Review: Meeting Her Match
Debra Clopton has a wit and voice that sings across the pages of Meeting Her Match. This is the first book of hers that I have read, but won’t be my last.
In Meeting Her Match, Sheri Marsh just wants to be left alone. But the Mule Hollow Matchmakers are bound and determined to force her over her broken heart and into a forever relationship. Pace Gentry, a taciturn cowboy, returns to town in time to become Sheri’s Plan B. If she can trick everyone into thinking she’s happily involved, then maybe they’ll leave her alone.
The book is a frolic, filled with metaphors and similes that are perfect for a Texas cowboy romance. The sparks fly early and often as Pace and Sheri butt heads. He’s trying hard to follow God, but it’s an effort for the new believer. Sheri is convinced that God has decided she’s not worth the effort. And she refuses to risk putting a man or future children through the chaos her parents subjected her to growing up.
The supporting cast is rich for category romance. And the humor is fantastic. Through the twists and turns, Sheri has to decide whether to follow her emotions, or stick with her head. And Pace learns to close the door to his other options and truly trust God to lead him.
If you’re looking for a fun and different romance, this one is perfect.
