About Emma the Matchmaker
Emma Woodhouse is happily single, though that’s never stopped her from making matches for others. Her best friend, George Knightley, thinks it’s a sure way to trouble, but what’s wrong with giving romance a little nudge?
George has been fighting his feelings for Emma for years, but with families so closely intertwined, rocking the friendship boat would complicate more than just their relationship. He won’t do that to her, or ask why she keeps cuddling up next to him on the couch to watch their favorite show at night.
When a matchmaking scheme gone wrong drives a wedge between them, the last thing they want is to face each other. But when Emma’s sister goes into labor and they’re the babysitters for the weekend, they’ll have to set aside their pride and undeniable chemistry to tackle diaper duty together.
A modern take on Jane Austen’s Emma with all the characters you know and love.
I don’t think I’ve read any of Rachel John’s books before. But after reading this one, I’ll for sure be reading more. I loved the light, happy, romantic feel of this one!
Emma is such a great character. I loved the way she cares for her grandpa, every day. She lives with him. But Emma has some flaws, things like not being able to cook and constantly wanting to set everyone around her up. I loved the way she kind of discovered herself as this book went along. She was able to work on some of her weaknesses and be just a bit better by the end of the book.
I loved George too! It’s always my favorite when the reader is able to see the situation from multiple points of view. That just makes it a more complete picture. Reading George’s point of view was always fun. I loved how he always looked out for Emma. Sure it might have been under the guise of being her sister’s brother-in-law, but it was obvious that he cared for her. I also loved the way he cared for the residents of the nursing home where he worked. And the way he didn’t know quite as much about Emma as he thought he did.
The plot of this one is cute. It’s a quick read that you won’t want to put down. Perfect for a fall afternoon!
I won an e-copy of Emma the Matchmaker from the author. All opinions are my own.
