Review of The Lauren Holbrook Series by Erynn Mangum

Review by Kit (15)

Rematch (Lauren Holbrook Series, Book 2)
Miss Match (Lauren Holbrook Series, Book 1)
Miss Match, Rematch, and Match Point follow the life of twenty-thee year old, Laurie Holbrook, a coffee addict and chocoholic. Laurie has found her calling, and it's matchmaking. Although she is content to stay single and live with her dad forever, she devises complex schemes, including using brownies and blind dates, to match up everyone else she knows. After setting up her sister, best friend, singles pastor, coffee shop owner, and a few others Laurie realizes that her family members might have learned a few tricks of the trade from her and she’s their target. 

This is by far my favorite Christian author, and one of my favorite authors in general.  I love her writing style, and how she writes about Christianity without trying to (for lack of a better word) “preach” to you. These books are hilarious, and easy to relate to. Although Laurie (the main character) is twenty-three, it wasn’t weird at all reading about someone so much older than I am, it just seemed normal. But if you haven’t see The Princess Bride, and Pride and Prejudice I would recommend watching them before reading these books because they are referenced a lot!
Cool Beans: A Maya Davis Novel

Can't wait to read her newest book Cool Beans: A Maya Davis Novel.


Parents need to know:  These book are Clean Reads.  The characters are older (20's), though, and there is some kissing/dating.  For more details, go to The Lauren Holbrook series on Parental Book Reviews.
