Sage Fowler is an orphan in her uncle’s house when one day she goes into his office and he tells her she is going to the matchmakers in order to be matched. Sage does not want to spend the rest of her days married to an aristocrat. She horribly botches the interview with the matchmaker and ends up having to go and apologize so as not to ruin her cousins chances of being matched with a suitable partner. When she does so she is hired as an apprentice matchmaker to help manage all the candidates for a matchmaking event that is held once every five years. Along the journey she becomes a spy for the army escorting their troop of girls to the nation’s capital.
It has been a long time since I have stayed up until five o’clock in the morning to finish a book. I loved the two main characters of the book, Sage and Ash were so engaging in how they went about finding the information on the various players in the schemes to upset the royal family from their position of power.
