Genre; Regency Romance Novella

Book Description:  From the publisher of the USA TODAY bestselling & #1 Amazon bestselling Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean & Wholesome Romance, comes the Timeless Romance Singles line.

THE MATCHMAKING GAME: A brand new historical romance novella from bestselling author Donna Hatch.

Rowena’s childhood friend, Evan, has returned home from war a handsome, but mysterious stranger. In an effort to bring happiness to her father, not to mention uncover the Evan she remembers from their youth, Rowena seeks to unite their parents. Who better to match a lonely widow and widower together than their adoring children? Her matchmaking game could help their parents find happiness and draw out her childhood friend buried beneath Evan’s new reserve … or it could break more than one heart.

My thoughts: Rowena is full of fun and mischief. She missed her best friend while he was at war. They got into one escapade after another. Unfortunately, he came home somber. She must find a way to bring her best friend back to her, so she thinks of a brilliant plan. She want to play matchmaker for her widower father and his widow mother.

Her plan is more complicated than she first thought. First, Evan made a vow to his dying friend to take care of his younger sister, even marrying her if need be. Second, Evan is experiencing survivors guilt and not in the best frame of mind. Third, he just inherited an estate that is lacking in funds. There are many pressures on him and he feels honor bound to do the "right thing".

This book has some cute twists and turns. All is not as it seems. There are counter plots in the making. The book is a short and fun book to read for the pleasure of reading. I enjoyed my time engaged in the story. Because of the novella length, there isn't a lot of character development. The basics of their childhood are covered and their true character shines forth.  This book is perfect for Regency lovers who need a quick and satisfying story.

The book is clean with kissing.
