Marnie MacGraw just wants an ordinary, domestic life with a husband, kids, and a minivan in the suburbs. Marrying the man of her dreams is wish come true for her. But when she met Blix Holliday, her fiancé’s eccentric matchmaker great-aunt who’s dying, everything changes. Just as Blix told her.
When her marriage comes to its miserable end two weeks later, Marnie is still shocked. This was even more so when she discovered that Blix left her Brooklyn brownstone and all her unfinished “projects”—the heartbroken, unconventional friends and neighbors who are desperately in need of happiness. Marnie doesn’t believe she’s special but Blix knew that she was the perfect person take over her matchmaker calling.
Blix was also right about the things Marnie has to learn the hard way: love is not easy to recognize and the ones who push love away are the ones who often need it most.
