This was a beautiful tale of two lovers, Chen and Mae Li who were kept apart not once, but twice. The first time because the matchmaker matched them with other people and the second time because Mae Li had become a matchmaker herself, and dedicated her life to helping others find their true loves.
With only 60 pages to the book, this prequel is a very short read, but does a beautiful job of introducing us to Mae Li (or Pearl, her adopted name) and developing our interest in her. I liked the pacing of the book. The twists and turns led Mae Li through some dangerous circumstances which were common for single women without home or family in her time. You’ll probably finish this short book in one sitting as it’s too interesting to set down before you’re done.
I am very much looking forward to reading more about Mae Li in the upcoming books in the series. If you enjoy clean romance and this series sounds like it might interest you, I suggest you read this prequel. I rated it 5 stars out of 5.
Thank you to the authors for providing a copy of the book through Ebooks for Review in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
