The Matchup

The last thing Valerie wants or needs is to work for Gage, whom she loathed as a teen. But Valerie’s husband just walked out on her and she needs the job. Together they discover that when it comes to the Church and each other, it’s all about second chances. This sweet LDS romance will renew your faith in love and redemption.

My thoughts: I was surprised just how much I enjoyed this story! Laura does an excellent job of bringing to life her characters and their stories. Both Gage and Valerie have been burned by the choices they have made since they last saw each other. When the opportunity comes for them to be a blessing to one another, Valerie is unsure if she wants to work closely with her childhood tormentor. Not only is this a great story of people changing, but I also thought the author did a wonderful job of writing Valerie's son, Justin, who has autism, showing the struggles and triumphs of raising a child with autism.
I received this book from Cedar Fort in exchange for my honest review.


  1. Aw, this one sounds really cute. Plus, that cover!? So adorbs. :)

    1. Isn't the cover darling? I love that the puzzle pieces tie into the Autism part of the story.
