I have a fun author interview today with Lindzee Armstrong. She is celebrating the release of her latest book (a contemporary romance), Miss Match. But, before we get to the interview, a little about the book!
MISS MATCH is finally here! I’m so excited to share the rest of Brooke and Luke’s story with the world. To celebrate, it’s on sale for $0.99 this week only. Sale ends May 10th!
About MISS MATCH
Billionaire CEO Luke Ryder doesn’t want to hire his best friend, Brooke, as his matchmaker. Not when he’s been in love with her for eight years. Too bad she doesn’t see him as relationship material and is engaged to another man. If the matchmaking company she works for closes, Brooke is out of a job, and Luke is out a best friend. There will be nothing stopping her from moving to Italy with her fiancé. And Luke isn’t about to let that happen.
Brooke’s dream career may be crumbling, and she will do anything to keep Toujour in the black. Even recruit Luke, America’s favorite bachelor, as her next client. Surely his perfect smile and swollen bank account will send clients swarming to their doors. But when matching up Luke works a little too well, Brooke wonders if she’s with the right man. Maybe she should finally forget Luke’s playboy image and admit he’s changed. All Brooke has to decide is if she’s willing to risk her heart.
Because I’m so excited about this book–and to celebrate Mother’s Day–the short prequel novella, Meet Your Match, will be FREE on kindle from May 6th – May 10th. So you can get both the novella and novel for less than a dollar, this week only! Get your copies before the prices go up! And I hope you enjoy Brooke and Luke’s story.

Now, for our interview!
(Sticking with questions using the letters from the book title)
M is for Matchmaking: What drew you to, or gave you the idea of a matchmaking agency?
A few years ago, I saw this commercial for a reality television show about matchmakers. That’s where my initial idea was sparked. I watched the show, and really wasn’t impressed. I thought “I can come up with something way better than this!” and started working more and more on my idea. The show was canceled after only a few episodes, and I don’t even remember the name of it. But I’m glad it was around for a little while or I might never have written this book!
A is for Advice: What life advice would each of your main characters give someone?
I think Brooke’s life advice would be “learn to trust others, even if you get hurt.” Luke’s life advice would be “don’t let fear stop you from making the right choices and decisions.”
T is for Trials: Without spoilers, what do you think you characters have learned through the trails they have gone through?
It’s tied closely to their advice, I think. Brooke learns to trust others, especially men, and to not let her past affect her future. Luke learns that some things are worth taking risks and fighting for.
C is for Continuing: Will this be a continuing series? What will be your ‘continuing’ works (next books)?
Yes! There’s already a prequel novella to the series, Meet Your Match. It tells the story of how Brooke and Luke meet in high school, and can be read before or after Miss Match.
The No Match For Love series will continue for at least two more books, but I’m guessing many more. Book two is tentatively titled Objectionably Matched and will overlap the timeline of Miss Match. That’s Andi’s story. And Book three is Not Your Match, and will be Zoey’s story. It’ll take place a year or so after Miss Match. I’m also hoping to write a few more novellas for this series. The possibilities for this series are really endless! I’ll keep writing on it until I run out of stories to tell.
H is for Hobbies: What are your favorite hobbies?
Wow, hobbies…what are those? 😉 Writing and reading used to be my hobbies, but now they’re my job, and between work and family there isn’t time for much else. But I am a total TV junkie. I love reality TV, dramas, comedies…anything with really compelling characters and an interesting plot. I also enjoy playing the piano, although I rarely have time for that. And I LOVE to travel. We traveled a lot while I was growing up, and my husband and I are doing our best to give our children those same experiences.
Thank you, Lindzee, for visiting with us today! I loved this book (and the prequel novella!). I will be looking forward to the other books in the series too. 🙂
