Thank you @atriabooks for sending this one to me as a read now on @netgalley and also a #gifted finished copy.

If I had to use one word to describe Eight Perfect Dates I would use the word charming. But since I write my own reviews and make the rules I can use as many as I want so here goes: charming, delightful, happenstance, soulmates, romantic, fateful, serendipity and a book that gives a permanent smile while you are reading it! A book that you don’t want to end!

Synopsis: On a snowy evening in March, thirty-something Noelle Butterby is on her way back from an event at her old college when disaster strikes. With a blizzard closing off roads, she finds herself stranded, alone in her car, without food, drink, or a working charger for her phone.

All seems lost until Sam Attwood, a handsome American stranger also trapped in a nearby car, knocks on her window and offers assistance. What follows is eight perfect hours together, until morning arrives and the roads finally clear. The two strangers part, positive they’ll never see each other again but fate, it seems, has a different plan. As the two keep serendipitously bumping into one another, they begin to realize that perhaps there truly is no such thing as coincidence.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I read this in nearly one sitting and there is absolutely nothing I would change about this story. The pacing was perfect. The secondary characters were enjoyable. It was one of those books you read fast because it was so good, but at the same time you wanted to slow down because you didn’t want your time with the characters to end. I really enjoyed Noelle and Sam. Sam has excellent book boyfriend potential! Put this on your fall & winter #tbr! Out Tuesday September 28th.

**One little teensy annoyance . . . The cover looks like a Christmas book, but it absolutely is not!
