Melinda prides herself on her matchmaking ability as evident by the number of couples getting hitched in the town of Chester. She wants everyone to find the kind of love she shared with her late husband. Melinda is satisfied to remain the mysterious widowed matchmaker. Facing her future alone is less painful than risking her heart again. Adam is a retired Marine. He longs to have a partner but carries the physical and emotional scars from his last tour of duty. He protects his heart as fiercely as he protects his scars. Until a chance meeting with the highly successful matchmaker, Melinda changes his ideas about his future. Taking a leap of faith Adam signs up for her matchmaking services. In turn Melinda hires Adam as a carpenter to fulfill her wish to have a pergola in her back yard. As the structure is constructed piece by piece their friendship grows. Will Adam and Melinda's relationship develop into something deeper or will the scars from their past keep them from finding love?

Well we all know the ending when we read one of these stories, but the art of the story-teller is how we get there.

This is a sweet cozy romance set in a gorgeous coastline, with a wedding in a dream house – a real dream house – Rosecliff, Newport, Rhode Island – see photo below.


Add in a cute kitten for him, was wounds, PTSD and you have the prototypical wounded soldier, and then a widow and so the story continues/

There is one redeeming feature from the sugar overload, and that is we get an element of therapy for emotional wounds.
