My Thoughts: 

As a whole this collection was FAN-TAS-TIC. With a variety of authors compiled together in one book, it’s common to like some and dislike others. A Match Made in Texas stands out as one of my favorite collections since every last novella was a hit with me.

A Cowboy Unmatched was a great conclusion to the Archer brother stories. I loved it as much as I had loved the previous two.

An Unforeseen Match goes down in history as one of my absolute favorite novellas. I loved Grace and Clayton and the hardships they faced only endeared them to me even more.

No Match for Love hooked me from page one. It was a short but enjoyable read.

Meeting Her Match was another sweet, sweet novella. I really liked Mark since he reminded me of my own shy husband.

Rating and Recommendation: I’m giving A Match Made in Texas 5 stars and recommending it to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction.
