REVIEW for Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker

TITLE:         Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker

AUTHOR:    Marla Martenson

GENRE:       Humour

RATING:      4 Stars

Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker is one of those books - kind of chick lit -but in real life. In fact, I kept forgetting that this book was a "true" story instead of a novel.

Author Marla is so entertaining, real and honest as she details (in funny to funny minute installements) what life can be for a matchmaker - from both sides - the matchmaker's point of view AND the client.

What truly entertains in this book is just how "clueless" some of her clients trulye are - they seem to think that they are Richard Gere, when, in fact, they are more like Richard Klein - while they expect to be matched up with Julia Roberts types each and every time - amazing.

I felt like I was privy to some secret information and I loved it. The writing style is fun and breezy and the stories are DELISH!!

Hi, I am back from vacation! Miss me?
This book sounds great! Have you read - "You'll Never Nanny in this Town Again: The True Adventures of a Hollywood Nanny" by Suzanne Hansen
that was a great book too!

This book does sound interesting - I didn't even know there were matchmakers around these days.
