From the Power of the Matchmaker series: LOVE IS COME

Nelle Thompson lives a life of privilege during the turn of the century New York City. When her parents are killed in a terrible accident, she’s forced to live with her aunt’s family in a small town in Connecticut, and treated as a poor relation with no financial independence. Broken hearted and riddled with insomnia, Nelle’s health begins a downward spiral. When a locked part of her heart blossoms around her cousin’s fiancĂ© Mathew Janson, Nelle doesn’t know if she can endure one more heartbreak. Miss Pearl, owner of the local apothecary shop, becomes a mother figure to Nelle, but a fateful summer day has Nelle questioning everything she's ever believed and wondering if she’ll ever love again.
My Review: 5 Stars
This series is great! Each story is written by a different author, with only a minor shared character. Each can stand alone.
Nelle is a great character with real feelings. She lives in New York City during the Victorian period and has an easy life. An accident leaves her orphaned and she goes to a rural town to live with her aunt until she's of age to receive her inheritance. While there, she makes a connection with her cousin's fiance, Mathew, but that relationship is off limits.
Nelle is a very gentle, peaceful soul. She has an easy way of adapting to her situations and making the best of things, easing the burdens of those around her. Even when she's in the depths of despair and treated badly, she's still very kind. I love the way she forms bonds and relationships with the most unlikely people. Mathew is a man of his word and although the sparks fly between him and Nelle, he just can't go back on his word to her cousin, Alice. I love characters of good integrity with strong values.  

I love the feelings that I felt while reading this book. The times are simpler, in some ways, than they are today. There were situations when my heart nearly broke for Nelle and times of great joy. The events and feel good moments left me on a reader's high. I always wonder where and how Pearl, the matchmaker, will show up next.

Content: mild romance (talk of cheating with vague immoral implications); very mild violence (vague talk of death). Clean!
