Billionaire Sam Hudson has pretty much lived his life with no apologies because he tries never to do anything that he's sorry about…except for what he had done in the past to Dr. Madeline Reynolds. Many years and regrets later, Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying Maddie's best friend and the two of them are forced to be civil. But Sam wants to be more than polite, and he wants another chance to make things right...

48-year-old Nantucketer Dabney Kimball Beech has always had a gift for matchmaking. Some call her ability mystical, while others - like her husband, celebrated economist John Boxmiller Beech, and her daughter, Agnes, who is clearly engaged to the wrong man - call it meddlesome, but there's no arguing with her results: With 42 happy couples to her credit and all of them still together, Dabney has never been wrong about romance.

What would have made The Matchmaker better?

The story was simply dumb and the writing was very poor! The continual "he said and she said" over and over.

Would you ever listen to anything by Elin Hilderbrand again?

Maybe?

Did Erin Bennett do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Considering how boring the characters were the narrator did the best she could do with them.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Huge disappointment!!

Born in the slums of Brooklyn, in the first year of the 20th century, Willie Sutton came of age at a time when banks were out of control. If they weren’t taking brazen risks, they were shamelessly seeking bailouts. Trapped in a cycle of bank panics, depressions and soaring unemployment, Sutton saw only one way out. So began the career of America’s most successful bank robber. Sutton became so good at breaking into banks, and such a master at breaking out of prisons, police called him one of the most dangerous men.
