I didn’t date many guys in my life, having married young. Yet I do have one blind date under my belt.
You would think that a date arranged by my sister would result in a good match. After all, if your sister doesn’t know you that well, who does? Sure, he was a nice guy. . .
It started with a lack of communication. Not having been on many dates, I made an assumption that turned out to be false. Fancy dress, high strappy heels, looking my best. He turned up in jeans and a polo shirt. Neat, but clearly casual. Oops!
I did have a nice time but he never did call for another date. I imagine he thought we were just too different. . .

** #1 New Release in Classic Humor Fiction **
Abigail Apple is running late to meet her blind date when she’s pulled over for speeding. Unfortunately, the follow-the-rules cop doesn’t care that she’s late, let alone that she’s heartbroken because her favorite dog rescue is in danger of being closed. Now she has to meet her date with mud drying on her heels, dog hair covering her dress, and the smell of a barn perfuming her hair. When she arrives, however, Abigail learns her handsome blind date is none other than the cop who pulled her over.
Abigail has no intention of staying until she learns Cooper Hill is heading a committee for the city that will award a six-figure donation to a charity of their choice. So, what’s a girl to do? Abigail decides a second date is the perfect way to convince Cooper to vote for the dog rescue. Soon, however, Abigail is less interested in Cooper’s vote than she is in his deep voice, kind heart, and tender touch.
Will this follow-the-rules cop and this follows-her-heart animal lover learn that despite poor first impressions, second chances can lead to love?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Laughter, tears, misunderstandings, and puppies!
Susan Hatler packed all the above into Million Dollar Date, the first book of her new series, Do-Over Date, that promises to delight her readers. I just might have a thing for this author’s rom-com/chick-lit stories. So perhaps I’m biased. Then again, as I write this review, it is still twelve days away from the release and this title is #87 in the Classic Humor Fiction category. So I must not be alone in this.
I like books that make me laugh. And smile. And give me the invincible feeling I get when I’ve finished reading a novel because everything about it was just right.
I appreciated Abigail’s passion and the way she leads with her heart and not her head. As you can imagine, this created some interesting circumstances!
The humorous blind date where Abigail finds out the amazing guy she has been e-mailing with about puppies is the same robocop who gave her a ticket earlier in the day made me laugh. I could just see them glaring at each other as they rushed through the meal.
This witty novella is filled with snappy repartee. And puppies. If you enjoy romantic comedy, you won’t want to miss Million Dollar Date.
