Nice Review for A Match Made in Texas

A Match Made in Texas
My book in this novella collection is Meeting Her Match. 
All About Books reviews all four stories.

A farcical, sweet story about two people aided on the path to true love, Meeting Her Match combines Mary Connealy’s trademark zaniness with two endearing, likable characters...a terrific little romance

Some Reviews for my single foray into Romantic Thrillers
5 Stars I'm serious...If you watch Criminal Minds, you'll love this book! It is a fast paced, well written thriller. The first chapter starts you on an psychological adventure of suspense & spiritual warefare
5 Stars Awesome Suspense and Romance Story--It is a fast paced, keep you guessing thriller that really has you on the edge of your seat to the end. This book grabbed my attention right away and kept it until the end.
5 Stars What an incredible book. Mary's westerns are so full of humor that I was really impressed at how different this book is from her others and yet so intriguing and a great story.
5 Stars This book was awesome. Days later and I still can't get it out of my head. This is a perfect Christian suspense for those of us who enjoy the thrillers without the steam or the gore.
5 Stars Riveting, Don't Look Away Suspense
5 Stars I didn't want to lay it down.

Every one of the few reviews I got is a 5 star except one and that 3 star review says this: An intense journey that brings suspense, detective, romance and a bit of scifi together in this creative read. I found myself immersed into the plot and as it reached the climax I was glued to the book wondering what would happen. Fans of detective novels will surely enjoy this read. Character development, dialogue and scenery worked and I was challenged in my faith. I would recommend this novel to others...

Not a single negative word! So, okay, I'll take the 3 Stars.    :)
