4.0 out of 5 stars Good read but not spectacular, 9 Mar 2009

Having read all 3 other books in the Matchmaker series, I had high hopes for the final instalment. I am in two minds as to whether I enjoyed this book. I like the characters, I especially enjoyed the drama and tension toward the end of the story.

However, I found the plot sort of stale. Francesca as a character became terribly annoying, always dwelling on the past and having the same repetitive monologues with herself. In addition, she didn't seem the strong character she had been portrayed as in the other books. Rochford was enjoyable, as expected, yet hardly any of the story was told from his perspective and he made few appearances in the story. The majority of the text continuously recycled Francesca's reasons for finding Rochford a wife and ignoring her feelings for him, why no-one must discover her financial problems, yada yada. Then there are more pages of the same. It became tedious to read and I was tempted to jump ahead to the conversations between characters.

All in all, the book was satisfactory but didn't live up to the full potential of the characters. It felt dragged out, then rushed towards the end, and there were too few interactions between the two leads, which meant Rochford was given far too little page time.
