Format: Mass Market Paperback
Hurrah! Jane Graves is back to her excellent form in this brand-new book....well, brand-new except for the fact that we loyal readers were introduced to the heroine a few books ago and some of us (including this loyal reader) had written to Jane asking for Alison's story. Here it is and it's a doozy. Funny, warm, delightful plot, lots of empathy.....and some terrific zingers. I have to admit that I wasn't a fan of Bernadette and Jeremy in "Black Ties and Lullabies"; they were neither likable nor believable. In this one, we have three-dimensional, conflicted but very likable hero and heroine. And, as a plus, Heather and Tony (from "Tall Tales and Wedding Veils") are back to play supporting roles.

I should mention that this book obviously takes place today, more or less. There are many references to the drop in the housing market, slow-down of real estate development and other current matters. I liked that as it anchored the book in the here and now. The matchmaking elements of the plot also refer to the real organizations that do this and that, too, makes it feel more real. This is not to say that Jane hasn't used prodigious amounts of creativity; she has, and the book is all the better for both reality and originality.

Highly recommended if you like your romance books with more depth, lots of humor and excellent writing.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Heartstrings and Diamond Rings begins with Alison Carter on a date with her boyfriend of 8 months. She is sure he is going to pop the question and he does. Unfortunately, the question is would Alison be willing to do a threesome with some bimbo they both know. Right off the bat we know Alison has baaaad luck with men. She is looking for Mr. Forever, the white picket fence, and a pack of children.
Brandon Scott has inherited his grandmother's matchmaking business and life use of her house. He usually is a real estate developer, but the economy has wiped him out and he's laying low, trying to get enough capital together to work on another deal. He is NOT looking for a permanent relationship.
Through a variety of circumstances, Alison becomes the new businesses first client. The story starts with a bang and continues moving along to the very end. Brendon learns the matchmaking trade slowly but surely with help from Alison. The descriptions of her first few dates are hilarious and each new experience helps Brandon hone his skills. Both of them learn to see what it is that they really want in life and what they need to do to get their heart's desire. They have well-meaning buttinsky friends who help them along the way.
This book has romance, humor and some heart tugging parts to it. The dates are a little over the top but enjoyable and the book is a good read. Both of the main characters are likeable and sympathetic, even when they may be doing something not so nice. When the book is done, you feel satisfied. Ms. Graves has another winner to add to her list. I recommend reading her earlier books as well-all are enjoyable.

What a completely wonderful book! Alison Carter is a realistic representation of every woman, in that she's not a perfect size 2, she goes on a LOT of bad (hilarious) dates, drives a Toyota, and has a regular job. She's not being chased by bad guys, she's not an heiress with no concern for money, and she's not a brilliant scientist with evidence that could put away the mob. She drinks too much occasionally (don't we all!) and then deals with the hangover, she's been friends with the same person since junior high, and her father is a pain in the butt. What makes Alison such a wonderful character, in my opinion, is her ability to fall off the horse again and again and get back up - again and again, each time with a renewed sense of optimism. Alison believes the best in everyone. As much as it hurt my heart each time hers was broken, it made me wish I could be a little more like her.

Brandon is also a very realistic character; he's no millionaire with secret James Bond-like abilities who will swoop in at the last minute and save the girl. He's a good-looking guy, a hard worker with a hard past, he's been affected (like all of us) by the bad economy, and he has a plan to make some quick cash to finance his next real estate deal. His plan is a little flawed (a guy running a matchmaking service??), but it's a good plan - until he meets Alison. Brandon's repeated attempts to set her up with Mr. Right made me laugh out loud. Alison's recaps of her dates were just priceless!

Heartstrings and Diamond Rings was well worth the price and the time spent reading it.

I need another Jane Graves novel - fast!

I hate to be the only one not praising this book but this was only a mediocre story. I just never warmed up to Brandon, the lead male character. The only thing he seemed to offer was his good looks. I can't see what Alison saw to make her fall in love with this guy. The whole idea of Brandon making quick money on running his Grandmother's matchmaking business just didn't work for me. I understand Alison wanting to find her "soul mate" but this was all there was to her. Both of the lead characters seemed one dimensional. There's just no depth to this story.
