In the fall of 1910, a violent patriarch with many enemies is murdered, freeing his long-suffering wife and four misfit children. Can a secret matchmaking plan find love for the eccentric members of the Tutheridge family?
The four Tutheridge siblings grew up under the savage dictatorship of their wealthy and powerful father. Isolated on a small island in the Puget Sound, his three sons and daughter have little hope for finding love. Given their unique personalities and internal demons, romance seems unlikely. But when their mother secretly engages a team of matchmakers, hope blossoms for this lonely, slightly odd family.
As long as they don’t know they’re being matched, they just might get their happy ending.
However, when their father’s secrets are revealed in the weeks after his death, everyone becomes a murder suspect. Could one of them have snapped in a moment of rage? Or was it one of the many people he manipulated and hurt over the years that finally had enough?
And is it possible for love to grow in the wake of such darkness?
A murder mystery meets swoony historical romance in this new clean and wholesome series by bestselling author, Tess Thompson.
