Robyn Reviews: FOUR CHAMBERS (Power of the Matchmaker) by Julie Wright

Book: The Four Chambers (Power of the Matchmaker)
Author: Julie Wright

From Amazon: Every time Andra Stone crosses paths with Everett Covington, trouble follows. First she loses her scholarship, then she loses the apartment she’d wanted more than anything. But tragedy hits hardest when she loses her grandmother—the best friend Andra has ever known. She determines that Everett is a talisman of ill fortune. When Everett comes to work in her hospital and is applying for the same position she’d been working toward since residency, Andra believes him to be her personal poltergeist.

The human heart has four chambers—four chances to get it right. Andra has only one chance left.

Audience: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 219

Rating: 4

This was a good book. I enjoyed reading it and following Andra and Everett and their efforts to get together. Everett has always been in love with Andra, but I felt like he sometimes didn’t try very hard with her, but then again, Andra wasn’t very helpful either. I sometimes felt like they weren’t very much I love with each other. I think Pearl got really frustrated with them, sometimes. Which actually makes them pretty real characters. I sometime felt very much like wringing Andra’s neck. :)

I really liked that they were friends first and had each other’s best interests at heart. Even when they thought they weren’t going to be together. I really like how each author in this series portrays Pearl in a different light. She has so many different ways of matchmaking! You will really enjoy reading this book. It is clean and sweet. The characters have to overcome many obstacles in order to be together. Read it, you won’t be sorry.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Review:  The Power of the Matchmaker series is lovely and fun. This book, Love is Come by Heather B Moore, live up to any expectations by this wonderful author! Historical Romance is one of my favorite genres. And Heather Moore is one of my favorite authors.

Nellie is a spoiled, yet sweet young girl. She is out to find her true love and thinks she has, when she is let down horribly by someone who is just after some kisses. When her parents are killed in an accident, she is sent off to live with her Aunt to await her inheritance. There she is treated as a maid and forced to fend for herself as much as possible. When she meets Pearl, she is shown how she can grasp her own happiness and Pearl teaches her how to see the good in others, despite their obvious differences and less than desirable qualities. Her relationship to Matthew, her cousin’s soon-to-be fiancĂ©, is sweet and frustrating because it seems that both want to be together, but the cousin always stands in the way. I love the way Matthew treats her with respect and concern even when others think she is really crazy. I love Pearl. She tries so hard to push these two together, but they are determined to do the ‘right thing’ and stay away from each other. Through out it all, Nelle learns to love others and overcome the harshness with which she is treated and see the good in her Aunt and cousin. She is able to see beyond the surface. Matthew is an honorable, and lovable hero. He loves with all his heart.

If you are looking for good, clean romance with a little sass, you will love this book. There is sweet kissing and swoon worthy scenes that won’t embarrass you if your kids pick up this book :) I love that.

Review: MAGIC BITTER, MAGIC SWEET by Charlie N. Holmberg

Audience: Adult (Clean)
Genre: Fantasy
Length: 306 pgs

Rating: 5!

Audience: Adult (Clean) Genre: Fantasy Length: 306 pgs Rating: 5! I'm just a big fat Charlie Holmberg fan. I remember the first thing I read of hers, THE PAPER MAGICIAN of course. I'd planned on reat IMMEDIATELY and loved it with all my heart. 

MBMS is just...awesome. I loved the gentle fantasy to it, the heartbreak, and the lessons learned, the sweetness, the bitterness (ha!) the love, the sighs. Just great. And I won't tell you about the part I MOST MOST connected with, because that would be spoilery and I'm not mean like that. 

Language - 0
Sex - 1 (Mentions of character's {committed} relationship activities ;) )
Violence - 2 (Non-graphic discussions of slave violence, an attack on a village.)
Overall Rating - PG-13

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
