Overview

Class of 85

His twenty-fifth high school reunion is in less than thirty days and Henry still has no date. Not willing to be the object of his classmates’ sympathy after his divorce, he turns to an online dating service for help. But things aren't looking good.

Rita has been there for Henry for a long time, hoping their relationship might change, but he only sees her as his friend the bartender. Now Henry has this crazy notion that the answer to his dilemma is a dating service. After watching several unsuccessful attempts—in her bar, no less—Rita decides it's time to take Henry's love life into her own hands.

Maybe all Henry needs is a little push in the right direction to fall in love...

    Ms. Columbus gives brief insight into the world of computer dati

    Ms. Columbus gives brief insight into the world of computer dating. A light hearted search for your soul mate along with the many things that actually could and do happen when setting up dates, only to find the one you want has been there right in front of you all along.

    This is a really nice short story that has you laughing at Henry sense of humor as he tries to find a date for his class reunion, so that he isn’t toted as poor Henry. Although there isn’t much romance the story is still entertaining as we follow Henry as he goes on his blind dates.

    We find out that Henry’s a sweetheart, down to earth and someone you could find yourself befriending. He has a cat left over from his divorce and co-workers who like to mess with his head. Henry goes to the local bar on his way home from work and tells Rita, the bartender everything. Rita we find is secretly in love with Henry and feels that he should now that. She watches as he sets up these dates and at times she almost seems childish in her actions as she storms off.

    I enjoyed how Ms. Columbus made you actually care what happens with the bumbling antics of loveable Henry. It is nice that he ends up with his own happy-ever-after. Review by Robin. Book provided by Publisher. Review Originally Posted @ Romancing the Book.

    Fascinating Read

    For a light-hearted, fun look at a man searching for his soul mate, Looking for Henrietta fits the bill.

    If you're looking for a real romance, though - you may be a bit disappointed. Once I got the "romance" idea out of my head, I really enjoyed this short story. Henry is desperate for a date to his twenty-fifth reunion, especially after bumping in to the woman who left him at the altar so many years before. What's a man to do?

    Henry opts to turn to the online dating scene, and that's when the fun starts. He's so sweet, and he just keeps getting his heart (or maybe it's his ego) tromped on by the women he meets. And even crazier is the fact that his "Henrietta" might just have been right in front of him all along.

    Henry's a sweetheart, simple and caring. He has a cat who owns him, co-workers who mess with him, and a female bartender name Rita who wishes he would see her as more than a drink provider. In truth, as much as I loved Henry, I struggled to like Rita. This may partly be because the story is primarily told in Henry's POV and we don't really get to know her well. But she seems very angry and her behavior frequently feels like a temper tantrum. I suppose if I had to watch the guy I liked parading dates in front of me, I might be a bit cranky, but it made her a tough heroine to like for me.

    Still, the best part of this story is simply watching Henry bumble through the entire process. I never thought about stopping reading - I was attached to the man. He's sweet, charming, unaffected and just a really good guy. He deserves a the happy ending he eventually gets.
