Love is everything. It runs the whole universe.
May 1, 2018
" The subversive truth about love is that it really is the big deal everyone makes it out to be, and it's not some form of security or an insurance policy against loneliness. It's everything, love is. It runs the whole universe."
A very sentimental tale that weaves heartbreak, familial love, agape love, philia love and eros love with more than a dash of mystical magic mojo. Some may say too sappy (and they would be right), some would say too predictable (yes that too) but overall it was sweet and light.
It's the meringue of beach reads for the year.
Our heroine Marnie can "see things" , but she can't see that being dumped by her husband of 2 weeks is really the beginning of her big, BIG life that has been prophesied over her by Blix (her fiance, nee husband, nee ex-husband's crazy aunt). Hope that makes sense. The both of them (Marnie and Blix) send out vibes and receive them back, they kind of guide them to see who would be potential mates. Hence the Matchmaking moniker.
Throw in the fact that you have neurotic mothers and MIL's, a pregnant hormonal sister who seems to have it all and a terminal illness. Whew, that a lot of stuff to cram into a book.
This is book where you really suspend reality and laugh at the things that are obviously coming down the pike with more than a little foreshadowing. But I give the book four stars because it tugs at the heart and brings a little tear and some warm fuzzies too.
Very mild potty language and some non descriptive sex scenes make this one you could pass along to your mom without worry.
