Married at First Swipe by Claire Frost
Hannah lives life on the edge. Never one to pass up on a new adventure, she has truly been living her best life. But once the adrenaline wears off, she wishes she had someone to spend the quieter moments with too. Learning that her best friend’s online dating business has taken a hit, she comes up with an idea that just might solve both of their problems...
Jess has been with her husband for twenty years. They have a stable marriage, great kids and run their own businesses. But what looks like a perfect life from the outside has its own problems within, and with her business on the brink Jess can’t help but wonder where the spark has gone in her life, and whether settling down is all it’s cracked up to be.
When Hannah embarks upon her latest scheme: finding a man using Jess’s dating app and meeting him for the first time at the altar, both women start to realise the grass isn't always greener. Can Hannah help her friend save her failing business or will Jess stop her from making what could be the biggest mistake of her life?
In the modern tech-fuelled world of dating, is it possible to find true love?
When I read the premise, my first reaction was horror at allowing anyone to choose anyone else's spouse, but the operative word here is 'allowing'. Hannah was able to walk away at any time during the process.
But this book isn't so much about how you find your life partner, but what you do once you get them. Hannah and Jess's journeys and relationships are vastly different, but the message for both couples is the same - the need to communicate and to share.
