Turnabout's Fair Play
by Kaye Dacus
The third installment of Dacus' Matchmakers series, Turnabout's Fair Play focuses on Flannery McNeill, continuing the story that started with Zarah Mitchell in Love Remains and Caylor Evans in The Art of Romance.
Flannery McNeill is an editor at Lindsley House Publishing Company. She has just seen her two best friends get engaged, but she has no prospects.
Flannery can't stand Jamie O'Connor. He appears to be everything she hates, plus he has a huge ego. When life circumstances cause him to re-evaluate his passions and life's calling, Flannery and Jamie discover they might have more in common than they realized.
As the premise of the series is on matchmaking, hence the series' title Matchmakers, all of the characters' grandparents are trying to marry off their grandchildren. I love what Kaye does with the cute busy-body grandmothers. In this book, both Flannery's grandfather and Jamie's grandmother end up finding love too.
I really loved this book. Kaye does an outstanding job of creating these characters. The chemistry between her characters is amazing. I found myself wanting to yell at some of the characters at times - in a good way, of course. And as someone who loves a good banter, I have to give Kaye a pat on the back for the witty dialogue in this book.
Perhaps the best part of Kaye's books for me is the fact that her characters are in their 30s, a little older than most of the heroines in romances out there now. She also develops her characters in a way that seems more genuine. I have my friend Becky to thank for introducing me to this author. She and I have the same reasons for loving Kaye's books!
I highly recommend this book. It will be available at your favorite bookseller at the end of October. Click here to pre-order or read a portion of the book!
