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.
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!
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.
Brandon Scott wants none of the above; he is looking to make his next fortune not make a great match. But for Brandon the housing market has crashed and it took Brandon's home-flipping career with it. There is an opportunity for him to recoup his losses with the matchmaking business his grandmother left him in her will. Brandon has to stay in the house to keep it and run her matchmaking business instead of selling it all for a profit. Brandon figures he can live in the house and make money off the business so a matchmaker Brandon becomes. He figures it cannot be that difficult he knows about men obviously and he has dated enough women this should be a walk in the park.
As fate would have it this is how Alison the queen of bad dates is coerced into meeting Brandon the man looking to get some quick cash and put Plano, TX in his taillights. Alison has all the makings of a great date but Brandon has found that the men she is matched up with all have a secret they cannot wait to share with her which has nothing to do with long-term relationships or marriage and everything to do with gender confusion and emotional baggage, this woman is really a dating nightmare.
While Alison cannot get her dating life to work out she is doing a great job of helping Brandon perfect his business.Read more ›

Very good book with a great story. Couldn't put it down. Had to know what was next for Allison and if she would ever have the man she deserved. It's a hopeful bookPublished on March 11, 2013 by Brett
