WHAT WOULD MAKE YOUR CHRISTMAS PERFECT?
For Cassie Beaumont, it’s meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at thirty-three, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothing’s worked. Not blind dates, not the Internet and certainly not leaving love to chance.
What’s left? A professional matchmaker. He’s Simon Dodson, and he’s very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she’s astonished when he accepts her as a client.
Claiming he has her perfect mate in mind, Simon assigns her three tasks to complete before she meets him. Three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell ringer, dressing up as Santa’s elf at a children’s party and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it all — and she’s finally ready to meet her match.
But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise!
Cassie decides after some persuading from her coworker Angie to try a professional matchmaker. Simon Dodson puts her through three difficult tasks and is less than delicate with his remarks to after after meeting her. He’s rather blunt and straightforward. Cassie performs these tasks handling better than I think most would. They are all jobs to show her what she is capable of.
During the course of these tasks Cassie learns that she is falling in love with Simon. When she is done he tells her he’ll set up the date with her match. She doesn’t want her match she told him that he was her match.
It was a great story with Christmas themes and love mixed in. Definitely a great story!
