Book Review: A Happy Catastrophe by Maddie Dawson

A Happy Catastrophe by Maddie Dawson (Sequel to Matchmaking for Beginners, review here)

Genre: Romance, Feel Good

Bug Rating: 5/5

Overall: In a world full of chaos… we all need some magic ✨

Maddie Dawson’s sequel to Matchmaking for Beginners – A happy catastrophe provides just that #MondayMagic

We are back with Marnie, Patrick and of course fury friend Bedford, for the next chapter in their adventure!

Fast forward several years from when we were last with the gang, and although all the characters have grown, not a lot has changed and we are able to dive right back in where we left off – perfection! So much happens in this book, I am not going to spoil any of the plot but it was a charming, captivating and just so heart warming read!

Maddie’s writing is just as magical as the story and I love how Blix’s sparkle is hidden within the pages, within all of their lives .. “whatever happens, love that”

I totally lost myself in this book, it was just what I needed… it was full to the brim of love and magic … I’ve never loved characters so much. I am praying there will be another instalment 🙏🏻🙏🏻

In the mean time, I’ve ordered ALL Maddie Dawson’s previous books in the hope to find just a glimmer of the same magic from Marnie’s story 🤣 Thank you Maddie for my advanced signed copy – you made me feel SO special.

Have you read Matchmaking for beginners? Are you ready for some more magic? Out May 2020!


Marnie MacGraw and Patrick Delaney have been in love for a few years now, enough to realize that they are imperfectly perfect together. Still, there are some things that maybe need a little attention. Marnie’s ebullient; he’s brooding. She thrives on change; he prefers stability. She sees marriage and parenthood in their future, but he can’t see beyond the shadow of an earlier tragedy.

Then an eight-year-old surprise from Patrick’s past shows up on their doorstep, cartwheeling into their lives and spinning things in all directions. While it’s not exactly the change she envisioned, it looks like instant family to Marnie. But Patrick, afraid of being hurt again, retreats further into himself. Suddenly, two very different pieces of a beautiful puzzle find it harder and harder to fit. How can Marnie trust in the magic of the universe when it seems to be doing its best to knock her off her feet?

But some love stories are worth waiting for. And what’s love without a little chaos anyway?
