    "Short sweet romance"
    What made the experience of listening to My Last Blind Date the most enjoyable?

    I have read the book but the audio gives life to the characters. It makes it a more enjoyable listen.


    Which character – as performed by Martha Lee – was your favorite?

    Noah he is just cool and smooth Martha makes him seem more real and smooth. She gives nothing away.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is a very short listen about an hour so yes.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Adorable Quickie!"

    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!!

    Story
    "Short and flirty romance"
    If you could sum up My Last Blind Date in three words, what would they be?

    Short sweet romance


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Last Blind Date?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Martha Lee – was your favorite?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.

    Story
    "Incredibly short"
    Would you try another book from Susan Hatler and/or Martha Lee?

    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.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    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.


    Did My Last Blind Date inspire you to do anything?

    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.
