Book: Match Making for Beginners
Author: Maddie Dawson
This is my 104th read for the year.
We are working so much at moving and painting in our house that I am drilling through these audio books to pass my time!
This is the story about Marnie. She thinks she has found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. At a party to meet his wealthy parents for the first time, she is humiliated. An older aunt named Blix, pulls Marnie to her and they quickly become allies.
When Marnie's marriage falls apart, she moves home to her parents to try and figure out what she wants to do with her life. As she starts a relationship with an old boyfriend, she receives a letter from Blix's lawyers that she has left her New York house to Marnie in her will. Bewildered on why a woman she met twice would do this, Marnie travels to New York to try to figure out Blix's reasoning and to figure out what she wants to do with her life. There she meets the renters in Blix's building and starts to realize where she wants to belong.
This book isn't literature. Not even by a long shot. It is as cheesy as a Hallmark Christmas movie. It isn't deep and Marnie is just an okay character. The things she does in this story aren't great. Some of the lines that are written in this book are so bad, you can't help but shake your head. However - it kept me painting and kept me entertained while we were remodeling, so I will give it that.
However - if you are looking for a story about love and life changing decisions - skip this one.
