About the Book:
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?

❤️ Give everything you have to love. It’s the only thing that counts. ❤️
After reading the Matchmakers for Beginners and being so happy for Marnie and Patrick I couldn't wait to see how their story ends. I devoured this book. It's a quick read, and it's easy to get sucked into the characters and to care about them. I love that it shows romance and parenthood in a natural light, it is real and raw and wonderful. The book is an amusing, heartwarming tale...the prose is effortless and polished. The characterization is spot on with a cast of characters that are quirky, fun-loving, wary and supportive. And the plot is an irresistible blend of humour, heart, hope, tender moments, family, friendship, tension, attraction, chemistry, self-discovery, happiness, taking chances, and the healing power of love. Overall, A Happy Catastrophe is pure magic.
