Overview

In small towns, no one lets the facts get in the way of juicy gossip…

Terri Rayburn is a girl with a reputation. She doesn’t deserve it, but having grown up on the outskirts of Summer Hill, Virginia, she knows how small towns work. The only way to deal with vicious gossip is to ignore it. So she keeps to herself as she runs the summer resort on Lake Kissel.

When she returns home from a short trip to find a handsome stranger living in her house, she smells a rat. Someone is trying to fix her up, and she has to admit that Nate Taggert is just her type. However, Nate is engaged to the daughter of the mayor and strictly off-limits.

Nate and Terri form an unlikely friendship while he throws himself into life at the lake. As Nate starts to hear rumors about Terri he’s confused. Knowing how smart, beautiful and strong she is, he’s determined to discover the source of the gossip. Terri doesn’t want to revisit the past, but Nate won’t stop until he discovers the truth—even if the truth might be more than either of them can handle.

Set in the beloved fictional town of Summer Hill, Virginia, Met Her Match examines the tensions between the wealthy townspeople, the summer vacationers and the working-class people who keep the town and resort running. Told with humor and heart, Met Her Match is the perfect summer escape.

3.5/5 stars Met Her Match was a good romance story with a bit of drama! It definitely put me in a summer mood with it's lakeside town, summer night parties and slow burn romance. Synopsis Terri comes home to the lake resort, that she runs with her dad, after completing an errand to find a very sexy Nate will be living with her for the next few weeks. Terri feels that someone, most likely her dad, is playing matchmaker and trying to set her up with Nate. Unfortunately, Nate's engaged to marry the mayor's daughter who has the rest of his life planned out for him. After getting to know Terri, Nate can't understand why there's tension between the town and lake people, but he believes Terri's caught in the middle of it. Pacing & Points of View The overall pacing was average. With everything going in within the story, it didn't make for a fast read. Terri and Nate were the main points of view for the story and it was nice to see what was going on in each other's heads as the romance progressed. Characters Terri and Nate's romance was definitely a slow burn with him being engaged and both of them complete strangers at first. I'm always drawn into stories when the characters are forced to live together for a time! I loved Terri's independent nature and how Nate threw himself into whatever he was doing. The town versus lake people drama was interesting as well and kept you wondering what happened in the past to cause the rift. Overall I liked this dramatic romance with summer feels and a bit of mystery. Perfect for fans that like their romance on the lighter side with more of a story and a really good backstory that reveals itself at the end. *Thank you to NeGalley, HarperCollins and Harlequin for allowing me the opportunity to read this digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.

What a tangled web and Terri's caught in the middle 4.5stars This story morphed from romance to suspense and kept me engaged beginning to end. Terri, the young woman at the heart of the action, has had troubles and heaps of responsibility throughout her life in small-town Virginia where a reputation once ruined is hard to repair. When Nate shows up, his presence is a mixed blessing. He helps lighten her work burdens, but their flirtation and closeness also goads the town gossips into fresh critiques of Terri's character. Terri's a very sympathetic heroine. I particularly liked the manner in which author Jude Deveraux released bits of information throughout the book to reveal the events that made Terri and her mother Leslie such pariahs in the town. The plot, writing and character development were strong; I just thought the ending seemed slightly clipped and rushed compared to the rest of the story. Thanks to the publishers and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

Met Her Match is a win for the underdogs. Terri Rayborn is a girl from the wrong side of town, technically Lake Kissel. She has spent her whole life living down her mother's reputation of running off with a man. Every bad situation Terri fell victim to, she always took the blame for. She spends her days running her father's business at he the Lake seeing to the renters and any emergency that pops up until she comes home to find a hot man that seems to be sent just for her. Nate Taggert is in town to marry the mayor's daughter and start a new business. A man of adventure and action, Nate and Terri fall into a routine like an old married couple. A man torn between two women and who he really is, Nate wins over hearts and Terri feels like your new best friend. The love story between the two is a long, complicated road that ends in an interesting mystery that needs solved to allow for a very satisfying HEA. Laced with humor and entertaining, the book is a fast paced, heart tugging read that leaves you with a smile. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

A slow-burn romance with that Jude Deveraux flair that keeps us reading every title. Plenty of sizzle and lots of good story.

