Sophie Mattis has earned her title as the best matchmaker in Corazon Grande through hard work and an unbeatable Formula for finding her clients love. Given the village’s reputation as the most romantic town in California, that’s no small boast. Sure, Sophie’s own heart has been broken in the past, but by sticking to her tried-and-true system, her clients get the love she can’t find for herself. Life in her new home would be pretty good, except for laid-back, irritatingly attractive local hero Evan Reid, her rival with a foolproof matchmaking system of his own.
When the townspeople approach Sophie and Evan with a huge matchmaking challenge, neither can resist the chance to shine and prove their method is superior. Trouble is, in order to show the value of romance to the town’s two resident grumps, Evan and Sophie must bury the hatchet and work together to make magic happen during Corazon Grande’s all-important holiday season.
As the matchmakers race against the clock in their task, their heated rivalry turns into undeniable chemistry, throwing everything off course. Will old wounds and unexpected new feelings stop them from accepting the greatest gift of all—love?
