Matchmaking for Beginners Reviews
Definitely made me think of Hallmark or Lifetime movies.
Matchmaking for Beginners was a meh kind of book. Not boring but not really exciting either. Out of all the characters, only one was really my favorite: Blix. She is into all of this magic stuff, whether its getting people to fall in love or some tumor healing on herself. She was just full of spark and spunk and I love every second of her in this book.
Besides her, you will also meet Marnie. She's meh in all sorts of ways. She annoyed me con ...more
DNF because this is so boring.
Matchmaking for Beginners is a nonsensical, overly sappy romance novel that features a incoherent story coupled with insufferable characters.
Maddie Dawson's Matchmaking for Beginners was unexpectedly delightful. Just when I think that I've been disappointed by too many books lately, along comes this little gem, and yes I live for these delicious surprises. What most compelled me was Dawson's writing style; it's engaging, witty and it hits the right tone. I enjoyed how so much wisdom about love, life and death was dispersed with humor and lightheartedness, coming through even clearer because of it.
There's so much heart in these charac ...more
Delightful "kindle first" eBook for May. I tend to lower my expectations somewhat when I download a book for free and I become giddy when free downloads turn out to be good or great. I am now a fan of Maddie Dawson and I am giddy to have found this book. In Matchmaking For Beginners, Dawson takes a fun look at the intuitive powers that apparently some people have in finding love for other people. Marnie is a twenty nine year old who can see sparkles and feel love blooming around her but she defi ...more
MATCHMAKING FOR BEGINNERS walked straight into my heart, trailing a shower of golden sparkles. Dawson has created a magical world inhabited by characters so engaging and real it seems plausible they might drop by for a cup of coffee. By turns funny, wise, and poignant, this is a story about falling in love—with the painful, messy, joyful business of living.
Not at all what I expected, but a wonderful story nevertheless.
I expected a cheesy comedy about matchmaking, but what I got was a touching, mildly amusing story about someone finding themselves and helping a few others along the way.
No sex (at least not the vulgar kind), no violence (just the pissed off wife kind) and only a couple of dirty thoughts make this a good read for those who like a "feel-good" story.
3.5 ‘Matchmaking for Beginners’ by Maddie Dawson is the most fun book I’ve read so far this year. With a great deal of levity, Dawson offers up some serious themes like living life on your own terms, death with dignity, hope springs eternal, and love comes calling. A good dose of humor sparkling with a measure of woo-woo becomes a delicious recipe for depth and fascination in Dawson’s new novel.
My favorite character is Blix Halliday, an eccentric older lady at the end of her life. At her niece, ...more
