About the Book"When her perfect relationship is revealed to have been fake, an aspiring photographer must make amends. Imogen "Mo" Finch blames her single status on her ability to read people's auras--rose gold for love, teal for heartbreak; no one wants to be with someone who knows their feelings without being told. Mo's mom also has this ability and, ironically given her daughter's nonexistent love life, works as a professional matchmaker. For the last year, Mo has been pretending on Instagram that August Tate, a boy she met once who lives on the other side of North Carolina, is her boyfriend. After Ren Kano, her real-life crush, and his girlfriend break up, Mo stages a breakup with August so she'll be available if it turns out that Ren is interested in her. But when the real August shows up at the bakery where she works with best friend Gemma and asks why they're not still together, her elaborate web of lies threatens to unravel. Then, as Mo gets to know August as an actual human being, she starts to fall for him for real. At the same time, Mo is struggling with her application to a prestigious art program. Many readers will relate to Mo's difficulties bringing her artistic visions to life and will root for the characters to find their happy endings. Ren is Japanese American; other characters default to White. Fans of sweet romances with a light magical touch will enjoy this story of personal growth."--Provided by publisher.

When the perpetually single daughter of a magical matchmaker reconnects with the boy she's pretended to be in a relationship with for over a year, she may finally have met her match.
Imogen Finch has never been in love... despite being the daughter of a matchmaker. Her only relationship to date was a fake one with a near stranger named August Tate that she made up to stop people from asking about her love life. To fill the void, she's channeled her obsession with love into her passion for photography, using her ability to literally see the rose-gold glow of a person in love to capture stunning portraits.
But when her adviser says her photography portfolio is "one note", she's desperate to diversify. After hearing her forever crush, Ren, was recently dumped, she decides to photograph the broken-hearted, starting with him. Imogen is hopeful she'll finally find love and get the right photos. So, the last thing she expects is for the real-life version of her fake boyfriend to show up in town asking why they "broke up". Before she knows it she's juggling August and Ren and falling in love for the first time in her life.
