Brittany Gorman needs a job, but nanny to six-year-old twin girls isn’t exactly what she’s looking for. Their single father, Parker Watson, isn’t sure hiring Brittany is the right move, but he’s desperate for help.
Soon Brittany is charming the twins and their father as well. But Parker still clings to the bitterness of his past, a past that has made him a recluse on his isolated Montana ranch, distanced him from God, and kept him from finding love.
Can Brittany’s prayers and two little matchmakers soften Parker’s heart and help him find love with his perfect Montana match?

More from Merrillee
One of my writing goals is to set at least one book in every state in which I have lived. So far I have written books set in Washington State, Texas, Florida, South Dakota, Georgia, Ohio, Montana, Massachusetts, and Tennessee. I still have to write books set in Illinois and Arizona to complete my goal. Just for fun I’ve gone astray and have written a couple of Christmas novellas set in Maryland, where my older daughter lives. I’m currently working on the third book in that series.
A Match to Call Ours is my Montana book. I lived there when I was a little girl. We lived near Billings from the time I was four until I was ten, when we moved to South Dakota. So as you can imagine my memories are vague, but I’ve visited Montana numerous times as an adult.
Brittany Gorman, the heroine of the book, is originally from Washington State, and if you read my Pinecrest series, you first meet her as a teenager in Second Chance Gift. I have three teenagers in that series, and I wanted to write their adult stories. Brittany’s story comes first, followed by Max’s story, then Amanda’s story in the Front Porch Promises series. The characters take the reader from Montana to Massachusetts, then Tennessee, where the series includes Amanda’s younger sister, Kelsey.
In A Match to Call Ours the hero’s twin daughters are based on my memories of my fourth grade friend Rose. She belonged to the Crow Tribe and had long dark braids just like the twins in the story. I remember the snowstorms and having fun in the snow, sledding, and making snowballs. I got to put those memories to use in the story.
Because I’m what they call an organic writer, I don’t plot my stories. I start writing and see how things unfold. I’m always thankful that somehow God brings everything together when I write a book.
My Review of A Match to Call Ours:
This book drew me in with the back cover description and the cover. But, the writing of Merrillee Wren kept me reading. I truly enjoyed not just Brittany but her sassy roommate Heather. And while, I think, readers weren’t supposed to be drawn to Parker due to his past and defensive stance at times, I thoroughly loved how the author showed his vulnerable, soft side while he tried to keep people at a distance. Throwing in the 6-year-old twins (I love reading books with children involved) made it an amazing story that kept my attention and wanted me to read the rest of the series. So glad I was introduced to this author and can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
I received a complimentary copy of this book but was under no obligation to review it. All opinions are mine.

Good book for Summer reading.
Thanks for the contest.
Thank you so much for sharing. God bless you.
This sounds like a great book. Thank you for your review.
After Cheri’s comment about Parker, I am even more intrigued by his character. I know the couple is supposed to be the stars of the story, so to speak, but I always seem to enjoy the scenes with the children the most.
Thank you for sharing your lovely review of A Match to Call Ours, this sounds like a wonderful story and I am looking forward to reading it myself
