  • Adorable rom com with dramatic emotions

    What happens when the matchmaker specialist set out to make a match for herself? You need to read The Matchmaker Bride by Ginny Baird to know the details. It was a adorable rom com with some dramatic emotions. Small town romance sweetness combined with enemies to lovers sharpness in this story.The story started pretty well and I was excited to see how this zing between Derrick and Meredith goes. She has come to Blue Hill and she is stuck with him in his cabin. The possibilities were endless and I was enjoying the simmering slow burn. But then came families. Don't get me wrong. I love big families. The Albrights are a large bunch and I found spending lots of time with them rather than exploring their complex dynamic. Then came Olivia and everything became muddled. Meredith is such a strong and bright and loving woman. And Derrick is a real gentleman. He has a sexy side, a charming side, a witty side and a caring side. They spent a lot of time convincing themselves that Derrick wants to go back to Olivia and ignoring their feels. A lot of unnecessary complications and they were dragging the story down. It slowed the pace a bit. That ending was all about grand gesture and I was happy with it! If you are looking for a light hearted rom com, The Matchmaker Bride by Ginny Baird is worth trying. I reviewed an early copy voluntarily received through Netgalley and Entangled Publishing

  • A really wanted to love this book...

    I really wanted to love this book - I loved the first book in the series and full expected this one to build on that. Instead, I had great difficulty connecting with the characters and couldn't connect with their story. Truly, I put down this book so many times that I seriously considered just not finishing it. Fans of the author will probably enjoy this one, however, this one wasn't for me.

  • Fun, flirty romance

    The Matchmaker Bride is a delight to read. This fun and flirty story has a fake relationship, lots of family, and perhaps the start of a second chance...if the matchmaker can get her targets and her own longing to cooperate. Ginny Baird’s characters always have such depth and goodness that it’s hard not to fall in love while reading her books. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from NetGalley. Most highly recommend.

  • Very cute, but read previous book first!

    This was very cute. The author notes it’s a stand -alone but I’m so glad I read the first book (The Duplicate Bride) because I honestly think I would have felt as if I was missing something if I hadn’t. I really enjoyed the world and cast of characters the author created - I could happily read a book about any secondary character featured. All that said, while this book didn’t change my life, I would most likely read another set in the same universe. I received a copy of this book from Entangled Publishing. All opinions are my own.

  • Enemies to Lovers

    It was so much fun to return to Blue Hill in this book. Meredith and Derrick meet in book one and get on each other's nerves from the start. The tension was high for sure and had me so excited for this book. Meredith is a matchmaker in Boston and is super close to an opportunity to expand her business when she is publicly put on the spot about her own love life. The only thing she can picture when this happens is Derrick, despite the way they got along in the past. To cover up her white lie, she heads back to Blue Hill and makes him a deal he can't refuse in thanks for helping her. I love the setting in coastal Maine and Derrick's large family. I loved being able to see familiar characters from book one. As much as I love these two together, there were a lot of plot points that really did not work for me. Enemies to lovers is always great and there is the added idea of fake dating, but they really don't fake it for anyone as they are in a remote area and the press shows up just once when Meredith isn't even there. Plus there's a bit of a love triangle in there which I'm never a fan of. While they have met in the past, this felt a bit too much like insta-love for me which I just have a hard time believing. This is very much an open door slow burn that I'm not convinced fully works towards the end result. That being said, i did enjoy the book. Like book one, it reads like a rom-com movie. It was quick read that provided a pleasant escape which is what I was looking for. I am a fan of Baird's work and look forward to more from this author in the future. 3.5 stars Thank you to Entangled for an ARC of this book. The opinions here are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
