#Interview with Lacey Baker author of #NewRelease Her Unexpected Match #ContemporaryRomance @laceybakerbook @XpressoTours

Her Unexpected Match (Crescent Matchmaker Book 1) by Lacey Baker released on February 29 in the Adult, Contemporary, Romance genre.

Travel writer Allie Sparks has one goal: to find the story that will save her career. So here she is, visiting her bestie on picturesque Crescent Island—with sun-warmed beaches, the briny smell of the ocean, and rumors of a secret astrologer-matchmaker who guarantees love. Of course, Allie doesn’t believe in any of that stuff. If anything, she’ll prove it’s a total scam.

Ryan Parker believes in love—just not right now. He’s focused on expanding his family’s barbeque business, finding investors, and keeping his too-big Great Dane puppy from jumping on everyone, including his sister’s pretty, whiskey-eyed best friend. Besides, falling for a tourist is definitely not in his astrological forecast.

Allie is doing everything she can to resist the charm of the town and its beauty, not to mention her attraction to Ryan. But there’s a lot more happening on Crescent Island than anyone knows…and when her story goes to print, this tiny, close-knit town might never be the same.

Lacey Baker, a Maryland native, lives with her husband, three children, two grandchildren and English Bulldog in what most would call Suburban America–a townhouse development where everybody knows each other and each other’s kids. Family cook-outs, reunion vacations, and growing up in church have all inspired Lacey to work towards her dreams and to write about the endurance of family and the quest to find everlasting love. To date she has written in several genres including small town romance, YA paranormal (as Artist Arthur), a cozy mystery series titled Rumors and adult paranormal (as A.C. Arthur).

Can you tell us more about the series?

I’m so excited about this series! It’s about an island town and the matchmaker who’s daily blog posts are bringing more tourists to their picturesque home. There’s an award-winning barbeque restaurant on the island, and a luxury resort, a huge gift shop that plays Motown music and a town historian who sells her famous cinnamon rolls wherever she goes.

Her Unexpected Match is Book #1 in this series is a slow burn full of cute romantic times between Allie and Ryan who never expected to fall in love. Allie’s not excited about being on the island because the trip came with the threat of losing her job. If she doesn’t write the correct type of story she’ll be out of work, but how can she write a positive story when because of childhood trauma she’s used to thinking negative? Ryan’s the exact opposite of Allie, an optimist who’s hoping his hard work is about to pay off with the expansion of his family’s barbeque restaurant. The two of them, along with Ryan’s dog Optimus began to build an unbreakable bond and eventually the Crescent Matchmaker has another win in her column.

I was inspired to write this story by my visiting some of my favorite places in my home state of Maryland. I love the small town feel of the coastal towns on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and always enjoy creating fictional characters and places based off that area.

At the moment, there are two more books planned for this series—two mor opportunities for unsuspecting couples to be united via the Crescent Matchmaker. Or, who knows, maybe the matchmaker will finally find their match? 😊
