Review: Love Remains by Kaye Dacus

Title:  Love Remains
Author:  Kaye Dacus
Genre:  Contemporary Romance, Inspirational
Published:  August 2010
ISBN:  1602609896
Publisher:  Barbour Books


Every grandmother wants to see her grandchildren happy, especially when it comes to their love lives. Join five active senior ladies—and one gentleman—who take a great interest in the lives and loves of their single grandchildren and become The Matchmakers. 

Zarah Mitchell and Bobby Patterson become the first focus of meddling grandmothers when he moves back to Nashville to work for the Tennessee Criminal Investigations Unit. Will Zarah be able to forgive the man who years ago chose a military career over her—especially when she learns he is investigating the historic preservation agency for which she works.
14 years have passed since Zarah has seen Bobby Patterson - since Bobby broke her heart.  Or so she thought!  After overcoming the initial shock of seeing Bobby show up at a singles mixer for her/now their church she has to come to terms with her feelings about her first love.

The story opens with a group of friends discussing their grandchildren and how these said grandchildren are not co-operating on the marriage & great grandchildren front.  They come up with a plan to change that situation - and become "The Matchmakers".

Little do Zarah and Bobby know - they are the first victims of their grandparents matchmaking skills!

Bobby has moved back to his hometown after being away for many years with his military career.  He has taken a job with the TCIU investigating fraud.  One of his first assignments is the Historical Preservation Society that Zarah works for!

I love the chemistry between Bobby and Zarah.  They are so deeply in love with one another - but won't or can't admit to it.  They have many obstacles to overcome - including Zarah's father.  

This story has a bit of everything - love, mystery, intrigue and laughter.  I love how Kaye Dacus incorporates all these into one fabulous story!   I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the Matchmakers Series!

I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves Contemporary with a hint of mystery/suspense and Inspirational romance!
