Love at First Date (Better Date than Never #1)by Susan Hatler
Ellen’s figured out that finding the right guy is all about compatibility. That’s why she signs up for Detailed Dating—the local online dating scene in Sacramento. They ask men the hard questions, compare their answers with hers, then she filters through the profiles of each provided “match.” After numerous email exchanges, she narrows it down to two promising candidates she’s excited to meet in person.
When Ellen’s best friend asks her for a favor, dog-sitting leads to disaster and Ellen ends up at the local vet where she meets a man she can’t get out of her mind. Henry isn’t a logical choice, but she finds herself paying for dog obedience class to spend more time with him.

The story starts off with Ellen realizing that the way to her true soul mate would be
online dating, it would be a fast way to narrow down her candidates. How wrong could it be when you have a high percentage compatibility rate with the other person? Ellen narrows her choices down to two men and plans to meet them in person on different dates.
Ellen's best friend Rachel ask her to dog sit for the night, which leads to a visit to the vet.
Ellen never expected to run into Henry, a handsome and mysterious man who is attending dog obedience classes with his pooch. Since Chester (Rachel's dog) has chewing issues Ellen decides to sign him up for classes. The nights Ellen and Henry are in obedience class with the dogs feels like it's better than any date Ellen has been on.
How will Ellen handle her online dating? Will Ellen and Henry forget each other once the 5 days of classes are finished and will Chester have learned anything?
I really did enjoy this fun romantic story and I am looking forward to reading more from
The Better Date than Never series collection.
