Matchmaking for Beginners Reviews
ok. I wanted to love this. I really liked the idea of the plot. And ultimately that is what kept me reading. I wanted to know how it ended.
But I struggled with the writing. A lot. And I wouldn't say that I'm overly particular about that usually. But. It just felt amateur. The dialogue, especially, rubbed me the wrong way. It often felt completely implausible or stilted or a million other off-putting things.
Also. Marnie just annoyed me. Her name annoyed me. Her relationship with Noah? And Jeremy ...more
I loved this delightful story, the delightful characters, and the wonderful world view expressed. This is not a formula romance. The characters have the complex problems of the twenty-first century and the magic is brought about by positive thought and the personal growth we all experience over our lifetimes. This author has deep insight into the human psyche. Excellent read!
Matchmaking for Beginners is a nonsensical, overly sappy romance novel that features a incoherent story coupled with insufferable characters.

I love this book! I'm in love with the way this author writes. How she sees people and manages to capture all of them and put it on the page in a way that the reader can see them just as she does.

Whatever happens, love that!
Loved this novel! Marnie has a wonderfully messy life and when Blix steps into it, things get even more wonderful and messy. You will laugh, cry, and believe in magic again while reading this book! Simply delightful!!!
This book started promising but unfortunately it went downhill from there, the protagonist is an immature, self-absorbed and a cheater on top of it all, she hurts this actual sweet guy twice and the hurt she causes in his life is dismissed as “he was too boring and now he can find his true love” but the thing is that there’s nothing more boring than her, she’s the least exciting person in the book, every other character is more interesting and complex than her. My feelings about this book can be ...more
I ended up DNFing this book around 30%. It's not that it wasn't good, because I did enjoy the writing, but it was too much of an opening before getting into the story. 30% in and not much was happening and I got bored.
