Soon Brittany is charming the twins and their father as well. But Parker still clings to the bitterness of his past, a past that has made him a recluse on his isolated Montana ranch, distanced him from God, and kept him from finding love.
Can Brittany’s prayers and two little matchmakers soften Parker’s heart and help him find love with his perfect Montana match?

More from Merrillee
One of my writing goals is to set at least one book in every state in which I have lived. So far I have written books set in Washington State, Texas, Florida, South Dakota, Georgia, Ohio, Montana, Massachusetts, and Tennessee. I still have to write books set in Illinois and Arizona to complete my goal. Just for fun I’ve gone astray and have written a couple of Christmas novellas set in Maryland, where my older daughter lives. I’m currently working on the third book in that series.
A Match to Call Ours is my Montana book. I lived there when I was a little girl. We lived near Billings from the time I was four until I was ten, when we moved to South Dakota. So as you can imagine my memories are vague, but I’ve visited Montana numerous times as an adult.
Brittany Gorman, the heroine of the book, is originally from Washington State, and if you read my Pinecrest series, you first meet her as a teenager in Second Chance Gift. I have three teenagers in that series, and I wanted to write their adult stories. Brittany’s story comes first, followed by Max’s story, then Amanda’s story in the Front Porch Promises series. The characters take the reader from Montana to Massachusetts, then Tennessee, where the series includes Amanda’s younger sister, Kelsey.
In A Match to Call Ours the hero’s twin daughters are based on my memories of my fourth grade friend Rose. She belonged to the Crow Tribe and had long dark braids just like the twins in the story. I remember the snowstorms and having fun in the snow, sledding, and making snowballs. I got to put those memories to use in the story.
Because I’m what they call an organic writer, I don’t plot my stories. I start writing and see how things unfold. I’m always thankful that somehow God brings everything together when I write a book.
A Match to Call Ours is a Contemporary Christian Romance that is written by Merrillee Whren. I really enjoyed this book. I love this author's atyle of writing. Her stories are heartwarming, humorous and you're always drawn in within the first few pages.
Brittany Gorman moves to be with her boyfriend, then they break up. So then she accepts a job watching Parker Watson's 6 year old adopted twins. Parker has a lot of bitterness and hurt bottled up. He stays on his Montana ranch. The town he lives in, has their minds made up about him. They have judged him for a crime he did not commit.
Brittany notices that Parker is very withdrawn and has fallen away from his relationship with God. She notices that the twins are not able to go many places because of this. I just loved the way the author built these characters. Their chemistry, their relationship, their traits, it was all perfect. I love how Brittany was patient and kept planting the seed to for Parker to open his heart to Jesus. The story is well written. The characters are well developed. This is sweet story. Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
