"When All Options Fail"
A matchmaker develops inconvenient feelings for his client's match in this charming story by Loan Le, author of A PHO LOVE STORY.
When I was 21 years old, I was hired by a luxury dating service in New York City to work as a matchmaker. (Why? Your guess is as good as mine.) I was terrible at it; I just didn’t have that magical sense of intuition I needed in order to envision chemistry and compatibility. Miles, the sweet and sensitive matchmaker at the heart of this week’s tale, does. I adore this short story by Loan Le, who’s an editor at Atria Books by day and an author by night. She published her debut YA novel, A Phở Love Story, in 2021, and its companion novel, Solving for the Unknown, will be out in 2023.
With characters that leap off the page, a picturesque New Hampshire setting, and a fresh take on matchmaking, “When All Options Fail” will brighten your day.
