    This novel is the final book in the Power of the Matchmaker series. It has been such a fun series and I'm sad to say goodbye to Miss Pearl(the matchmaker and the one character who ties the series together), she has been fun to read about. Each author was able to portray her in their own way and give...

    Seventeen year old Mary Buchanan lives with her father, Dr. Sidney Buchanan, and his sister (her Aunt), Mrs. Susan Yates. Aunt Yates’s “favorite hobby is suffering” (I love that line. LOL), and “her favorite companion is her own ill- health”. Dr. Buchanan is dead set on any ...

    This is the final book of the Matchmaker series. I have read all the Matchmaker books and have loved most of them. I love that this series has not been "cookie-cutter" at all! The Reformer was set in the 1830's in England. Mary Buchanan leads a very suppressed and sheltered life while she keeps hopi...

    I have read all but one of the Matchmaker books and this is one that had elements I liked and some I disliked. Generally, I enjoy Regency/Victorian period fiction.

    This is the final book in the Power of the Matchmaker series. I have enjoyed the diversity of the series - each book is so different yet tied together with the recurring character of Miss Pearl, yet she is also portrayed differently by each author. I enjoyed this book but it wasn't quite one of my f...

    This is a continuation of the Matchmaker series. The books don't tie to each other except for one character, Pearl, who matches people together.In this book, Pearl plays a very minor role and in fact I wasn't even 100% sure she was in the book since she was referred to as Mrs. Chin. That aside, the ...

    The Reformer is much more than a simple, shallow romance. You either "get it" or you don't. In my mind, it approaches real literature with its layers within the story. First, you have the real history that's going on in England. At the end, the author gives a recap of the actual events that she used...
