Review of A Matchmaker in Middlebury

by Anita Higman

Meredith Steinberg takes the stage again in A Matchmaker in Middlebury and is given another chance to dance with destiny and meddle in the romantic affairs of two lovelorn singles. But Meredith’s skills as a yenta are stretched to the limit as she discovers that her golden egg-of-a-plan has a perilous crack. In the end, however, heartstrings are indeed knotted together as two singles find tender love—they’re just not the two people Meredith paired for marital bliss… 

MY REVIEW:   Anita Higman's novelette is a sweet romance.  This is a quick and easy read.  It is one that is sure to leave readers with a smile on their faces.  I was actually thinking that I know of several people who need the services of a matchmaker like Meredith as I read the story.   I rate this novelette 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers.
I received a copy of this novelette from the author in exchange for my honest review.
