Inspirational Romance

Chaos was the only bit of consistency in the Velasquez household. Three teenagers could cause enough disruptions. Now there was the addition of six year old triplets, who had unfortunately earned the moniker The Terrible Trio. Joseph was more than willing, and capable, to add them to his care. He was certain that the continual pandemonium of his home could beat most people, particularly his neighbor, the organized, homemaker guru, Harmony Solberg.

Harmony had left her television show, and the promise of a good career, for the small town of Orchard Hill. She was content to live here, simply writing a cookbook. Her new neighbors, however, seemed intent on disrupting her peace. Not that she was particularly pleased with the rut her life seemed to be in. But when she went to see her new neighbors, it appeared she couldn't do anything other than overstep her welcome, so she retreated.

The Velazquez children seemed to be intent on making friends with Harmony, and Joseph seemed to maybe yearn for something more than friendship. Harmony had misjudged relationships in the past, and was afraid of being hurt again. It would take the help of a team of matchmakers to see these two to their rightful end.

Disrupting Harmony was a romance filled with chaos, friendships and peace. We had met Joseph's brood in Enduring Hope, and it was exciting watching them pull Harmony ever so firmly into their family. I adored Joseph's grumblings whenever Oliver, his future brother-in-law, was mentioned. He didn't think he deserved Hope, although I doubt any man would have been good enough for his sister. Harmony's gentle admonitions during these scenes proved how perfect she was for him.

This is the seventh story of the Orchard Hill series where Pansy Parker and Misty Green are in a year long competition to see who is the better matchmaker.
