Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance

Veterinarian Eric Wilson is stunned when his three daughters take finding a new mom into their own hands by placing a classified ad in the town newspaper. He’s even more upset when he learns that his mother was in on the scheme.

Amy Spencer takes the call, since she works temporary at the newspaper office. She’s charmed by the three young girls and their grandmother, whom she meets when she hears something break and then silence. Afraid someone was hurt, she leaves her job and races to the house where she finds nothing more than a mischievous dog, the adorable girls, and the sweetest grandmother. But the ad turns into more than an ad, instead it is front page news when the town reporter hears the story.

Eric is not so happy when his story hits the front page news, and even less thrilled when his struggling veterinarian practice suddenly is at capacity with single women without pets. Not knowing how to handle it, but blaming Amy, Eric goes to offer her a job. She accepts, at least until she leaves town, but…is she really going anywhere? And if she is, will Eric let her?

DADDY’S LITTLE MATCHMAKERS is a charming romance filled with delightful little girls, quirky characters and a romance that will make your knees weak. Amy is a sweetheart, kind and considerate, though far from perfect, and Eric, in contrast, was irritable and cranky, not at all the stuff of your normal romance. Still, I couldn’t help but fall in love with him.

This was a very sweet romance that you needn’t be ashamed to share with your teenaged daughter or your grandmother, yet there’s enough sparks to satisfy anyone. If you are looking for a great beach read, then DADDY’S LITTLE MATCHMAKERS is a book you’ll want to consider. Discussion questions are included at the end. $5.75. 217 pages.
