Kurzbeschreibung

There's a secret matchmaker at work in frontier Texas!

In the small town of Dry Gulch, Texas, a good-hearted busybody just can't keep herself from surreptitiously trying to match up women in dire straits with men of good character she hopes can help them. How is she to know she's also giving each couple a little nudge toward love?

A Cowboy Unmatched
Neill isn't sure who hired him to repair Clara's roof--he only knows Clara desperately needs his help. Can he convince this stubborn widow to let down her guard and take another chance on love?

An Unforeseen Match
Hoping to earn an honest wage on his way to the land rush, Clayton ends up on Grace's doorstep, lured by a classified ad. He may have signed on for more than he expected though--and he may have found the one woman who can keep him from moving on.

No Match for Love
Andrew can't fathom how refined Lucy ended up as the caretaker to his dotty aunt, and somehow her arrival has prompted even more bizarre occurrences around the ranch. When they join forces to unearth the truth, will the attraction between Andrew and Lucy develop into more?

Meeting Her Match
When the tables are turned and a tenderhearted meddler becomes the beneficiary of a matchmaking scheme, her world is turned upside down. As her entire life changes, will she finally be able to tell the banker's son how much she cares for him?

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Match Made in Texas is a wonderful collection of novellas! 6. Februar 2014
Von Melanie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A Match Made in Texas is a wonderful collection of novellas! I loved the role "The Matchmaker" played in the first three stories and how she got her own story in the last one!

**A Cowboy Unmatched by Karen Witemeyer**

I started A Cowboy Unmatched with such eagerness! After reading Karen Witermeyer's previous two "Archer" novels, I could hardly wait to read Neill's story and... it was even better than I had hoped!!

I absolutely loved Neill in this book. It was so sweet how he went above and beyond the actions expected and helped Clara in so many ways. I also really liked the new character, Clara. Her reactions to certain things that happened showcased what a strong woman she was.

I think this is the end to the "Archer" stories, which made it a bittersweet read. I loved getting to know these brothers and I'd love to read more stories with them, should Karen decide to write more "Archer" books; but, if not, this was a great way to end it!

**An Unforeseen Match by Regina Jennings**

An Unforeseen Match was another great novella! I've previously read one of Regina Jennings' full-length novels and enjoyed it, so I was pretty sure I'd like this story - and I did! :)

I loved how a couple of the things from the previous novella were incorporated into the story (for instance, how the barn was patched in places with mud, which Clara from A Cowboy Unmatched had done).

I really liked the characters and definitely felt for Grace and the struggles she endured by being blind. I loved the way Clayton helped Grace as she made adjustments in her life. Great read!

**No Match For Love by Carol Cox**

In my opinion, No Match for Love wasn't as good as the first two novellas. The villain seemed obvious to me, the romance felt like it moved way too quickly and was unbelievable, and there were some things towards the end that didn't feel right to me.

I did like the characters and how Lucy had to learn how to do even the most simple tasks (like making tea). It was fun to read Martha's reaction to that incident.

I liked No Match for Love, but didn't love it. I've previously read Carol Cox's book, Love in Disguise, which I really liked.

**Meeting Her Match by Mary Connealy**

Meeting Her Match was a good conclusion to A Match Made In Texas! I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, so I was glad to find that it was a really enjoyable and funny read.

Meeting Her Match was the shortest of the four novellas (it was only a little over 70 pages), but there were still some pretty hilarious scenes and "how dare he do that" moments. There were some things that bugged me about this story (like how the father had a complete change of character without any reason being given and when the story repeated some things needlessly, in addition to some other things), but all in all I really enjoyed this novella.

**Collection as a whole**

Overall, A Match Made In Texas was a very enjoyable read! My favorite novella was A Cowboy Unmatched, then An Unforeseen Match, but the other two were also good...it's just some things about them I didn't care for all that much. I definitely recommend this novella collection, though, as it is really good! If you enjoy historical romance, I think you'll like it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth the wait! 28. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book solely on the fact that Karen Witemeyer was a contributing author and I was NOT disappointed. It was great reading about Neill Archer finding true love and getting an update on the other Archer brothers as well.

The other stories in the book were cute too. I read this book in one evening and started over again the next day because I enjoyed it so much.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Texan matchmaking from stealth to 12-guage 22. Dezember 2013
Von Harold Wolf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In Dry Gulch, TX, a town near nothing but a tumbleweed, a do-gooder keeps panning out acts of kindness for others in need, resulting in romantic nuggets. Every two nuggets buy a wedding ring. Expect Bible-toting, praying cowboys in this here neck of Texas. "Preaching" restricted to wedding ceremonies.
After finishing reading these 4 Texan novellas, I were hankerin' to take my own gal in a stagecoach to Dry Gulch for a second honeymoon.
Fun romance, historical (sometimes hysterical) cowboy style.
All stories begin in 1893. Spur for a fast romantic reading ride.

