A touching new novel from bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand in which a woman sets out to find love for those closest to her—before it’s too late

Forty-eight-year-old Nantucketer Dabney Kimball Beech has always had a gift for matchmaking. Some call her ability mystical, while others—like her husband, celebrated economist John Boxmiller Beech, and her daughter, Agnes, who is clearly engaged to the wrong man—call it meddlesome, but there’s no arguing with her results: with forty-two happy couples to her credit and all of them still together, Dabney has never been wrong about romance.

Never, that is, except in the case of herself and Clendenin Hughes, the green-eyed boy who took her heart with him long ago when he left the island to pursue his dream of becoming a journalist. Now, after spending twenty-seven years on the other side of the world, Clen is back on Nantucket, and Dabney has never felt so confused, or so alive.

But when tragedy threatens her own second chance, Dabney must face the choices she’s made and share painful secrets with her family. Determined to make use of her gift before it’s too late, she sets out to find perfect matches for those she loves most.

The Matchmaker is a heartbreaking new novel from Elin Hilderbrand about losing and finding love, even as you’re running out of time.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Hilderbrand’s latest is surprisingly bewitching. Readers will be seduced and will feel their hearts pounding after reading the first few pages of this intriguing and bittersweet love story. Dabney’s journey to finding her own true love is full of the trials and tribulations one faces when trying to do what’s right versus what truly makes one happy. Readers are bound to remember this novel long after finishing it, and may require a box of tissues to cope with the story’s end.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ gold stars, Top Pick)

  • “Hilderbrand’s charming, poignant thirteenth novel chronicles what happens after a woman’s true love returns to her twenty-seven years after they’ve agreed to no longer be in touch…Hilderbrand’s narrative is thoroughly readable, with likable heroes and believably despicable antagonists…An engaging read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Hilderbrand has crafted another of her delectable beach reads, complete with a fairy-tale romance. And her depiction of a perfect Nantucket summer day will have readers inhaling a plate of Kumomoto oysters and downing a cold glass of good white Bordeaux right along with Dabney. Delicious.”
