THE MATCHMAKING PACT
THE MATCHMAKING PACT (4) by Carolyne Aarsen: Raised by a grandmother who continually told her that she was irresponsible, Josie doesn't feel confidently able to raise her orphaned 8-year-old niece, Alyssa. Widower Silas apparently agrees, but his daughter Lily, Alyssa's best friend, doesn't. The girls are determined to become sisters by matching up the two adults. Time is ticking, though, because as soon as Josie's injured grandmother recovers, they're moving away. This charming story, part of the After the Storm miniseries, has a hero struggling to come to terms with the loss of his wife, a heroine trying to overcome her past and two adorable girls determined to bring two lonely people together.
