The Husband List (Harbor Falls Romance, #9)
When Suzie Hart's success as the matchmaking chef hits the national foodie scene, her publicist produces a list of requirements totally unrelated to Suzie's newfound cooking show success. Interested more in Suzie's matchmaking talents, Patricia Plum presents, The Husband List.
Patricia Plum knows she's attracted to commitment-phobic men. Worse, they are attracted to her. Unlucky on her own in the couples department, she asks her new client for help. If Suzie Hart is as good as everyone claims, Patricia feels confident this hot new chef-turned-matchmaker will deliver the husband of her dreams. Just to move things along, Patricia presents Suzie with a specific list of husband requirements.
Ames Cooper is Patricia's commitment-phonic ex-boyfriend who screwed up royally in the past (both literally and figuratively) and watched her walk out of his life. He's a dozen years her junior and doesn't meet any of the requirements on her husband list because he's the exact opposite of every point on her list--not to mention the reason she compiled the list to begin with.
When photographer, Ames Cooper, steps into the photo shoot for Suzie's new cookbook and sees Patricia again, he realizes why his heart felt so empty these past three years. He regrets his past indiscretions and wonders how he can make things right with Patricia.
Will Patricia let him get close enough to prove he can be husband material, after all? And can matchmaker, Suzie Hart, really deliver Patricia's perfect mate to order?
