An Unlikely Match

by Sarah M. Eden

Overall Book Review:

An Unlikely Match is a unique combination of medieval mystery and regency romance. Author Sarah M. Eden takes readers on a picturesque journey to nineteenth century Wales, where the dashingly handsome Nickolas has just had his dreams come true. Well…almost. Nickolas must deal with the ghost of his new residence, the strong-willed (and instantly likable) Gwen before he can marry the delicate Miss Casteton. Gwen’s ghostly point-of-view adds dimension and emotion to the story, and I couldn’t keep myself from trying to piece together the clues about her death. The novel’s climatic scene (and big reveal) delivers and I felt Eden provided a fantastic and satisfying ending.

About the Reviewer

My mother was the one who sparked my love of books. Long before school instruction, she sat me down and taught me to read. My childhood was filled with trips to the library and bookmobile to find great books. My first loves were The Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Pippi Longstocking series by Astrid Lingren. Now as a mom and speech pathologist, I am constantly looking for good, clean books to use at home and in therapy. I enjoy reading many different genres, but my favorites are usually historical fiction. I married my best friend, the “boy next door”, and we have a beautiful little girl who we often find sprawled out on the floor, flipping through picture books. Together our family likes to swim, run and play tennis. Besides reading, I also love to bake, garden and travel.
