    Fun contemporary with enjoyable characters

    This was a really cute contemporary! I don't read a lot of contemporaries, but I always read Katie MacAlister's. They just make me too happy, and I laugh so much reading them - of course at inappropriate times like waiting rooms or at the library or when you're in the living room reading one while the rest of your family watches some movie that you don't care about at the moment. First happy note: Vandal and Fenice are back! As I mentioned before, I've read lots of this author's books. One of my favorites is Hard Day's Knight, which takes place in a Renn Faire with a jousting troupe, of which Vandal and Fenice are members. They were fun characters, and I was stoked to see them again. Keep being you, Vandal! Next happy note: The quirky characteristics of the male protagonist, Aiden Ainslie. I like reading about real characters. I can only handle reading about alpha males for so long before I get annoyed. Aiden had his own quirks and weak points, which made him utterly adorable to me. I'm not going to go into them because they play a good role in the book, but this was a definite plus for me. Another happy note: A smart female protagonist! Katie has lots of these in her writing, which I love. They all have faults, of course, but they aren't inherently dumb or play into any kind of ditzy stereotype unless there is a reason for it. Mercy is smart and curious and I really and truly relate. I always feared that I'd end up like the kid on the Pauly Shore movie, "Son In Law," where he's been in college for ages with no degree in sight because he keeps changing his major. Since I had limited funds, I didn't allow myself that option, but I would have. Mercy is the same way, except that she doesn't have her degree. She's fun and curious and simply loves to learn. She's not stupid, but she's ready to jump into something new, so she just sounds like somebody you'd want to hang out with. I'm not going to break down the plot for you. The blurb does a pretty good job giving you a synopsis. It's a really good plot, though. ;) I had a lot of fun reading this one. I enjoyed the twists and the great ways that they come about. It's an easy read, but it's not boring by any means. I didn't want to put it down - ever - and was very sad to see it come to an end. As a side note, this one is part of a series, but it stands completely on its own, too. You don't need to have read any of the others in the "A Matchmaker in Wonderland" series to make sense of this book. Really all the other ones do is give you a touch more background on some other characters that don't really play much of a role in this book. Some people don't like that, but it works for me. This way, I'm not bemoaning the fact that I don't have the next one in my hot little hands. Instead, I'm pleased that things are going well in their world and I'll visit with them later, when they're available. ;) Happy reading!
