The Matchmaker is 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. In the book, 48-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 42 happy couples to her credit and all of them still together, Dabney has never been wrong about romance.

Elin Hilderbrand spent her summers on Cape Cod, "playing touch football at low tide, collecting sea glass, digging pools for hermit crabs, swimming out to the wooden raft off shore," until her father died in a plane crash when she was sixteen. She spent the next summer working, doing piecework in a factory that made Halloween costumes; she promised herself that the goal for the rest of her life would be that she would always have a real summer. She moved to Nantucket in July of 1993, took a job as "the classified ads girl" at a local paper, and later started writing. Hilderbrand's novels have all been set on and around Nantucket Island where she still lives with her husband and three children. She is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and was previously a teaching/writing fellow at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop.

Hildebrand's bestselling titles include Beautiful Day, The Surfing Lesson, Summerland & Silver Girl.
