Sophie Go's Lonely Hearts Club: 12/16/22

Sophie Go's Lonely Hearts Club

Sophie Go's Lonely Hearts Club by Roselle Lim and Annie Q (Narrator) (2022) is set in Toronto, primarily in a luxury apartment complex where a group of elderly friends live. Sophie Go has moved in to make her mark as a matchmaker. She has to work fast because she only has so long to reapply for certification after leaving Shanghai in disgrace.

Sophie Go's best option for making a name for herself is the Old Ducks Club, a group of elderly bachelor men. She can see their red threads and overheard them talking about wanting more from life. On a dare, she offers to match one of them for free.

All of Roselle Lim's books seem to be in the same world as they follow the same rules. The most important rule is that matchmakers don't have a red thread. They are supposed to be neutral in love, to keep their minds and hearts focused on their clients' needs.

From Vanessa Yu's Magical Paris Tea Shop (2020), we know that matchmakers can get their red threads back and they can fall in love. Sophie Go has to come to realize that she is deserving of love.

Four stars
