UP TO DATE BY SUSAN HATLER- A BOOK REVIEW
Up to Date by Susan Hatler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Up to Date by Susan Hatler is a 2014 Hatco , Inc. Publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I don't remember how I discovered this charming series, but I love each one of these short contemporary romances. This one focuses on Ginger, a young woman who has given up her dream as an artist to work at a dull , no challenge job to satisfy her mother who is afraid of anything that reeks of instability. Then there is her sister, Mary Ann who is a big mooch and lives off Ginger's generosity. When Ginger met Greg there was an instant connection but Greg is an emergency room doctor and that spells trouble for Ginger because her father was in the exact same field and due to seeing trauma up close all day everyday he became an alcoholic.
When she and Greg meet up again, by chance, she has the opportunity to find true love, but will her fears keep her from taking that big step? A few unexpected life curve balls has given Ginger the chance to change her career path but will her mother accept it or squash all her hopes?
The Gilligan's Island theme that ran through this one was hilarious. Ginger and Mary Ann, then a cat named Skipper and so on. I was literally laughing out loud at the end. These short stories are just right for any time out you have in a day to read. Usually very light, no graphic anything, just a sweet love story that will give your spirits a lift.
