Anna Meets Her Match (2009) by Arlene James (Love Inspired)
This is a really nice book which I enjoyed a lot. Anna was a wonderful person who was dealing with her life as best she could. However she actually made a few things harder for herself as she was cutting off her nose to spite her face (as the saying goes). Reeves was also a very wonderful and caring person. When he meets Anna again all he remembers were the surface commotions she had always caused. As he gets to know her a bit better th

Christian romance. First in a series. Three maiden aunts matchmaking for their nephew.

This was my first Christian fiction book that I have ever read.

The story of a brewing relationship between two people that thought they were unlikely for each other building a relationship with each other and God.

Truly a good read, but since the beginning I already knew that it'd have the fairytale ending for Reeves and Anna. I found Gilli to be very cute. The mother, Marissa, though ... she was something else!

I don't usually read or finish romances of any sort, let alone inspirational romances, but this was well written and I really enjoyed it. I didn't find it to be too preachy, though I did think it was kind of a stretch that the grandmother and granddaughter had such a poor relationship and that neither one, despite being Christian, was able to if not mend the relationship, at least communicate a little better. Again, not a bad book and glad I picked it up.

Just EH! Kinda had a hard time getting into this one. The love story was good...If they'd concentrated MORE on Reeves and Anna Miranda's LOVE STORY then the Aunts and Grandma!...Gilli was ADORABLE with her kitty 'SPECIAL', who ONLY liked the little girl LOL!

This is a really good book, it is well written although it does kind of start out kind of blah. Anna's story draws you in and little Gilli is so adorable. Over all really good and worth the time to read.
I don't know if I didn't enjoy this book as much because it was all about a man in search of romance rather then a women or just a so so story. It is a clean Christian book but not the best of the Love Inspired series.

I was reading some of the later books in this series when I realized I owned the first one, so I went back and read it -- I have to admit, it wasn't as good as some of the later ones, but I still like the characters and want to keep reading the rest of the Chatham House books.

-A house infected by bees is a recipe for disaster, as this book shows. An ok book.

Anna Miranda and Reeves Leland meet again after ten years, a broken marriage and a daughter Gilli. Can the brat really be the one for Reeves?

I thought this book was awesome. I loved the prayer and the faith of a young man that was looking to God for help and to please Him. What a great book. Hope there is more like this one.

3.7 stars because at first i wasn't sure of reeves' game plan and his feelings about anna and if he actually loved her or just wanted her as a mom for gilli.
