A little gem of a feel-good romance.
on 4 November 2012
Though this is short, it's well done, interesting, funny, sweet, charming, romantic and with really likable characters, including the furry ones.
I can't go into too much detail, or else I'd spoil the tale, but take a 30yo female who's determined that she won't go down the same route as her much-romanced and married mum, so who instead joins a dating agency to make a match made based on shared values and compatibility...But, Cupid's around in the form of a cute little dog, as just before her first date, she happens to meet a total stranger, in totally random, dog-induced circumstances, who begins to take over her thoughts...
Add in a BFF, mum to said cute dog (Chester, who seems to have the doggy version of Prader-Willi syndrome), funny and witty lines, a couple of contenders for the role of The One, a practically perfect ending (though I would have liked an epilogue) and this is an excellent tale.
It's possibly the best short romance that I've read in a long while, and it didn't even have any sex in it! At the end, I was pleased to see that there's at least another tale in this series, featuring the BFF, so maybe we'll get to see more of this couple then. Bye. I'm now off to track that down!
