Miss Gwendolyn Brinley accepted a temporary paid companion position for the Newport summer season, believing it would be a lark to spend the summer in America’s most exclusive town. She suddenly finds her summer turning anything but amusing when her employer expects her to take over responsibilities as an assistant matchmaker. Tasked with the daunting prospect of attaining advantageous matches for her clients, Gwendolyn soon finds herself in the company of Mr. Walter Townsend, the catch of the Season, but a gentleman Gwendolyn finds beyond annoying.
A Match in the Making is one of those books that keeps you smiling long after you read it. Set during the Regency era, Gwendolyn is tasked with the job of matchmaker for the lady she is a companion for. I’ve so enjoyed the trials and mishaps that she finds herself in as she is determined to find Walter a match. Gwendolyn was such an interesting person to get to know. I liked her no nonsense but also kind attitude. I think she would have made a good friend. I love getting a chance to be a part of her and Walter’s friendship. Walter’s children are simply adorable and full of energy. I couldn’t wait to see what else would happen. I believe that Walter was the character that had the most growth. If only these characters were real!
Jen Turano writes entertaining books that have relatable characters. It’s a fun escape into a world much different than ours.
