A Match Made in Heaven Feb 27, 2006
A Match Made in Heaven By Shari MacDonald Book review By Kelsey Taylor
This book was stunningly good. I'll be honest, I hate to read. The only book I've ever picked up to read on my own was Harry Potter, but this book was amazing. It held my attention to the very last page, and that's saying something coming from a person like me. Enough of me. Let me tell you about this book. A Match Made in Heaven (by Shari MacDonald), is not like your average love stories. Normally they go: sweet, quiet girl meets rebel boy, they fall in love right then and there, and then that's the end! This doesn't happen in this book. Lucy Salinger runs a fantastic match making business. She is very happy with her life, but recently she's been finding herself simi lonely. Lucy does want to love someone, but it's also difficult for her because of something that happened to her in the past. Then...HE walks into her office. This difficult to explain fellow. A man that can only have his inheritance if he is married by his 30th birthday, which is at the end of the month. A man that is handsome and charming and so kind, but he can't be real? Can he? Lucy is nervous about getting him a wife, because she doesn't want the women to get hurt. Is Campbell only using a woman to get his cash? As Lucy goes to tell him she can't help him, Cam decides to quit on her services. Lucy suddenly wants him to stay. Matching him up with disastrous matches to get him to stay with her match making...is she losing her touch, or is it her heart? I hope you find this book just as inspirational as I have. I've learned a lot about God, and how he helps us in what may or may not come in my life. I know life isn't perfect, but when all of these "love at first sight" books and movies are there, we sometimes forget, and this book is a wonderful reality check.
the perfect light, funny romance Feb 21, 2003
The last reviewer is truly out of her mind. If you don't like romance and humor, or if you're looking for non-stop action, then, no, this is not the book for you. (In fact, romance as a whole is probably not the genre for you.) But if you enjoy character-driven fiction, likeable and believable characters, witty humor, affirmation of loving family ties, and sweet, romance that sweeps you along to the very last page, you couldn't find a better story anywhere. I like romances, but unfortunately most of them aren't that smart. MacDonald's books are all extremely smart, in a wonderful way. This book is fabulous, as are the others in the series.
One's own dreams are better than this!!!!! Apr 18, 2001
This book is not one that you quickly get through. It is very slow and dull in both story content and happenings involved. I would not and have not recommended the book since I purchased it. Actually, I threw the copy I purchased out because I did not want to subject anyone else to the boredom! If you are one that likes slow moving and unreadable books, then this is the one for you. I did not find it the list bit funny or have any true emotion over the book at all -- except for the fact that it is a waste of money!
Hilarious! Nov 13, 2000
The absolute best of the Salinger Sister books. The whole "Rent-A-Yenta" concept worked so beautifully. She can help everyone else's lovelife go smoothly while hers is a riot from beginning to end. This is a definite must-read for anyone looking for a good love story with great laughs peppered throughout! The laughs range from slapstick to subtle. Very well done.
Excellent Book! Oct 14, 2000
A Match Made in Heaven was the best out of the Salinger Sister series. You'll find yourself laughing out loud at this hilarious romantic comedy! You won't be able to put it down. You'll also enjoy: Love On the Run (the first book in this series) and The Perfect Wife (which is the last in the series) This was an excellent book!
