As if it wasn’t bad enough to be deemed the “most single person” at her magazine’s office, budding reporter Penny has now been tapped to write a series of features called “The Dating Game.” From speed dating to Tinder, old-fashioned matchmakers to up-and-coming “dark dating,” Penny now has to go on a lot of dates. Silver lining: meeting new people should be fun, right? But running into her old rival, George, at her first dating event is decidedly not. Not only does the arrogant know-it-all have zero trouble attracting women, wherever Penny goes, somehow he just. Keeps. Showing. Up.

Geo knows he’s right on the cusp of writing success with the chance to have his own syndicated column. All he has to do is follow his agent’s ideas for showcasing different dating avenues, and he’ll pull in enough to help his sister’s non-profit women’s shelter get off the ground. Sure, his itinerary is starting to look strangely similar to his old rival Penny’s, but all’s fair in love and syndication, right?

The more they look for love in all the wrong places, though, the more they start to wonder if it was right in front of their noses all along. Still, the brutal dating scene just might end them, if these two don’t kill each other first.

Thank you to Entangled Publishing for allowing me to review this eARC. This was so cute! This story is about George (Gio) and Penny. They are both reporters for separate companies and both have been given the assignment of fulfilling a "dating itinerary". Basically, they have to try a bunch of diffe ...more

By Sara July 26, 2020

The Dating Itinerary by Brooke Williams a four-star read that almost deserves more. This had all the makings of a five-star read, but it just missed a little something. The characters were good and the set up great, I couldn’t put my finger on what was missing, there was just something that didn’t s ...more

"love is like a needle in a haystack. If you keep searching through that stack, you’ll find it eventually. If you stop looking, it will be lost to you forever."

This was a very sweet and a little old fashioned romance where two journalists meanders into the dating world using a dating itinerary.

I actually found the story compelling and the two main characters were very warm and likable until they just ruined everything for me at the ending unfortunately.

Brooke Williams is a new-to-me author, but I’m going to say right off the bat that I’m going to be digging into her backlist soon! The Dating Itinerary had it all: lots of laughs, some angsty moments, and some emotional scenes that really tugged at my heartstrings.

What I liked most about the book: ...more

The Dating Itinerary!

This was a refreshing romantic comedy. I loved the characters names, and how the Coyne sisters were all named! Their support for each other and the interactions sound so real, I felt like I was sitting at the next table listening! George put on a persona as Geo, who he used to ...more

What's not to love when a book’s opening line is, "Penny Coyne worried she looked like a disco ball. Or perhaps a baked potato.”
The author’s trademark zany humor and quirky characters are evident in this book.
Penny is a columnist writing a feature series on modern dating. The catch? Instead of simp ...more

I have never been so glad to be out of the whole dating scene (by about 25yrs LOL) but I'd hate to be trying to find love in this digital age!

Penny and George have been rivals for a long time. They are both journalists and both hungry for success. But back when they started out they were actually fr ...more

This is a new to me author and this book was super fun read. If this book was a movie (which I could totally see) this would be a total romcom for sure. This author definitely has a sense of humor I mean look at the names of the characters and you will totally see why I say that. I liked both main c ...more

First, it took me ENTIRELY too long to "get" Penny Coyne and her sisters, Quarter, Dime and Nickel. I blame me not getting much sleep and being slow to understand... That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I loved the premise of this story and I loved that George went by Geo - makes him that much mo ...more
