This is a fun novel about the ins and outs of Online Dating by someone who knows a thing about it because the author runs her own dating agency! I really enjoyed the story and there is just something about the writing and the setting (Dublin) that made me think that I was in the middle of a book by Sheila O'Flanagan or Cathy Kelly! The story flows well and the main character is very likable, I route for her right from the start. The situations are very real and as I have seen friends go through the process the book shows you really do meet all kinds. I honestly can say I really loved this story and I look forward to reading more by Siggy Buckley.
I recommend this to all who enjoy Chick-Lit !
