Reinventing Lindsey

by Maggie Brown

Studying the past hasn’t prepared Daisy Parker—anthropologist-turned-matchmaker—for her latest client. Finding Lindsey Jamieson-Ford a life partner isn’t exactly a simple exercise. Not only hasn’t Lindsey dated for years, the prickly reclusive scientist relates better with her robots than with people.

Lindsey has no idea what matchmaking involves when she hires Daisy. She’s never met anyone quite like the bubbly matchmaker and doesn’t know how she’s going to survive the infuriating woman. Now her life has lurched onto a roller coaster that just won’t damn well stop.

Guiding Lindsey through the courtship process is a challenge. Before the reticent scientist can move forward, Daisy has to teach her to leave the past behind. But another problem soon enters into the mix…How can Daisy stay detached when her body seems to be answering Lindsey’s mating call?

"Falling in love has always been a fascinating subject.

How do we choose our partners, why are we attracted to some people and not others? Is it random?

So, I decided to write a book about matchmaking and finding the right mate. It was a real learning curve for me.

Believe it or not, there is a science behind attraction. 55% is in body language, 33% in voice and 7% in choice of words. It’s far more complex than a witty pick-up line or choosing a date online. Body chemicals and genes play an enormous role in finding that someone special to spend a happy life with.

I get kinda attached to my characters when I write, and Daisy and Lindsey are two of my favourites. I felt a bit sad saying goodbye to them when I finished the book. I hope you enjoy their romance."

The Lesbian Review
I was intrigued by the blurb for Reinventing Lindsey (I’m a total sucker for matchmakers falling in love), so I leapt at the chance to review this one. Despite being into the premise, I was still pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it and I couldn’t put it down! I was totally engrossed by Lindsey and Daisy and the slow burn that crackles between them. Everything about the writing style worked for me.

    This book had me hooked from word one. It was so well written that it grabbed my attention and didn’t let go! I loved the premise, the characters, the slow build relationship… The story was just fantastic, engaging and interesting. This is a beautiful story and like any of Ms. Brown’s books, totally and completely worth the read!