Best-selling author, Jude Deveraux, has held my attention for years. Offhand, I can’t think of any of her titles that I haven’t enjoyed. Met Her Match, Deveraux’s newest release, was just as enjoyable as her other works. Perfect summer escape, indeed. The balance between the “classes”, the mystery, the camaraderie, the romance – they were all sweetly done in that read-in-a-hammock type of way. (If you’re a devotee of romance novels, you’ll totally get what I mean!) The chemistry between the love interests, the descriptions of the resort town, and all the twists of gossip – reliable or otherwise – made for a relatable read and made you feel like you were sitting lakeside with the rest of the crew. It might not be summer anymore, but this one would be a great stocking stuffer for those who like sweet, sizzling, contemporary romance with a twist of mystery. Great to read over a weekend or sitting in the school carpool lane! Released a few days ago, it should be available on all major booksellers shelves now. My thanks to the publisher for a chance to read an advanced reader’s copy courtesy of NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

Met Her Match by Jude Deveraux is the 2nd book in her Summer Hill series. Terri Rayburn, our heroine, has lived all her life in the small town of Summer Hill, Virginia, and has learned to put up with the terrible false gossip about her reputation during her younger years. Terri’s mother left town suddenly when she was a young girl, with the townsfolk’s calling her mother a tramp, and unfortunately the sins of the mother was passed over to Terri. She erroneously was blamed for hurting some high school boys, even if it was self defense against their attack, and when she dumped her popular boyfriend, the town blamed her. A grown-up Terri doesn’t let it bother her, as she is respected for the work, she does to run the Lake Kissel summer resort. When Terri gets back from a vacation, she finds a man living in her house. Nate Taggert, our hero, is planning to move to Summer Hill with his fiancée, but for now his uncle told him to stay at the house on the lake, which has multiple rooms; after a few days, he meets Terri. After a rough start, a friendship begins between Terri and Nate, with both of them helping each other fix all the things happening around the resort, as well as the cabins and land surrounding the lake. Terri begins to feel an attraction to the handsome hunky Nate, but knows he is off limits, especially with his fiancée being the Mayor’s daughter. Nate is very comfortable around Terri, and also begins to feel the attraction to her, but is determined to stay with his fiancée and not let the lust he feels get in the way. In no time, I loved Terri and Nate together and rooted hard for them, knowing that they were had great chemistry, and so perfect for each other. What follows is a wonderful slow built romance between a couple we loved, and rooted hard for them to recognize that they were destined to be together. Near the last quarter of the book, a mystery about Terri’s mother takes center stage, and the truth will be revealed. Gossip can be very hurtful, especially for the innocent and this story leads to that when people realize that what they thought they knew was not what really happened, and Terri was maligned for no reason. Met Her Match was very well written by Jude Deveraux, and the story line was very well done, with a sweet fun romance and a great couple. I suggest you read Met Her Match.

I am a first-time reader of Jude Deveraux- and after finishing 'Met Her Match,' I realize I have been missing out! I could not get enough of this small town with its big secrets, gossip, dark, murderous mysteries, and partying vibe! A rollercoaster of highs, lows and plenty of frustrations ( anger and sexual ) the hidden gems of humor, zings of attraction between main characters Terri and Nate, those "helpful shoves " from family, friends and nosey neighbors. Combined with emotionally broken pieces being put back together- made for beautifully heart squeeze of a romance that, Phew! I read it all in one sitting happily! I look forward to digging into more work by this author very soon!

