Lonely in Longreach by Eva Scott
I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Do you believe in love at first sight? Sarah doesn't - but then she finds the dating profile of Lonely in Longreach and can't stop thinking about him. She has to meet Sam. The problem? Sam has no idea he has a dating profile. His son and a friend set it up to make sure he won't be lonely anymore. This might work brilliantly - or blow up in everyone's faces.
This is a delightful 21st-century Australian take on Sleepless in Seattle and I found myself feeling a little bereft at the end of this book, since I really became quite fond of the characters. Maddie and Levi are such a pair - and at times outshone the adults.
All in all, a fun bit of escapism. Your enjoyment will vary depending on how much you can tolerate teen shenanigans.
