Series: Lauren Holbrook
Lauren sets out to introduce Nick, her carefree singles' pastor, to Ruby, her neurotic coworker who plans every second of every day. What could possibly go wrong? Just about everything.
The book begins as a modern day mimic of Jane Austens Emma, but progresses past this original premise to develop an attitude and action all Lauren Holbrooks. The more I read the book, the more I found myself drawn into the actions, events, and conversations of this borrowed social circle. The most striking aspect of Mangums book is her ability to push humor past the predictable. Many times, a slight twist in a predictably funny scene changed my quiet entertainment into genuine, out-loud laughter.
From beginning to end of Miss Match, Lauren sifts through everyone she knows to bring together the perfect couples. Her employer and long-time friend, Brandon, watches her attempts to set up Ruby and Nick with scornful amusement. Hannah, the secretary at the studio where Lauren works, also joins in. As Lauren watches her plans unfold only to crumple under the stress of everyday life and misunderstanding, she questions if it is her place to prod along other peoples relationships. Despite her uncertainties, Lauren launches ahead through extravagant evenings, failed dates, and even a fake relationship with Rubys brother to see her friends happy together.
It is through these elaborate schemes that readers meet the energetic, highly caffeinated Lauren Holbrook, known by most of the people around her as a quick-witted kindred spirit. Fortunately, Mangum incorporates a deeper, deliberative side to Laurens character as she struggles to find Gods will in her life. By the end of the book, these two sides merge to form a more mature, understanding Lauren Holbrook than the one presented at the beginning.
After reading Miss Match, I feel as though coffee with Lauren might taste better and that I would be comfortable going out to dinner with her friends. Unexpectedly, Mangums ultimate goal in this novel does not seem to be a condemnation for all matchmaking or even a rulebook for singles to live by. Instead, she challenges readers to think about Gods sovereignty in their own lives through Lauren Holbrooks friends, decisions, and cravings for caffeine. Natalie Myers, Christian Book Previews.com
