It's Got to Be Perfect: the memoirs of a modern-day matchmaker

It's Got to Be Perfect: the memoirs of a modern-day matchmaker - Haley Hill I received this book as a gift and felt it was very well written.

If you are a fan of British based chick lit then you are in for a lovely surprise, it's a great example of how this genre has matured. It is a vivid portrayal without too much cheesy jokes about matchmaking.

The characters are well crafted, the main character is likeable and no where near as ditsy as I expected from the first chapter (which almost turned me off five pages in - very glad I persevered) Definitely more than two dimensional cliches. I felt the style is light and humorous throughout which makes it an easy read. I enjoyed the slighter faster than usual pacing, it moves from one point in time to four years ahead which gives the story a nice reflective quality.

Nothing too surprising in the end but that is not a bad thing - sometimes you want a nice bit of cake instead of salad as a treat :)
