His Maddening Matchmaker

Harlequin Historical (A Very Village Scandal, Bk. 2). Feb. 2023. 288p. ISBN 9781335723710. pap. $6.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Ned Parker is too busy for the trappings of society. Bringing his family back from the brink of financial ruin has left little time for social encounters, romance, or even proper grooming. His childhood friend Isobel, realizing that this simply will not do, decides to be his matchmaker. As they spend more time together, attending functions and transforming Ned’s appearance, he may already have met his match. This is Heath (The Earl’s Inconvenient Houseguest) at her most playful, with characters that practically leap off the page.
VERDICT Book two of the “A Very Village Scandal” series, this friends-to-lovers romance is a witty and playful Regency romp, perfect for fans of transformation rom-coms like The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot.
