 **I received a complimentary copy via Netgalley. All opinions are my own. 

The Book

Miss Camilla Pierpont, a renowned matchmaker and influential member of the New York Four Hundred, has vowed never to marry after suffering a devastating heartbreak during her debut years ago. However, when she is nearly abducted along the Hudson River, she finds herself rescued by an annoyingly outspoken, albeit fascinating, gentleman who challenges her in a manner she wasn't expecting.

After learning that Camilla Pierpont has enjoyed success with taking wayward young ladies in hand, Mr. Owen Chesterfield travels to the Hudson River Valley determined to convince Camilla to sponsor his sister, who is in desperate need of social rehabilitation.

Knowing her life is in danger, Camilla agrees to Owen's proposition and travels with him to West Virginia, finding herself charmed by the less-than-formal attitude of his small hometown, as well as by Owen himself. But danger waits in the shadows, disrupting what she knows would be the most spectacular match she's ever made--her own.

Book Review

Meeting Her Match is the third book in The Matchmakers series but could definitely be enjoyed as a standalone if you've not read the previous book. 

I always know that when I open a book by Jen Turano, I am in for a story that will have me laughing out loud with quirky characters and hilarious mishaps... and this was absolutely no exception. As a matter of fact, I think it was one of my favorites of her books yet! It drew me in right away and kept me smiling throughout the story! Each character was so well-written and added something to the story. There was a bit of danger, and a whole lot of fun and romance! The apple pie recipe? I couldn't stop grinning! This was truly such a fun story. If you love historical romance and are looking for one that will bring all the humor, this is absolutely one you won't want to miss.
