Fate and Blind Dates by Melissa Baldwin is the second book in the Twist of Fate series. Fran Riley is a massage therapist who isn’t happy; she hates her job and being single. She offers her fate to the Universe intending to see where the chips fall. She is set up on a date with a client’s nephew and agrees to meet him at a work event. When she is approached by a man asking her on a date, she thinks it’s him, until her real date appears. Now Fran has two men to choose between and doesn’t know which way to turn. Will the Universe help her make a choice? Fran decides to let fate intervene and show her the way, but not without much meddling from her family. Will Fran choose Matt or Aaron, and will it be the right choice?
Fate and Blind Dates by Melissa Baldwin is a clean romantic comedy and a fun story with many laugh-out-loud moments. The tale is told from the main protagonist’s point of view, and all the characters are well-developed. They are likable, easy to relate to, quirky with real flaws, and all have strong personalities. It is an easy read, is not too long, and is a humorous story revealing the trials of a love triangle with plenty of crossed wires. It has well-meaning do-gooders, meddling mothers, and two gorgeous men to choose from. It is a story about personal discovery, letting fate have its way, and is a thoroughly enjoyable installment in a good series. If you like romantic comedies, you’ll love this one.
