April 27th 2017

The first in a three book series called Searching for Sarah. Come meet Sarah and begin her journey….

Sarah Keller is convinced that her Mr. Right is stuck in traffic…in another country…on another planet. ‘Thirty-one and still single’ isn’t how she wants to be introduced by her dad. That’s why she’s on five dating websites, posing as anything from an avid gardener to a crazed thrill seeker.

Sam Turner is a single dad, workaholic, who owns his own company. Long-term relationships have never worked out for him. That’s why he needs a nanny.

When a mutual friend suggests Sarah take the job temporarily, everything changes for them both. Sarah begins falling for the man who meets almost none of her online criteria. And when strange things start happening—things that jeopardize the safety of Sarah, Sam is the last person she would imagine is hiding something.

Did you know that the reported busiest season for online dating is January 5th? Me, either. I guess it would be right up there with gym memberships. Everyone wanting to take their current situation to another level. And did you know that one third of all marriages have online dating sprinkled on them? Crazy, huh?

My experience with online dating is vicariously through my best friend. Let’s face it, when I was dating, online wasn’t that big. Were computers even that big? Nah, just kidding. Computers did exist. I’m not that old! But people definitely went places to meet one another. Then there was the Craig’s list scare. And I’m pretty sure people shied away from the computers for awhile after that. Then…it came back big. You had Christian mingle, Farmer’s only, Match, eHarmony. Everyone was in the mix for displaying profiles and taking money to connect two strangers. And who is to say who is telling the truth? Like there’s a fact checker or something that these site guarantee?

My friend…the single one…chose online to date, because mostly, after going to a few bars, discovered she’d much prefer “shopping” from the seat of her couch…in a robe, eating ice cream and potato chips alternately. But then came the obsession. Did he respond? How many ‘pings’ did I receive today? Why isn’t anyone writing me back? Who else has joined since I went to the bathroom? It’s a vicious cycle. And who can you trust? Sure you like to cuddle and are only interested in interested people only. What?? Then you take the plunge, agree to meet them, and all they wanted was not to commit. Not even to another date.

Sarah Keller, the heroine in “Searching For Sarah” has had her share of letdowns from the internet. But she wants to leave no stone unturned, no site unvisited, and nothing to chance. So she fibs a little bit on her profile, trying to snag all the eligible guys she can possibly find. She figures she could jump out of plane if needed, do turkey calls on gobbler day if she has to, and head up Arborfest, even if she kills the grass in her yard by looking at it too hard.

Online dating…still glad I missed out on the trend.
