If you're looking for a sweet, feel-good romance with a "Pollyanna" and British hunk - give this a whirl.
I loved Molly Cooper's Dream Date! It was a fun read, and pretty quick to get through, and I really indentified with both Molly and Patrick. It was interesting to read their thoughts on each other's lives and homes, and to sense over time that they should be together. Molly's character was full of life and ready to take on any new challenges, and Patrick was a bit brooding in the beginning but quickly opened up to his new life in Australia. I also enjoyed that it was Patrick that first fell for Molly and not the other way around. I don't think I would have enjoyed this book as much if it was the typical girl trying to snag the guy plot. This novel was so quick to get through because a lot of the writing was emails between Molly and Patrick, or excerpts from Molly's diary. Sometimes when authors go that route it makes the story lack a strong bond to the characters, but Hannay did an excellent job at making sure that didn't happen. I felt the emails heightened the story instead of hindering it, and I was desperate to get to the end to find out if Molly and Patrick would get together. A definite recommendation from me!
I admit that out of place adventures to me are the best. This one however did it very differently. The bulk of the book was not straight story, but was emails from one main character to the others. Rather than doing the standard thing, the author put us in the modern technological path and let us see what was happening through emails. Molly is an excited verbose young lady, and Patrick is the stuffed staid Brit who is only just trying to come out of his shell. Each email gives you the character's personality in both content and style while telling you what is going on in the story line by talking about what was happening around them.
This is not to be missed. I hope the author does more of this type of book.
I thought it was cute with the e-mail letters and diary writing but after a while it got annoying. I was hoping that it would at some point stop with the emails and diary book writing and get into interaction. It was close to the end when the interaction starts(small blip) but then again it ends with journal writing again. Ugh.
