Heartstrings and Diamond Rings by Jane Graves

Alison Carter wants what her friends have a husband, children and a home of her own. Brandon Scott needs money fast. He has inherited his grandmother's house, as long as he wants to live there and her Matchmaking business. Alison thinks her boyfriend Randy is going to propose, instead he asks her if she would consider a threesome with one of her friends. She then decides that she has lousy taste and needs help finding a man. Alison makes an appointment with Brandon and enlists his help finding her soul mate. Brandon tries to match her with four guys. They look good on paper but none of them fit Alison's ideal man. That could be because she has fallen for Brandon but she does not know that he is not going to stick around. Brandon is out of there as soon as he makes enough money to invest in a real estate deal with his friend Tom.

Cute storyline with an inept matchmaker trying to find a sweet girl next door her ideal man. Somehow he stumbles upon mates for several clients, all except Alison. Several good minor characters including Alison's best friend Heather, her co-worker Lois and her father. Good chemistry between the main characters. There were no lags in the story at all, flowed well from beginning to end. It has a good balance between description and dialogue. This is a real feel good chick lit book and I highly recommend it. Jane Graves has become a new author for me to read.
