Matchmaking for Beginners was a cute book. It took me a little while to get into the story but thought it was cute none the less. I loved the character Blitz. I found her so refreshing and loved her carefree personality. I honestly think she made the story. Marnie the main character wasn’t my favorite, I felt like the lacked some depth and was continuously indecisive which was quite frustrating at time. Over all the book was cute but not one of my favorites. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thankfully I was able to read it for free through Kindle Unlimited.
Marnie MacGraw wants an ordinary life—a husband, kids, and a minivan in the suburbs. Now that she’s marrying the man of her dreams, she’s sure this is the life she’ll get. Then Marnie meets Blix Holliday, her fiancé’s irascible matchmaking great-aunt who’s dying, and everything changes—just as Blix told her it would.
When her marriage ends after two miserable weeks, Marnie is understandably shocked. She’s even more astonished to find that she’s inherited Blix’s Brooklyn brownstone along with all of Blix’s unfinished “projects”: the heartbroken, oddball friends and neighbors running from happiness. Marnie doesn’t believe she’s anything special, but Blix somehow knew she was the perfect person to follow in her matchmaker footsteps.
And Blix was also right about some things Marnie must learn the hard way: love is hard to recognize, and the ones who push love away often are the ones who need it most.
