The Real Thing

Matchmaker Trilogy (Volume 1)

Barbara Delinsky

St. Martin's Griffin

The Real Thing is the first novel in beloved bestselling author Barbara Delinsky’s Matchmaker trilogy about two lost souls who find themselves stuck together on a remote island…

After breaking her leg, aerobics instructor Deirdre Joyce was fit company for no one. Especially not for equally disgruntled Neil Hersey, whose reputation as a lawyer had been unjustly tarnished. Craving solitude and healing, both Deirdre and Neil turned to their friend—and cagey matchmaker—Victoria Lesser, who owns property on a remote island. But once they’re stranded together off the coast of Maine, the two do nothing but fight…and fight…until they must fight off an attraction neither of them can deny…
