I really enjoyed reading Susan's 2nd novel, 'The Dating Game.'
Gill McFadden, the main character, is a workaholic. Gill runs her own recruitment agency and is burning the candle at both ends to keep on top of her work load. Although Gill enjoys her work, she does feel the need to employ extra staff and sets about putting this right by advertising for a recruitment officer. Gill is longing to find love and would like a long term relationship....and more of a social life. Now, Gill is at that age where she's old enough to have had a few relationships, but sadly, they've never worked out for her. Unable to find love in the traditional way; you know, at a bar or a party etc, she decides to join a dating agency, namely, the, 'Happy Ever After Dating Agency.' Soon, the profiles of potential dates start winging their way into Gill's email inbox and she starts arranging 'meet ups.' The guys are a mixed bunch and it's a, will she?, or won't she? guessing game of who you think Gill may or may not end up with. And let me say at this juncture, that you always get one, don't you girls?! Gill does get to have some girly time too with her closest friends and spends a long weekend away with them in Barcelona. There are such a lot of places of interest/restaurants/bars named in this section of the book, it's clear that the author's love of this city is close to her heart. There are quite a few funny one liners too, which made me chuckle! Definitely a girlie book and one you'll enjoy. The joys of dating eh?!

This is an enjoyable story about Gill who is a workaholic and therefore has no time to find a man (unfortunately time isn't always all one needs. So she joins a (very expensive) dating site, and from there on has some interesting (?) experiences with the various men she meets. Luckily she also has some very close girlfriends, with whom she can discuss everything.
Parts of this book are very good, parts are less believable but by and large reading it is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in the garden

Phew, well I have just finished this book and I have to say I am so glad I never had to go through what Gill had to or have to resort to a dating agency to find someone. Although you think it may be fun , it really seems like hard work after reading this!

The first chapter starts with Gill relating her last dating disaster to a man that her girl-friends had set her up with in the past and literally had me in tears of laughter, when she was describing him. It was a great way to start the book!

Basically 'the Dating Game' is about Gill, who runs her own recruitment agency business and works very hard at it , finding little time for love or any personal life. This all changes when she joins a dating agency and she finds herself having to juggle her personal life and her business. She takes on additional staff to help with her workload and this frees her up more for a personal life. The dating agency is called 'Happy Ever After Dating Agency' and via the profiles they send her she is quickly paired off with four potential suitors - Anton, Sean, Charlie and Gary. She initially meets up with all of them but its clear one stands out a cut above the rest - Anton, the georgeous Russian! She continues to meet up with all four of them, unfortunately an almost tragedy means one of them disappears off the scene which leaves her devastated, so she continues to date the other three who are less then perfect. While her brain is trying to sort out which one she likes the best , she goes on a girls break to barcelona, there she meets a scotsman who fights off a bag snatcher. On her return to Glasgow from her break she accidentally meets him again. So does she end up with someone via the Dating Agency or does she end up with this man who is her knight in shining armour?

I was sent an advanced review copy of this novel by the author.

Susan Buchanan's second novel will appeal to anyone who would like a nice, jolly, easy read about a woman who signs up with a dating agency and all the men she meets through this.

The novel centres round not only Gill's dates but also the relationship she has with her three best girlfriends - there's plenty of 'girly' stuff to identify with! In one part of the story she feels let down by someone with whom she had hoped to have a deeper relationship; I thought this bit was very good, and will ring true with all too many of us.

This novel will appeal to 'foodies', too, or just people who love to go to restaurants, as there are many descriptions of those visited by Gill, her dates and her friends in various venues, both in Glasgow, where the novel is set, and in Barcelona - which brings me on to another area of appeal about the story. There are several chapters set in Barcelona, where Gill and her friends go for a short holiday. These chapters give a great deal of detail about the architecture, tourist attractions and history of the city, showing the author's great love for it - anyone who has been there will enjoy reading about a place they have experienced, too. I also liked reading about Glasgow itself.

To sum up - the sort of book with which you might curl up in bed after a long day - it's 'cuisine lit' as well as sort of grown up chick lit - Gill's a businesswoman, not a ditzy shoe collector!
