The Art of Romance

Kaye Dacus' latest book, The Art of Romance, is set in Nashville, Tennessee. This is the second in her Matchmakers Series. It is a light-hearted, comical book about two grandmothers trying to set their grandchildren up to get married. They want to be the first in their circle of friends to have the first great-grandchild. That's where the humor begins and it doesn't stop through the whole book.

They go to great lengths to get their grandchildren married. Sassie Evans even has a kitchen remodel to have granddaughter, Caylor, meet a contractor. It seems he is only interested in his fantastic self.

Perty Bradly has an artist grandson, Dylan, who comes to live with her. He brings a lot of baggage with him. A lot of embarrassment from a former girlfriend.

The book is also filled with two girlfriends of Caylor's, Zarah and Flannery. All the main characters have a hand in getting the couple together, but there is something that makes them want to get together.

This book was one of the funniest I've read in a long time. I loved it, and I thank Kaye for writing it. It will be one of my favs.


  1. I'm smack-dab in the middle of "Art of Romance," and I am absolutely LOVING it! The "fantastic" contractor . . . LOLOL I say Sage deserves him!

  2. I loved it Regina. I can't wait to read the next one in the series of Ransom. Kaye is a very good author and a wonderful person. I didn't want to tell too much, so I held back on the ending.
