Publisher: Hatco Publishing
Release Date: February 22, 2015
Déjà Date stars Melinda Morgan, the blonde bombshell you’ve met several times throughout the series. In order to save the bakery of her dreams, Melinda must fulfill her father’s Carpe Diem list, which includes confronting the sexy boy-next-door who’d once broken her heart.
I have loved the Better Date Than Never Series. This is novella number 9 in that series. Each story contains a fun sit down and enjoy an hour or two of good humor, interesting turns of events, and a sigh or two thrown in. This is a stand-alone. If you haven’t read any of the other stories, no worries. Like in any series, some stories are better than others. I will say that in this series I would give each story a 4 or 5 – not too shabby.
Our heroine, Melinda, is a mess. She comes across as perfect, but perfect has a price. She is paralyzed by making a mistake. Nate is a sweet, hot, adventurer. I love both of these characters because they are real personalities of people I know. I liked getting to know Melinda’s story and liked her better because I did. I enjoyed waiting to see how Ms. Hatler would have each character stretch and grow. It has a message without coming across too heavy.
Rating: 4 Stars – I really liked it!
