They’ve been in love for ten years, but it takes an interfering neighbor with a penchant for poker to unravel the mystery of their persistent platonic relationship.
Flirtation can be an art, or so they say. Well, if so, Ruth and Richard are “the old masters” of the flirting game. Despite their strictly platonic relationship, there’s “something there,” as so many of their friends and families say. Neighbors and friends for ten years, neither seems willing to change the course of their relationship.
Three doors down, at the end of the cul-de-sac, Mason Dickenson has watched his favorite neighbors with an interested eye, but he’s finally had it with the dance. So, with a pack of cards and a few tricks up his sleeve, he’s determined to get them out of the “friend rut” and into romance.
Thanks to Mason’s unique matchmaking scheme, Ruth and Richard concoct one of their own—a deeper, stronger, eternal love and relationship that nothing on earth can match.

The Matchmakers of Holly Circle is written by one of my favorites Chautona Havig. This was such a fun book to read. You will find yourself lost in the story within the first few pages.
Richard and Ruth have been friends for ten years. Their relationship isn’t romantic. It’s a platonic relationship. They were so adorable to watch. Because you know they need to be together. Everybody sees how much they care for one another and how great they would be together.
Enter Mason Dickenson. He lives 3 doors down. He’s seen them dance around for too long and he sets his sites on getting them together. He challenges them to a poker game. The stakes? If he wins they go on a date. If they win he will listen to them talk about Jesus.
The book is so full of twists and turns. I wasn’t prepared for the ending. The author always writes such amazing scenery and descriptions you feel like you’re standing there watching everything unfold.
The characters are well written. The storyline is unique and engaging. I can’t wait until the next release. Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
