The Perfect Match by Katie Fforde

Reading a novel by Katie Fforde is like going for a relaxing walk in the country. Her novels are always charming and delightful, and The Perfect Match is no exception.  I think that it is one of her best novels yet.

The Perfect Match features two stories - Bella's and Alice's.  Bella, the young and likeable heroine, left her last job because she was in love with Dominic, a married man.  Now she is engaged to her boss, Nigel, but she has doubts.  When Dominic, now divorced, moves into town, her conflicted feelings increase.  She is also puzzled by what Nigel's strange behaviour in the real estate agency.

Bella lives with Alice, her godmother, who is 60 and has never married.  When Alice meets Michael, she starts thinking about romance again.

Fforde combines the two plots in a masterful way.  I especially liked the touch of mystery and excitement.
