Synopsis: How far would you go to find THE ONE?
One simple mouth swab is all it takes. A quick DNA test to find your perfect partner – the one you’re genetically made for.
A decade after scientists discover everyone has a gene they share with just one other person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love. Now, five more people meet their Match. But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking – and deadlier – than others…

My review: I absolutely loved this book. The story of 5 individuals who have all taken the DNA love match test and been paired with the scientific love of their lives. Five very different characters embarking on new perfect relationships. Or are they? Well if they were it would be a very short, very dull book. Instead we gets twists and turns galore as each of them discover that their matches (or someone related to their matches) are not all quite what they seem.

One of the great things about a good read and some annual leave of work – you can read it in a day. It turns that fast. You have to keep going to see what happens in the lives of these people. It really does grip you from the outset and doesn’t let go.

In the world of online dating, dating apps like Tinder etc it does raise some interesting questions about what’s next. I can seriously see something like DNA matching happen. And then what if your ideal partner is a criminal, a serial killer as is one of the characters, what if they died before you got to meet them as in the book, or lived at the other end of the world? It’s a fascinating concept.

A gripping, thought provoking read, highly recommended
