Anne Best was bored with her life in Texas. But when this feisty forty-five year old starts a new life in the Big Apple working for Gherring Inc., she stumbles into more adventure than she bargained for.

Billionaire Steven Gherring always makes the Most Eligible Bachelors list, but he’s given up looking for love.

Gherring’s grandmother, known to everyone as Gram, is on a not-so-secret campaign to find a wife for her grandson.

When veteran matchmaker, Anne Best, joins forces with Gram to find a match for Gherring, passions rise along with hemlines.

Will they find a match for Gherring?
And will Anne take a chance on love?

Filled with lovable characters, plenty of romance and frequent plots twists, Her Best Match will have you tingling with anticipation and laughing out loud.

My Opinion:

Anne Best had been widowed for 15 years. After both of her daughters moved out and were on their own, she realized life was boring. Putting out her resume in the hopes of finding something new to do, she jumped at the chance to interview for an executive assistant position in New York City. Not because she thought she’d get it, but because the trip was fully paid for and at least she’d get a break from her dull existence in Weatherford, TX. To her surprise, she was offered the job and then her entire world changed.

Anne was also a matchmaker. She instinctively knew when two people would hit it off. In the process, she decided her boss, Mr. Stephen Gherring, was lonely and would benefit from having someone who could love and care for him and not his money or the prestige of being seen with him. Too bad all of her attempts at setting him up with someone failed. Her own attempts at dabbling her toes back in the dating pool also kept backfiring. Maybe moving to New York City had been a mistake.

While the reader can see where this book is headed from a mile away, it’s still a delightful read. The lighthearted and clean romance is a breath of fresh air in this day and time of tawdry scenes being tossed in just because. It’s also nice to have older characters for once. Not everyone is in the 20s and looking perfect.

Anne is a joy to read. Her inability to lie worth a darn can be absolutely hilarious. She’s quite personable and I found her charming.

Stephen is also an interesting character. A powerful business man with quite the reputation, and yet, maybe everything isn’t quite as it appears.

I stayed up way too late trying to finish this book. Though I regretted it the next morning when I realized the book was finished and I couldn’t dive back in to this delightful romantic comedy.

It’s a terrific read if you enjoy clean romances (who knew they existed?) that are funny at the same time. It was a breath of fresh air and exactly what I needed.
