Thirty Days Hath

:My random thoughts:
I'm a pretty big fan of Mrs. Havig's. I try to read every book of hers that I get my hands on.  90% of my kindle ebooks are hers, and some of my favorite novels have her name on the cover. So, this review will probably be all positive....

:Publisher's Description:
Blind dates are for wimps!
 At least, that’s what Adric Garrison thinks.
Can you blame him? Thanks to his sister and brother-in-law, Adric is about to embark on a year of month-long, chaperoned, blind dates.  awkward.
He didn’t ask for it. But Adric still finds himself living what seems more like a bad TV reality show than a new life in Fairbury.
Once an ordinary (if prematurely gray and vertically challenged) guy, Adric is now Fairbury’s newest “most eligible bachelor,” and dreams of permanent bachelorhood loom on the horizon. Will he call it quits before the year is out, or will one of his “girls of the month” change his mind?

:info to know:
Author: Chautona Havig
My recommended age: 13+
Their recommended age:12+
Publisher: Create Space
Number of Pages: 334

Characters: As always, her characters were quirky, fresh, and unique. Starting it, I was wondering how she could write 12 different woman without mingling the personalities.  But, she pulled it off without a hitch!  Each Lady had her own quirks, faults, and high points (Some were just more faulty then others...).   And Adric, of course, was fantastic.  I did love the relationship between Adric and his sister, his brother in law, and his nephews. It was sweet.  
I finished this book in a day.  I just couldn't put it down. As each chapter told a month of the year for Adric, and his Lady of the month, I was pulled into the book, and just couldn't put it down.  Very fast, and enjoyable.

Writing Style:
Perfect.  She writes with detail, while still leaving a lot for the reader to imagine.  Her humor seems to fit my idea of humor, and the characters are just so individual and lovely. Or unlovely. Some of Thirty Days Hath's characters weren't very lovely....
I had a ebook of this, so I didn't get to see the cover that well, but I still like it. ^.^
Ending: She finished it well, while still leaving room for a sequal.
World Building: I really like this about Mrs. Havig's books. Most of her novels are staged in the same fictional town.  So I got to hear from Willow and Chad and the rest of her Rockland characters.  It has a sense of familiarity to it.  In a way, when you pick up one of her books, you feel like you are going to your second home.
  Language: None.
Drugs and Drink:  aside from much coffee, none. ^.^
Romance and sexual content: The whole book is a christian romance.  It's about blind dates, and going out on a limb to find your soul partner. But, it was clean.  There was no sexual intercourse (YAY!!!!!) and I can't remember any kissing. Hugs, yeah. 
Do you really need me to say I give this book a whole hearted:
