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.

Meet the Author

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
"I once had a farm in Ireland" and you will find it at www.Inandoutofireland.blogspot.com.
I'm a proud new International member of the National League of American Pen Women:www.Americanpenwomen.org

I really enjoyed the flavor of Next Time Lucky. The story is witty and entertaining and the writing was fun and jovial. There is a Sex in the City flare with a Million Dollar Matchmaker similarity in a smarter package. I really got a kick out of the sharp dialog and the sarcastic undertone. I connected to the the characters from the very beginning. This fun little tale was hard to put down as I enjoyed all the clever comments and turn of events. While reading I became one of the girls and could relate on so many levels. This book is laugh out loud funny but still has a lot of heart and touching moments. "In the long run, I'm looking for somebody more stimulating and exciting." That really took the biscuit. And the biscuit took three years and only the threat of more intimacy to come out. Not being suitable or not being loved back is bad enough, but to say that I wasn't stimulating? Ouch. If I were a man, a remark like this might cause permanent ED. In this case, it was rupturing my soul."
