Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–7—Polly is a hopeless romantic whose favorite books are Pride and Prejudice and Anne of Green Gables. This summer she has decided to adopt her version of the speech patterns of Austen and Montgomery as she strives to find the perfect—in her estimation—romantic partner for her older sister, her best friend's father, and several others, whether they are interested in meeting someone or not. Her attempts at matchmaking have disastrous results for the participants while providing a few chuckles for readers. The book is much too long for the plot and the faux speech gets very old very quickly. The characters, even 12-year-old Polly, are one-dimensional. It would be difficult to find an audience for this book as Austen/Montgomery fans would find it silly and those readers looking for a light comic romance would not wade through it for the little humor and romance it contains.—Nancy P. Reeder, Heathwood Hall Episcopal School, Columbia, SC

Meet the Author

Lindsay Eland knew she wanted to be a writer ever since fifth grade, when she won an honorable mention for her book "What Can You Learn From a Giflyaroo." The book received rave reviews and was highly acclaimed among her family members. Sadly, with only ten hard-bound copies produced, the book is now out of print. (Skip tumultuous adolescence when she aspired to be an actress on Broadway, a ballerina, a singer, a nurse, and a dental hygienist.) After getting hitched to a wonderful guy she met in college and having four kids in four years, she decided she didn't have enough to do, so she began to write again with the passion and determination that always marked her character. You can visit her at lindsayeland.com.

    Matchmaking fun

    Polly LOVES books, especially romantic tales like Pride and Prejudice and Anne of Green Gables. Polly realizes that the world would be a better place if romance lived on as it does it books. So she decides to change the world. She decides that her sister's boyfriend isn't good enough for her. She decides that her best friend's father should not look for love on the internet, instead she will find a suitable woman for him. She also decides that she will pair up two unhappy singletons. She can work on her matchmaking skills while out delivering goodies from her parents' bakery. Will love blossom in the air or stink like her sister's burnt bakery creations?

    A cute tale that made me crave chocolate croissants and other goodies. Polly is sweet, funny, and hopelessly out of touch with her world, which only makes her more lovable. A great novel for tween girls or anyone who loves matchmaking!
