    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 lifetime.

    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.
