Can I See You Again?
Summary: From the author of The Someday Jar comes a witty and warm novel about a matchmaker who’s an expert at matters of the heart—except when it comes to her own…
Matchmaker Bree Caxton has a 98% success rate, a book about to hit the stands, and an amazing boyfriend. Until, that is, he gets cold feet about their future and runs from their relationship.
Afraid no one will buy a book on love from a woman whose love life is a mess, Bree begs her one matchmaking failure, Nixon Voss, to pose as her boyfriend. But when they become a hit with readers, they must carry on their charade just a little longer. Fortunately, they’re both having fun…
But then Bree’s ex decides he wants her back and a newspaper presents a challenge that could expose the truth about her rocky love life. Now she must find the courage to embrace what is, or risk losing something much bigger than her reputation: her heart…
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I REALLY WANTED TO LOVE THIS BOOK. I did. It had all the things I like in my easy reading- cute cover, interesting concept, a sweet sounding tale, and on and on.
But this was just a like. Not a LIKE. Not a LOVE. Just a like.
Listen, I read a lot of these books- these not quite chick lit, not quite women’s fiction because I just want to read and be entertained. I like the cute-meet stories, etc.
But a whole lot of Bree’s problems could have been solved if she’d just OPENED HER DARN MOUTH AND SAID WHAT WAS ON HER MIND.
(I Know. We wouldn’t have had a book if she had done that.)
What I liked:
Cover. Nixon. The matchmaker angle.
What I didn’t love:
That Bree would not just say what was on her mind.
Bottom line: I expected cute, light and fluffy and it was those things. But I also expected to LOVE and it was just ok. However, as I read the book- I thought that I probably would enjoy it better as a movie- so here’s hoping!

Aw, sorry you were a bit disappoimted with this one. It sounded like one i would have liked too, sometimes you just need a light and fluffy book.
I think I just built it up too much in my anticipation because it sounded SO good. It’s still a fine read, though, just not as great as I thought it would be.
So hard to like a book when you are frustrated like that with the main character. I don’t read very many books like this, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for a good meet-cute you do recommend in the future : )
Right? I’ll try to think of some cute meet stories that are REALLY good 🙂 🙂 My mind is totes blanking right now.
