When Rose unexpectedly ran into a person she hadn’t seen in forty years, she was shocked and a little delighted. Tyler Masson was a handsome man and he proceeded to woo Rose – and within a matter of only four months, Tyler had proposed. But it wasn’t as easy as that – Rose’s three children, Laura with husband Andrew and two small children; and twins Nat and Emmy – were completely against the new man in their mother’s life. And Tyler’s daughter Mallory and son Seth had family issues themselves.
When Rose’s sister Prue became involved with a voice of reason, the family were at odds. What would happen to this woman who wanted and deserved some happiness in her later life? In trying to make her children happy, was it possible for Rose herself to be happy as well?
An Unsuitable Match is my first by author Joanna Trollope and I was impressed. My disgust and anger at the twins was such that I realized it takes a good author to evoke that kind of emotion in her reader! Emotion, drama and childish behaviour bordering on sulking and tantrums from adults who should know better filled this novel. I am assured there are probably families out there such as this one – I hope I never have to meet them! My favourite character was Prue, who certainly wasn’t a main focus, but she was important. I have no problem recommending An Unsuitable Match to fans of the author, as well as of contemporary fiction.
The prose is polished and astute. The characters are well-developed, genuine, and troubled. And the plot is a compelling, heartwarming ride of life, love, self-discovery, familial dynamics, second-chance romance, aging, support, honesty, and friendship.
Overall, An Unsuitable Match is a sophisticated, moving, relatable tale that highlights the highs-and-lows of committing later in life and reminds us of all the struggles and challenges of trying to combine and blend families together.
