This may be the third book in a series but jump right in. Each book can stand alone so you won’t feel lost as you laugh your way through a slightly different romance. There is absolutely nothing normal about this hilarious story that has more twists and turns than you can count. The characters are awesome and totally unique. Mercy and Alden may be the main characters but you’ll fall in love with the reenactors, the previous owner of the manor house and Alden’s family. They all play a role and some have roles you don’t expect. Mercy and Alden are terrific characters and are superbly developed.
But this story is much more than just a comical romance. There is something shady going on but no one is exactly sure what and why. The answer is definitely modern day though it does have historical overtones. This is a book you will want to dive right in and not put down. I loved it and I love this series.
A definite must read if you like light, off the wall humorous romance.
Alden has bought a house to renovate for probable resale. He hopes to make money on this deal and plans to do as much of the work on the house by himself. His sister-in-law is sending him some help, whether he wants it or not. It’s kind of like a long blind date. Mercy accepts a job for a medieval reenactment company. When Alden finds her trudging up his drive, he is sure this is the woman his sister-in-law sent. Instead he learns that the reenactment company she is working for is holding their event in his garden!!! He wants them gone but the previous owner signed a contract with them. Things get worse as the previous owner won’t leave the house and potentially harmful things keep happening. Added to that, Alden and Mercy seem to be attracted to each other. What happens when the woman Alden is expecting turns up?
Chivalry is far from dead in the third novel in the “gut-wrenchingly funny”* Matchmaker in Wonderland Romance series.
Stranded in England without money or a ticket home, Mercy Starling takes a job working for a medieval reenactment company. After all, who wouldn’t want to pretend to live in the past, wield swords and long bows, and dress up in armor? And the best part of her summer job is Bestwood Hall...or rather, its intriguing new owner.
The painfully shy Alden Ainslie is overwhelmed by the medieval reenactors who invade the Tudor house he’s renovating, but he’s drawn to the bubbly Mercy. And he valiantly joins in the fun, dodging not just arrows, lances, and the odd sword thrust, but also some pretty suspicious—and potentially deadly—attacks on himself. Someone wants him to give up on the house. But Alden is desperate to prove himself—and win the heart of his lady fair...
