You met star quarterback Kevin Tucker in This Heart of Mine. Now get ready to meet his shark of an agent, Heath Champion, and Annabelle Granger, the girl least likely to succeed.

Annabelle's endured dead-end jobs, a broken engagement . . . even her hair's a mess! But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.

Why does the wealthy, driven, and gorgeous sports agent Heath Champion need a matchmaker, especially a red-haired screw-up like Annabelle Granger? True, she's entertaining, and she does have a certain quirky appeal. But Heath is searching for the ultimate symbol of success -- the perfect wife. And to make an extraordinary match, he needs an extraordinary matchmaker, right?

Soon everyone in Chicago has a stake in the outcome, and a very big question: When the determined matchmaker promised she'd do anything to keep her star client happy . . . did she mean anything? If Annabelle isn't careful, she just might find herself going heart-to-heart with the toughest negotiator in town.

Annabelle Granger desperately needs an A-list client like sports agent Heath Champion to launch the matchmaking service she inherited from her grandmother. Luckily, she has an in with the Chicago Stars; unlucky for her, Heath already has a matchmaker. Annabelle doesn't let little details deter her. Phillips returns to her Chicago football world, bringing back Phoebe Calebow in all her sharp and brilliant glory. Male characters play more than a supporting role here, and reader Anna Fields has a naturally deep voice that is up to the task, making Heath appealing despite his workaholic, one-track mind. She is less successful with Annabelle, who sounds too old and self-assured for the part. However, the subplot with alternative matchmaker Portia Powers almost steals the show, and Fields couldn't be more effective showing the brittle exterior masking deep-seated fear and longing. Not as brilliant as It Had To Be You, the story is still funny and fast-paced and recommended for public libraries.-Jodi L. Israel, MLS, Jamaica Plain, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Phillips's latest captivating romance (Ain't She Sweet; Breathing Room) follows a pair of reluctant lovers from their combative first acquaintance to a happily ever after. Perpetually discombobulated but adorable Annabelle Granger inherits her grandmother's matchmaking business, renames it Perfect for You and targets Chicago's super-rich, super-aggressive sports agent Heath Champion, better known as the Python, as her first client. Intrigued by this spunky, determined upstart, Heath-who is dead set on finding the ultimate trophy wife by age 35-agrees to give Annabelle a chance despite his contract with Portia Powers of Power Match. Soon Annabelle is introducing him to the Windy City's most extraordinary women, none of whom seem to meet Heath's discriminating standards. Could it be because chemistry has sparked between the matchmaker and her client? From trading barbs the two progress to exchanging kisses-and more. But when Heath finally meets his should-be dream girl and Annabelle's business threatens to go bellyup, they each must face their deepest feelings and make some difficult decisions in the name of love. Phillips has once again created a delightful page-turner. Agent, Steven Axelrod. (Aug.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
