Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson

Is it read-worth? “Whatever happens, love that.” And I loved this book. I absolutely loved it. The magic, the romance, the warm fuzzy feeling in your chest. I’ve never read a book where I read it smiling, put it down smiling, and spend the rest of the night smiling. Truly magical, enchanting, lovely. I am in love with this book.

Summary (Spoiler Free)

Marnie MacGraw wants a normal life more than anything else. She wants the husband, the kids, the white picket fence, and the house in the subpoards. And, when she’s planning the wedding with her fiance, Noah, she knows she’s going to get it.

That is until she meets Noah’s dying matchmaker great-aunt, Blix, who tells her that everything is about to change. 

Noah almost leaves her at the altar and they breakup officially during their honeymoon! 

Left in a state of shock, Marnie’s life feels like it’s falling apart and just when she starts to pick up the pieces another big shock happens. Great Aunt Blix passed away and Marnie’s inherited the house and all of Blix’s unfinished “projects.” Of course, those projects are people who need help finding love too.

And, luckily for them, Marnie’s the right person to follow in her matchmaker footsteps and it’s time for everyone in the neighborhood to learn how to love love

Whatever Happens, Love This Book

I’ll be honest with you – I don’t usually rant and rave about romance novels. I don’t reach for feel-good books. But this book? It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read.

It was funny in the right spots, heart-warming in the right spots, and even included just the right amount of heartbreak to make it 100% believable. 

The quirky, complex characters were completely to die for. No one was perfect, not everyone was likable, and every single character was overwhelmingly realistic. Maddie Dawson knocked it out of the park with character development! 

And this book ended up feeling like a hug. It was so warm and it made me believe in the power of love. Heck, I’d even say it made me believe in magic. 

And it kind of made me want to move to Brooklyn!
