What They Say
Best friends Catherine, Rachel & Sarah are fun, smart, successful and single – just like millions of women with a low tolerance for idiocy in their dates.
Mr. Right hasn't turned up yet, and Mr Right-Now isn't worth booking a wax appointment for. So when Catherine, London’s finest matchmaker, gets Rachel and Sarah to join her dating site where they can recycle their ex-boyfriends in exchange for an upgrade, they soon realise that anything could happen . . .
Three best friends, proving that sometimes it really isn't you… it's him.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed getting to know the three girls, they were amazing. How Catherine managed to face her ex and his new, younger girlfriend/fiancee every day was baffling, as they were partners at Catherine's dating website, you have to be brave to do that like. Rachel I loved, she was very ballsy (up until the end, when she turned into a silent wimp, my one fear for Chick Lit because GIRLS NEVER TALK TO EACH OTHER. They let things fester, with bad feeling, instead of just opening their gobs, sigh). By far my favourite character was Sarah. She was the most like me, bookish, indoorsy, happy to let the world outside fly past, until she decides to live a little. Mostly I enjoyed her interactions with her sister, Sissy. Sissy was a scene stealer! She was amazing. And she had me craving toast like you wouldn't believe. Seriously, if you read this book keep a toaster, a loaf of bread and a ton of butter handy.
Match Me If You Can wasn't what I expected but it was a fairly decent read, I enjoyed it, and getting to know the girls was a pleasure. Getting to know Sissy was the icing on the cake, she was genuinely just that awesome. The book may not have been as funny as I would have wanted it to be, because I do love an author who can genuinely make me laugh and Michele can do that, it's happened before, and I may have gotten annoyed at Rachel's antics, but that's just Chick Lit characters. They don't bloody talk to each other, do they? But I really did enjoy the book. The fellas feature were completely out of this world, and Alis was by far the most bizarre. Honestly, not only do you have to read this book to meet the wonderful Sissy, but Alis has to be seen to be believed.
