Two lonely people brought together by a meddling aunt's matchmaking find more than just friendship over the Internet.
Jo Barrett is a fantastic author and even in this short little story you still get a morsel of what a talent she is.
Casey is a divorcee with a lovable aunt trying to do a little matchmaking. It’s a relationship started over email—over a wire as the title suggests. Casey finds scientist, Daniel, to be sweet, earnest, and shy. Exactly what she needs. This is the story of two lonely people who decide to stretch out of their comfort zone and begin a friendship that could make a lasting impression on their future.
I enjoyed the personalities of both these characters—their sense of humors and insecurities. They made me laugh and they made me feel for their lonely situations. It may be a short read but this really was one of the sweetest and very romantic stories I’ve read in a long time. Jo Barrett is a true craftsman of the pen. This is a complete story from beginning to end—from one emotion to another. You need to read this story!
