The Match Maker is book #2 in Karey White’s Husband Maker series. Although this book can be enjoyed on its own, I believe that book 1 would grant a great deal of context. It was so difficult to begin this review because I want to tell everything that happens! I love this series so far! I think that it is much more enjoyable for readers to take the emotional ride with Charlotte, and her friends, without too much information. I therefore will not spoil too much of the story for you.
I love stories with relatable characters, and I am a firm believer that you can write about relationships and romance, without being distasteful. Karey White does an incredible job of presenting characters that are hilarious, and not exactly predictable. The women in this book are much like those that you would find in your own social circles, and they want what most women want: love. The characters aren’t perfect, and they don’t make the wisest decisions, but I couldn’t help myself from cheering them on, and wishing the best for them.
Charlotte must not be wife material because as soon as a man breaks up with her, he marries the next woman that he dates. Imagine what that could do to an ego! When she broke up with Kyle, it was disappointing enough. Upon hearing that he was officially engaged, just six months after their relationship, she is devastated! Who really wants to be the “husband maker” instead of the wife? Is she the cause? Is her timing “off,” or something? Why are these men ready to marry after she is out of the picture?
As life moves on, she manages to successfully play matchmaker for her friend Aleena, but still ponders when things will ever turn around for her own love life. Finn, a Scottish tourist, helps things to become a bit interesting for Charlotte. She meets him during his visit to the States, and thinks nothing more of the relationship than friendship. She remains in touch with Finn after he returns home to Scotland. She takes a chance by taking Finn up on his offer to visit him. Although she fights against it, Charlotte finds herself intrigued, charmed, and even hopeful. Maybe he is it, the one, hers at last. Maybe her heart will not betray her. Maybe things will work out, and she will find love at last.
If you enjoy clean romance stories, and find yourself cheering for true love, then I believe that you will enjoy this series. The Match Maker is a fun, quick read, and can be a nice break from the hustle, and bustle of the next few weeks of holiday plans. I look forward to what happens next in Charlotte’s life.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Match Maker by Karey White (The Husband Maker #2)
(Summary contains spoilers if you have not yet read book #1 The Husband Maker)
It’s been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart.
In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it’s time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is left feeling more alone that ever–at least until the charming Scotsman becomes more than just a safe, rebound guy and teaches her that maybe, just maybe, she can dare to open her heart again.
