Reader's Favorite 5-Star seal

How to Rate a Soulmate is the story of a modern woman. Meet Sara. She is thirty-nine, happily single and working at an ad agency, but dreams of writing espionage novels. Her friends have paid for her to see a psychic to mark the momentous occasion of her pre- fortieth birthday. Sara finds out she was a Viking wife in a former life and a slutty Viking wife at that. She is also told that in order to find true love in this life she needs to love herself. Hence, The Plan. Sara embarks on a series of beauty treatments that are costly and painful, the ultimate goal in her sights being liposuction. Accompanied by her friends and colleagues, join Sara on her quest for self-improvement and the obstacles she faces in this witty book by D.L. Fisher.


This is a gem of a book, funny yet full of angst. D.L. Fisher has filled How to Rate a Soulmate with some awesome characters. Ash – and his bookstore – is a favorite of mine, the spinster sisters lurking in the aisles are hilarious and provide comic relief. Sara, however, is my ultimate woman and I would quite happily sneer at stick-thin supermodels with her and compare cottage cheese textured thighs! This is a perfect summer read and you will feel like you have been on a roller coaster of emotions. Sara is not your usual twenty- something heroine; she is a woman with issues and hot pink dildo named George. Come on, what’s not to love?
