I bought this book based solely on the title without really knowing its significance. I just liked the sound of the word! Mackenzie starts dating men to see if they are suitable suitors for her mother, who is driving her nuts, as she keeps meddling in her life. The novel is fun, will make you laugh and glad you're in a relationship (if you are) and that your parents are still together (if they are!) It will also make you glad your mum doesn't live in the same town(if she doesn't!) A range of dates, occasionally nice, mainly downright awful, unfold and provide lots of laughs. If I had one criticism to make it would be that some of the dialogue on these dates was simply too far-fetched. Men looking for a date may not be particularly self-aware on many occasions, but they'd have had to be bonkers to come out with some of these one-liners. The parallel with Mackenzie looking for dates for her mother and questioning her own relationship with her live-in boyfriend is also quite intriguing and has an unexpected outcome. I found the dates themselves diverse and funny, but would have liked to have seen them gone into in more detail. If I had one other reason why I rated this 4 and not 5 star, it's because I thought it was a little too long, without exploring the secondary characters in a deeper fashion. I did, however, like Jeff a lot! The business idea and the outcome of that was also a nice little bonus. All in all, a great read, which will have you smiling a lot.

This is a very nice tale of a daughter trying to find a man for her divorced overbearing mother. Mackenzie has moved into a house with her boyfriend, just down the road from her mum, but her mum keeps calling round because she is lonely and also her mother doesn't like Mac's boyfriend. Mac decides to interview blind dates for her, in the hope she gets her off her back.

This was a nice twist on the "find a man" genre. Mum was very fussy with her dates and Mac had to sit through some dire ones.

I enjoyed this light hearted comedy. It was a nice read (can you tell I thought it as nice lol)

Well, if you like something funny to read, that will make you laugh out loud, and get you turning the pages quick smart, then this is the book for you. It's fast paced, witty, and full of handy tips on how to date, and how to find your Mother a date! It's a brilliant first novel, and I am looking forward to reading more from this author in the future. Highly recommended for an 'anytime of the day or night' read. :)

I was on holiday and needed a new book to read, and without wifi on my kindle was unable to have a look at any blurbs or choose a book that way. So pot luck prevailed, and I really enjoyed this book. It was actually really funny, and really easy reading. I really would recommend this, it's just a good fun book.

Ordinarily I can take or leave chick lit, unless I've already read something by the author that I particularly liked. The difference here is that the premise of the book caught my eye, and really made me want to read it as it's such a different idea. The idea of the main character, Mackenzie, trying to find a man for her mother is something I've never heard of before, and I really enjoyed it.

Mackenzie takes it one step further and vets each prospective date for her mother, before setting them up--at least that way she knows she isn't sending her mum on a date with anyone unsuitable. She looks for dates for her mother in all sorts of ways. She also meets all kinds of men, as you might expect, some of which would have been better off just crawling back under their rock!

I love the way the author writes, and it made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. I think Jaimie could write an instruction leaflet for flat pack furniture and make it entertaining! The dialogue between the characters is great and often very witty, and Mackenzie's asides to the reader are hilarious.

I have to admit that at times I wondered why Mackenzie was bothering helping her mother, who seemed determined to be irritating the whole time. I'm so glad my mum isn't like Eleanor! But even though she had a funny way of showing it, Mac knew her mum meant well, and in the end she redeemed herself.

All in all, this book is a very entertaining read and one that I'd definitely recommend.

It was the cover of this book that made me want to read it - it's attractive and understated. The premise also sounded good - a daughter doing her utmost to matchmake her somewhat demanding mother and failing (or so she thinks) dismally! The lead character, Mackenzie is also having boyfriend problems of her own. Dan is not as supportive as he could be, what's more, he dislikes Mac's mother intensely - tricky when she only lives a few doors up! A good, light-hearted read, the words flowed effortlessly. There's plenty of laughs too - some of the men Mac has to 'interview' (sourced from a variety of places, not least personal ads in the local newspaper) are truly horrendous, making for some very comic moments throughout. This is a debut novel, very well-written with good insight into a variety of characters - you can tell the author had fun dredging up the worst case scenarios. I have to say, the mother drove me mad too so I was able to identify complelety with Mac and how keen she was, in the nicest possible of ways, to offload her. Am looking forward to more from this talented author.
