    "4.5 STARS OF YUMMY GOODNESS :)"
    Any additional comments?

    This is such a sweet story. I love sappy, sweet, love stories. They just make me happy. When I am in a foul mood I know I can pick up a "love" story and just be happy. This book did that for me.

    Of course it has it's frustrating parts, but that's what keeps me listening :). It's so aggravating listening too a book and knowing that the characters need to get together and they just don't see it. UGH...hehe.

    Tillie has dreamt about being a ladies maid for years. Her mother has dreamed of it even longer than that. Tillie's mother prepped her for being a ladies maid her whole life. Tillie is a very determined young woman, and does all she can to take over for Mrs. Vanderbilt's foreign maid when she leaves. What Tillie didn't expect is Mack.

    Mmmm....Mack. Handsome, yummy, sweet Mack. Tillie didn't expect Mack. She didn't expect to be drawn to him. She didn't expect Mack to be such a good man. She didn't expect Mack to watch out for her even without her asking. Mack is who all women wish for. hehe. Book boyfriends. HEHE. Mmmm.mmmm...Mack.

    This story is so sweet. I loved the setting, the writing, the narrator. Everything. It was just what I was looking for. I love the LOVE story.

    If you are looking for a sweet, historical romance this book is just the right thing for you. I loved reading about the house, the way things worked in the house. I love reading about it, but I know I never would have been able to live back then! Even if it gets a little aggravating at times.

    How hard it was to give up on a dream she thought she had wanted all her life.

    "Nice light story"
    What did you like best about Maid to Match? What did you like least?

    I liked the way Tellie stood up for herself and how she is sure of herself and always composed and polite , but I didn't like the love interest Mack .. he is too rough and controlling


    If you’ve listened to books by Deeanne Gist before, how does this one compare?

    No .. if I do I will compare


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when he helped her with Mrs. Priest's trunk


    Did Maid to Match inspire you to do anything?

    hmmm , if it wasn't for the ending I would say it inspired me to stand up for myself and never let anyone control my dreams


    Any additional comments?

    nice book .. but I've read better
