Lonesome Levi

After breaking up with his girlfriend who returned to her first love, church warehouse manager Levi Theroux finds comfort in his best friend, Maggie.

As she happens to be a friend of Maggie’s, Levi wants her to be his matchmaker and get him that dream girl. Will Maggie take the job? She has to. She’s the only one among his friends whom he trusts fully.

Matchmaker Maggie

Women’s Ministry administrative assistant Maggie Jacobs has fallen in love with Levi after his breakup, and looks forward to seeing him every day as they minister at the Midtown Village of tiny homes for needy single parents and emancipated homeless teens. From November to January, this place turns into a Christmas Village depicting small-town America.

However, she won’t tell him about her feelings because he has not shown any romantic interest in her. Maybe she isn’t his type or something. Now he wants her to help him pursue the chef in the church kitchen. How many ways can he break her heart without even realizing it? Still, she can’t say no to him. Perhaps she has to accept the fact that they would only ever be friends. Or does she? Either way, Maggie sees a dead-end to any romantic relationship. To protect her heart, Maggie decides to leave town…
