Ms. Hatler penned another sweet and enjoyable story for her readers to get lost in for a little while. In this first book of the Better Date than Never series, we find Ellen signing up for an online dating site called Detailed Dating. She feels that this is a more methodical way of finding the right guy for her. After answering a few questions online, the dating service seems to have narrowed down her choices to two gentlemen that match what she’s looking for in a guy. But all doesn’t go as smoothly as planned. Even though she’s corresponding with these two matches, she isn’t sure who to pick yet. When her best friend, Rachel, asks her to watch her beloved beagle, Chester, Ellen gets herself in a bit of a bind that night. Things happen and she finds herself running to the vet’s office for an emergency visit with Chester. The thing she doesn’t plan on is meeting up with a gentleman named Henry in the office. This is a fun, light story that I found myself laughing out loud at times and really getting into. I personally wanted Ellen to end up with Henry, but you have to read the story yourself to see who she chose. I highly recommend this story and look forward to reading more entertaining stories in this series!
