When career-driven Olivia Farnsworth and Kingston Bedford refuse to act on their obvious chemistry, the town of Maple Falls schemes to pair the two up—and dance their way to another happy ending.

Olivia Farnsworth always has a plan and knows just what she likes. She likes her job as head librarian. She likes spending time with her aunt Bea and with her close-knit group of friends. She likes attending the cinema’s monthly Vintage Movie Night. What she does not like is stepping outside her comfort zone. But when Kingston Bedford, her best friend’s older brother, runs into her at the movies, that’s exactly what she does. She takes a chance on the gorgeous pediatrician she’s known her whole life—only to crash land her way into heartache. Twice. One year later, she’s determined to avoid him forever. Aunt Bea and her Bosom Buddies, however, have other ideas. Plans that begin with ballroom dancing lessons . . . and end with one of the Bosom Buddies getting a taste of her own matchmaking medicine.

Kingston never thought he’d be utterly alone—as his mother puts it—in his thirties. But somehow, he’s let his life spiral out of control. His career has taken over, leaving no time for romance. That is, until his clinic forces him to take a two-month sabbatical. But is it too late to start over with the girl he can’t get off his mind?

Luckily, the scheming town of Maple Falls is once again ready to help make sparks fly.

This was absolutely delightful. The plot was well-paced and captivating from start to finish. The characters were charming and witty. I highly recommend this fun and quick read! Many thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the advanced copy of the book.

What I’ve learned from reading other books by Kathleen Fuller is she has the most interesting, delightful, fun characters that get right into the readers heart from the beginning. This book is no exception.

This enchanting, delightful story takes us back to the small town of Maple Falls, Arkansas where Olivia, the town librarian depends on her very precise planning for all things. She is very predictable and as an example every Monday for many years she arrives 30 minutes early for Vintage Movie Night at the local Sunset Cinema. She sits in the same seat each time, seventh row, tenth seat and has the same drink, a Diet Coke. On one particular night a man sits in her row. What a surprise to find it is Kingston, the older brother of her best friend, Anita. He slides over and shares his popcorn with her.

Olivia’s parents are academics and were often out of town doing research and eventually moved away. As a result, Olivia was partly raised by her Aunt Bea. Aunt Bea has a close circle of friends, who call themselves the Bosom Buddies, BBs for short. At a regular meeting of the BBs, it has been decided Olivia is in a rut and needs a man in her life. Her close friends are now all married and some even expecting their first child. The BBs feel it’s their duty to go into full matchmaking mode with their sights set on Kingston as the perfect man for Olivia. They even recruit Kingston’s mother to get involved in their matchmaking schemes. This causes Olivia and Kingston to come up with the idea of “fake” dating to throw them off and to hopefully leave them alone. Fake dating, along with dance lessons at the new dance studio in town creates more complications than they could have ever imagined.

This book is full of shenanigans contrived by the masterminds of the BBs, in fact, one of the BBs has also taken her friendship with Jasper an old friend to another level. Has been awhile since I’ve read such a heartwarming, delightful, laugh-out-loud book. I was disappointed when I came to the end, but hopeful Kathleen has more of these of these stories yet to come.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Two to Tango is fourth and final book in the Maple Falls series that takes place in Arkansas. I believe this last book is my favorite in the series. The chemistry between Kingston and Olivia was there was the beginning but because of Kingston overtaxed schedule as a pediatrician he messed things up with her by ghosting her two different times. After the first time he ghosted her she decided to give him a second chance but he blew that chance. Fast forward a year later the older ladies and his overbearing mother could see the "chemistry" there and schemed to get them together but Olvia is twice bitten so it is not going to be easy for her to forgive him. This book had me laughing with the antics of the older ladies. If a book can manage to bring a smile to my face that's an added bonus to me. Also, there is an additonal romance in the book of two of the older characters in ths book. I really thororoughly enjoyed this book and hope the author writes more contemporary romance books.

I was captivated by the characters in Two to Tango because they are so endearing. I was hooked from the prologue, and my interest remained piqued till the end.
Olivia and Kingston have a real attraction to one another, but they have barriers to get past. An elderly group of women who call themselves the BBs try to help them by playing matchmakers. They use several antics, one of which is getting them to take dance lessons. The BBs are lovable and quirky, and at times they are troublemakers!
The secondary romance with one of the BBs is a delightful bonus to this story.
I love the personalities in this book! I had read the first three books in this series before reading Two to Tango. I think reading this book before the other 3 would be okay, but I'm glad I'd read the other three first because I already knew the other characters and their back stories.
I highly recommend this book and the whole series!

Two to Tango is Kathleen Fuller's latest story set in Maple Springs. I adored this book. It is about Olivia, one of the CC's: four best friends who meet weekly and share life with each other. The previous books have followed the romances of each of them and now we have Olivia and Kingston's story. Olivia is a planner. Full throttle, plan away every part of her life. Kingston is a busy doctor who can't seem to keep up with everything on his plate. When they run into each other at a movie one night, sparks fly. But Kingston doesn't follow up and spend time with her like he promised. Fast forward a couple of years, and he is forced onto a sabbatical at work because he is not doing his job like he should. He and Olivia find themselves in each other's company again, increasingly more so as the BB's decide to play matchmaker. With a lot of tender moments and several laugh out loud ones as well, you will be rooting for the two of them as they find their way to a happily ever after.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Olivia Farnsworth has a plan and she has no space for spontaneity. She tells herself that she’s happy with her routine but the question is; is she really happy and content when her group of friends, Riley, Anita, and Harper have gotten married and are slowly starting their own families.

I have been waiting for Kingston’s story from the beginning of this series. And finally, I got it! To be honest, it never occurred to me that Olivia needed her own story, but it became very clear that she was a sweet, smart woman who needed someone like Kingston and he needed someone like her in hers. A Two to Tango was my absolute favorite in this series, I read this in one sitting!

My gratitude Netgalley and Thomas Nelson. All opinions expressed are mine.
