May 2011

Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance

The matchmakers are determined to have grandbabies before a certain member of their peers, but in order to do that, first they must get their grandchildren married off. Two of them have managed to get their grandchildren engaged, but are having a hard time getting them to the altar. So now Sassy Evans and Perty Bradley are trying their hands at matching up their grandchildren, both professors at a college in Nashville.

Caylor is thirty-four years old and teaches English at the college. She is also a published author and is juggling her writing career and her teaching career as well as caring for her widowed grandmother, Sassy. She doesn’t believe she’ll ever marry.

Dylan is only twenty-eight, and he’s recently come out of a worldly relationship that cost him his teaching job at another university. He’s attracted to the lovely Caylor, but keeps finding himself in uncomfortable positions around her.

Both Dylan and Caylor have secrets that could ruin any chance of happiness between them. What will it take for them to find the courage to face their pasts to open up the door to the future?

THE ART OF ROMANCE is the second book in Ms. Dacus’ Matchmakers series, but it easily stands alone. However, readers might want to read the first book to learn about Caylor’s friend, Zarah’s relationship.

Ms. Dacus writes about young professionals struggling to balance careers and relationships, a combination that isn’t always easy. If you are looking for a good contemporary romance then THE ART OF ROMANCE is a good book to consider. 320 pages. $12.99.
