This summer I'm going to let you guys into my bookshelf to see what I'll be packing away to read at the beach. Every Monday, you can check out a new blog from me about what page turner I have tucked into my beach bag and register to win a night at Moody Gardens Hotel and a Kindle Reader, thanks to my friends at the Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau.
I think we may all know some that's a bit like Dabney Kimball Beech, the lead character in "The Matchmaker." If you couldn't guess it from the title, that's exactly what she does. Dabney has a gift, that some even believe might be "magical," when it comes to turning two people into a happy couple. However, according to her husband and daughter, it's really more meddlesome.
Dabney experiences a HUGE change in her life when her ex comes back into her life and confuses her more than ever. And once tradgedy strikes in her life, Dabney sets out to match make for those in her life before it's too late.
What I loved most was the setting of the book. It's all based in Nantucket and the imagery used to describe the town events was just perfect.
