ideal mate for Annie’s son Devin? The race is on—to see whether or not Annie and her cohorts can solve the crime before another building is burned to the ground and before Devin becomes enamored of the woman who may be Ms. Wrong.

It's an easy read with a good message about being a Good Samaritan but it's not too heavy. The difficulties of being there for difficult people is realistic, but the story is entertaining too. I would read another book by this author.

We've read a few of her books and have enjoyed her writing. This was no exception! Annie is an adorable heroine and Miss Opal is a hoot!
We also realized this is not the first in the series, but were pleased that you can easily read this without the others! A definite recommend!

Naturally, she can't stay out of it, so she begins a hunt to find the arsonist. Is Opal, the elderly widow that runs the service the culprit? Is it the disgruntled newspaper editor that married his "unfortunate match"? Is it the investigator that her son is seemingly enamored of? Or perhaps a client that has never found her perfect match? Will Annie and her friends find the arsonist before another fire breaks out and her son falls in love with the wrong woman?
This was a humorous mystery with all the right elements in it to make it fun and interesting. Annie kept me laughing with all her shenanigans, as well as her best friend, Shelia, who endeavored to be a sleuth like Annie. The best element of the story is reading about Annie's misadventures when she opens up her home to a menagerie of animals and the resulting disasters that happen as a result. A fun mystery that actually kept me guessing.
