From the bestselling Australian author of The Hating Game, now a major motion picture, comes something a little unexpected... an historical rom-com that imagines Victor Frankenstein's sheltered younger sister's attempts to create the perfect man.Clever, pretty (and odd), Angelika Frankenstein has run out of suitors. When assisting in her brother Victor's ground-breaking experiment to bring a reassembled man back to life, she realises that having an agreeable gentleman convalescing in the guest suite might be a chance to let a man get to know the real her.When the handsome scientific miracle sits up on the lab table, her hopes for an instant romantic connection are thrown into disarray. Named Will for the moment, he has amnesia and is solely focused on uncovering his true identity. Trying to ignore their heart-pounding chemistry, Angelika reluctantly joins his investigation, hoping it will bring them closer. But then a second suitor emerges to aid their quest. Perhaps fate is not something that can be influenced in a laboratory? Or is Will (or whatever his name is!) her dream man, tailored for her in every way? Filled with carriages, candlesticks and corpses, Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match is the spooky-season reimagining of the well-known classic that reminds us to never judge a man by his cadaver!
