Overview

Cherie, a professional matchmaker from Dublin, Ireland, faces the ultimate challenge when she tries to find a soul mate for herself. She surfs the risky waves of the Internet and flies around the world to adventures, disappointments and not a few surprises. Chat-rooms prove to be intoxicating, and Cherie feels like in a kid in a candy store. Among the Lotharios she encounters are recycled bachelors, breezy islands of ego, fly-by-nights, birds of paradise, commitment phobics, and the odd sex maniac. She learns the hard way that it's easy come, uneasy go at this smorgasboard of cyber-dreamboats.
Her story is an intriguing read, offering a revealing glimpse into the world of cyber romance for singles that are toying with the idea, for those who haven't dared yet, or those who just want to compare notes. It also discloses practical advice for modern day's mate selection through the eyes of a dating expert, both on the Internet and in the real world.
With insight and great humor, Siggy Buckley tells the sassy story of a modern woman's dilemma of being independent yet longing for coupledom.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review - Bethany's Shelf
It's easy to throw other people at each other, but it isn't so easy for yourself. "Next Time Lucky: Confessions of a Dating Guru" follows Cherie, professional matchmaker who takes on the very difficult case of finding someone for her.

Don't miss Next Time Lucky, a fascinating piece about love and life from the perspective of an ex-matchmaker. If you've ever considered a dating service, online dating sites or even being set up on a blind date, then this is a must-read! Wildy entertaining with an ending you'll never forget.

Former matchmaker par excellence - or Dating Guru as the Irish media liked to call me- I was born in Germany. Having achieved a Masters Degree in English, I got married, had two children and then emigrated to Ireland with my family for the GOOD LIFE.
Involuntary life on an Irish farm produced a crop of misgivings and the break-up of our marriage. Single again, I launched a dating service in Dublin which eventually planted the seeds for this novel.
I'm now happily married and live in the USA.
I write for American Chronicles and Opednews. I write a blog that deals with my previous life on an organic farm. It's called
