The Matchmaker Bride

Successful Boston matchmaker and television personality Meredith Galanes’s reputation is on the line. During a guest appearance on a morning talk show, she’s broadsided by questions about her own romantic attachments, just as she’s trying to secure a syndication deal. Afraid to admit her love life is a total disaster, Meredith blurts out that she’s seriously involved with a very special man—a boatbuilder in Maine. She never expects that small slip to get spun into a story about her supposed engagement.

Or that the paparazzi will track the guy down…

Derrick Albright is laid-back about many things. Being hounded by the press about some imaginary engagement to a woman he’s only met once—and couldn’t stand—isn’t one of them. Then Meredith actually shows up at his cabin in Blue Hill, Maine, with an apology, a pot roast, and a proposal—play along until she secures her TV deal, and she’ll help him win back his ex.

It’s a simple plan, but if they have any chance of pulling it off, they’ll have to survive each other first…

Each book in the Blue Hill Brides series is STANDALONE:
* The Duplicate Bride
* The Matchmaker Bride

My review:

The Matchmaker Bride had a really cute plot idea and a really pretty cover. I liked the start of the book too.

However once I started to get into the book I felt like I was disconnected from the characters. I think I missed some information about their past even though these books could be read as standalones.

I definitely would recommend reading the first book to get some of the missing bits and pieces.

This story also ended up having a slow pacing for me so it ended up being just an ok read. I wasn’t a fan of the plot between trying to get the ex wife back and that wasn’t due to it being a possible trigger warning.

This book was just an ok read for me. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review this.

This was a two star rating for now. This was not terrible, just not the right book for me after all.
