THE MATCHMAKERS OF BUTTERNUT CREEK
With small-town charm and the perfect amount of humor, Perrine’s second novel set in Butternut Creek is sweet and engaging. Although the romance develops more slowly than readers may want, the plot does move forward toward love for the young pastor Adam.
The “Widows” of Butternut Creek want nothing more than to see their pastor, Adam Jordan, married and settled down. Yet all of their fix-ups don’t seem to lead him toward that relationship. Just when they are about to give up, Gussie Milton enters the picture. But the Widows aren’t aware of her troubled past, and Gussie isn’t sure she can let go and trust God to lead in a relationship.
