Book Description

Arabella's got the dream job. It's time for ROMANCE!

Arabella Jones has been best friends with Camille since their days in college. Her parents died when she was a teenager, which explains why she gives up everything familiar to move to Camille's hometown and start a new career as as a news anchor, even adopting Camille's family as her own. That doesn't mean accepting a date from Camille's attractive older brother. If something went wrong, Camille and her parents might never forgive her. Bella's risked too much to blow it all on a romance with a brother, even if Jeff is cute enough to make her toes curl.

Arabella has to grin and take it when Camille's back-up plan comes into play. Truly inspirational? Lord, help us. Seven blind dates, all hand-picked by Camille. Who will Bella choose?

  1. A date to Camille's wedding? Everybody loves Davis.
  2. A cowboy on a mechanical bull? Bella might just kill her sister for giving Camille his name, but she does learn a new line dance.
  3. An exclusive ice-house restaurant?...without a coat. Usher in the flu.
  4. A horseback ride in the country? Guy Stewart says he really understands women. They love to talk, talk, talk. Bella might disagree with him…if he ever lets her talk.
  5. The man running for District Attorney? Maybe her boss had introduced them instead of Camille, but it's still a blind date. Besides, he really knows how to treat a girl, even if he does pay someone to water his plants.
  6. A charming dad with the most adorable little girls? Does she want a ready-made family?
  7. Maybe God should pick this one.
Surely one will be a man worthy of a lifetime's commitment.

Jeff has a few plans of his own when Bella won't look his way, and he's not giving up without a fight. If a bouquet of flowers delivered every day won't do it, then perhaps a sunset ride on a hot air balloon will get her attention. He's bathed this project in prayer, and he's trying to trust God with the end result.

Is Arabella listening to God?

7 Blind Dates is a Christian romance of approximately 193 print pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Felicia has done it again! November 1, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not my first, nor will it be my last, Felicia Mires book. Every one has been a non-stop repeat read. 7 Blind Dates is no exception.

Arabella has finally found the courage to move to the hometown of her college best friend. Even though Bella has a sister that is six years older, she has practicality adopted Camille's family except Jeff, the brother she never has the chance to meet. When Bella "comes home" for Cami's wedding she has agreed to go on 7 dates and none of which are to be Jeff, who Camille thinks is perfect for Bella. Then they meet and its instant attraction on both ends. Jeff turns out to be the best thing that has happened to Bella, but she is insistent not to date him, if it goes wrong she could loose the family she has longed for since her parents death at seventeen. All the dates Bella goes on are one test after another that prove who she should be with.

What will Bella do? What will Jeff do? Through this sweet love story, Felicia shows a reliance that we all have on family and God. Bella and Jeff try to do what the Lord has lead them to do and when they get it wrong they are always back to seeking His face. That has to be the most important message in the book to me is that when we as God's children mess up, and we always do, that we still have a Heavenly Father that is with us even when out earthly family is far away.

I am ready for the next, Thanks Felicia!

Felicia Mires is a very gifted writer. Once I started reading 7 blind Dates I could not put it down. I enjoy her books because it is hard to find interesting novels that do not contain foul language or indecent scenes. The two books I read were wonderful and I will be ordering others soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been even better July 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty cute story and I really didn't dislike it as much as my rating might suggest. But it has so many issues that you're reading this fairly enjoyable love story and are constantly distracted by moments of "Huh!?" Examples: 1) At least twice when characters are referred to by the wrong name. 2) When someone suggests you can't keep a skillet in the oven because you might accidentally "melt" it. Really? Pans can't get hot? 3) When a character says his wife, who is two weeks from her due date, will be put on bed rest if she has any more contractions. I don't think so. Contractions at this point are not cause for concern. They are cause for having a baby. 3) A character leaves the heroine, goes home and frets then decides to order flowers. Meanwhile, she walks away from the door and the flowers arrive. Sending flowers back in time? Cool trick. 4) When one character says Valentine's Day is Thursday, then two characters get together on Thursday looking forward to their Valentine's dinner the next day. 5) The entire scene involving clearing up an embezzlement issue. A man drives somewhere a half hour away in the middle of the afternoon. He gets there and spends "more than two hours" working on something, they watch more "hours tick by" and just as I'm imagining them working into the night someone says it's five o'clock. What happened to the hours and hours? Then they go to the police station and someone wishes he could have let someone know where he was. He didn't have a chance during those hours and hours? They go to the police station specifically to show some evidence. After "they'd been at it for hours" a cop says, "I'd like to see what you consider evidence. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Book July 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this one. The main character didn't want to mess up her relationship with her best friend by agreeing to date her best friend's brother, in case the relationship didn't work out, so instead when she moved to a new town to be near her friend she agreed to blind dates chosen by her best friend (and one by her sister and another one sort of by her new boss).

I must admit that my favorite character was the best friend's brother and although there weren't many, my favorite scenes were ones where he was the point of view character. That's not saying I didn't love the rest of it, just that those parts I enjoyed more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun story with lovable characters! June 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Without giving anything away, I have to say that Jeff might be one of my favorite fictional characters ever. The humble and determined way he goes about winning Arabella's heart is refreshing and endearing.

Aside from the well-crafted romance, I have to congratulate the author on creating an impressive cast of amusing "dates". I actually laughed out loud at some of the men poor Arabella was forced to endure.

All in all, this was a fun romance with an entertaining storyline, and I have recommended it to some friends who love sweet, romantic stories!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great book from Felicia Mires. Even my teenager loved it.
It is wonderful to share a book with your daughter that will promote the values you are trying to teach about relationships with religious foundations. Felicia Mires accomplishes this in all of her books.
This book had us laughing at all of the crazy blind dates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful book that everyone can relate to. March 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whether you are looking for the man of your dreams or already found him, you will enjoy this delightful book. It reminded me of many of my dates and the journey to finding my husband of 44 years. It is lighthearted with emphasis on how relying on God will carry you to find the peace we all need in our lives.

More About the Author

Felicia Mires began her writing career years ago when she became bored with what she found available in the Christian Fiction market. Hoping to entertain herself and provide inspiration to other Christians, she wrote her first novel, Diamonds are for Eden. Since that time, she has written more than 20 Christian novels (all with a bit of romance), even becoming a finalist in the ACFW competition. Along the way, she has judged multiple writing contests, edited scores of books for other writers, and discovered a wealth of fascinating Christian fiction.

But, God did not create man, or woman, for books alone. Thankfully, there is relationship. Felicia has been married for over 25 years to Gene Mires, from whom she gains a plethora of hilarious and creative ideas. Felicia and Gene have three incredible children and three dogs who think they're children. Ahh, the drama...and unending plot ideas.

Life is full of relationship. If you need a bit of inspiration or encouragement, try Christian Fiction by Felicia Mires.
