In the story, Julia Palmer, a professional matchmaker in Portland, Oregon, sets out to convince a handsome newcomer named Daniel (Paevey), also known by the residents as ‘Mr. Stay Single’, to sign up for their matchmaking services. If Julia can land Daniel as a client, it would be a big deal for her career and would clear the path for her to take over the reins at the firm. After Daniel reluctantly agrees to be matched, the two work closely together and Julia begins to develop feelings for him but works to suppress her feelings, since Daniel’s a client, in order to stay professional. That’s easier said than done when she’s forced to act excited as Daniel attends the town’s annual Valentine’s Day party with his newly matched date – especially since Julia secretly took a compatibility test that resulted in her being a 100% match for Daniel. During the couples’ dance, Julia struggles whether or not to take her own advice for happiness or hold out for her career. In the end, Daniel’s surprising and unexpected admission makes the decision much easier.
