A Match in the Making | Book Review


Miss Gwendolyn Brinley accepted a temporary paid companion position for the Newport summer season, believing it would be a lark to spend the summer in America's most exclusive town. She suddenly finds her summer turning anything but amusing when her employer expects her to take over responsibilities as an assistant matchmaker. Tasked with the daunting prospect of attaining advantageous matches for her clients, Gwendolyn soon finds herself in the company of Mr. Walter Townsend, the catch of the Season, but a gentleman Gwendolyn finds beyond annoying.

Walter is reluctantly in search of a wife for his unruly motherless children. What he wasn't expecting was Miss Brinley, who turns his quest for a new wife into a complete and utter debacle.

The more time they spend together throughout the Newport Season, the harder it is for Gwendolyn to find Walter a wife when she realizes his perfect match might be . . . her.

USA Today bestselling author Jen Turano's trademark wit, sweet romance, and hilarious mischief will keep you turning the pages of this lively Gilded Age tale.

A fun start to a new series from Jen Turano!

Spending the summer season in Newport, Miss Gwendolyn Brinley takes on the responsibilities of assistant matchmaker. Of course, she has a knack for seeing matches among the eligible members of society—except not for Mr. Walter Townsend, the season's most eligible gentleman. He needs a mother for his children, though he may not be ready for another wife, but as she spends more and more time with him, it becomes clear that she might just the person he needs—well, clear to anyone other than Gwendolyn and Walter.

As the oblivious couple faces hilarious situations and sorts through surprising feelings, A Match in the Making makes for a delightful read. Turano has yet to disappoint me with her lighthearted, heartwarming historical romances, and I am eagerly looking forward to seeing more matchmaking in this new series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
