The Matchmaker by Natasha West


Recently divorced Scarlett Smith is looking to get back out there. She connects with an old lover and they meet in a park where they have an altercation over the mixed signals that Scarlett had got from the ex-lover. Cleo Hicks, a matchmaker, was willy-nilly an audience to the whole scene. Scarlett’s day just gets worse when she discovers Cleo and breaks her shades. Cleo buys Scarlett new shades and offers to find a match for her. Scarlett rejects the matchmaker route but after a series of terrible dates, reaches out to Cleo. As Cleo sets about doing her job, both women find that the biggest impediment for both of them is their mutual attraction – except that Cleo believes that her family has a curse – they are gifted at finding the perfect person for others but are doomed at love themselves.

Till about fifty-five to sixty percent, this book was hilarious. It was flowing well. It was funny. There were laugh-worthy situations and dialogues.

Then bam! it all went downhill for us when Cleo finally decides to move ahead with Scarlett – just to prove to Scarlett that the curse thing is true. There couldn’t have been a worse reason for surrendering to the attraction. After that point, we read through it because we’d already spent all that time on it. There was little redeeming the book or Cleo.

On the other hand, we really liked Scarlett with all her flaws.

This book is light and fun (at least up to a point).
