Twenty-three year old Lauren Holbrook is single, lives with her dad and couldn’t be happier, but one of her favorite hobbies is matchmaking. Lauren never wants to get married, but she loves to see her friends find true love, especially when she has something to do with it. Her latest project is trying to match her coworker Ruby together with her Bible study teacher Nick. This proves to be a challenge, not only to Lauren, but to Ruby and Nick as well. Adding to this challenge is Lauren’s new found confusion about her plan to never get married.
Life has been a little stressful for me lately and I have found that I have not been enjoying heavy or serious stories much and I was looking for something light and more importantly, funny. Miss Match was the answer. I was absolutely delighted by this story, and especially by Lauren. Her character was such a treat and so very likeable. At first, I found her a bit annoying, but the more I got to know her, the more I wanted to read.
One of this book’s strongest points is the dialogue, especially the dialogue between Lauren and her best friend Brandon. They were very good friends, but their teasing was funny and natural. Lauren is sassy and funny and adorable.
Miss Match is the first book in the Lauren Holbrook series and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series one of these days. I think Erynn Mangum is a writer whose books I will seek out in the future. I really enjoyed Miss Match and I strongly recommend it if your life needs a little comic relief.
