A Match in the Making (The Matchmakers)

We rated this book:


Jen Turano has written many historical romances, and her latest is the start of a new series, presumably about matchmakers falling in love. At least, I hope that’s the case for her upcoming books. It’s a fun premise, and if the other books live up to this one, they will be delightful to read.

Gwendolyn Brinley has no intention of marrying herself. However, she can’t escape the idea of marriage, as the matchmaker she has agreed to keep company for the Newport Season has insisted on naming Gwendolyn her assistant. Gwendolyn soon finds herself hired to find a match for a man considered to be the catch of the Season: Walter Townsend, who is eager to find a mother for his three rambunctious children.

Shenanigans ensue. Delight follows, first for the readers, then for the characters.

A Match in the Making was a great deal of fun, full of lively, interesting characters. Turano does an excellent job bringing the secondary characters to life. The worst that can be said is that those characters are a little one-dimensional at times, but I will gladly take that over a boring character. I’m very much looking forward to reading more of her work!
