Arrange Me (The Arranged Duo, #1) by Katy Regnery

A Review by Wendy
3.5 Still Believing in The Dream Stars
* * * 1/2  
Spoiler Free
In today's world with "women doing it on their own", it is sometimes not the usual when an accomplished woman with a high powered career with no financial worries still wishing for the dream of a husband, a house in suburbia with a white picket fence, and those quoted 2.5 kids and minivan. Why would such a driven, savvy woman think this is the end all be all...

Well, she still believes in love, family and wants it to happen. She did all the dating of frogs, scammers, and idiots...
and after the final straw that broke the camel's back dating experience, she happens to see a promo for a new matchmaking reality series where the promise is exactly what her heart yearns... a marriage and life... the whole nine yards of HEA.

Now our gal does not live in a vacuum and she does have some people who are in her life all of the time.
One is this cool bartender she sees at least once a week. He is there at the bar where she goes to unwind. They are friends, share stories and little did either of them realize that over the year of chats, our bartender discovers he has real feelings for her.

When she shares her doing this and going balls to the wall with it...This is the tilt to thinking of exactly what she is doing.

Katy Regnery is a proven go-to author for me. I love how she crafts and her ability to capture moments. She took the idea of serious frustration with trying to find a partner in today's world and used another vehicle that would only be of today's world, Reality TV. She coupled it with the tried and true dream of having that picture perfect image of the marriage most of us have had drilled into our heads as little kids.

This is the set up to be finished in the next book. There is a cliffy as to what exactly will be the HEA... so I will have to wait 2 months to know. Thanks a lot, Katy.....

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Now exclusively self-published, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; the Enchanted Places Series; and a stand-alone novella, Frosted.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s boxed set, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times bestseller.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
