I’ve been reading books by Marie Ferrarella since the 1980s. Hers was a name I learned to associate many years ago with heartwarming stories peopled with characters I liked and the family contexts I appreciated. All these years later, these are the same qualities I still appreciate in Ferrarella’s books. Wish Upon a Matchmaker is a quick, sweet read with appealing characters.

Its a Harlequin, by Ferrarella which usually brings a sweet twist of humor.

Precocious 4 going on 40 daughter of leading man Stone Scarborough led the way to find a mommy. Proving the concept of networking we adults use so poorly.

Stone and Danni's story is sweet and enjoyable from their initial meetings while they try to figure out their impressions.
