Matchmaker by Kari Trumbo is the 26th and final book in the Cutter Creek series. This is also a good stand alone story. I have not read the rest in the series and was able to follow along nicely. This is a Christian historical fiction story that takes place in the late 1800’s.
Cora and Peter were more than friends in school, but never voiced it to each other. After her parents’ death she goes to live with an aunt. Now as adults, Peter is struggling to keep his ranch going and doesn’t take time for a family. With the help of his family, and unknown to Peter, Cora becomes his mail order bride.
It is well written with caring characters. It is an easy to read, fun story of second chances. This is a sweet romance novella that can easily be read in an evening.
I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this book, this is my honest review.

About the Author
Kari writes swoony heroes and places that become characters with detail and heart.
Her favorite place to write about is the place her heart lives, (even if she doesn’t) South Dakota.
Kari loves reading, listening to contemporary Christian music, singing when no one’s listening, and curling up near the wood stove when winter hits. She makes her home in central Minnesota, land of frigid toes and mosquitoes the size of compact cars, with her husband of over twenty years. They have two daughters, two sons, one cat, and one hungry wood stove.
