So it's 2016, which means THE POWER OF THE MATCHMAKER series is officially on!
If you know who Rachael Anderson, this series is pretty much her brain child. She first brought up to me in 2014 when we were at the same conference. She had a vision of 12 different authors writing a series that included the same matchmaker, with one standalone book coming out each month. At the time, I wasn't a romance writer, but she invited me to join the club anyway.
Since I adore Rachael, I said yes.
For almost a year, I didn't really hear anything more about it. Then, in the beginning of 2015, I get an email from Rachael saying that they're scheduling the books and asking me if I'm still in. I said yes, and of the months remaining, I chose November.
The concept of the series is introduced in the novella, The Power of The Matchmaker. This is where we are introduced to Mae Li, the somewhat supernatural matchmaker who plays a role in each of the books in the series. Some of the books in the series are dramas, some are comedies. The one thing they have in common? Without Mae Li, the protagonists would never end up together.
Such is the case in the first book in the series.
Book 1 in The Power of the Matchmaker series is by bestselling author Karey White. Broken Things to Mend tells the tale of Celia, a girl on the run. The open road of the unknown is less terrifying to Celia than the world she knows, which is why she spends nearly every penny getting to a place chosen at random on a map.
If you're ready for a book that deals with some tough subjects and shows the power bring the good Samaritan in someone's life can have, this book for you.
As a reminder, ALL the books in the series are standalone books. Reading the prequel novella helps you understand why and how the books in the series can take place over more than a century with Mae Li still being around to participate in each generation, but each book stands on its own legs.
So join the ride, and check out a different book each month from a different bestselling author. Start today with The Power of The Matchmaker and Broken Things to Mend.
