Ellen’s figured out that finding the right guy is all about compatibility. That’s why she signs up for Detailed Dating—the local online dating scene in Sacramento. They ask men the hard questions, compare their answers with hers, then she filters through the profiles of each provided “match.” After numerous email exchanges, she narrows it down to two promising candidates she’s excited to meet in person.

When Ellen’s best friend asks her for a favor, dog-sitting leads to disaster and Ellen ends up at the local vet where she meets a man she can’t get out of her mind. Henry isn’t a logical choice, but she finds herself paying for dog obedience class to spend more time with him.

Ellen knows that in order to have a lasting relationship, she should take the safe route and go for one of the pre-screened guys. But, how can she think with her head when her heart keeps begging her to give Henry a chance?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review: Love at First Date, by Susan Hatler This was yet another great story from Susan Hatler. Like her short story My Last Blind Date, I enjoyed every bit of this novella. Hatler doesn’t do anything extraordinary with her characters or their stories, but what she does do is create believable, real life characters. You won’t get an over the top romance in Love at First Date. This novella can easily be about a relationship that happened to a friend. While the love that formulated took a fast track in certain parts, I still stand by my statement of it being believable. What I especially enjoyed about this one is that we get a glimpse into the pros and cons of various dating methods. Online dating is a keep subject for this novella, but so is meeting people the old-fashioned way by randomly finding a person of interest. I think they were both equally represented and without spoiling too much, I think that there is great dating advice given throughout. It was also a great pleasure to once again read about the character Rachel. She’s Ellen’s best friend and the main character in My Last Blind Date. There two stories are companions and I’d enjoy reading more related work from Hatler in the future. I hope there’ll be more of Rachel and Ellen. I’d also like to see the dogs, Chester and Kinsey, more. I’m a sucker for dogs in stories.
