"The Match Maker" by Karey White

The Match Maker
(The Husband Maker Book 2)
by Karey White

The Match Maker is the second book in Karey White's The Husband Maker series. Also available: The Husband Maker (read my blog post). Coming soon: The Wife Maker.

This book blast and giveaway is brought to you by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.

It’s been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart.
In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it’s time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is left feeling more alone that ever–at least until the charming Scotsman becomes more than just a safe, rebound guy and teaches her that maybe, just maybe, she can dare to open her heart again.

Featured Review
I fell in love with Kyle in Book 1 and was shocked to read the ending. This book picked up about 6 months later. Charlotte still has a broken heart, but is finally ready to move on. She makes a deal with her friend, Aleena--if Aleena will agree to be set up with her best friend, Angus, then Charlotte will call Flynn, the Scottish tourist and offer to show him around. What better way to really get over a broken heart than by match making?
I really don't want to give too much away. I thought this book had some great twists that I didn't see coming. I loved the setting and the characters--strong, sweet, clueless, funny, jerks and all. I'm dying to see how things end up! I think we're in for another ride, but there is a chance this last book in the series could end up the way the reader thinks it will. For me, the ending was a mild cliffhanger, unlike the one in Book 1. Things aren't resolved at all. Another great book in a fun series!
