Every Hungarian grandma knows that words have power. Nana Salo never meant the words she said in anger to become a family curse, but that’s just what happened. Her granddaughter Vancy is just the newest victim. Vancy’s fiance has left her at the altar, and now the press is after a hot grandma-curses-granddaughter’s-wedding story. Vancy doesn’t believe in the Salo Family Wedding Curse, but when her groom ditches her and the press is hot on her heels, she’s not quite so sure anymore.
She’s hiding out with Matt Wilde, owner of the Everything Wilde landscaping business, helping out with his two newly-inherited nephews as she figures out what to do. Matt doesn’t believe in curses either, but he seems cursed with thoughts of Vancy Salo that he just can’t seem to shake. A hoard of reporters, a guilty grandma, a gaggle of other family members, and two four-year-olds prone to stealing hearts and wreaking havoc: it’s not exactly a classic situation for falling in love…but that’s just what may be happening for Vancy and Matt.
Every Hungarian Grandma knows that words have power. But Nana Salo never meant the words she said in anger to become a family curse, but that’s just what happened. She thought she had a chance of undoing it at her granddaughter’s wedding, but when things went awry, she pinned her hopes on her grandson, Noah’s wedding.
Noah’s fiancée called things off at the stag, but when his ex’s younger step-sister, and long-time friend Callie, tries to cheer him up, Noah finds the lines between friendship and love blurring.
A shared non-honeymoon, some secret dating, and a crazy Hungarian family might not sound like the normal way to start a relationship, but Callie and Noah learn that love tends to find its own way.
Every Hungarian Grandma knows that words have power. Nana Salo never meant the words she said in anger to become a family curse, but that’s just what happened. Two grandchildren have found love, but not managed to break the curse. Nana’s last hope is Dori, who promises to help her break the curse when she marries…if she marries. Okay, so Dori doesn’t plan to ever marry. So there’s no worry about not being able to keep her promise.
Enter Carter William Hastings. He’s pretending to be an interior designer in order to help his cousin, CeCe. Who could have predicted that this ruse would end with his developing feelings for the contractor, Dori Salo? But Dori knows him as Bill Hastings–what chance does an ordinary guy like Bill Hastings have with her?
Bill and Dori might figure out that their relationship is more than just business–and might even be love–but will they be able to break Nana’s curse?
For years, Nana Vancy Bashalde Salo believed that she d cursed her own family with bad weddings. Now that the curse is broken, she s bored. Her best friends, the Silver Bells, convince her to try her hand at matchmaking. And Nana has just the person in mind: Salo Construction’s new office manager, Eve Allen. Eve is coming out of a bad relationship and longs for a little quiet and order. That’s definitely not in the cards with Nana Vancy around. And it’s even less possible when Nana tries to hook her up with TC Potter, a boy who broke her heart in kindergarten when he told her there was no Santa Claus, and then broke it again in ninth grade when he stood her up for a dance.
Eve’s heart is still healing from her last bad relationship she doesn t need it broken by TC for a third time. Freelance writer TC Potter makes his living writing articles about Every American Man. His life was pretty much perfect until he was named one of America s most eligible bachelors last year. He’s spent the last twelve months hiding out from women who’d like to de-bachelor him. Now he’s finally met someone he d really like to date, but Eve isn’t interested. Maybe with a Hungarian grandmother s help, and a little Christmas magic, he can convince her that they have something too special to ignore.
After attending TC and Eve’s (Everything But a Christmas Eve) wedding, Nana Vancy and her cohorts, Isabel and Annabelle, are looking for two more unsuspecting victims–er friends–to play matchmaker for. It just so happens Isabel’s nephew, Henry Hanson, is visiting Erie with his daughter. Her single nephew.
Heather Rayson runs a community-based daycare center at the local retirement center that Isabel and Annabelle now live in. Heather’s unsure what to make of Nana Vancy when Annabelle and Isabel bring her around, but she soon decides that the three older ladies are up to something. It takes a little longer for her to realize that what they’re up to is trying to fix her up with Professor Henry Hanson. Heather’s not against the idea of dating, and she certainly loves the professor’s daughter, Lissa…but whenever she and the professor are in the same room sparks fly as they spar.
But perhaps there’s a chance that the sparks aren’t really two people who can’t get along, but rather are the sparks of two people that could learn to get along very well indeed with a little nudge from their three matchmaking cupids!
Wannabe matchmaker Nana Vancy has donned her Cupid wings once again–this time for Dr. Della McGraw, the distant cousin of her pal Annabelle. Together with her partners in crime, Annabelle and Isabel, she concocts a clever plan to find Della her knight in shining armor. Their first stop? The local dog shelter.
When Jonah McIntosh rescues three old ladies and their narcoleptic dog, it’s just the topper for his lousy day. But things start looking up when he finds himself in the company of the lovely veterinarian Della. There’s just one teensy problem: he’s allergic to dogs.
But Nana’s convinced a happily ever after is in the cards. Can she work her magic once more–or is this one romance that’s doomed before it’s even begun?
