Isabel Dalhousie is filled with joy from her new baby, but she's struggling with her four-year-old adapting. She's also starting to question her latest match as a matchmaker. Bea Shandon, an old acquaintance of Isabel's, comes into her life at an interesting time. Something of a matchmaker herself, Bea needs help investigating her newest potential match. Isabel welcomes the distraction and starts making undercover enquiries. Isabel learns more than she bargains for and her focus turns to someone unexpected. Isabel's intelligence, quick wit and deep empathy comes in handy as she grapples with issues of friendship and duties, honesty, and the importance of perspective.
