Grabbed My Heartstrings....

Heartstrings and Diamond Rings
Jane Graves
Released October 1st, 2011
448 Pages
Grand Central Publishing

In a world full of frogs, Alison Carter is determined to find her prince. Maybe her dating past is more Titanic than Love Boat, but she's seen enough happy marriages to know that true love is possible. No matter what, she won't give up on happily-ever-after. If she can't find Mr. Right, she'll simply hire someone who can.

When Brandon Scott inherits a successful matchmaking business, he thinks his prayers have been answered. Set up a few lonely ladies, collect the fee, how hard can it be? No one needs to know he's not really a professional matchmaker-especially not his first client, the beautiful, spirited Alison. Soon he's falling for her-and her dreams of kids and carpools. But Alison is getting close to figuring out his secret, and if she learns he's deceived her too, she'll walk right out the door, taking Brandon's heart with her.

What a great read....I am still feeling all giddy and excited about this New Release By Jane Graves.  From page one we are laughing at the sarcastic one liners from our heroine, Allison.  She is the average girl and we are drawn to that because she is like our best friend or co worker, so sweet and nice, but she just can't find the right guy.

Enter Brandon, ahhh Handsome Brandon....Right Guy? Well, more like the matchmaker who is trying to make some cash off of his dead grandmothers old business, before he gets his finances together and takes off. 

What happens when these two team up is funny, enjoyable and let me say, it just tugs on your Heartstrings.  I really enjoyed this book, I had that tight chest feeling of sadness and hope for them both throughout the whole book.  I know a book has gotten to me when the tears start...It was just a really great story and even had a few secondary "Love Matches", but they don't take away from the story, they round it out, and that is what I love about this book!!

Add this book to your "TO READ" pile.....If you want to feel the tug of your heartstrings!!
