While much of the action takes place in the workplace or at a home group Bible study, readers may notice more than a slight resemblance to Jane Austens Emma. A woman, the youngest, who is left at home to take care of dadbaby himwhile the other sister(s) are married and have kids. A woman who is more determined to see others make a love match than to make one of her own. A woman who claims not to be looking for love and marriage, but who might just find a guy who understands and loves her after all in spite of her flaws.
There is much to enjoy in Miss Match by Erynn Mangum. The characters are fun and lighthearted. There are tons of movie references. (If you love romantic comedies, youll spot some favorites mentioned here I have no doubt.) It is a Christian romance novel, and readers may notice the emphasis on courtshipwith the intention of marriage as the end resultinstead of the typical modern dating style. It is the promising start to what could be a new series. Rematch, the sequel, will be released in October 2007.
