“The Irish Matchmaker” by Jennifer Deibel is a sweet Christian historical romance novel. I loved the setting of a rural Irish village in the early 1900s. Ms. Deibel excels in her knowledge of Ireland during that time and the dialect. I really felt like I was in Ireland with the rich historical details and her use of the beautiful language. There are a lot of fun Irish words and customs I enjoyed learning about as I read the story. It was especially fun to learn about matchmaking, as that is something I had not read much about before. The slow burn romance between Catríona and Donal is just too sweet for words. Who can resist the story of a single father looking for a mother for his child? Of course, Donal does not mean to fall in love. Catríona has eyes for someone else. Will they end up together? If you love sweet romance combined with fun history, you will love this story that is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day (and all year)!
Content: I give this book a PG rating. Some examples of the content are: drink is mentioned a few times; someone utters an oath under their breath, but the word is not written; someone speaks of having affairs and dallying with other women; there is a character who is a “player.”
I want to thank Revell and Jennifer Deibel for the complimentary copy of this book for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I express in this review are my own.
