She's the One by Kim Boykin

Melissa Bliss has built her real estate and property management company in the idyllic community of Isle of the Palms, SC where she works with sexy contractor Shane Carver. Her newest client is socialite Savannah Sinclair, who is renting a townhome out in Mermaid Cove. 

Melissa has inherited the matchmaking skills handed down from her grandmother and sets out to pair Savannah with Shane in hopes of helping Savannah get over her ex-husband, who she still desperately loves. Shane, however, has had his eyes set on Melissa for some time and won’t settle for less. 

With both Shane’s ex-fiance back on the Island and a blues rocker who shows an interest in Melissa, Shane has his work cut out for him. But the biggest hurdle may just be Melissa’s matchmaking legacy, which dictates that the matchmaker must not make a match for herself or she will lose her abilities.

Boykin (Flirting With Forever) paints a picturesque tropical locale that will draw readers into her characters just as much as the Lowcountry scenery. Romance is limited to kisses; there is nothing gratuitously sexy here, so readers of Sherryl Woods’ Ocean Breeze series would find Boykin to be an excellent match.
