Blog Tour & Excerpt: Blind Dating by Kerry Taylor

Today, I would like to welcome Kerry Taylor, author of Blind Dating on my blog.  Please give her a warm welcome!


A light-hearted, funny romantic comedy - perfect for fans of Hilary Boyd, Christina Lauren, Lindsey Kelk, Deborah Cooke, Claire Cross, and Jill Mansell.

When mid-forties, divorced, single-mother-of-three, Kimberly, realizes her own mother has more of a life than she does, she decides to do something about it. Encouraged by success stories from people at work, she joins a dating chat room, ICQ, which starts to rock her world.
All of a sudden she’s a swinging single, online, with extreme dates, a little dirty talk, and a sense of her new, sexy self— until that fateful moment when her long-time chat-room buddy, LonelySingle, wants to meet.
"Are you trying to find a man on Facelook?" her Mom questions, after years of being told it is Facebook!
What if he doesn’t like her?
What if she doesn’t like him?
These are the thoughts, inside her head. Until they meet and realise, that they have been friends offline aswell as online!
What happens next?
A light-hearted, romantic comedy about a single mom finding true love, which was right before her eyes.


Strange — so far, ten girls. Pretty young things with their little shorts and trendy tops. Look at them comparing their tops. One of them even has a low cut top—now that is funny. What does she think she is going to flash? It is strange. Girl clothes in my day looked like girl clothes. What happened to a child being a child? This one is wearing matching hot pants and cowboy boots, which is exactly what her Mum was wearing when she dropped her off. Then, they turn out to be sluts and they wonder why? The only thing different is the girl is wearing a vest, not a crop top like her mother.
OK, the party is in full swing, or so it seems, and still more girls and no boys. I go up to Eric and say, “Where are the boys? Do you want me to call their moms?”
“No,” he replies, “none of them were invited.”
“What?” I ask, puzzled.
“Auntie Christine said ‘Just ask all the girls, and the boys will be jealous, and when they hear that you are having parties with only girls, and that each girl in your year is your friend, they will stop bullying you’.”
“Wow,” I said. Are they that fickle? I thought in my mind.
Nevermind, Kimberley, you worry too much, and at that precise moment, guess who walks through the door? Tom, with my maid of honour, Julie. I try and smile, thinking, It is for Eric—it is his party. Do not cause a scene.
Christine walks over to me and hands me an alcoholic punch which she sharply shoves into my hand and says, “Drink it now!”
