"Engaging amusing contemporary romance"
In New York, to shut up her nosy neighbor "Yenta",
Kathryn "Kitty" Lamb agrees to try the woman's matchmaking
service. At Six in the City, Kitty meets Walker "Bear"
Hart, a successful financial guru, who is filling in for
his mother Yenta as she travels in Wales on her latest
honeymoon. Bear and Kitty are immediately attracted to one
another especially their shared warped sense of humor, but
she wants love and marriage while he avoids commitment.
Kitty begins dating the men that Bear provides to her, but
none seem to compare with her host. He, in turn, is
jealous of each date he arranges for Kitty. However,
though he wants her, Bear knows that relationships are
fleeting as he learned observing his mother. Kitty knows
who her true match is, but expects to miss out on the love
of a lifetime because he cannot escape the lessons of a
MISS MATCH is an engaging amusing contemporary romance
that contains a serious undertone on what parents leave
with their children including those grown up. The story
line is fun due to the lead couple's reactions to one
another and the antics of the five dates. Though done many
times before, readers will enjoy Kitty's trip through the
looking glass of singles dating in Manhattan because Leslie
Carroll uses the eccentric cast to provide freshness to the
scene. The ensemble thoroughly entertains the audience.

High school drama teacher Kathryn Lamb, at the insistence
of a pushy neighbor, enrolls with Six and the City, a
dating service that guarantees her five fix-ups with
eligible bachelors, all of whom are ostensibly interested
in commitment. But from the second she meets Walker "Bear"
Hart, the hunky manager of the matchmaking service, sparks
fly and sexual tension crackles. The problem is that
Kathryn has come to Six in the City to find a husband.
Bear has never seen a happy marriage in his life. His
mother, the oft-married actual owner of Six in the City,
keeps fixing herself up with her own clients and jetting
off on honeymoons. And Bear finds nothing more depressing
than matching up desperate singles. But his attraction to
Kathryn makes him begin to question his firm conviction to
remain a bachelor forever. And it's his job to find her
five other possible husbands. Keeping his jealousy in check
is nearly impossible.
Bear matches Kathryn up with an assortment of eligibles: a
bad boy rock 'n' roller, an undercover narcotics detective,
a Very Famous Actor, a high school English teacher, and an
airline pilot. Any time things go dizzily wrong, guess
who's there to rescue her?
