Miniseries: Checking E-Males
I admit it. I totally liked this story. I mean really who can't dig a story using internet dating or online matchmaking websites as a storyline? If you have ever created a dating profile or signed up for a matchmaking service then this book is seriously entertaining. I personally enjoyed the misunderstandings between Candy and Justin. It seems that it's one book in a series about four women who are part of the Women in Power business professionals group. I have to look up the other books and lea ...more
Going up to 3.5. I liked the book, and certainly found the second half more intriguing. I liked Justin, displaced California boy in mid winter Wisconsin. Wasn't so convinced by Candy - she was definitely more of a goer than she thought - the evil ex boyfriends doing. The premise of friends dating agency was ok but am looking forward to the dance between Marie (agency owner) and Quinn (well met friend).
This was an up and down book for me. I was not too fond a the beginning but then the story and the heroine grew on me as a I kept reading. I like the overall premise of the friend looking out for and wanting happiness for her three other girlfriends. I am very interested in the plot line involving the matchmaker, but it is clear that the plot is going to carry over the trilogy.

Candy has not dated since her divorce. Her friend Marie has an on-line dating service and insists Candy fill out the form and begin dating again. She does but realizes she has 4 different personalities, which raises a red flag when her neighbor Justin notices her different appearances when she leaves on dates.
Dawn ♥ romance
The plot of this steamy story was pretty good but the romance had so many mixed messages and sometimes it got too heavy with details so I skimmed a bit. A friend wants to setup party organizer Candy with online dating and she is intrigued by her neighbor Justin, a writer.
Another great story by Isabel Sharpe.

The romance was sweet and sometimes scorching, the characters both immensely likable, and the ending was terrific.

I am so going to read this one again!

Isabel Sharpe was not born pen in hand like so many of her fellow authors. After she quit work in 1994 to stay home with her first-born son and nearly went out of her mind, she started writing. Yes, she was the clichéd bored housewife writing romance, but it was either that cliché or seduce the mailman, and her mailman was unattractive. After more than twenty novels for Harlequin, and the exciting ...more
