Book Description: From the Power of the Matchmaker series:
Every time Andra Stone crosses paths with Everett Covington, trouble follows. First she loses her scholarship. Then she loses the apartment she’d wanted more than anything. But tragedy hits hardest when she loses her grandmother—the best friend Andra has ever known. She determines that Everett is a talisman of ill fortune. When Everett comes to work in her hospital and is applying for the same position she’d been working toward since residency, Andra believes him to be her personal poltergeist.
The human heart has four chambers—four chances to get it right. Andra has only one chance left.
My thoughts: Andra and Everett have been study buddy's and competition for each other since pre-med. They compliment each other but have a long drawn out history. Their story lines are intertwined, they have been there for pivotal moments of each other's lives. Through all of it there has always been a bond of friendship that has bolstered them.
Andra is working to be a heart surgeon. The heart has four chambers. Two receive and two pump out. The chambers can represent the relationship between Andra and Everett. They receive and they give to each other. But they have pride and the drive to succeed that come between them on multiple occasions. It will take all four chambers to work together in order for them to come together. In this case, the fourth time is the charm?
This is another book from the Power of the Matchmaker Series. Each of them stands alone, but when all of them are read, it creates a whole picture of Pearl, the Matchmaker. She has a magical way of bringing couples together. It's nice to think of someone there cheering on couples and helping them find each other.
The book was frustrating for me at times because the characters knew what they wanted, but they let unimportant things get in the way. It took YEARS from the time they met until they were ready to move into the relationship that the reader knew was best for them. I loved the concern and care they had for people around them and the children that were their patients. I just wish they showed a little more kindness and compassion to each other for most of the story. They are forgiving to others, not so much to each other.
This book is a clean romance with kissing.
