Bestselling author Barbara Delinsky’s beloved Matchmaker trilogy is full of seduction, attraction, and sizzling romance. There’s Deidre Joyce, an aerobics instructor with a broken leg, who meets Neil Hersey, a disgruntled lawyer, in the first book in the series, The Real Thing. Crossword writer Leah Gates gets paired with an outdoor woodsman, Garrick Rodenheiser, in Crossed Hearts; and in The Invitation, Shaye Burke’s Caribbean vacation with her eccentric aunt might just turn into a chance for true love, when she meets Noah Vanbaar on the same boat. Delinsky’s contemporary romance series has been hailed by the Boston Globe, who deemed the author: “A first-rate storyteller who creates believable, sympathetic characters who seem as familiar as your neighbors.”
