Book Review | MILLION DOLLAR DATE | Susan Hatler

Book Description

Abigail Apple is running late to meet her blind date when she’s pulled over for speeding. Unfortunately, the follow-the-rules cop doesn’t care that she’s late, let alone that she’s heartbroken because her favorite dog rescue is in danger of being closed. Now she has to meet her date with mud drying on her heels, dog hair covering her dress, and the smell of a barn perfuming her hair. When she arrives, however, Abigail learns her handsome blind date is none other than the cop who pulled her over.

Abigail has no intention of staying until she learns Cooper Hill is heading a committee for the city that will award a six-figure donation to a charity of their choice. So, what’s a girl to do? Abigail decides a second date is the perfect way to convince Cooper to vote for the dog rescue. Soon, however, Abigail is less interested in Cooper’s vote than she is in his deep voice, kind heart, and tender touch.

Will this follow-the-rules cop and this follows-her-heart animal lover learn that despite poor first impressions, second chances can lead to love?

Plot Summary & Review

Million Dollar Date is a sweet romance with less focus on romance and more on Abigail’s passion for dogs.
Abigail Apple nee Abigail Adams, a law college dropout is out for her date. But she’s caught speeding, and the officer – Cooper Hill just wouldn’t fall for her charm. She finally arrives at the restaurant for her date.
And guess who’s her date?
That rude officer. Yep! Their first date is quite funny.
The comedy falters as the romance progresses. I liked officer Hill but I failed to relate with Abigail.
Apart from a sense that comedy is forced, this is a very sweet romance, one that takes time to build the chemistry. Very nice!

Dog lovers will love this book but I ain’t one. The story was alright, I loved Officer Hill, but Abigail, not so much.

So long!
