My review - What a wonderful, funny, lovely story!
In this story we meet Ellie, she has recently broken up with her fiancée and has been going on a few dates but she is not clicking with anyone. Then she decides to start a matchmaking agency, to help other people find their one true love. But she wasn't expecting to match herself with one of the guys who sign up.
What I liked about this story is that about halfway through it does a time jump, 3 years to show how her business is getting on and how she is getting on with her new man. Also the customers she set up and how they where doing 3 years later after signing up to her matchmaking business.
I loved the character of Ellie, she new what she wanted to do and wouldn't let anyone stop her.
I also loved the character of Mandi, she was my favourite in this book as she was so hyper and bubbly she always made me laugh with her little one liners.
This was such a beautiful story that had me laughing and awwing all the way through, even when some times got tough for Ellie she was able to hold her head high.
I love how this story ended but I want more from Ellie and her friends as they where all interesting characters and I could read about them all for days.
