FINDING HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER (4.5) by Marie Ferrarella: On the recommendation of Cecilia Parnell, the owner of the cleaning service handling his deceased sister’s apartment, university professor Chris Culhane enlists Cecilia’s daughter, P.I. Jewel Parnell, to find his nephew Joel’s father. He doesn’t expect to get Jewel’s help in other ways with Joel or to fall for the bubbly, attractive investigator. Jewel, in turn, doesn’t expect to become intricately involved in the lives of her handsome client or his nephew. A touching, heartwarming story about three genuinely lonely souls who find each other.

Finding Happily Ever-After A disapointment

Submitted by mlacroix on August 17, 2010 - 5:26pm.

From Back: Private investigator Jewell Parnell doesn't believe in fairy-tale romance. What she does believe in are low-risk, short-term flings and ignoring her mother's constant matchmaking attempts. But her newest clients--a solemn, sexy professor and his grieving little nephew--might just give Jewell the lesson she so badly needs!
Christopher Culhane hires Jewell to locate his deadbeat ex-brother-in-law, never intending to fall for her or build a family of his own.
Yet drawn by her beauty, Christopher is soon determined to prove to Jewell that she can find happily ever after... Even if he has to do it one kiss at a time.

I have to be honest this book was pleasent, but it seemed to rushed to be really good,

We have in this story a not so subtle matchmaking mother. She comes across a single, intelligent , and good looking man. How fortuitous that he is looking for a private investigator . Her daughter is a private investigator and she desperately wants her daughter to find a love match so she sets up a meeting between the two.

Jewel takes on the case. In between time she helps the clueless uncle uncle Christopher reconnect with his nephew,
This is a classic case of the uncle being a fish out of water.

What follows is a heartwarming and enjoyable story.
