The Matchmaker's List by Sonya Lalli Review


One of my goals this year was to read more romance novels and I was lucky enough to receive a few from Penguin Random House Canada. The Matchmaker's List was a cute romance with endearing characters.

It was a nice change from my usual thrillers as it was truly an enjoyable rom-com. The characters were fun and interesting to read about and they create a humorous story that will tug at your heartstrings. 

I felt for Raina who wanted to pursue her own happiness but at the same time, didn't want to disappoint her grandmother. I feel she really went through a period of growth as she was trying to figure her own path in life. 

I loved how there was a lot of humour in this novel, especially on some of the dates Raina goes on. Kind of makes me feel relieved I don't have to take part in this dating lifestyle. 

As a debut novel with themes like romance, friendship and the pursuit of happiness, I applaud the author. I liked her writing and I look forward to her future novels. 

The Matchmaker's List is a perfect contemporary read to add to your TBR.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
Raina Anand may have finally given in to family pressure and agreed to let her grandmother play matchmaker, but that doesn't mean she has to like it--or that she has to play by the rules. Nani always took Raina's side when she tried to push past the traditional expectations of their tight-knit Indian-immigrant community, but now she's ambushing Raina with a list of suitable bachelors. Is it too much to ask for a little space? Besides, what Nani doesn't know won't hurt her...

As Raina's life spirals into a parade of Nani-approved bachelors and disastrous blind dates, she must find a way out of this modern-day arranged-marriage trap without shattering her beloved grandmother's dreams. (Reference : Goodreads)

Happy reading,
