Around the World in 80 Dates - Book Review

Around the World in 80 Dates
by Jennifer Cox
Penguin Canada 2005
Book Website

Jennifer was a publicist for Lonely Planet Books. Based in England, she had a great job but NO love life. so using her contacts from her jobs, she contacted them adn asked them to find men that she could date. Then she went around the world, meeting and dating the men. she had 80 dates lined up. Somewhere in that lot, she figured, she should find her soul mate.

She did find him. He was number 55. Although he was from Seattle, he and Jennifer actually met in Nevada. She spent a week with him in Nevada and they clicked immediately. The sparks were there right from the start when they laid eyes on each other. Love at first sight does work.

So Jennifer visited him in Seattle and then she continued on around the world to finish dating the last 25 men on her list - well almost the whole list. Jennifer stopped after date 76. She actually met a second soul mate, and decide that two soul mates was one too many. So Jennifer stopped the dating tour and flew back to Seattle.

This is date number 55 - the soul mate.

I will let you read the book to find out his name and why they are on a boat.
Another excellent book that I could not put down until I had finished it.
