How To Get A (Love) Life by Rosie Blake.
In it we meet Nicola who is challenged by her colleague Caroline to find herself a date ready for Valentines day, which is a mere three months away. In order to meet the dare Nicola throws herself into a variety of new situations; not particularly easy when you're used to living alone and are totally stuck in your own routine.
I really enjoyed reading this story. The characters are so bubbly and fun to get to know. I particularly loved Nicola's bat-loving-brother and also her colleague Caroline. Watching Nicola come out of herself and chill out a bit was lovely and she get's up to so much in her quest to find a date... she tries everything from golf, DIY classes and all weather watersports and even books herself on a singles holiday. But will she find love in the end? You'll just have to pick up a copy of How To Get A (Love) Life and find out.
At only 220 pages this is a short, but fast paced story and is so easy to read you'll just whiz through it. Definitely one for fans of chick-lit, plus it's a bargain on Kindle right now.... http://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Love-Life-Rosie-Blake-ebook/dp/B00I1OUFVG
The back page blurb:
Some people book last-minute holidays, walk barefoot in the grass or party on a week night. Not Nicola Brown. Nicola is the kind of girl who double-locks the front door, leaves the plastic covering on new furniture, sticks to a super-strict diet and definitely, absolutely Does Not Date.
Her colleague Caroline – loopy, warm and exasperated by her, knows that Nicola’s reluctance to lose control means she’s living only half a life. And so she lays down the gauntlet: Nicola must cast aside her hang ups and go on as many dates as it takes to find true love in time for Valentine’s Day.
The pick of local men is, quite frankly, a bit rubbish. And there are only three months until February 14th. Surely it’s an impossible task? But, as Nicola is about to find out on her dodgy dates, letting go isn’t quite as scary as she imagined. In fact, it’s rather a lot of fun…
