Perfect Match by Zoe May ** Blog Tour Review**

Here's a warm welcome to Zoe May's Perfect Match today. It is just the thing to read on a January day.
Can you ever find true love online?

Sophia Jones is an expert in all things online dating: the best sites, how to write a decent bio, which questions to ask and the right type of photos to use. The only thing she’s not so great at? Picking the guys…

After sitting through yet another dreadful date with a man who isn’t quite what she expected, Sophia is just about ready to give up on the whole dating scene. But her flatmate, Kate, persuades her to give it one more chance, only this time she must create a profile describing her ‘perfect’ man.

Yes, he must look like Robert Pattinson and needs to own a multi-million pound business, but there are a couple of other deal breakers, too! So, when a guy comes along who ticks every box, surely there’s got to be a catch?

A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, perfect for fans of Catherine Bennetto and Rosie Blake!

My Thoughts

If you are looking for a romcom with a lot of heart, this one may be for you. You can't help but like Sophia as she tries to pick her way through online dating in the 21st century, searching for someone to settle down with. There are some genuinely funny moments. It turned out to be the sort of book which you just keep reading to the end. 

    Appearances can be deceiving. Fortunately, Sophia is a well- grounded individual who has genuine friendships. It takes her some time to discover just who is all surface and who is really interested in her as a person, Beneath the humour and the romance, there are some serious thoughts on the nature of love and what is important in life.  It is never overly serious though and Sophia finds herself taking a good, hard look at herself and what she actually wants from life. With a plot which fizzes along and some characters you really want to read about, this is a satisfying read.

In short: An entertaining and charming romcom.
