Book Description

October 1997
A Delightful Little Story From a Beloved Novelist!

Cynthia loves her widowed father and deeply appreciates his help and attention after the sudden, tragic loss of her own spouse. But life must go on she knows that even without everyone saying it. Her best friend Judith suggests that if her father found someone and got married, Cynthia would have more "breathing space." And Cynthia cautiously begins to think that maybe isn't such a bad idea. Especially when an attractive widow, mother of an attorney in their local congregation, appears on the scene. With several interested parties working toward the same goal, and Cynthia's two young sons cheering them on, surely it won't be too difficult to meet with success. But the results are hardly what they had anticipated-.

Product Description

From Library Journal

Christian fiction powerhouse Oke (Another Homecoming, Bethany, 1997) gives a slight, familiar story some emotional depth in this novella about love and the mysterious plans of God. Widow Cynthia Longley loves her father dearly, but the widower has far too much time on his hands. To give him something to do other than hang around her house, Cynthia hatches a plot with bachelor P.C. Weston, a fellow church member. Their idea is to fix up Cynthia's father with P.C.'s mother. Anyone who can't see the outcome of this has never read a romance novel. However, Oke brings it to life with a charm and a gentle grace that are all her own. Recommended.

The Matchmakers is a wonderful book in classic Janette Oke style. It is short enough to finish in an evening, which you will want to do once you start reading! The last chapter will leave a smile on your face and satisfaction in your heart!

Janette Oke is back. This book is one of the sweetest, poignant stories I've read in a while. It shows the ironies of life in a good light. A story that brings back tender moments, and the surprise of love just happening. A must read! Two thumbs up!
5.0 out of 5 stars Warm, Homey Aug. 19 2008
By Andrea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Cynthia and Judith are best friends. They meet for coffee and a danish each Saturday morning at the Koffee Kup.

Cynthia is concerned about her father since her mother died. She thinks he needs to find someone. She and Judith decide not to set him up, but to subtly make things convenient for him and a nice widow.

This book is a nice, warm Christian Fiction with a touch of Romance. I like the book because it has a warm, family, Christian atmosphere. There are encouraging things in this book. I also enjoy reading about warm relationships; this book is centered a lot around relationships.

I also love the book because it reminds us that God is in control and has the Master Plan.

There was a nice twist at the end.
