Book Review: The Woman Who Met Her Match by Fiona Gibson

After my disappointment with my last read, I chose a novel by an author I had previously read and enjoyed. I grabbed The Woman Who Met Her Match  by Fiona Gibson and settled down on the sofa to read the morning after Christmas.

Genre: Women’s Fiction, Romance


What if your first love came back on the scene . . . 30 years later?

After yet another disaster, Lorrie is calling time on online dating. She might be single in her forties, but she’s got a good job, wonderful children and she’s happy. This, Lorrie decides, is going to have to be enough.

That is, until she receives a very unexpected request from France. Antoine Rousseau, who had once turned a lonely French exchange trip into a summer of romance, wants to see her – after thirty years.

But Lorrie is a responsible woman. She can’t exactly run off to Nice with the man who broke her teenage heart . . . can she?

My thoughts: 

This book was the perfect novel for my mood as well as for my desire to read a story that was not too taxing and which would bring a smile to my face. The tale described the life of a woman in her forties, an ordinary woman who works at the beauty counter in a department store. The description of Lorrie and her experience read true and I could connect it to the lives of many women I have spoken to: dating as an older woman, raising children, connecting with an old crush. The novel encouraged that feel-good feeling that one experiences when watching a romantic comedy. Romance is sprinkled in the story and interspersed with the main character’s realisation about her romantic experience. I have previously enjoyed Fiona Gibson’s novels, and this one did not disappoint.

I give this novel ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 stars.
