BrendaLeeAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great novellas!February 28, 2017BrendaLeeAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Written by some great authors these short stories are great ones. Nine different stories to read! Oh what fun!
Nine ladies that think they have matchmaking skills but they can't even get themselves matched up.
In each story find out what it takes for each lady to agree to get married. They think they are unlucky in matters of the heart. But soon they find out even they can get lucky.
Great characters that sometimes will make you laugh. A couple of novellas maybe a little predictable and some with things you won't see coming till it happens, but all worth reading. Read if you enjoy historical fiction and also want to get the satisfaction of reading a book that won't take you all day to read.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a favorable review.
Trixi4 Stars Out Of 5Fun matchmaking stories!February 6, 2017TrixiQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5These are nine short historical novellas by nine various authors set in the late 1800s time period. I enjoyed the whole matchmaker theme; its similar to my two favorite ones, marriage of convenience and mail-order brides. I loved the historical details, the fun characters, the touch of humor some stories had, and the setting in each story. I had to laugh at a few of these because the whole matchmaking scheme backfired on the women! The faith-theme was refreshing and each author portrayed a different & encouraging message. I also liked the fact that I could read two or three of these in one sitting. Overall a heartwarming set of stories you can savor in small bites or even spend an afternoon reading them all!

Karen RWAGender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Delightful collection of historical romances!January 16, 2017Karen RWAGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a delightful collection of all new historical novellas set in 1878 to 1895 America! Most of the stories are tender and sweet, involving young women whose sincere attempts to make good matches for others comes back on them, ending with a twist. One story even features a traveling salesman--a tinsmith--whose side business includes uniting people in matrimony.
Some of the stories include more interjections of faith, with Scripture and inspirational themes, such as trusting God, and seeking His will for the future, forgiving others and oneself. "A man's heart deviseth his ways, but the Lord directeth his steps." Proverbs 16:9
My favorite stories were the two with a bit of humor: Playing Possum and A Match Made in Heaven. They had some fun characters and witty dialogue, including Shakespeare quotes. The story called Sing of the Mercy was very good also, with a lot of depth to the characters and storyline. They were all well-written and enjoyable overall.
Recommend to readers who enjoy a good, clean lighter romance in a historical setting, with some faith elements.
The Homegrown Bride by Diana L. Brandmeyer--1887, Illinois
