Matchmaking Week: Rom-Com Goes Tropical by Jill Kemerer + Giveaway

Let's welcome back Jill Kemerer to Just Commonly!

About this time in February, I usually get a tad stir-crazy. I live in northern Ohio where winters last a solid five to six months. I crave sun on my skin. A reprieve from sweaters and snow. I want…a vacation. Somewhere warm and lovely.

Who’s with me?

But, Jill, it’s expensive, and I have responsibilities. I can’t possibly get away!

What if you could escape into a tropical paradise? And this warm wonderland has no mosquitoes, delayed flights or high price tags. I’m talking about slipping into a fictional getaway—a romantic comedy type of getaway. One that will leave you smiling, laughing and swooning!

Get ready for ten weeks of romance in the Bahamas with a new series brought to you by some of the best authors in the inspirational and sweet romance genres…

Ten top authors of sweet or inspirational romance are bringing you a new novella each week!

Okay, I like the thought of a virtual vacation, but what’s this Resort to Romance series about?
It’s Matchmaking Week at an all-inclusive resort on a private island in the Bahamas. Each guest has been expertly paired and is here to enjoy one full week with their match. While there’s no money-back guarantee on the paid trip, the participants are guaranteed to find love!

Matchmaking Week? What’s up with that?
Ginny and Goldie Sterling are eccentric, wealthy, elderly, spinster twins. They own Joy Island and aren’t afraid to use their matchmaking skills to benefit others. They hired experts to match the singles who applied to take part in Matchmaking Week. These ladies have strict rules, too. No cells, no sex, no switcharoos! They are determined to help singles find their soulmates.

Romantic comedy? I’m not sure...
I hear you. What one person finds hilarious, another finds ridiculous. No one is trying to be a stand-up comedian here. All of the stories are clean and wholesome with no cussing or sex. These are light-hearted stories sure to delight you!

How much is this going to cost me?
All ten books are available for preorder on Amazon. My novella, A Meddled Match, kicks off the series and went on sale yesterday! You can buy it for only $0.99! Each novella is available for only $0.99 until one week after their release date when the price goes up to $2.99. Preorder the full set now!


Gavin Sterling wants no part of Matchmaking Week, but his eccentric great aunts insist he fill in for a no-show or he won't have a chance at inheriting their island resort. Surprisingly, his match intrigues him. Mollie is blunt, sassy, and best of all, has no idea he’s the son of a billionaire.

Mollie Macomb needs a relaxing vacation without the dating drama. A relationship with Gavin would never work in the real world, anyhow. He’s a gorgeous businessman. She's a quirky failure. But even the unlikeliest couple can find love during Matchmaking Week…

  1. What a brilliant premise for a series! I love everything about it. The spinster twins!!! lol It sounds like a great series.

    1. Thanks, Sherrinda! Jessica and I had SO much fun coming up with the premise! Some of the couples make cameos in the rest of the series, too!

  2. have not read any of your books yet and this sounds a good intro!


    1. Bev, this book is lighter and funnier than I typically write! Plus, it's a sweet romance, and I write inspirational (with faith elements). I really had fun writing it--but I also love writing my inspirational romances!

  3. Thanks Jill for stopping by. Sounds like a fun 10 weeks. I am so with you about winter. I grew up in sunny CA and after 22 years still have not acclimatized to Illinois weather. Oh well, it is where family is so this is where I stay. Stay warm and safe.

    2. Sweet. Where our family are, that's where our heart is. Thank you for stopping by!

  4. What a fun idea! I just got back from Hawaii a couple of weeks ago, but I'm ready for another sunny vacation! It's snowy and cold here in northern Utah. Congratulations on your new release!

    1. Ooh, Hawaii sounds amazing, Winnie!! It's cold and blowy here, too. Spring will come eventually!!

    2. Nice! I've always wanted to visit Hawaii!

  5. Thanks so much for the chance to win. Books sounds really good.

  6. I'd willingly escape to somewhere warm and tropical. We're in the midst of a blizzard - highways are closed. At times visibility is down to zero. I can't get off my yard if I tried. A good day for baking an apple pie and reading.

  7. CONGRATULATIONS to LORI S. Please check your inbox for an email from me. Thank you!
