Cindy Lambert thought she was done with the small town of Blevins, Wisconsin, but here she is, back in her hometown, managing a bed and breakfast and following her grandmother's dream. The problem is, she's tired of being alone, and there are no single men for miles that she's interested in. Plus, with her busy schedule, she has no time to date anyway. When her best friend coerces her into contacting a matchmaker, she decides to make it work for her.
Trey Zayne, a web designer from Texas, is sick of his sister constantly trying to set him up with women he has no interest in. When he's contracted to do a website for a company called Matchrimony, he finds himself fascinated by the concept. A relational psychologist will interview him and find him a match. The only catch? They will meet at the altar. Can a techie from Texas fit in with a small town girl from Wisconsin? Will they find more than companionship and move straight to love?

This was such a delightful refreshing listen from the author to the narrator it was a pleasure to listen to. It is kind of like a modern day mail order bride with a twist. The match maker has her hands in a little of this along with her own practice but likes to find the perfect match for her clients. She comes and interviews you, finds out your likes and dislikes than goes off to find your mate. Once she finds the perfect person for you, you do not get to meet them, know there name or anything about them until you say I do at the altar. Trey gets into a little trouble when he tries to see his bride before the I dos with is really funny.
Ms. Williams does a wonderful job with the narration from her many different voices to her tones and emotions of each character. I did not hear any background noises or changes in the volume just a clear clean audio with I totally enjoyed. Her male voices were as pleasant as her female ones. You have no trouble knowing who is talking or what they are feeling. What really adds to this audio is when a character laughs, yawns etc so does the narrator. This makes the whole audio so much more believable and enjoyable. Ms. Williams gives so much to this audio as she brings the characters alive before your eyes. You have no trouble picturing the scenes in your mind as she takes you a way to a very enjoyable listen. She has a very pleasant voice that you have to trouble getting into and enjoying. I found myself looking for things to do so I could listen longer. I really hated for this audio to come to the end. I have not listened to anything by this narrator and I am really looking forward to listening to more of her work.
Cindy is lonely and on a dry spell, there just isn’t anyone to date in this little town. Her friend decides she needs to use a matchmaker. That is fine but her friend will be using one as well. Cindy is excited but a little scared of not meeting her mate until the wedding. With one look she is totally hook on this hot hunk of a man. With one kiss she is ready to jump his bones and take her marriage very seriously. The attraction is fast the pull is great. With the bread and breakfast she cannot take time off from work which leads to a few problems between them. With being raised by her very protective grandparents she has a lot to learn and wants to take a step back to learn them only she has put the cart before the horse and is back peddling fast. As a character I really liked her, she is strong , knows what she wants, but very giving and loving. I love the friendships she has and how important her little town is to her. This has not always been the case. She is living her grandmothers dream which has becomes hers.
Trey isn’t the boy next door he is more of a nerd which no women really wants. He has to trouble finding women just none who wants to be with him for more than a few minutes. Once they see his nerdy side off they go. He decides to go with the match maker this way he knows he will get a fresh start with a women who has to stick around after the I dos. He really has got a bum rap with his family being the way they are. Just wait until you meet his sister that girl is something else. He has a few strange practices which will get him in a little hot water. All it took was one look for him to be hook on his wife, once their lips met he wanted to throw her over his shoulder and run right to the bedroom.
The author gives you wonderful characters you can relate with along with an outstanding plot that will have you turning the pages. I love the humor it really adds to the characters making the feel more down to earth. This is a story about starting over getting to really know the person you married, learning to get along and finding your way to happiness. Like with all marriages you have to work out the problems and learn to meet half way. There are many misunderstandings that must be worked out as well as finding away to work in friendships with others into your marriage. Both must give and take as these two will learn. Some people are not happy with this marriage and will try to throw road blocks up. This was a very well written story that is well balanced between friendship, love, humor and getting along. There is a little drama to keep it interesting as well as some very hot steamy scenes. It was a pleasure watching these two falls in love. I just can’t wait to read the next one oh Bob sure has something up his sleeves and I believe Trey gave him a helping hand. I loved the interaction between characters, finding their way was highly entertaining. This is as story full of humor, as the characters make choices not always the right ones. This is one author who knows how to entertain her readers giving you a story you are hanging on too and do not want to end. The ending is outstanding which also leads into the next book which looks to be as much of a wonderful read as this one was. If you really are looking for something that holds you attention and entertains you, you will not go wrong with this audio. From the author to the narrator there is no doubt you will be laughing your way through this delightful story.
I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
Ms. Osbourne created a fun romance. I would have liked to have known more about Trey and his family to understand his sister better. I would have also liked to have known why Trey works in the state of dress/undress. Overall I enjoyed the story. I could not relate to the matchmaker though. I'm not sure why.
I liked the three main characters Cindy, Cissy and Trey. Overall Ms. Williams did a great job differentiating the three main characters. It was easy to listen to the story.
I received a free copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review.
I love the characters and how Kirsten Osbourne writes like you feel your right there in the story
How Trey and Cindy worked together after Cindy says they needed to get to know each better even though they were already married
I loved the scene of Trey's sister with lemonade all over because she told Jean to do what Trey says to make him happy so she poured the lemonade on his sister then it did make him happy lol
wonderful romance and happily ever after
I love all the books in this series
This is a story about two people who meet for the first time at the altar and learning about the new spouses. It is a great story and an interesting premise for love.
