How Far Would You Go To Find That "One"?
One lady told me she’d snuck into a gated, highly secured hotel room to meet her “soul mate”, a popular reggae singer. She’d put on her best running shoes to scale the back gate, and just in case she got spotted and had to make a run for it. She did get caught and thrown out on her “tooch” but she also got an autograph and a dinner invite from said celebrity.
Another guy, a visitor, had moved to Madagascar to meet a girl who he had been corresponding with via the internet for more than a year. He planned on marrying her the first chance he got but what he hadn’t planned was getting caught in a storm, hitching a ride with a crazy drunken sea captain and arriving in Madagascar 2 weeks late. However, he was well compensated for his troubles because they got married six months later.
A 20‐year‐old woman from England worked her way through the islands for six months on various boats ‐ catamarans, sailing boats, motor boats, because she dreamt of finding her soul mate in the Caribbean.
Some of their strategies worked while others fell flat, but they got points in my books for trying. How far would I go to find that one? I’d close shop right now and get a move on it if I was certain he was out there! I’d steal, I’d cheat, I’d lie to find him. Ok…now that’s just me being over dramatic and silly. I’d let him do the stealing, cheating and lying but I wouldn’t judge. What would you do?

My Book Review:
In 'Til I Find You, author Greta Bondieumaitre weaves an entertaining contemporary romance story set on the tropical island of St. Lucia that follows the dating trials and tribulation of twenty-five year old Tisha Cole and her twenty-three year old cousin Drew Cole.
For the past six years, receptionist Tisha Cole has had a love life from hell: from cheaters, sex changers, to one who abandoned her when she got pregnant, she's seen it all but still believes that there is still one good man out there for her. That is until her latest dating disaster with a dirty older man makes her reconsider being single, so she decides that she's had enough and is off the dating market.
Tisha's cousin Drew doesn't believe in the whole love fantasy, she's a strong hardheaded law student who doesn't see the need in having a man, she has stopped dating altogether. Drew lives vicariously through her cousin's dating horrors, so she tries to help Tisha keep her hopes of meeting Mr Right alive with a made up dating spell.
Love has a funny way of changing things, and these two cousins are in for a surprise when they unexpectedly meet best friends Dwight and Craig. But secrets, deceptions and a sexy entrepreneur named Nathaniel adds more speed bumps along their path to finding love.
'Til I Find You is a fun fast-paced short story that revolves around the dating trials and tribulations of Tisha, Drew, Dwight, and Craig. Filled with humorous dating hell disasters and emotional baggage from the past, the reader follows these four young people as they unexpectedly find love, only to have misunderstandings, miscommunication, secrets, and deceptions threaten to derail their budding romances.
This story will tickle your funny bone, have you shaking your head in amazement at their crazy antics, and finally leave a satisfied smile on your face. The only thing that confused me when reading this story was the author's inclusion of the description of Tisha's large "aristocratic" nose or "beak" as she calls it throughout the story, it made no sense to me why it was so important to be added in the story, other than maybe as an explanation of self-consciousness? I nonetheless enjoyed reading 'Til I Find You, it is an entertaining romantic story of finding true love with speed bumps and crossroads along the way.
