This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Nelle Thompson lives a life of privilege during turn-of-the-century New York City. When her parents are killed in a terrible accident, she’s forced to live with her aunt’s family in a small town in Connecticut, and she is treated as a poor relation with no financial independence. Broken hearted and riddled with insomnia, Nelle’s health begins a downward spiral. When a locked part of her heart blossoms around her cousin’s fiancé Mathew Janson, Nelle doesn’t know if she can endure one more heartbreak. Miss Pearl, owner of the local apothecary shop, becomes a mother figure to Nelle, but a fateful summer day has Nelle questioning everything she's ever believed and wondering if she’ll ever love again.

Critic Reviews

"As Moore narrates the story from the alternating perspectives of Nelle and Mathew, readers should be caught up in the magical romanticism of the tale. The fast-paced book remains appealing even as it deals with difficult topics, ranging from death and depression to love and redemption. Moore tackles each issue with wisdom and grace." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Great writing, okay story

The writing is very good, however I did not overly enjoy the story itself. It was odd that Pearl herself caused so much drama...the main character thinking she's had a mental breakdown because Pearl vanished caused much more harm than any good she ever did. Also, I didn't care much for the main character. She is kind, yes, but she is a weenie who doesn't stand up for herself. I wish more heroines were written to be kind -and- with a backbone of steel (while also not being overcorrected to being contrary for the sake of being contrary).

Beautiful

This was a beautiful story. I love this author's works and loved listening to this one set in this time period. Sweet and gentle characters and I loved Miss Pearl the Matchmaker.

Definitely recommend this for anyone who enjoys a good period novel. Part of the 12 book series, Power of the Matchmaker, where the only common aspect is Miss Pearl, who appears throughout all the books over many different time periods.

Listen and enjoy!

Beautiful story, wonderfully narrated

Would you consider the audio edition of Love Is Come to be better than the print version?

Wow. That is an unexpected question. I loved reading this book very much. However, there are obvious advantages to the audio version. That notwithstanding, I must admit that this story and this narrator create quite a unique and romantic spell, that somehow exceeds the limitations of mere words on paper.

What other book might you compare Love Is Come to and why?

For some reason, Love is Come reminds me of works by Ciara Knight. The sweetness, nostalgia and happily ever afters help me make such a connection.

Which scene was your favorite?

The train station. It has to be that special moment.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

a tender, nostalgic love story

Any additional comments?

This is one of those audiobooks that I could listen to over and over again. The narrator is exceptional.

Lovely story

The narrator is great. The story was good. The story had good substance. Nell was a bit wimpy as a main character. She seemed to have more spunk before her parents died. Then she rolls over and let's people walk all over her and becomes convinced she has had a mental break. She worries more then necessary about what other people think. She is a nice person so I was happy that she gets her happy ending.
