Review of Four Chambers by Julie Wright (Power of the Matchmaker)

Four Chambers by Julie Wright (Power of the Matchmaker)
Clean Romance
Every time Andra Stone crosses paths with Everett Covington, trouble follows. First she loses her scholarship, then she loses the apartment she’d wanted more than anything. But tragedy hits hardest when she loses her grandmother—the best friend Andra has ever known. She determines that Everett is a talisman of ill fortune. When Everett comes to work in her hospital and is applying for the same position she’d been working toward since residency, Andra believes him to be her personal poltergeist.
The human heart has four chambers—four chances to get it right. Andra has only one chance left.

The Matchmaker Series is quickly becoming one of my favorite series! I absolutely adore Miss Pearl and each of the couples she brings together. Everett and Andra's story takes place over several years. Unfortunately, their path to finding true love is not straight, nor is it easy. At times I thought it should have been much easier than it was - but life has a way of throwing things in the path that cause distractions and detours.

Some of the things I LOVED - "Andrea without and E" and "Everest without an S"
-Red spray paint bouquet
- Grams!
- Andra's heart-shaped diamond necklace (sobs!)
- Nathaniel
-Hazel & Second Childhood <3
-Miss Pearl (of course!)

All those little obstacles and distractions that got in the way of Andra and Everett's relationship frustrated me, but I recognize them for what they are - necessary breaks for Andra and Everett to learn and grow. Andra needed the years of medical school and residency to not only mature, but to understand herself better. She needed to meet Everett's family to understand him more fully, and she needed to learn to appreciate the importance of social relationships. I think Everett needed to experience other relationships to know that Andra truly was "the one."

While the road was long and tangled, the "red string of fate" never broke. I love how the Chinese proverbs were sprinkled throughout and intertwined with their story. Another wonderful addition to The Matchmaker Series.
