Broken Things to Mend by Karey White
Celia is in desperate need of a change--a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon's Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She's wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters? What Celia doesn't plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia's past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.
This book wasn't what I was expecting. It's the first book in the Power of the Matchmaker 12 book series, but is a stand alone novel. For some reason I thought it would be a fun, fluff read, with Pearl, the sweet, little matchmaker from Power of the Matchmaker making an appearance. But it wasn't a fluff read at all. It has some very serious subject matter. And it was really, really good. It hit a ton of different emotions. I laughed and cried and sympathized and hoped. Silas and Celia, bless their hearts, have both had really tough childhoods, both experiencing a lot more than their fair share of tragedy. This book is about taking that past heartache and helping each other heal.
