It's Valentine's Day and Rachel Price has a choice: Stay home and watch TV with her loveable doggy or let her best friend, Ellen, set her up on a blind date. What to do....
Ellen says the guy is a "10", but the last guy she set her up with was a "5". Rachel's been flirting with coworker Noah Peterson and she's hoping he's noticed. Then, she finds out Noah has big plans. Even worse, he advises Rachel to go on the blind date!
Should she play it safe and spend the Hallmark holiday with her loyal pooch, Chester, or risk another dating disaster by trying yet again for love?

I have read the book but the audio gives life to the characters. It makes it a more enjoyable listen.
Noah he is just cool and smooth Martha makes him seem more real and smooth. She gives nothing away.
It is a very short listen about an hour so yes.
A very short little read to remind us life can bring unexpected surprises. It was a charming little read that shows us sometimes blind dates are the very best surprises we could have. That is about all I can say without giving the book away. It was well written with a lovely story.
I have totally enjoyed this whole series I have read and listen to each book, I find them to be an outstanding whether you listen or read. Susan is a wonderful author that puts a lot of emotion in each book, she gives you wonderful characters that you can relate to. The narrator has a smooth mature tone, she puts a lot of emotion to the books. You can hear the humor in her tone and have to chuckle when she adds her sassy voice. Both the author and the narrator make the read flow smoothly in an easy flow way before you know it you are caught up in the book. I really recommend any of Susan's books whether the e-books or the audios. I am sure you won't be disappointed.
top 10 for sure
It is a short but very sweet story about opening your heart to risk love an one more blind date....
LOL her barking sounds of Chester...made me giggle
Id have to say...Take a Chance....this sums up the story....Rachael needed to Take a Chance to find what she was looking for
I really enjoyed this book...it was a very sweet story about taking chances an allowing love
I plan on listening to this every time I have a rough day! This had me laughing out loud in the car the whole way home!
When he shows up as her blind date, I was literally cheering.
I love how she does different voices, and somehow makes you feel like you're part of the story.
Take a chance, you never know who else is taking one too.
I was immediately drawn to this story, the characters are fun and loveable...short and sweet!
Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
Super quick short story. This is about Ellen's friend Rachel, the one with the cute little beagle. Fun little Valentine'd Day blind date tale. Not a lot of depth in the relationship, really just the first blush of something that could be special.
The whole book is from Rachel's POV, which limits how the reader seeing events. You only have her perspective to work from. Fortunately there are plenty of cues that you can pick up on to give you the bigger picture.
It is all sweet, a light flirtation but it never gets to the bedroom stage.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Martha Lee, who does a great job. She has a soothing mature tone to her read but is still able to bring out the lightness in the banter. I really liked her voices and how distinct she keeps them. I really enjoy the energy she creates with her voice it makes the story flow.
I am excited to have found this series. I love a tasty little treat every now and again!!
This is a great short story while you are waiting for your credits. Likeable characters you can relate to. Just perfect for my commute to work and left me smiling and happy to start my day. Take a chance and enjoy!
Short sweet romance
When Rachel walks into the restaurant and sees Noah sitting at the table as her blind date. She was so thrilled and overwhelmed that the man she had been crushing on was actually meeting her for dinner on Valentine's Day.
Ellen, Rachel's friend, because Ellen takes charge and doesn't take "no" for an answer. Martha Lee did Ellen's voice perfectly for the listener to understand that Ellen was definitely a Type A personality.
At the end, when Rachel and Noah are on her couch. Rachel had just hung up from talking on the phone to her ex-boyfriend. Noah was supportive and not jealous. He made it clear that he was glad that Rachel had chosen him.
Yes, but next time I might look at the length beforehand. There is a difference between a well written short story, and a story cut short. This was most definitely the latter.
Uhh that's it? Where's the rest of the story? This was ore like the start of a good book that cut off a few chapters in.
It made me wonder how in the world this book got published. Not that it wasn't a great start but it was far from a full story. It left you sitting there confused how it could end so quick. It was more like a preview of an upcoming full novel.
