Review: Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst

Kate has given up on love—at least for herself. She is both blessed and cursed with the ability to sense a romantic connection between two people—a gift that her family passed down for generations. When Kate launches her own matchmaking company, Kinnection, with her two best friends in a cozy New York town, she has to put aside her own romantic disasters to make her business a success.

But when a furious man stalks into her office and accuses her business of being a scam, Kate is given the ultimate challenge to prove herself. Slade puts himself in her hands and asks Kate to find him love. Enraged at his arrogance but stubbornly eager to prove herself, Kate agrees, dedicating herself to the journey of finding him love... only to find herself falling for him along the way.

Spicing up a fun romantic storyline with some magical powers (that ironically involve a unlucky-in-love heroine bringing soul mates together), the author delivers a light and enjoyable read. A promising start to a new series but I struggled to connect deeply with either Kate or Slade. They were not the most likeable of characters at some points in the novel, particularly in Slade's treatment of Kate and her unrealistically quick forgiveness of him as well as her conclusion of love for the guy when he has treated her poorly. Nevertheless, it had all the elements of romance and the author's polished writing skills leaves the reader interested for more in this series.
