Is it possible to find two loves in one lifetime?
Dubbed “The Child Whisperer” by his peers, twenty-nine-year-old Jake Harris is a lollipop-sucking, video game-playing pediatrician, who moves to Seashore Cove, Long Island to start a family. What he finds is an immediate attraction to his new nurse, Kate, and a list of reasons why he has to keep his distance.
Kate Henderson is a grieving widow with two teenage boys, struggling to keep her head above water. She knows exactly why she must fight her growing desire for the new doctor, and nothing is going to change that.
But Kate’s sons think Dr. Jake is the perfect match for their mother. When they put their heads together, the duo comes up with crazy little schemes in the hopes of igniting a spark.
The teenagers succeed in throwing them together but is it enough to make their mom and the doctor tear up their lists and take a chance on love?
My Book Review:
Crazy Little Thing Called Matchmaking is a wonderful romance story about second chances.
Author Maggie Van Well weaves an entertaining tale set in Seashore Cove, Long Island, that follows the May-December romance between Kate Henderson, a forty year old widow, mom of two teenage sons, and a pediatric nurse, and Dr. Jake Harris, a twenty-nine year old pediatrician, who recently relocated from Brooklyn Heights to Seashore Cove to take over a retiring doctor's practice.
Written with a nice balance of humor, emotion, and romance, the reader is easily drawn into Kate and Jake's story. Kate is a grieving widow, her husband William passed away from cancer four years ago, and she is still having a hard time moving forward. Kate unexpectedly meets Jake at the local hospital ER, when her thirteen year old son Drew needed stitches to his shin. Kate can't believe that this sexy younger man is her new boss, and as for Jake, he has an instant attraction to the beautiful woman before him. With an undeniable attraction growing between Kate and Jake, a work-romance relationship slowly builds thanks to Kate's two teenage sons, who try everything under the sun to get them together!
Crazy Little Thing Called Matchmaking is an enjoyable and lighthearted second chance romance tale that will keep the reader thoroughly entertained. You can't help but really like Kate, Jake, and Kate's teenage sons Drew and Alex. I found myself laughing, smiling, and cheering Kate and Jake on as their May-December romance blossomed, and as they tried to find a way to merge their two worlds together. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I loved the two boys' antics, I found myself snickering as I turned the pages, bless their little hearts. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