In Met Her Match by Jude Deveraux, we visit the small town of Summer Hill, VA. Terrie Rayburn has been treated as an outcast because of actions by mother. While spending her days taking care of the summer resort on Lake Kissel, she keeps busy so she can avoid the small town gossip. When she returns home she finds Nate Taggert, a handsome stranger, living in her house. Nate came to Summer Hill to spend time with his fiancé, but she left for Italy for a few weeks. Terrie thought she had finally met her match only to learn Nate is engaged to the mayor's daughter and strictly off-limits. Nate starts to throw himself into life at the lake and he and Terrie become fast friends. As Nate starts to hear the rumors about Terri, he’s determined to discover the source of the gossip. Terri doesn’t want to revisit her painful past, but Nate will stop at nothing to uncover the truth; even if the truth might be more than either of them can handle. Ms. Deveraux wrote a truly interesting tale, part slow burn romance tied in with a mystery that is not to be missed. Met Her Match is book two in the Summer Hill series, although it is a stand alone story. I loved the development of the characters as well as the banter between Terri and Nate and how perfect they were for each other. I just wished he wasn't engaged. Technically he didn't cheat on his fiancé but the situation he put himself in made me a bit uncomfortable. I definitely recommend Met Her Match to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley to read in exchange for a fair review. Met Her Match by Jude Devereaux is the story that explores life in a small town, the divide between those that live in town and those that live out at the lake and how gossip carries on through generations. Terri Rayburn lives out at the lake, her family looks after the properties that border the lake and rent out cabins to tourists and annual visitors. Terri’s mother disappeared when she was a small child and the people in town look down their noses at her because they’re sure she’s flighty just like her mama. She comes home from a couple of days away to find that her family has moved Nate Taggert into her house as he’s engaged to the mayor’s daughter Stacy and needed a place to stay until his fiancee gets back from a trip to Italy. With nothing to do while he waits for Stacy to return he helps Terri out with the never ending list of things to be done around the lake and a firm friendship is formed. Nate being the kind of guy who likes to fix things determines to solve the mysteries surrounding Terri’s moms disappearance to put to rest the gossip and rumours so that Terri can live her own life and along the way figures out who it is he wants to be. I enjoyed this story very much and hope that the author will write some more stories about Summer Hill, Virginia. Medium Steam.

Met Her Match (Summer Hill #2) is full of small-town gossip, devilishly crafted characters, lots of secrets, and romance. There is mystery, and twists that round this book out and keeps the reader wondering what is going on in the seeming near-perfect fictional town of Summer Hill. I say near-perfect because there is lots of angst and tension between the three groups of people in the town, the wealthy townspeople, the summer lake people and the working-class people who run the resort of Kissel Lake. Met Her Match is my first book by Jude Deveraux, and I am looking forward to reading more from this author. I did not have the pleasure to read the first book in this series, but I do plan to go back and fix that little misstep. I don't feel that you have to read the first book as the author did an excellent job in explaining the history of Summer Hill. Jude Deveraux's writing style is spot-on; she made me feel as if I was part of this small town, and I could be best friends with the main character, Terri Rayburn. Terri has had to deal with the cruel gossip about her missing mother her whole life. This gossip has in turn been put upon her. In spite of this, Terri has become a strong, self-reliant woman who held fast to her beliefs and morals. Terri returns from a short business trip to find the very handsome Nate Taggert living in her home. Together they figure out that Nate's uncle Kit was the one that arranged for Nate to live in Terri's house. Nate is the total package. He is a good looking, strong, intelligent man, with principles. After some very heated back and forth banter between the two Terri decides to let Nate stay in her house. There is an immediate attraction, but Nate being the great guy that he is tells Terri he is engaged. His fiancé happens to have gone to high school with Terri. But she is just not just any girl; she is the perfect, sweet, beautiful Stacy Hartman, who happens to be in Italy for two weeks. Over two weeks, Terri and Nate fall into an easy friendship that is full of sexual tension. Ahh, but don't be fooled, this book is so much more than a simple taboo romance. There are decades-old secrets, and twists and turns I didn't see coming. The supporting cast of "characters" were excellent, and I want to know more about them. The balance of tone is perfect in the book. At times the book had me smiling and laughing, and other times there was some intense darkness that had me wanting to give Terri a big mom hug. I look forward to catching up with the first book in this series, The Girl from Summer Hill, and looking forward to reading future books in the series. #MetHerMatch #NetGalley #Romance #Smalltown *** I kindly received this galley by way of NetGalley/publisher/author.

