Better Date than Never Series, Book 1

Ellen’s figured out that finding the right guy is all about compatibility. That’s why she’s signed up for Detailed Dating—the local online dating scene in Sacramento. Learning men’s preferences up front, plus a few weeks of email correspondence, has resulted in two candidates she’s excited to meet in person.

When Ellen’s best friend asks her to baby-sit her beloved pooch, dog-sitting leads to disaster and Ellen ends up at the local vet where she meets a man she can’t stop thinking about. Henry isn’t a logical choice, but Ellen suddenly finds herself signing up for a week-long doggy class to spend more time with him.

Now, Ellen has a choice: Go with one of the logical choices or let herself fall for the one man her heart seems to want.
What a great start to a short, sweet, and humorous series.  When Ellen decides to go on a strict diet of online well researched dates, you just know something unexpected is going to happen.  I just never thought that a dog eating a hairbrush would be the thing to set it off.  Ellen was a great character, Chester was an amazing puppy to help her out, and Henry is the perfect guy.  Now, we can't forget about the internet dates - they are each special in their own way as well and really helped me understand and know Ellen's personality.

While this is a shorter story, there is plenty packed in to keep it a good one.  While this book may not have gotten the highest rating - it was perfect for a pick me up story during a long week.  Susan Hatler also introduced us to a few of Ellen's friends, and it looks like they are next in line to find love of their own.
