Maggie O'Mulligan is determined to find a wife for her good friend Dominic.  The good lord knows that he needs someone to take care of him, and it isn't going to be Maggie.

Charlie Kennelly is determined to find a husband for his good friend Julie.  She needs to get back into the dating game after getting dumped by her no-good fiancee, and Charlie just can't make himself fall for her.

Acting as chaperones after hooking up Dominic and Julie, Charlie and Maggie can't seem to leave each other alone.  Is this really a case of opposites attract with 'Slob of the Year' Charlie and 'I have the rest of my life planned out on my Palm Pilot' Maggie?

 

It took me a while to get used to the narrative voice that Ms. Markham uses for this novel (third person omniscient/present tense if you were dying to know), but it added to the overall quirky tone of the book.  Maggie and Charlie's story sucks you in, and doesn't let you go.  I couldn't stop reading even after the clock struck midnight, and later.  This is definitely a book you should not start when you are planning to go to bed within the next hour or so.  This was a magical story about two people looking for love, just not for themselves.
