Adorably cute story about two opposites who fell for one another when they set about doing good deeds for others around town. #TeamSunshine.

Alex is a glass half-full pessimist, where as Willow is a glass half-full optimist and yet these two were drawn to each other from the first time they met. Their meddling meetups are adorable each and every time and it doesn’t take long for Willow to pull Alex out of his doldrums.

Alex came to town to escape his writer’s block and Willow came to town to heal her heart. These two shouldn’t work, but they are the perfect complementary partners for one another, the one thing stopping them…Alex is in town temporarily while he finishes his book and Willow’s heart…yeah, she doesn’t want to damage it any more than she has by mistakes in her past.

Willow is willing to fix anyone’s love life, except her own and once Alex catches on to this, he’s just willing to spend time in her company, hence #TeamSunshine is born. The name grows and more people get involved and soon t-shirts are made. It’s fun and adorable and what was supposed to be just between the two of them grows into acts of kindness and spreads optimism throughout the town.

Matchmaking Mischief is full of smalltown fun, friendship, good deeds, and falling in love. It is the perfect book to pick up that will fill you with optimism and lots of sunshine.


She’s a hopeless romantic…for everyone but herself. Can the least romantic man alive convince her love isn’t just for other people?


There are certain expectations when you’re born into a multigenerational family of matchmakers, which is why I fled my hometown and tried to build a life of my own.

But it turns out matchmaking is hard to quit, and I can’t stop trying to match the customers at the bakery I manage—including my boss and the tea shop owner next door—even though I’m hopeless at love.

So it seriously crimps my style when Alex Hunter starts coming around, working on his book at the bakery. He’s hot, grumpy, and thinks romance is a dirty word. Worse, he keeps distracting our customers.

He needs to go away. Which means someone needs to matchmake him.

And I’m just the girl for the job.


I’m a writer who can’t write, and lo and behold, I meet a matchmaker who’s allergic to love.

Me being me, I fall for her.

Most of the people in this town seem insane, but I have to turn my frown upside down and show Willow Mayberry that matchmakers deserve love too.
