Laurie Holbrook is inspired to play matchmaking after successfully introducing her sister to the man she marries. Laurie is now on a mission to marry off her friends all the while maintaining a firm commitment to remaining single herself.
Laurie’s neurotic yet loving Dad is one of only a cast of wonderful off-beat characters which include Laurie’s closest friend Brandon Knox and her new co-worker Hannah aka Beach girl Barbie!
As Laurie discovers she can’t always foolproof her plans, she also learns that friendship can come when you least expect it and that God ways might just be perfect after all!
Erynn Mangum’s delightful debut novel has well-placed quotes from The Princess Bride and Pride and Prejudice which make it a special treat! MissMatch is bursting with humour and engaging characters. Laurie’s heart in “helping” her friends is evident thoroughly investing the reader in the outcome of her marriage plotting! The development of Hannah as perceived through Laurie’s eyes is beautifully done as are the personalities of the guys in the story, Brandon and Ryan. Laurie’s personal revelation towards the end of the book leaves the reader (especially this one!) anxious to know what Erynn has in store for her in Rematch, releasing October, 2007 by Th1nk Books (NavPress).
