When we meet Zoe, she’s content with her single life, living above the pub she works in with cat Frazzle but feels like there’s something missing. She downloads two apps to her phone and starts using them together to find her perfect match. Firstly, Stargazer, an astrological app which gives her not only her own horoscope but insights into which star signs she’d be most compatible with romantically. Secondly, Tinder; I can’t quite remember if its explicitly named but its a swipe-style dating app. Zoe decides to work backwards from her least compatible star sign, figuring that way the only way is up.
I’ve read a few books this year where our protagonist starts using dating apps for the first time and its a great way to get in some hilarious, cringe worthy first date stories; this was no exception. Zoe has some fairly terrible dates but they make for some really entertaining reading.
Like most of Sophie Ranald’s writing this was an uplifting, easy-reading book which put a modern spin on the tale of a woman kissing plenty of frogs before realising the Prince was already sitting in the corner waiting.
