What planet is this version of Nantucket on? I'm all for originality, but these names are just flat-out tacky. I'm pretty sure a Mary or a Fred could live on Nantucket too, Ms. Hilderbrand.
Okay, now that I've got that off my chest, let's talk about the actual story.
Dabney, the protagonist, is an idiot. Without giving any plot points away, let's just say she was having obvious medical issues, which she chose to ignore...and for the dumbest reason.
This book has several narrators, and includes little asides, much like the film, When Harry Met Sally, where the couples Dabney worked her matchmaking skills on told their love stories. These asides are cute, and they give a great deal of background about Dabney in high school, in college, while pregnant, and every stage of her life in between.
It's clear, from the beginning of the book, where the plot is heading. There were zero surprises.
Elin Hilderbrand books are so hit or miss with me. I either really enjoy them, or I don't. This one, unfortunately, was a stinker.
I'd take a hard pass on The Matchmaker.
