Book Tour – One Last First Date

I discovered Kate O’Keeffe a few weeks ago.  I loved her book covers and couldn’t wait to read one of her books.

It was exciting to find out that not only did I get to read one of her books, but I was also able to be a part of a book tour for her.

I could not put her book down!

Title: One Last First Date
Series: Cozy Cottage Cafe Series
Author: Kate O’Keeffe
Release Date: June 1st, 2017
Tour Dates: June 11th – 16th, 2017
Genre: Chick Lit

Cassie Dunhill is sick of dating. It’s been ten years and it’s time, time to find The One. It’s either that or buy a fetching habit and veil and abandon the whole thing. But Cassie believes in love, and she’s not ready to give up yet.

Cassie and her best friends make a pact that the next date they go on will be their One Last First Date. The pressure is on to find Mr. Right, and Cassie’s the first to find him: Parker Hamilton. He’s good-looking, smart, cultured—and a doctor. Despite his obvious credentials, Cassie’s not taking any chances. She’s vetted Parker so thoroughly she could offer some pointers to the CIA. He passes with flying colors.

Things get complicated when Will Jordan, her irritating work colleague, muscles in on her dream job and her love life. Will is a typical guy, complete with nicknames for everyone, even Cassie. His good looks and relaxed and easy nature can be distracting. But Cassie can do without that kind of distraction right now, no matter how good Will looks with his shirt off.

In the end, is there only One Last First Date?

My review:

This is the first book I’ve read by Kate O’Keefe and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Cassie, Paige, and Marissa are best friends and make a pact they are only going to marry the next person they go with on a first date. I couldn’t handle that pressure!

Cassie is a great character. I wanted to be her new best friend and I cringed whenever she did anything embarrassing- something inevitable if you think you’re dating “the one.” I delighted in all of the characters; especially the men. The minute I read that Will looks like Poldark’s brother, I knew I was hooked.

Kate writes a great rom-com. It’s witty, romantic, and well written. Her vivid descriptions of the desserts at the Cozy Cottage Café made my mouth water. I want to go to Auckland and eat a slice of flourless chocolate and raspberry cake right now.

I am so glad this is the beginning of a series because I wanted to read more about Cassie’s friends, Paige, Marissa, and Bailey.

This is a fun, delightful and thoroughly enjoyable read!
