THE I HATE TO DATE CLUB
Caterer Eva hates to date and realizes that all women of a certain age do, even if they hope to find a man. Her solution is to form the I Hate to Date Club with friends from a reading group. They realize they are tired of reading books in which women who enjoy sex end up either dead or punished. Together, they use their individual skills to make each member the best she can be and set out to find their happily ever afters. Told with humor and a sassy tone, The I Hate to Date Club (4), by Elda Minger, is strong because the women are sympathetic and distinct individuals. The ending is satisfactory, if not always expected.
