Publisher's Summary

Be prepared to smile, swoon, and sigh in Christi Caldwell's latest Heart of a Scandal installment where a matchmaker firmly on the shelf is about to fall head over heels for her best friend's younger brother.

She lived by a strict set of rules....

Meredith Durant believes those who won’t marry, matchmake, and she’s made a notable career for herself helping young women find the perfect mate. Having suffered a broken heart years before, she’s quite content in her work and determined to never fall prey to love again. Her most recent job finds her working for the unlikeliest of households, never expecting her assignment would be her best friend's younger brother, Barry - who's not so little anymore. He’s a grown man who leaves her breathless and wishing just maybe this time she could have a happy ending. But how can that happen when, once her job is done, she must watch him wed another?
 

He's decided to break her rules:

Barry Aberdeen, the future Duke of Gayle, knew his days of freedom were numbered. With his sister recently married, his mother turned her marital aspirations to him. She’s even gone as far as to hire a matchmaker. Worse, the matchmaker is a childhood friend - Meredith Durant. Only the rigid, serious creature is not the carefree girl he remembered. If he’s going to be saddled with a matchmaker, he’s going to have fun loosening Meredith’s too-tight chignon. What he doesn’t expect is how entranced he’ll be when those strands come falling down around her shoulders.

Too young until we are not....

When Barry and Meredith shared a token of a loving friendship that would last forever, I knew they were a match for the future. I admit I was surprised at the twist that happened at the end. I would have loved to have found an epilogue. I wasn’t quiet ready for the book to end.

Love always finds a way

After some dark, heavy books from Christi Caldwell she delights us with a lighthearted, feel good book. We first meet Barry, younger brother to Emilia, in A Lady’s Guide to a Gentleman’s Heart, where we get a glimpse of this charming mischievous rogue who defends his older sister like a true gentleman. Meredith is first seen In Need of a Knight, one of Aldora’s childhood friends, who has also know Barry since he was a baby. Inevitably life happens and Meredith moves away, eventually having to make her way in the world alone. Until a chance meeting with a handsome, charming rogue she knew as a boy, Barry. The Duchess of Gayle is determined to see her son married & settled organizes her usual summer house party with a twist. Meredith a well known Matchmaker reluctantly takes the job offered by the Duchess. As you can imagine mischief & fun ensues when Barry finds out why she is there. He makes a deal with Meredith and through their time spend together she learns to enjoy life again and together they fall in love. This was such an enjoyable read, Christi’s characters touch your heart and you root for them to get their Happy Ever After. She writes from the heart. I cannot recommend this book enough, you don’t have to have read any of her books before this could be your first but be warned you will want to read her others after this. As always Tim Campbell’s performance is superb. He makes the books he narrates come alive, I could listen to his voice all day. He is a first rate narrator, best one I ha e listened to

Barry will steal your heart!

This sweet story takes us back to one of the Original 5 HOD girls. We catch up with Emilia and discover secrets held. Christi has the ability to make you fall in love with every hero and heroine. Tim brings the characters to life and transports you to another time. They make the best combo!

Love this story

I always love Christi Caldwell stories and she has again delivered a wonderful story full of great characters and a fun storyline. There are moments of great emotional turmoil but they add strength to the story. Tim Campbell, as always, delivers a great performance which adds depth to the story keeping you riveted the entire time. Love it, love it, love it!

Lovely slow boil

I really enjoyed how Caldwell developed this story and slowly revealed Barry and Meredith’s relationship. I typically prefer a story that ends on a high rather that inject lots of contrived conflict that keeps characters apart throughout. So I loved this. Christi did an excellent job of keeping tensions at a steadily increasing pace until it broke. I especially liked the last minute reveal of Barry’s... which looking back was very subtly hinted at. This is the first audiobook I’ve listened to by her, ergo the first time I’ve listened to Tim Campbell. I’m so happy because I really have trouble with anyone that isn’t Justine Eyre, Alex Wyndham and Mary Jane Wells. It means I constantly run out of listening material. So.... I’m very pleased to say Campbell is an excellent narrator. Male and female voices are spot on and I’m very much looking forward to listening to the Caldwell/Campbell mass of collaborations. Beautiful story,
