Love is in the stars for a matchmaker and her astronomer best friend in the latest installment of Wilde's (Cowboy, It's Cold Outside, 2017, etc.) Cupid, Texas series.
After her divorce, Ember Alzate moves back to Cupid, Texas, where her matchmaking skills are put to the test. Ranger Lockhart, her handsome best friend, is up for a promotion at the observatory, and she thinks the best way to help him is to find him a smooth-talking wife to help him with the fundraising part of the job. But she can’t seem to find anyone who's a good match. It’s easy to see where this is going, but Ember is under a lot of pressure. According to an old family legend, she’ll hear a humming sound when she kisses her true love. So far, she’s kissed just about everyone but Ranger. If she kisses him and hears silence, her long-held fantasy that he’s her soul mate will be ruined. The tension builds as Ember sets Ranger up with dates against her own best interest, for who could resist a cowboy who is also a scientist? But Ranger thinks Ember is his perfect match. She might have been too outspoken, too impulsive, “too everything” for her ex, but to Ranger, Ember is just right. While Ranger bides his time, the spunky heroine throws out a lot of cute one-liners—“That’s not the best idea in the West” —and hopes she can rope him in before someone else does.
Wilde presents compelling evidence that love can make a person see stars and hear wedding bells with a single kiss.
