"Emma Woodhouse has the best of intentions when it comes to being a lifestyle coach, but her crazy matchmaking tendencies leave everyone wondering if maybe she’s a bit…clueless."

The object of the game remains the same as the original, but instead of solving a murder, players attempt to discover who Emma is trying to set up, and where she plans to do it.
