There is room for only one matchmaker. How hard is that to understand? Joan, her new stepmom, Hannah, and Ruby have all stepped into Lauren's hobby. The victims of their meddling? Laurie and Ryan! After a brief kidnapping to Phoenix for shopping, chocolate, and Ryan talk, the only thing Laurie knows for sure is that she misses Merson's. A fake break-up is in order to throw the love hounds off their scent. With a botched proposal, dream-boat Keller Stone, and pushy relatives it's no wonder Laurie is going crazy.Can it really be that hard to plan a wedding in four weeks? Honestly, she thinks she can pull it off. Premarital counseling. New, tiny house. Ryan's love. What could possibly go wrong? Mangum finishes Lauries story with a flourish. While readers are pleased that Ryan and Laurie are coming together, it is also the end of a wonderful series.(Check out more of my reviews under TEEN REVIEWS at www.christianromancemagazine.com)
These are my absolute favorite books. I love how the characters feel like they are your own friends and you feel like you are in the story. Erynn Mangum has done a wonderful job showing God's glory through such a fun series.
Matchpoint, the third and final book in the Lauren Holbrook Novel series by Erynn Mangum, is a satisfactory ending to the series. Lauries matchmaking skills have paid offfour of the couples shes matched are now married, and its just time before another couple gets engaged. With all her friends married and her singles Bible study basically the couples Bible study now, theres no one left to matchmake. Whats a girl supposed to do? While Laurie is trying to find others to play Cupid with, the friends shes matched turn on her, and play matchmaker with her and her boyfriend, Ryan. Lauries not sure how she feels about that. One matchmaker is enough, and shes already got that role filled. To get away from the constant discussions and pressuring toward marriage, Laurie and Ryan pull a fake break-up. Its a great plan until Laurie realizes one very important thingshes in love. This book wraps up everything in the series. Some parts seem to drag a little, but its got the same fun parts like the previous novelscoffee, chocolate, and chick-flick quotes. If youve read the previous two books, the third one is a must.
