If you are looking for an entertaining and light-hearted read, THE MATCHMAKER'S MARK is for you. It is a love story with a hint of mystery, a dose of magic and a promise of more to come. There is a good, even pace to the story that makes you want to just keep turning the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more in the series. The book was provided to me, by the author, for review as a beta reader.
The author writes very smoothly, there aren't any choppy transitions. The reader will be left with questions, but it can be something to look forward to in the next books. The plot is very intriguing, can't say too much about it without giving something away. The author handles the idea of elves and match-making very well, almost makes the concepts believable to the reader. The ending was sweet and satisfying. This book is recommended to adult readers.
*complimentary review copy provided, this does not affect my opinion in any way*
Delightfully written and empathetic; reading this was like peeking over the shoulders of the characters and being part of each scene and locale. Heartwarming, encouraging, and inspiring, this is just the kind of story readers need to pick themselves up from a slump by getting involved in the characters' lives and backstory, and marveling at that most welcome touch of the paranormal. I don't often gravitate to light-hearted romantic fiction, but if this is an example of what I'm missing, I may just have to change my options. <smile>
"The Matchmaker's Mark" has themes that are so totally about magic; but there's no need for the reader to put aside disbelief. No, the sense of wonder is present from the very first sentence, and continues throughout the book. Magic just "is," and so there is no surprise to find elves, half-elves, humans, mixed up together; nor to discover a reality, so very much like our own, in which Otherworld soulmates are matched up by "The Matchmaker."
I wish I had read this book for Valentine's Day-next year I'll remember to do so. But don't worry-"The Matchmaker's Mark" is perfect reading for any time of year. If you're looking for paranormal romance, or if you're just interested because of the fantastic prose, well, get on over here and get this book-it's a keeper.
Lily is content with her life. As half elf/half human, it's difficult to fit into either world, so owning her own flower shop in Charleston, SC is good for her. She yearns to find her own true love some day, but with over-protective brothers and magic that is unstable at best, she doesn't hold out much hope.
Dare is a full wood elf who is personal guard to the infamous Matchmaker. His family isn't thrilled with his job choice, but it works for him. He's a bit puzzled, and more than a bit put out, when the Matchmaker sends him on a personal errand to hand deliver a letter to her niece, but hey, it's his job.
Amy is an English teacher. Along with her greyhound Guinness; she is combining work with pleasure by co-teaching a course with her best friend Maeve and staying in her house with her. Who could complain about spending January in Charleston instead of snowy Nebraska? Her whole life she has been receiving cryptic letters from her Aunt Camille that she thinks of as just her aunt being eccentric. She is about to find out that there is more to Aunt Camille's letters than meets the eye.
Lily, Dare and Amy's lives are on a collision course that will result in a little romance, a little magic and encounters with all sorts of creatures outside of the human realm.
The Matchmaker's Mark is a complete turnaround from Ms. Regan's Justice series. It's light and fun, full of romance, fantasy and humor. Ms. Regan couldn't write a bad book if she tried, thankfully she didn't try. Lilly and Dare live in a world of elves, werewolves, mermaids, trolls and other things that go bump in the night and are comfortable there.
Poor Amy is brought kicking and screaming into this world.Read more ›
