Nicole Hunley is perfectly happy being single, thank you very much. But her brother Kevin, who works at an advertising firm and is married with three kids, can’t understand why she isn’t interested in falling in love. His new coworker Lori reminds him so much of his sister that he knows they would be perfect for each other. The trouble is convincing Nicole to give Lori a chance.

Under the pretense of a summer cookout, Kevin lures Nicole to his house to meet Lori. But Nicole won’t be fooled so easily. She is bound and determined not to enjoy herself, and she already knows she won’t like Lori. She comes only for the free food, which makes it all the more surprising when she connects with a gorgeous woman at the drinks table. Forget Lori — this is the woman Nicole wants to spend the rest of the evening with.

Is Kevin’s matchmaking attempt a success? Or does Nicole find romance on her own? or maybe some things truly are as advertised.

My View:

This is a cute short story about a woman whose brother wants to set her up on a blind date. It is a light and easy read. It’s technically sound. I really enjoyed the twist and the writing style. This is a fun story by a wonderful author and I am very glad I read it. For a longer read by Ms Marie check out Secrets and Shadows and Beyond the Ridge, both of them excellent! She also has three more titles available but I have not had the chance to read them…yet.
