Book Summary:

The Husband Maker

Charlotte’s a girl with nicknames. She may not love being called Charles or Chuck, but the hardest nickname to take is the one she was given in college, the one that’s followed her now for too many years. They call her “the husband maker” and sadly, it fits. Every guy she’s dated since high school has gone on to marry the next girl they date. Not two or three girls down the road. The very next one.

Is she doing something wrong or is she just cursed?

When Kyle Aldsworth enters the picture and sweeps her off her feet, Charlotte begins to hope that maybe she’s not destined to be single forever. A senator’s son with political aspirations of his own, Kyle’s wealthy, handsome, and in need of a wife. Will Charlotte be disappointed yet again, or will she finally be able to make a husband for herself?

The Match Maker

It’s been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart.

In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it’s time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is left feeling more alone that ever–at least until the charming Scotsman becomes more than just a safe, rebound guy and teaches her that maybe, just maybe, she can dare to open her heart again.

The Wife Maker

Charlotte has spent years as the husband maker, sending every guy she dates off to enjoy marital bliss with the next girl he dates. But things have now changed, and she’s determined to use her husband-maker abilities one last time–on herself. And she finally knows exactly who she wants.

Angus has loved Charlotte since they were teenagers, but he’s tired of waiting for her to realize how good they could be. She’s broken his heart one too many times, and it’s time to move on with his life. Maybe a position halfway across the country will be just what he needs to get over her. But when Charlotte won’t let him go without a fight, Angus has to decide if he’s willing to let her in again or if she’s too late.

I loved this series. And I loved the covers for the individual books. I’m not as big a fan of the cover art of the boxed set. I do, however, think this series is best read together, one right after the other. Here are my reviews of each book:

The Husband Maker

I’ve wanted to read this book since I first heard about it. But, with what I heard, I also knew I didn’t want to read it until I had all three books in hand (I believe the second had just come out when I heard about this book). So it’s been high on my to-read list since the third book came out. When the boxed set (kindle version) went on sale last week, I jumped at the chance to buy them. So far I am loving the series. I like the conversational style of the writing. I like seeing the relationships in this book, those already in place as the ones that develop. I also liked how places they went and things they did were described. This book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger…but luckily I had the next one ready to read as soon as I finished the first one, a great benefit to reading the “boxed set.”

The Match Maker

As I started reading this book, I realized that perhaps at least part of the reason I like these books so much is that I am very much like Charlotte. I even read a paragraph aloud to my husband that I thought perfectly described me. I feel like in this book Charlotte does a lot of growing and learning. It is definitely a bridge between the first and the third book. And I look forward to reading the third book. In these books there have been things I expected and things I haven’t. And there have been beautiful descriptions that make me want to experience/visit some of the same things/places.

The Wife Maker 

In this book we get Angus and Charlotte’s points of views. I liked that. I loved Charlotte’s courage and willingness to sacrifice, and her determination. I liked the advice Angus’s parents gave him. This was a wonderful conclusion to the series, and I didn’t want it to end. I look forward to reading more about Aleena and Flynn, which was hinted at in the author’s message at the end. Throughout the series I liked how the flashbacks/memories were incorporated. This was a great series, and definitely one that was best read as a whole.

Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
