Description

What would make your Christmas perfect?
For Cassie Beaumont, it's meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at thirty-three, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothing's worked. Not blind dates, not the internet and certainly not leaving love to chance.
What other options are there? Wellshe could hire a professional matchmaker. Simon Dodson has quite a reputation, but he's very choosy about the clients he takes onand very expensive. Cassie considers him a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she's astonished when he accepts her as a client.
Claiming he has her perfect mate in mind, Simon assigns her three tasks to complete before she meets this paragon. Three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell-ringer, dressing up as Santa's elf at a mall and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (most of whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it alland then she's finally ready to meet her match.
But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise
