The Magic of Found Objects by Maddie Dawson

About The Book:

Release Date: August 1, 2021

From the bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners comes a feel-good story about becoming who you were meant to be all along.

Phronsie Linnelle was conceived at Woodstock in a serendipitous liaison between a free-spirited hippie and a farmer’s son and was born with magical wonder flickering in her DNA and rationality knit into her bones. All her life she’s been torn between the two. But now that she’s been betrayed by both love and the mother she once idolized, her rational side is winning.

So when her best friend from childhood proposes that they give up on romance and marry each other, Phronsie agrees. Who better to spend your life with than your best friend? Maybe the connection they already have is love. Maybe there’s no falling to be done. But immediately after they announce their engagement, she encounters someone who makes a very charming and compelling argument for revisiting romance.

While her even-keeled stepmother argues for the safety that comes with her new engagement and her mother relays messages from the universe to hold out for true love, Phronsie must look to her own heart to find the answers that have been there all along.

My Thoughts

I absolutely adored this book! All the stars in the sky for this one! That you so much to Suzy Approved Tours and Maddie Dawson for having me on this book tour.

When you are only a few chapters in...and you have to put down the run to GR to see what other books this author has..then you message two people to tell them...OMG I love this book...well you know you have a good book in your hands...yep I did that!

Phronsie has grown up with a less than typical family life...her parents met at Woodstock...yes the one and only...and her free spirited mom Janet...who calls herself Tenaj..which is Janet lacking a little in the "mothering" skills department...

Phronsie neverless with her less than perfect childhood is successful and ...normal..yet she just went on 44 dates and she can't find a match! So her lifelong BFF proposes they get married. Why not? Whatt? Do people really do this? Hmm maybe they do and they just don't tell us!

I LOVED everything about this book. The timelines that took us from past to present..the characters..I adored it all!! Phronsie have a place in my heart!!Now I am heading to Amazon to get myself Matchmaking for Beginners!! I love finding a "new to me" author! Thank you so SuzyApproved Tours for my gifted copy!
