5.0 out of 5 stars Mamma Lou's up to her matchmaking tricks again!!! 16 Sep 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After matching up Madison and Tony in PRICELESS GIFT, Louise Gates, matriarch of the Gates family and known to all who love her as Mamma Lou sets her sights on marrying off her remaining grandson, Dr. Raymond Gates, jr., renowned plastic surgeon. But who would be a perfect match for Raymond who is a determined bachelor and has warned his overzealous grandmother to keep her matchmaking skills to herself? Keeping her eyes and ears open, the resourceful Mamma Lou overhears a conversation in the ladies' room when she's attending the theater. Finally, there's 'hope' for Raymond! Throwing her plan into action, Mamma Lou turns up in the emergency room of Golden Heart Medical Center where Dr. Hope Adams is the physician in charge. Raymond races to his grandmother's side and clashes with Hope when he throws his weight around. His reputation as a brilliant surgeon precedes him, but Hope is not impressed. She doesn't let him push her around, and Raymond appreciates that. They are instantly attracted to one another however, due to some horrible things in her past, Hope cannot bring herself to trust any man let alone one as seemingly perfect as Raymond. With the help of Mamma Lou and Hope's sister, Faith, eventually Raymond and Hope come to realize that the ONE SURE THING they have between them is true love. The lasting kind. It was fun to revisit characters from PRICELESS GIFT. And I'm looking forward to finding out who Mamma Lou will find a match for next. Will it be JT or the elusive Kennedy?
Smart, funny, and totally engrossing. You don't want to miss ONE SURE THING!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Story But... 6 Nov 2006
By Scottie - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I liked the story line for this book, but felt it was tooooo long. There were so many times that this story didn't flow well, or could have been left out. I know sometimes one wants detail - but at times there was too much detail. Because of that - 3 stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars All About a Peanut 2 May 2014
By T. Brame - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Book two in the series Mama Lou Matchmaker...and Mama Lou is at it again! She will do almost anything to see her grandchildren happily married off. This time she sets her sights on a doctor named Hope. She doesn't work at the same hospital as her grandson Ray but she'll think of a great plan to get them together. After all the Gates family name carries weight and she plans to use it...just a little.To know that she was the perfect match Mama Lou had to do a little ear hustling herself. She hears that Hope has given up on the other, fairer sex and just wishes to live the single life. Mama Lou has heard this tune before and steps right in.

Using an old trick that has worked before Mama Lou fakes an illness and is rushed to Hope's hospital. She insists to have Hope be her doctor. One character in play now here comes Ray. Once he finds out that his grandmother is in the hospital he rushes to her side and immediately, like the doctor he is, starts to take over. He questions Hope and the hospital in which she works. He is over her shoulder, monitoring her and she is ready to rip him a new one. But he has a card that Hope can do nothing about...The Gates name carries some respect and her boss, who doesn't like her, insists she work with Ray. One little push in the wrong direction and Hope could be out of a job so she's forced to play nice.

It's hilarious that Mama Lou is faking her illness. Purposefully making herself sick by eating peanuts which she knows she is allergic to just so they can work their attraction out. When they do find out that she has been matchmaking again, it's too late they are already hot for one another and head over heals in love. Ray at one time thought it was a trick but talked himself out of it....he should have stuck with his first mind. That Mama Lou is slick....So J.T., Madison's twin is starting to see the writing on the wall when at the wedding Mama Lou is making goo-goo eyes at him.. watch out hear she comes

Another sure thing is that Celeste Norfleet is gifted in the pen. She has such an exciting way of spinning a story that keeps the reader wanting more.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, horrible editing. 6 Aug 2013
By ReaderJewel - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the story, but it was poorly edited. Wrong words, often wrong tense of verbs, and very often inconsistencies, for example, Hope finished her graveyard shift in ER, and "stepped outside to dusk, not quite dark". Poor editing decreased my enjoyment greatly.
