Official blurb from Amazon
Thirty-one-year-old matchmaker Lola James had it all – until she broke her leg at a wedding and discovered that her so-called ‘best friend’ was suddenly too busy to call, her flat had far too many steps, and her boyfriend replaced her quicker than you can say ‘crutches’.
And so she’s back at her parents’ B&B, sleeping in the living room (she can’t get upstairs) and having her hair washed by her mum (she can’t get in the shower).
Freshly single and with a lot of time on her hands, Lola is only too pleased to run into gorgeous Dr Will, an old friend who has definitely improved with age… And then there’s Dean, a divorcé who’s convinced he’s better off alone – no matter how lonely he is.
Can Will help mend Lola’s broken heart as well as her leg? Can she help Dean find love? As a wise man once said, sometimes the one for you is right under your nose, all along…
Lola’s life begins when her social and romantic life in London ends. Learning the fragility of friendships, her broken leg finds her returning to her childhood home and the care of her parents.
Once home, we meet the charismatic Dr Will who Lola remembers from school as an awkward geek who was never comfortable around girls. Luckily, Lola was always kind to him and is flattered when he remembers her. However, Dr Will is now drop dead gorgeous and interested in learning more about the adult Lola.
As Lola worked in the matchmaking industry when she was in London, her mother encourages her to help a mismatched group of locals find love. Included in the group is policeman Dean whose sister begs Lola to take in hand as he’s lost his spark since his divorce.
The story unfolds with a lovely blend of romance and comedy with twists that may not seem obvious at first. Can Lola find happiness from helping others and, just maybe, find love?
I really enjoyed the easiness of this story and finished the book in one sitting, Portia has definitely found the recipe for a lovely romantic comedy.
