Death won't stop a determined matchmaker in this offbeat and charming new tale. Chapman's gift for creating characters you love spending time with is on full display in this first of what appears to be a trilogy. A wonderful way to escape the world's daily pressures!

Willa Kent's big heart tends
to get her in trouble. When shipping magnate Bram Sinclair confesses that
he's dying, she agrees to help him
by voting his proxy to select which one of his three beloved grandsons will run the business. It turns out that Bram has much more up his sleeve; he dies before Willa can cast her vote, and it turns out Bram left most of the company to her on the condition she marry one of his grandsons.

From the first, Sam Sinclair and
Willa strike sparks off each other. Sam is a bit surprised to find himself captivated by this klutzy yet formidable young woman, and given the circumstances, how can he ever convince Willa of his true feelings? (POCKET STAR, Nov., 384 pp., $6.99)

The Man Must Marry

Submitted by Robin in PA on January 20, 2011 - 8:37pm.

At a very important meeting of Sinclair Shipping Company, Sam Sinclair's millionaire grandfather sends Willa Kent to vote his proxy. Everyone thinks the old man has lost his mind, but Sam quickly figures out that his grandfather wants one of his three grandsons to marry Willa, and this is his way to force the issue. When Sam's grandfather dies suddenly, he and Willa team up to find a loophole in his crazy will. But soon Sam finds his Grandfather's offbeat scheme is growing more attractive by the moment.

This is the first book I've read by Janet Chapman. I like her writing style and found her characters quirky but down-to-earth. I'll definitely pick up more books by this author. My rating: 4 Stars.
