Celia is in desperate need of a change–a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon’s Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She’s wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters?

What Celia doesn’t plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia’s past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.

Although part of the POWER OF THE MATCHMAKER series, a multi-author project featuring the recurring character of Pearl the matchmaker, this book is a STAND-ALONE novel.

    This was such a sweet, heartbreaking and yet hopeful story. Both characters have been through some really tragic things in their past and they are both a little shy and hesitant to trust. I loved watching their relationship develop and especially seeing Silas work at overcoming some of his shyness. So sweet! I thought the matchmaker’s involvement was just right — she was not an integral part of the story but without her, Silas and his aunt would probably not have helped Celia like they did. And I thought the ending was just perfect!

    This was such a sweet story. The writing was also really good. I felt pain and hope for these characters and my heart broke one too many times throughout this process. I fell in love with these characters and I felt like they were real. Very real. It was all just so cute! Loved it!

    This is the first book in the Power of the Matchmaker series. One book will come out each month in 2016. They are all stand alone books, but feature the matchmaker, Pearl. There is a prequel that tells Pearl’s story and how she became the matchmaker. Although you don’t need to read it to enjoy the series, I was really glad I had. I just love Pearl! I’m looking forward to seeing how she gets each couple together in the series. I didn’t know what her part in the stories would be. She really just got them together, set up a few things to make sure they continued their journey, and then left them to their story.

    In “Broken Things to Mend,” Celia and Silas are brought together by Pearl. Both are such good people! Celia has had a rough life. Her heart is guarded, but it is tender and kind. Silas has also had hard things happen in his life. He is so full of goodness. He is somewhat reserved, but soon finds himself drawn to Celia and wanting to help her. It was great to watch Silas become more comfortable around Celia. Without even knowing, he helped restore her trust in men. They went through some difficult things, but came together so perfectly. I loved the ending!

    This was a great book! I’m really excited for the rest of the series! I know the books are written by different authors, but I have a feeling they are all going to be really good!!

    I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
