Coming Fall 2014 - Charlotte's Story continues in The Match Maker
Charlotte has had an active dating life, but she hasn't had a relationship that sticks yet. In fact, she's gotten a bit of a reputation as a "husband maker." Ever guy she has dated has married the next woman he dated after breaking up with Charlotte. People are starting to talk about it, and Charlotte is not pleased. When she finally decides to take a chance on someone her boss wants to set her up with, Charlotte is not prepared for what a good relationship she develops. Will this one finally be the one that lasts?
This is a fun, quick read. I'm not going to pretend like the plot was unpredictable or anything. I kind of saw where it was going fairly quickly. That didn't make it any less enjoyable. I found Charlotte to be very likable, and you couldn't help but want her to get what she wants out of life. I loved the relationships she had with friends and family. I actually knew a girl who had a reputation as a husband maker in college. I think she had dated like 5 guys who all went on to get married on their next relationship. Luckily she managed to find the perfect guy for her, and so I have no doubt Charlotte can manage the same thing.
I read this almost all in one sitting. Once I got into it I wanted to keep going, even having a strong feeling on where the plot was going (I was correct). For me the fun is in seeing how everyone gets there though, so that was a big reason I enjoyed it. Another thing I really enjoyed was a lack of the sorts of dumb decisions you see characters make in these books sometimes. These people were all smart and mature, and they did things for good reasons. I was never left scratching my head wondering why on earth someone would do that. There was never a poor decision to just move the plot along. I really enjoyed that. If there was one thing I didn't like, it was that the ending felt a little abrupt to me. I know the author was going for a cliffhanger feel, but I wanted to know what happens. In any case, this is a great book, and I will definitely be checking the next book in the series out.
