'I thoroughly enjoyed this smart, feel-good read. It's witty, sharp and has real depth to it, and I love that even though it's uplifting, it doesn't ever shy away from the realities of life.' - BETH O'LEARY, bestselling author of The Flatshare

An emotionally charged, funny and warm novel, perfect for fans of THE MAN WHO DIDN'T CALL by Rosie Walsh, SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL by Giovanna Fletcher and IT STARTED WITH A TWEET by Anna Bell.

For Caitlin Carter, love means business.

She's taken matchmaking back to basics. There is no swiping left. No creepy location tracker. Definitely no unsolicited pics of areas of the anatomy no one wants to see. She's made dating great again: personal, patient... and profitable. Her startup is going from strength to strength, with clients wanting to find the love she has with her own husband Harry, and she even has celebrities wanting to use her services...

Caitlin is living the perfect life.

Except it's all a perfect lie. And Caitlin doesn't know how long she can keep it up.

In an era of social media and dating apps, when we have never been more connected yet more isolated, The Matchmaker is a story about love, loss and loneliness, and learning to accept your reality.

'I absolutely adored The Matchmaker - It's such a skilful, nuanced and thoughtful exploration of the full complexities of love - and the way that all of the different people who love us make us who we are. It's refreshing, uplifting and brilliantly observed.' - DAISY BUCHANAN

MEDIA REVIEWS
I thoroughly enjoyed this smart, feel-good read. It's witty, sharp and has real depth to it, and I love that even though it's uplifting, it doesn't ever shy away from the realities of life. -- Beth O'Leary, bestselling author of The Flatshare
I absolutely adored The Matchmaker. It's such a skilful, nuanced and thoughtful exploration of the full complexities of love - and the way that all of the different people who love us make us who we are. It's refreshing, uplifting and brilliantly observed, it's a very smart look at how Millennials have grown up and the impact our obsession with perfection has had on our lives. -- Daisy Buchanan
I absolutely loved The Matchmaker. It completely swept me away. It is fun, hopeful and heartbreaking, and I cried more than once! -- Lia Louis, author of Somewhere Close to Happy
Funny, sad and painfully relatable, The Matchmaker is a gorgeously written tale for our times about finding love and losing it, and keeping up appearances. Catriona's writing is full of heart and soul, and I can't wait to see what she does next. -- Stacey Halls, bestselling author of The Familiars
A fresh, funny and clever read -- Gillian McAllister
A witty, wise story about accepting your own reality * Woman & Home *
Full of fun, laughter and sucker-punch emotion, we guarantee you'll fall in love with this brilliant debut * Fabulous, Sun on Sunday *
...there is real emotional depth in this uplifting and deceptively thoughtful meditation on love and friendship. * Sunday Mirror *
This is a wise, witty and emotionally-charged story about the complexities of love, loss, isolation and loneliness. It'll make you laugh, cry and feel grateful for the people you care about most * Heat *

“Hidden gem”

This was a surprising gem of a book, it sounded interesting from the blurb however the story was far better than I anticipated and well told from the perspective of Caitlin who is the Matchmaker of the title. The... More

“Just Not For Me!”

Unfortunately, I just didn't get the gist of this one. The blurb appealed, but the book seemed to be very different.

Caitlin has her own matchmaking business. She has had successes, but none so great as her own... More
