Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker by Marla Martenson
Marla Martenson is a matchmaker. There are people out there who just don't have time to play the meet, greet, and then date game. They go to Marla, explain what they are looking for and want in a relationship, and she does her best to match them up.
Being in Beverly Hills though is more of a challenge. Silicone Valley and high rollers, they want only the best and are willing to pay for it. Marla charges quite a sum for her services but then again, sometimes what they request can be quite challenging.
It's quite amusing what some of these folks desire in a match, and the emails she receives from real clients will have you rolling in laughter. But she does make some matches, and it is a true story of what she does. Marla is juggling her own marriage at the same time, her insensitive boss, and the high demands of the clients. Funny, entertaining, and a look at what egos and self-indulgence can do to a person as well as the joy of finding that successful match.
