"a truly unique and important book on the best possible way to find the love of your life."

From Publishers Weekly
Professional matchmaker Martenson, who successfully landed her own soul mate, presents a chatty advice book that shows readers how to "stop searching and start attracting" your ideal partner. Though peppy, welcoming and entirely encouraging, there's much here that will ring familiar (you've got to love yourself before you can love someone else, "You cannot change someone"); Martenson also leans heavily on the "law of attraction" most recently popularized in Rhonda Byrne's The Secret, instructing readers to "identify what I do want" and then "expect, listen, and allow it to happen." Throughout, Martenson provides personal stories, anecdotes and exercises that reveal strategies for understanding and making the most of yourself, including plenty of self-affirmation and self-assessment. A Q&A chapter covers overlooked odds and ends and specific problems, such as how to impress over the phone, why sex on the first date is a bad idea, and whether it's permissible to slip out the back door "if my date is creepy." Entirely optimistic, if occasionally self-serving (an appendix on "How a Matchmaking Service Can Help"), this guide makes a dependable cheerleader for those falling behind in the game of love.

Successful Beverly Hills matchmaker Marla Martenson demonstrates how the Law of Attraction can help those on the prowl to find their soul mate. This is a fun, concrete, and practical approach to finding Mr./Ms. Right. While based on the principles of Lynn Grabhorn's best-selling "Excuse Me, Your life is Now", there is nothing "woo woo" about Martenson's approach. She combines practical advice, self-tests for the reader and amusing anecdotes in this delightful how-to book. She challenges the reader to decide what they don't want, name what they do want in a partner, feel it and then allow it to happen. One of the real positives here is that she tells readers to stop being the victim and take control of their lives. It is a practical book of empowerment. Concrete suggestions are given on how to make the person of your dreams appear in real life
