Beth Masters is fed up with her "whiny puke" of a brother Jake, a former NFL star whose spinal injury ended his career and put him in a wheelchair. He's cut himself off from everyone, including his twin sister, Beth, but she has a last-ditch plan to get him to consider another surgery and try to walk again. Beth announces that she's moving to Nashville with her boyfriend John to pursue a music career and leaving Jake and her business partner Gracie in charge of her very successful matchmaking enterprise. Gracie and the combat veteran dog she inherited soon make inroads with Jake, but Beth and John are in danger as a former client stalks Beth and tries to eliminate his competition. With her determination and friends' help, though, Beth's plans come together.
VERDICT Best-selling Michaels's (Eyes Only; Tuesday's Child) latest is a stand-alone novel that's more women's fiction than romance, although happy endings abound. A little more plausibility and suspense, however, would help readers better connect with the story. This novel isn't the best introduction to Michaels, despite it being a one-off, but her many fans will still create demand.
