Kate has sworn off dating, not that she hasn’t given it a good college try. After one hundred failed dates looking for Mr. Right and on more than one occasion surrendering her potential life partner to their “soul mate” literally mid-date, she feels deserving of a break. Besides she doesn’t need another man in her life when she has Robert, her special needs canine.
In charming Verily, New York, Kate Seymour has a smashing success with Kinnections, the matchmaking service she owns with her two best girlfriends.
But Kate’s more than a savvy businesswoman: She’s gifted with a secret power, a jolting touch that signals when love’s magic is at work. It rocked her when she picked up a strange volume of love spells in the town’s used bookstore . . . and it zapped her again when she encountered Slade Montgomery, the hot-tempered—and hot-bodied— divorce lawyer who storms into Kinnections demanding proof that playing Cupid won’t destroy his vulnerable sister, Kate’s newest client.
The only way to convince this cynic that she’s no fraud, and that love is no mirage, is for Kate to meet his audacious challenge: find him his dream woman. Can Kate keep their relationship strictly business when her electrifying attraction nearly knocked her off her feet? Or has the matchmaker finally met her match?
Slade doesn’t believe in love, he sees evidence of its fragility everyday in his work as a litigator. When his emotionally vulnerable sister decides that she is not only moving out but signing up with a matchmaking agency. Slade feels he has no choice but to thwart her plans anyway he can.
Icy blonde Kate couldn’t be more different than Slade’s celebrity crush Zooey Deschanel but generations of women in Kate’s family have been blessed/cursed with the ability to recognize their one and only true love. Fate be damned Kate refuses to accept that someone so seemingly unsuitable could be her soul-mate that is until he kisses her.
“I don’t negotiate with terrorists, Mr. Montgomery. This includes bullying divorce lawyers who think their God.”
Jennifer Probst meticulously created an electric believable connection between Kate and Slade. The by-play between these characters was intelligent and witty, the supporting characters were intriguing and layered within this straightforward romance is the unwavering belief in love’s ability to prevail, be it within families, friends or even with your pet. Searching for Someday was my first foray into Ms Probst’s writing but it won’t be my last.
