Review of Alphabet Dating, by Monique McDonell

I was provided a complimentary copy of Alphabet Dating by the author, Monique McDonell, for an honest review.

About Alphabet Dating:

Serena’s friends have a plan to get her dating again - 26 dates in a month - one for every letter in the alphabet. What could possibly go wrong?
When Serena Sanders reluctantly agrees to participate in the Alphabet Dating Plan she knows it will be tough but there’s so much she hadn’t factored in. Who knew men were so complicated? Not Serena.
As she begins dating her way through the alphabet she starts to learn more about herself and her friends than she ever expected as secrets and hidden agendas are revealed. Alphabet Dating is a love story – a tale of lost love, unrequited love, platonic love and ultimately it’s about learning to love again.

My review: 3.5 Stars

Alphabet Dating is definitely a fun, heartfelt story. The characters are likeable and diverse, the story is well-developed, and the author has a unique and charming "voice." The blind dates are wacky, the love story sweet, and the hero and heroine have great chemistry. The main struggle with this book is the punctuation, grammar, and overall copyediting. I'm pretty tolerant as far as typographical errors go; I know how hard it is to get a clean edit, but this book is full of errors that detract and confuse the reader.

Overall, I would recommend reading Alphabet Dating. It's a quick read with good, clean fun and a lot of heart. Just be prepared for a bit of a bumpy read.