A COWBOY UNMATCHED -Karen Witemeyer
Neil Archer dreams of returning to a family ranch deserted 2 years earlier. First he had something to prove. Very pregnant Widow Danvers' roof leaked. Work to be had. The "shack" needed more than shingles. Was that what Neill was lured there for? The shotgun introduction could lead to anything. A secret someone caused 2 lives to meet head-to-head. Just how a kiss works.

AN UNFORESEEN MATCH -Regina Jennings
Grace O'Malley, newly visually handicapped; no, blind & without her teaching position, gets moved into the old Clara Danvers house (novella #1). Could she snag a husband with an advertisement during next month's land run? Cowboy Clayton yearns for some of that land, but a man can't race with a dead horse. Dern the luck. Clayton answers the ad posted in the Irish lass's behalf. A handyman's pay might buy a fast mare.

NO MATCH FOR LOVE -Carol Cox
Lucy's sewing circle prays for her plight just prior to Pastor delivering a secret sealed envelope with an offer. An answer? To find out, she heads to the Andrew Simms' ranch as companion to his aged aunt. The delusions of her charge are preferable to repetitive proposals of repulsive Walter in Dry Gulch. The ranch welcome didn't reflect such. Next, ranch life gets crazy & head-over-heals.

MEETING HER MATCH -Mary Connealy
Schoolmarm Hannah, 20s, acting-ma to 3 sibling boys, has a Dry Gulch secret and an unspoken heartthrob desire. Marcus, lone unwed Christian man in town, partners at his Pa's bank. Will the Dry Gulch December end with "she" washing the socks of "he?" Will the anonymous town matchmaker intervene? Nay, tragedy strikes Hannah's house.

Only negative is a lovely girl's head being chopped in half on the cover.
Romance even a cow-BOY can read. With darlin', of course.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Collection!!! 26. Dezember 2013
Von Laura Pol - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I absolutely loved A Cowboy Unmatched by Karen Witemeyer! It was so good and definitely had me rooting for Neill through all his trials! Despite that the romance was so short, Karen did a great job in having real love blossom to it's fullest! I didn't feel it was rushed or was too fake to really happen! I also loved coming back to the Archers and hearing Neil's story! They were such a fun family with some rough edges! Going to miss them!

Regina Jennings wrote the very interesting story An Unforseen Match! I thought was intriguing how she tackled this one, but to say the least she did an amazing job! I was surprised how much I loved Grace and Clayton's romance as well as how unique their pasts would untie them together! Plus they both had a hard-headed streak that made me giggle at times! An Unforeseen Match is definitely the perfect title for this one!

I really enjoyed the mystery part of No Match for Love by Carol Cox! It reminded me of old episodes of Scooby Doo with a "phantom" and "spooky" noises then to find out at the end why someone was trying to scare the gang in the first place! The only difference here is that Lucy is the one who is hired! She was so awesome in standing up to her fears and being a willing student to learn a new way of life! I also really enjoyed Aunt Maratha's character! She was a hoot!

I also absolutely loved Mary Connealy's Meeting Her Match! It was so unique and interesting with an untypical hero! He was so easy to relate too, especially with his blushing! Plus I loved the overall plot of this one and the new insight that the main character Hannah shares about Leah from the Bible!

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this novel so much and loved each of the novellas for different reasons! I didn't feel they were so similar that I wanted to stop reading since they were all so diverse! I also didn't feel that the romance was unrealistic even though each story wasn't that long. The best thing about this group of romance stories however is the different Biblical messages that each author wove into the character's lives! Definitely a must read if you love Christian romance!

I give this novel a 5 out of 5 stars!

I received this novel for free in exchange for an honest review! All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review! (Thank you so much Regina Jennings!)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome! 1. Januar 2014
Von Kav - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Four wonderful stories told in four distinct voices. Kudos to Bethany House for pooling together such a rich resource of talent! I am a fan of each of these authors so I knew I was in for a powerhouse read. Loved the common thread that sifted through all four stories...just a barely there wisp in A Cowboy Unmatched that grew more substantial and increased my anticipation by the time I reached the last story, Meeting Her Match. One of the best novella collections I have read.
