Macy Frost along with a couple of her friends have opened up at matchmaking service at Two Love Lane and the ladies take their job seriously. Vowing that there is someone out there for everyone Macy is proud of her track record at the agency so far with many successful pairings. When Deacon Banks walks into Two Love Lane and Macy’s office she’s a bit taken aback when he insists he’s not looking for love but only a few dates while he’s in town to pass the time.
Macy is a bit curious about Deacon and as much as she doesn’t want to admit even a bit attracted to him and his Yankee accent. However Macy doesn’t mix her business and pleasure and even though Deacon says he isn’t looking seriously she thinks she can still find the perfect woman for Deacon and change his mind. The more Macy insists she can help Deacon the more interested he becomes in her himself so he takes her up on her offer to find his mate just to spend more time with the matchmaker herself.
Christmas at Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer is of course a contemporary romance read that takes place during the Christmas holidays and seems to be opening up a new series featuring the ladies of Two Love Lane with more books upcoming in the future. This story seemed to be one that really has a very slow build and pace to it which isn’t necessarily bad but I tend to prefer a bit quicker myself. There’s a bit of added angst that didn’t really seem necessary since the controversy is set from the start with Macy not wanting to allow herself to fall for a client.
Overall though I did like the characters and set up in this one enough to enjoy the book even with the slower pacing. It could have possibly used a bit of a little extra unique Christmassy spark to make it stand out a bit too but there was enough celebrating along the way to give it that bit of feel good holiday vibe though. In the end I’d probably rate this one at 3.5 stars but those that enjoy a slower pace will probably rate higher than I have for this one.
