Blog Tour: The Match Maker by Karey White + Giveaway




Welcome to our stop on The Match Maker tour for Karey White. This tour is hosted by I’m a Reader.  I had the pleasure of winning a copy of the audio of book one in the series, The Husband Maker from the author and truly enjoyed it.  So I'll try to sprinkle in a little bit in my review without giving away anything.  Warning, you may want to stay away from the book summary below. Especially if this series is new to you.

(Summary contains spoilers if you have not yet read book #1 The Husband Maker) 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.

The Husband Maker is book 1 in this series by Karey White.  I was first introduced to this author by entering a random giveaway on Facebook.  I never expect to win anything and out of the blue I got a response that I won an audio copy through Audible.  I love listening to books on my ride to work every morning, so I was excited to add it to the playlist.  The storyline of The Husband Maker was very unique.  Charlotte, is faced with the fact that in recent experiences, those that she has dated, has ended up married, just not to her.  Thus the nick name the husband maker.

As we move into today’s feature, book 2 the Match Maker, we find that Charlotte is off again in the world of dating.  Just when she thought she may have found the one, she really hasn’t.  But because Charlotte is who she is, there is always someone in the shadows waiting to fill that void.  This time, it’s the cute Scottish guy, Flynn.  Charlotte isn’t really ready to give her heart away again.  Or break the heart of another.  However, the encouragement that she receives from her friends and family pushes her to reach the unreachable.  If only she knew the one she was reaching for may not be the one that will hold her the tightest. 

I have to admit.  After listening to book 1, I had a good feeling for where this storyline was going.  Reading The Match Maker, confirmed that guess.  However, the best part of the book is when true love is revealed, even if it does come unexpectedly.   The ending of book two no longer makes it so predictable.  I’m unsure of where Mrs. White is headed in the last installment.  Overall, the rating would be a 3.5, but because she has crafted such a great love story, with such a clean romance approach I had to bump it up.  The characters and the events they encounter are truly realistic and set up a storyline that must be followed from the beginning to the end.  Will Charlotte find true love?  Or has true love found her?
