ABOUT THIS BOOK
For Caitlin Carter, love means business.
She's taken matchmaking back to basics. There is no swiping left. No creepy location tracker. Definitely no unsolicited pics of areas of the anatomy no one wants to see. She's made dating great again: personal, patient... and profitable. Her startup is going from strength to strength, with clients wanting to find the love she has with her own husband Harry, and she even has celebrities wanting to use her services...
Caitlin is living the perfect life.
Except it's all a perfect lie. And Caitlin doesn't know how long she can keep it up.
In an era of social media and dating apps, when we have never been more connected yet more isolated, The Matchmaker is a story about love, loss and loneliness, and learning to accept your reality.
Emotional, compelling, and downright heartbreaking at times, THE MATCHMAKER by Catriona Innes is ultimately a story about accepting the past and learning to live again and to be open to those who love who best.
Caitlin is running her own business, helping people to fall in love and find their happily ever-after just like she did with her husband, Harry. This isn't some modern app but an old-fashioned matchmaking agency where Caitlin really gets to know her clients and feels that kick in her stomach when she finds their perfect mate. But with business slowing down, a celebrity client seems to be the answer to her problems, as well as sharing more about her perfect marriage with Harry. Except that Caitlin is living a lie. Her wonderful love story has changed and Caitlin has been lying to so many people. And as everything begins to spiral for her, will Caitlin admit the truth and have a real chance to move forward with her life?
From the cover, you could assume that this book is an easy, pick-up put-down read with plenty of laughs, but looks can be deceiving. There are moments of humour in this book but there is also a deeper, emotional element that is dealt with in a very sensitive and authentic way. I guessed the twist early on but that didn't take away from the characters or story and I cared so much for Caitlin and wanted to see her flourish from beginning to end. I'm warning you now, the tears they came a calling, so have your tissues at the ready when you sit down to read THE MATCHMAKER because you will definitely need them.
THE MATCHMAKER by Catriona Innes is about the highs and lows of love and life and will touch your heart in many ways. Catriona Innes certainly has a new fan in me.
Hello, I'm Features Director at Cosmopolitan where, in the name of investigative journalism, I have joined an undercover police force, worked as a Playboy Bunny croupier and - for one night only - performed a stand-up set with just two hours practice. It was all terrifying! But hopefully will all make it into a book one day (so will be worth it!).
