His Ideal Match by Arlene James (Chatam House, #7)
Taming The Wanderer's Heart
Carissa Hopper's always been strong and self-sufficient. So when the single mom of three finds herself in need, accepting help from the rugged and adventurous Phillip Chatam isn't easy. She knows he's the kind of man she should stay far away from. Still, when his aunts offer her lodging at Chatam House, where Phillip also resides, Carissa can't refuse. Always on the move, Phillip has no interest in settling down. But as he gets to know Carissa's adorable children—and falls for their mother—he realizes that his biggest adventure will be convincing Carissa to let him be a part of her future.
Chatam House: Where three matchmaking aunts bring faith and love to life.
My Review:His Ideal Match by Arlene James (Chatam House, #7)
This is the first of the Chatam House series of books that I have read. I would love to some day go back and read the ones I have missed. I enjoyed reading this story. It had a bunch of fun characters, good plot, sweet kids and one not as sweet. Loving family, people that reach out and help because they care and can. Also had positive message, romance and was a clean read.
Carissa Hopper has had a rough few years. She is doing the best she can for her three kids after there father died. She has moved into her father's apartment after she lost her home and business. Her father is dying.
Carissa's Aunt and Uncle are willing to help her out. They work and live at Chatam House. Three triplet sisters live their and want to help Carissa and her kids too. In fact they offer to let them move into the house in a three bedroom suite.
Phillip Chatam is living with his three Aunts right now. He is in between jobs. He feels like he can't work at his old job climbing mountain guiding tourists after he lost two friends doing the same job. He has not yet found a job he wants to do next.
Carissa would think life is perfect except for her attraction for Phillip. She does not feel that anyone would ever marry her and be a father to her three children.
Phillip is attracted to Carissa but he never wanted to be a father but he wants to help her and realizes that he has taken life easy.
Both Carissa and Phillip go to grief counseling support group and it helps them. They also start going back to church and reading scriptures.
I like reading Arlene James and will read more of her books in the future.
I was given this ebook to read for the purpose of reviewing it. The opinions are all my own