Met Her Match is a slow burn romance with a love triangle of sorts. Not exactly a triangle in the usual sense, but Nate is being pulled in two different directions even when he doesn't realize it. The story moves a bit slow at first, which would normally turn me off in a romance, but I had forgotten how truly talented Jude Deveraux is when it comes to pulling a reader into the story. It didn't take long before I was hooked on these characters and their lives. They're all wonderfully developed, and the author has given us a whole town full of them. From our romantic couple to the visitors at the lake to the town gossip, they all add something to this story that is at its core a story about the differences between the haves and the have nots. The chemistry between Terri and Nate is darn near perfect. They fit together even when they're butting heads, and I don't want to give spoilers, so I'll just say that I absolutely loved the dance scene. From start to finish, it's sexy and about as romantic as it gets. I hesitate to say it, but if anything, Nate is a little bit too perfect. He knows how to do everything, and he fits in with any crowd. Part of that can be attributed to his past, but I kind of wanted to see him mess up a little. Regardless, I still liked him and spent a good portion of this book wanting him to make the right decision. Terri is just as likable if too concerned about what others think. It is understandable given her past, which also gives a mystery. And that mystery leads to a fair amount of mayhem for the conclusion. It's been quite some time since I've read a Jude Deveraux book, and after reading this one, I'm wondering why. Met Her Match made for a great weekend read and I'll certainly be checking out whatever she does next.

Unfortunately, Terri has a bad reputation that began the year her mother suddenly left town.

Terri Rayburn grew up on the outskirts of Summer Hill, VA and spends her days taking care of the summer resort on Lake Kissel. She keeps herself busy so she can stay out of the small town gossip - there're enough false rumors about her childhood already. However, when she returns home to find Nate Taggert, a handsome stranger living in her house, she thought she has met her match. Unfortunately, Nate is engaged to the mayor's daughter and is strictly off-limits. Nate starts to throw himself into life at the lake and they become fast friends. As Nate starts to hear rumors about Terri, he’s determined to discover the source of the gossip. Terri doesn’t want to revisit her painful past, but Nate will stop at nothing to uncover the truth—even if the truth might be more than either of them can handle. Jude Deveraux is a household name when it comes to romances. Met Her Match is book two in the Summer Hill series. I haven't read the first one but the storyline is pretty standalone. I thought it was a good read with well developed characters. I loved the banter between Terri and Nate and how perfect they were for each other. I just wished he wasn't engaged. Technically he didn't cheat on his fiancee but the situation he put himself in made me uncomfortable. Can't wait to see what the next book in the series brings!

This latest book by Jude Deveraux about the small town of Summerhill, Va was as entertaining as any I have read in awhile. There are other books about Summerhill, and I believe I have read some of them, but this book kept me engaged for the whole book. I loved Nate, and Terri. She along with her father ran a lake real estate and rentals outside of town. There was definitely a distinction between townies and lake people, and Terri had born the brunt of many of those feelings that the lake people were no good. Nate arrives in town as the fiancé on the mayor’s daughter who is in Italy studying. Stacy, the fiancé and Terri are worlds apart in looks, and personality, but because Nate is bored waiting for Stacy, he begins hanging out at the lake and helping Terri with life around the lake renters and owners. Of course, there is an attraction that both try to ignore. This would be a good story on its own, but Ms. Devereux adds a murder mystery. It ties up the entire storyline, but I felt it was a bit of an add on to this story. It really didn’t become a focal point for the story until the last fourth of this book. Overall, an enjoyable story!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for a honest review. I really enjoyed Met Her Match, Nate and Terri had so much chemistry between themselves. The book was well written, with lots of different emotions mixed into the storyline. Although this book does contain some suspense it is much more a book centered around romance. I would definitely recommend this book to all of my friends.

Oh good grief! Why on earth do people think that children bear some sort of responsibility for what their parents do? Especially children like Terri, whose mom left when she was a toddler. Yes, Terri was a tough teen but seriously...She's got a great dad, among other things, and she runs the resort at Lake Kissel in Summer Hill, Virginia. There's a townie versus summer person thing going on here too. And the arrogance of Nate's father, who thinks he can put Nate in Terri's house while she's away. Turns out ok though. The two of them bond quickly and then they have to deal with their feelings. Nate's fiancé in in Europe but she'll be back soon so they have to make some decisions. Thanks to the publisher for the ARC - it's a good read for Deveraux fans and anyone else looking to relax. Oh- and while it's the second in the series, it's perfectly fine as a standalone.
