Even though Mom's might get annoying on occasion and we fight them tooth and nail--especially when they have decided that they want their child (who is no longer really a child) to get married! Both Karen and Mark have Mom's who have decided to become Matchmakers on their respective child's behalf!! Only problem is--well you guessed it--they finally give in and agreed to 3 dates ONLY.

Both are relationship shy having been badly hurt when within previous relationships--but 3 dates? No problem--they thought!! These two fight their own battles within their minds and swear never to see each other again--numerous times--

Will their Mom's prove to know best? Read this LOVELY and well written book to find out!!


When their mothers become matchmakers, entangling them in a series of dates with each other, Karen and Mark must each decide whether to entertain the idea of a “marriage of convenience,” or to hold out for an increasingly unlikely marriage based on love. 

Since breaking with her last boyfriend, Karen has refused to trust any man her age. For the past three years, she has not dated the same one twice, and only one in ten has received even a goodnight kiss as she turned him away. Karen is an artist. She follows her feelings, lives in a cluttered loft, and gushes over vivid sunsets.

Mark still dreams about his almost-fiancĂ©e, and his date book has been empty since he threw her out a week before he’d planned to ask for her hand. His friends call him the “Ice Man,” since he seldom smiles, especially at a woman. A math professor at the College, logic guides his behavior, he loves order, and an elegant proof is a thing of beauty.

Both Karen and Mark have all but abandoned hope of ever falling in love, and, left on their own, these opposites would never attract. So, their mothers become matchmakers, entangling them in a series of dates by extracting promises that Karen and Mark will go out together three times, suggesting that, in the absence of love, a “marriage of convenience” is a live option.

If you enjoy heartwarming stories based on true-to-life behaviors, with complicated relationships and a less-than-certain outcome, this book is for you.

This sounds like a lite, interesting and fun book. I will enjoy reading it as I imagine most people will. Sometimes I like to sit back and read a book without turmoil and trouble.
