What a touching story to read first thing in the morning. I loved it to pieces. The characters are so real. I was honestly disappointed there were no more words. I really wanted to know how their date went. And giving grandmother's phone number was priceless.
This was incredible - so cute, so romantic, so sweet...I could go on and on. Loved it and I want to know the "rest of the story"!
A pleasure to read. Has the "Sleepless in Seattle' feel to it. Very good indeed.
Fantastic. What a wonderful story. Right on its way to be saved as one of my favourites! Many thanks.
Cute story. Loved the killer twist at the end. Very very well written
An interesting read out of the usual! One thing's for surethere'll never be missed connections with God!
Fun story in a clever form. I enjoyed it. Your characters felt real. Great finish!
Hehe - loved your romantic comedy! Great ending.
Delightful with great character development. Love that grandmother.
Wonderfully creative short-story writing. It's all here: character development, humor, clever plot, romance, even a twist at the end. My favorite this week.
As I was reading this I was getting flashbacks of the witty dialogue found in "The Shop Around the Corner", "In the Good Ole Summertime" and "You've Got Mail" I hope it works out as well for these two as it did for the cast of those other romantic tales.
Great light and shade in the verbal table-tennis and the suspense of this entry. I loved the twist at the end - or is this to be continued???
I loved the end - the revelation of whose number he gave her. I liked the gentle progression of the story. It was well written - not autobiographical by any chance?
Delightful. I had to google craigslist to see what it was but that's merely a cultural blip. Excellent, captivating writing.
I thoroughly enjoyed this - it got better and better as I read on, and the ending is PERFECT! Congrats on a writing a winner, in my book. :)
What a unique and creative take on the topic. Most excellent writing!
I loved the way this came about, the formatting made it fun to read, like mini-chapters and the differing POV's really added a good twist to this. Nicely done!
Cute romance :-) Nice touch at the end
