can i see you againSummary:

From the author of The Someday Jar comes a witty and warm novel about a matchmaker who’s an expert at matters of the heart—except when it comes to her own… 

Matchmaker Bree Caxton has a 98% success rate, a book about to hit the stands, and an amazing boyfriend. Until, that is, he gets cold feet about their future and runs from their relationship.

Afraid no one will buy a book on love from a woman whose love life is a mess, Bree begs her one matchmaking failure, Nixon Voss, to pose as her boyfriend. But when they become a hit with readers, they must carry on their charade just a little longer. Fortunately, they’re both having fun…

But then Bree’s ex decides he wants her back and a newspaper presents a challenge that could expose the truth about her rocky love life. Now she must find the courage to embrace what is, or risk losing something much bigger than her reputation: her heart…

Review:

Hmmm. This was a bit of a tough one. I thought the concept was really interesting – a matchmaker writing a self-help book while she unexpectedly finds herself single just before the big book release. But it became clear from pretty early on that this book was going to be extremely predictable, cliché, and just too over the top with coincidences. And it also got a little tiring of the constant mishaps and drama. For a while I could try to play into it, but even at the end with the house lien situation – it honestly didn’t make sense to me what happened there besides another play for drama and hysterics. I think the concept was there and the writing in general was strong, but it was all just too much.
