Lady Bournaud has mourned the death of her husband for 20 years, with only the company of Beatrice Copland to break up the monotony. She's become selfish and unpleasant and is now determined to correct that in the last few months of her life. She sends invitations to selected guests to spend the Christmas holidays at her home in Yorkshire. But with an unexpected guest thrown into the mix, things do not go as Lady Bournaud has planned. A MATCHMAKER'S CHRISTMAS is a wonderful story that will undoubtedly draw Donna Simpson's readers in until the very last page is turned. (Oct., 224pp, $4.99)
