“A wise man once said that, when you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start straight away.”– Portia MacIntosh
Thirty-one-year-old matchmaker Lola James had it all – until she broke her leg at a wedding and discovered that her so-called ‘best friend’ was suddenly too busy to call, her flat had far too many steps, and her boyfriend replaced her quicker than you can say ‘crutches’.
And so she’s back at her parents’ B&B, sleeping in the living room (she can’t get upstairs) and having her hair washed by her mum (she can’t get in the shower).
Freshly single and with a lot of time on her hands, Lola is only too pleased to run into gorgeous Dr Will, an old friend who has definitely improved with age… And then there’s Dean, a divorcé who’s convinced he’s better off alone – no matter how lonely he is.
Can Will help mend Lola’s broken heart as well as her leg? Can she help Dean find love? As a wise man once said, sometimes the one for you is right under your nose, all along…
This was such a cute, light hearted book that had me laughing out loud. The characters were are very likable, despite their flaws.
Not to mention the character growth and development that is presented in Lola. I absolutely love character development and how her attitude went from pitty party, hating that she had to come live with her parents. To absolutely loving it and finding out not only who her real friends are but also who she is and wants to be.
The way the author describes the setting makes you feel like you are really sitting there with the characters.
However, Lola has a few love interests. First her boyfriend Patrick- who is a complete tool- who *spoiler alert* doesn’t last. Then there is her old high school nerdy friend, turned to sexy local Dr. Will. Then there is Dean, the divorced and damaged police officer.
Overall, it is a very light hearted read that will have you laughing one minute and swooning the next.
