"Dawson has created a truly quirky story, filled with a little bit of magic (think unicorn glitter and sparkles) and a lot of love...An optimistic, feel-good story that celebrates love, community, goodness, and the creation of family, however it might appear." --Kirkus Reviews

"In A Happy Catastrophe, author Maddie Dawson works magic on the page as she takes us into the life of bighearted Marnie MacGraw, a woman who can literally see the sparkle of love in the air. Marnie is surrounded by a constellation of vivid characters who, whether searching for connection or confronting loss, keep pressing on through the rich and wondrous catastrophe of life. A beautifully written testament to the tenacity of hope and the power of love." --Nancy Star, bestselling author of Sisters One, Two, Three

"If you enjoyed Matchmaking for Beginners as much as I did, prepare to be spellbound by A Happy Catastrophe--in which Marnie and the people closest to her discover that magic isn't getting what you want, but rather in loving what life surprises you with. Maddie Dawson is at the top of her game in this charming and unputdownable novel." --Camille Pag�n, bestselling author of I'm Fine and Neither Are You

"A triumphant tale about the redemptive magic of love--and the way life sometimes drags us through the muck before giving us what we never knew we wanted. Marnie is one of the most delightful heroines in contemporary fiction, and you won't want to miss her!" --Kerry Anne King, bestselling author of Whisper Me This

"I am a big, big fan of Maddie Dawson, and A Happy Catastrophe is one of those rare books--a sequel that is even more enjoyable than its stellar predecessor. In the follow-up to Matchmaking for Beginners, Maddie Dawson has taken her airy, madcap character on a walk through the hard work of not just falling in love, but staying the course with a man who has a few things to work out. And what results is a tale of great heart and insight--sprinkled with stardust and hope." --Barbara O'Neal, author of When We Believed in Mermaids
