What if Mr Right was just a click away?

Meet best friends Catherine, Rachel and Sarah.

Yet to find Mr Right, they’ve been settling for Mr Right Now.

But when Catherine, London’s finest matchmaker, gets the girls to join her dating site where they can rate and recommend their ex-boyfriends, they soon realise that anything could happen . . .

There’s someone for everyone, right? These best friends are about to find out for themselves!

Match Me If You Can is a fantastically entertaining story, full of some dating disasters, and good friendships. 

However for a group of three friends, I found that I was warming to Sarah's and Rachel's stories a lot more than Catherine's and at times I forgot Catherine was even there. That isn't to say I disliked her, just wasn't too sure about her. 

Catherine runs a dating website called where in order to join it you have to not only bring an ex to join, but also write each other dating assessments, to give yo a chance to become a better boyfriend/girlfriend in future relationships. 

Catherine lives with Sarah and Rachel. Rachel is an architect who works alongside her ex, as they work together on the firms biggest ever pitch. Sarah is a bit of a free spirit, who designs wedding cards for a living, and also tries to be the best sister she can be to Sissy. Sarah is also a fabulous baker, and some of the descriptions were making me hungry. 

Sissy is to me the best character in the story, I loved her toast obsession, and she is just so kind hearted and its great seeing her develop. 

Sarah and Rachel both join Catherine's site and seeing the changes they make to themselves as they start dating new people are interesting. Also Catherine has to deal with working with her ex's fiancee who is a challenge. 

This is a typical Michele Gorman book, a lovely easy to read story, with a lot going for it. There was even a reference to a past book which made me smile.  However I felt that the ending was slightly abrupt. I honestly thought there was more to say before the epilogue came around. 

Thanks to Notting Hill Press and Avon for this review copy. This is my honest opinion.
