TLC Book Tours Book Review: Matchmaking For Beginners

About Matchmaking for Beginners

Hardcover: 370 pages
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (June 1, 2018)
Marnie MacGraw wants an ordinary life—a husband, kids, and a minivan in the suburbs. Now that she’s marrying the man of her dreams, she’s sure this is the life she’ll get. Then Marnie meets Blix Holliday, her fiancé’s irascible matchmaking great-aunt who’s dying, and everything changes—just as Blix told her it would.
When her marriage ends after two miserable weeks, Marnie is understandably shocked. She’s even more astonished to find that she’s inherited Blix’s Brooklyn brownstone along with all of Blix’s unfinished “projects”: the heartbroken, oddball friends and neighbors running from happiness. Marnie doesn’t believe she’s anything special, but Blix somehow knew she was the perfect person to follow in her matchmaker footsteps.
And Blix was also right about some things Marnie must learn the hard way: love is hard to recognize, and the ones who push love away often are the ones who need it most.

Review: I have one of Maddie's other books on my TBR pile, and now I have incentive to read it, because Matchmaking For Beginners was such a funny, fun, smart read.

This is a book that gets you laughing from the first chapter. The characters are quirky. Blix automatically wins your heart and so will Marnie.

I love stories that give you the warm fuzzy feelings and this is one of those stories. It fills you up with emotion and just makes you feel good for having read it.

If you were looking for the typical chicklit type book, this is not it. Its light but not overly fluffy.

I highly recommend this book.
