Broken Things to Mend (Power of the Matchmaker series) by Karey White

broken things to mend

Celia is in desperate need of a change--a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon's Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She's wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters? What Celia doesn't plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia's past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.

This is the beginning of a series I am really, really looking forward to.  And what a great beginning it is!  This is the first book in the Power of the Matchmaker series.  Every book in this series is by a different author and each book can stand alone but each has a common character and a common theme.  The prequel novella to this series is called Power of the Matchmaker and that is the only book I would suggest before starting this series.  It introduces you to a Chinese matchmaker who will play a role in every book to come.

Karey White is a talented writer and I have enjoyed reading her books.  She starts thing off just right with this book, Broken Things to Mend.

My heart took to both Celia and Silas right away.  They were broken but strong and I loved them both.  My heart was invested in them individually and together.  Their stories were personable and felt real to me.  All the best of elements to have in a book.  As a reader, I'm always looking for real connections to characters and stories.

I read through this book quickly and in the end let out a big sigh of satisfaction and relief.  It made my heart happy.  I cannot wait to see what is coming next in this series!  One of my all time favorites (Rachael Anderson!!) is up next month.  Woot!  This is going to be a fun year for reviewing!

Content:  some talk of rape and abuse, drug addiction, but not in great detail.
