"Match Me If You Can" Book Review... back in February, Chelsea hosted a book swap and I'm 100% horrible and JUST finished reading my book. The deal with the book swap was to pick your favorite book, put a note in it and send it to Chelsea who then picked who got what book. Rachel sent me this book and here's what her note said:

"This book is a fun, easy read. There is not a lot of substance but it brings a smile to my face. Every time I read it I enjoy it more and more. To me, that's a sign of a great book!"

So first off thank you Chelsea for hosting the book swap and thank you Rachel for sending me "Match Me If You Can" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

I picked up this book quite a few times from February-May to start it but could never really get into it. Then this past Memorial Day weekend, I sat down to start and finish this book.

A quick review in my words, Annabelle is the family screw up and trying to start a matchmaking business. She scores a high profile client who is already signed with Annabelle's biggest competition. The book goes through all the mishaps, close calls and, of course, the love in the process. I must say it is pretty predictable but I still LOVED IT!

It is kind of slow moving at first but wow! The middle part of the book was great! I couldn't put it down, I'd say to myself, "I'll read to the end of this chapter," and then BAM! SURPRISE! and I'd HAVE to keep reading. This is what kept me up until after midnight!!! There is also a sub-plot in the book that I found equally as interesting. As I stated above, the book is predictable but I would definitely recommend it for a fun easy read.

Thanks Chelsea and Rachel!
