This is my second book by the author and it left me wanting to read more of her stories. The book is full of realism, very nicely drawn characters and engaging writing. I am frankly surprised that the author is not known more widely (or maybe it's just me discovering her romances recently).The start of the story could be ripped from a headline: angry husband is accused of murdering his wife in a heat of an argument. The tragedy left the couple's six years old daughter temporary at the home of th ...more

Liked the premise but the execution didn't work for me. Linnea was a bit of a Mary Sue and really irritating, especially when she asked five times if her sister-in-law was really dead. Also, her name kept making me think of tinea, and you don't really want a heroine to make you think of a fungal disease. I didn't think much of Matt as a hero, either. I skimmed ahead and nothing really gained my attention to continue. The ending was sweet.

Maybe people will think I'm lowering myself to rate a Harlequin romance so highly. But I think people who work in libraries are kind of snobs about them. I'd forgotten how many I've read, and how much I've liked them! Simple, uncomplicated...but sometimes with a depth of understanding and insight!
Have been working my way through the Janice Kay Johnson back catalogue. This is my new favorite JKJ. Ugh. Had to put down the book a few times because I was crying so much I couldn't see the page. And to think: I'd put off reading it because the description didn't grab me as much as others. This is a keeper.

Now this storyline is really good. The two main characters interact over taking care of their niece who's father has killed the mother. Great charcter development of the aunt and her family. The uncle is supposed to be the 'bad' guy in the picture but what develops is a fascinating love story.

I actually liked this. They guy was relatable, the woman was a pet sitter(which I also am besides an author) and the ending read like a romantic comedy. Feel good book all around. Only problem is little girl is simply a plot device.

– What I good book! Johnson’s writing style is a little slower than most of the books I pick up but the characters are so vivid and the plotting is intricate enough to keep me turning the pages. Match Made in Court is a thoroughly good read. ~ Renee,

OK, so for what this is, it's not bad. Points for being well written. But kind of depressing. I like my fluff to be fluffier.
Janice Kay Johnson has never disappointed me. I just love the pacing of her books and she really knows how to tug on the heartstrings.

i really enjoyed this book. the hero and heroine fit well together. though the ending was predictable. heroine's low self esteem was the bane of their problem and the ending was funny.

Janice Kay Johnson is the author of sixty books for children and adults. Her first four published romance novels were coauthored with her mother, also a writer who has since published mysteries and children's books on her own. These were "sweet" romance novels, the author hastens to add; she isn't sure they'd have felt comfortable coauthoring passionate love scenes!

Janice graduated from Whitman Co
