Summary

A new heartfelt novel about the power of loneliness and the strength of love that overcomes it by critically acclaimed author Roselle Lim.

Newly minted professional matchmaker Sophie Go has returned to Toronto, her hometown, after spending three years in Shanghai. Her job is made quite difficult, however, when she is revealed as a fraud—she never actually graduated from matchmaking school. In a competitive market like Toronto, no one wants to take a chance on an inexperienced and unaccredited matchmaker, and soon Sophie becomes an outcast.

In dire search of clients, Sophie stumbles upon a secret club within her condo complex: the Old Ducks, seven septuagenarian Chinese bachelors who never found love. Somehow, she convinces them to hire her, but her matchmaking skills are put to the test as she learns the depths of loneliness, heartbreak, and love by attempting to make the hardest matches of her life.

A miss for me…

*Potential spoilers* I wanted to like this story. It was recommended in an article “books to read before they hit the screen.” I always enjoy books with topics about matchmaking and Chinese culture. But this was a tough one to get through. Toxic parenting at it’s worst. I hated the protagonists parents they were very cruel and selfish and it was hard to listen to. The protagonist spent most of the story submissive and was very self deprecating and even when she stood up for herself it was weak. The love story was minimal and felt like an afterthought. I enjoyed the Old Ducks Club they were entertaining and the narrator did a good job distinguishing the voices. I missed all of them getting their happy ending it felt like the author was tired of writing this story halfway through and just whipped out an ending and didn’t resolve everything. And the tragedy at the end was unnecessary I don’t feel like it helped the story or strengthened anything and I wish it didn’t happen. I won’t listen to this one again and if it does come to screen in some form I don’t think I would even want to watch it.

I love it all

This is the second book I've read by Roselle Lim. I highly enjoyed the first book I read by her, but I absolutely love this one. I couldn't put the book down. Best book I've read this year. Please write more!

Sophie Go is a matchmaker in Toronto. Even with her parents weighting her down, she is determined to be successful. I love her passion. I adore the Old Ducks that turn into her uncles. They are her first clients. The relationship she develops with each of them is beautiful. Sophie parents made me angry. Her dad made me more mad than the mother, but I'm not surprised by the ending. I only wish Sophie ripped them apart, but she has a kind soul. She recognizes that they are her parents. She is a good daughter despite what her mother thinks.
