Review of Match Me If You Can by Michele Gorman - Five *


Ever thought about recycling your ex?
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.


I love Michele's books and this is a wonderful book. It follows the lives of 3 housemates/friends as they traverse the rocky roads of love. It is a clever idea to have a dating agency that requires you to complete a questionnaire at the same time as your ex. So you know where you went wrong. 

It was so funny at times - especially the story of Sarah. I felt for her when she was practically on her knees with tiredness!

But i loved the way they all learned so much about themselves and what they really wanted. Unexpected choices were made and eventually what was obvious to the reader became obvious to the women!

The last chapter wrapped it all up very nicely, if a little briefly - think I would have preferred more details about Sarah, but that's just nit-picking. Overall it was a funny and moving read :)
