Love is Come by Heather B. Moore (Power of the Matchmaker)

Love is Come by Heather B. Moore

Summary from Goodreads:
Nelle Thompson lives a life of privilege during the turn of the century New York City. When her parents are killed in a terrible accident, she’s forced to live with her aunt’s family in a small town in Connecticut, and treated as a poor relation with no financial independence. Broken hearted and riddled with insomnia, Nelle’s health begins a downward spiral. When a locked part of her heart blossoms around her cousin’s fiancĂ© Mathew Janson, Nelle doesn’t know if she can endure one more heartbreak. Miss Pearl, owner of the local apothecary shop, becomes a mother figure to Nelle, but a fateful summer day has Nelle questioning everything she's ever believed and wondering if she’ll ever love again.

Received ebook from author in exchange for an honest review.

My Review:
This is the 4th book in the Power of the Matchmaker series. One book will be released each month during this coming year. Each book can stand alone. The common thread through the series is "The Matchmaker". Miss Pearl, the matchmaker, appears in each book.

The fun thing about this series is that there is no specific time or place for the story. Some are historical, some are contemporary. This is historical which is probably my favorite genre. I love being transported to a different time.

I like this story. I tend to like happy stories and this one is actually pretty sad to me. The main character has so much disappointment and heart ache in her life. I so desire for her to be happy, but it takes the entire book to get to that point.

In the Power of the Matchmaker books that I've read so far, Miss Pearl is a bright spot. She is positive, helpful, and her interactions with the characters are just wonderful. Her role in this one has some of that, but she also lets the main character flounder a bit. It upsets me that Miss Pearl isn't perfect. For some reason I like to think of her as not making any mistakes. I feel like she did make mistakes in this story.

I really like this series and plan on reading each one and seeing how Miss Pearl affects the lives of people across time and setting.

Warnings: None

I would let my 18 year old read this book.
