Melody Carlson has written more than books for teens, women, and children. Before publishing, Melody traveled around the world, volunteered in teen.
But I was disappointed when, by the end of that book, she had only just agreed to the bargain. So, after feeling gypped by the first book due to my off-base expectations, I felt I owed it to the story to continue and see how it all plays out. And for the most part, Dating, Dining, and Desperation was exactly what I was looking for—a fast, funny, carefree read full of tons of quirky characters and a heroine in quite the romantic pickle!
A delightful, entertaining escape for any sunny afternoon, this is the kind of book to pack in your tote bag for a day at the beach, and to savor while sipping colorful, fruity cocktails and working on your tan. Daphne was no closer to marriage or even a boyfriend at the end of this book than she was at the end of the first. Quite the opposite: instead of narrowing down her field of suitors, the author nearly tripled it!
Not to mention all the new secondary characters, especially seven-year-old Mabel. I felt like this story suffered a bit from a split personality. Is she Bridget Jones? Is she Daddy Warbucks? As for the scores of suitors, Daphne had three solids by the end of the first book Jake, Mick and Ricardo and even two more possibles Truman and Andrew —more than enough for me to accept and invest in as a reader. But instead of getting to know each of these guys better in this book, Collin was added to the mix.
And Tony. And Spencer.

Post a Comment. Happy New Year! As you can probably tell from the title of this post I have some news. It’s exciting news for Reading With Wrin This book starts right where the first one ended and just keep going on with the story.

Now I was expecting to dislike Sabrina and I did at first, but as we got to know her story I started liking her and thinking that she is exactly what Daphne needs in a friend right now.

Daphne has A Southern belle new Dating, Dining, and Desperation. Melody Carlson. Daphne Ballinger has learned to accept her deceased, eccentric aunt’s strange request that she marry in order to inherit her estate, along with taking over her aunt’s hometown paper’s advice column. But knowing and accepting that God’s will be done becomes harder when a new neighbor, a divorced socialite, learns of Daphne’s predicament and takes on the task of finding her the perfect man, even if it includes speed dating.
When God does open Daphne’s heart, it is instead to take in a young girl left parentless and in the care of her dying grandmother. It may be a temporary arrangement until the girl’s uncle returns from the Marines, but God uses Daphne to speak His heavenly love and protection into the life of the child — whom Daphne soon discovers has a very handsome and single uncle.
Loved it! Her books range from serious issues like schizophrenia Finding Alice to lighter topics like house-flipping A Mile in My Flip-Flops but most of the inspiration behind her fiction comes right out of real life. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. Carlson has two grown sons and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and yellow Lab dog.
