TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-SATURDAY – BOOK REVIEW – A MATCH FOR EMMA by PEPPER BASHAM

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour & Giveaway for A Match for Emma by Pepper Basham, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: A Match for Emma
Author: Pepper Basham
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 21, 2019

 

THE BLURB

Emma Mitchell may enjoy sprinkling romance into the lives of others, but her own plans involve a single first-class ticket to culinary school in Europe.

When her best friend, Jon Noble, suddenly moves back to Ransom, Emma’s fairly certain her life can’t get any better…until her matchmaking schemes nosedive, her culinary future falls flat, and a life-long friendship begins to teeter on the brink of something unexpected.

With a little inspiration from Jane Austen’s classic and a touch of Blue Ridge charm, will Jon and Emma discover that what they need the most may be the last thing they’re trying to find?

MY REVIEW

Pepper Basham never fails to disappoint! The #QueenofSwoony delivers kissable characters and tantalizing kisses. #allthekisses Her love for the Blue Ridge Mountains shines all throughout the story with lovely and vibrant descriptions, inviting the reader to visit via the pages of the story.

Of course it’s human nature but don’t you just want to clobber people, fictional or otherwise, when they can’t see what’s good for them right in front of them plain as the nose on their face?

Such was the case with both Emma and Jon.

Emma’s efforts were all well intended, but sometimes the best laid plans fall far short. Mice and men and all that! It crushed me that Emma felt herself a failure—a sentiment this reader once knew far too well. Ms. Basham takes Emma on a rigorous heart journey to discover her own worth.

Jon, too, comes face to face with a grief he thought was buried.

Ms. Basham has a magical way with words, casting a story-spell that brings the story to life and invites the reader right into the midst of the action. Personally, I could go for one or ten of those swoony kisses!
