Is love worth the risk?
Math teacher Haleigh Parde has no desire to change her single status until she receives an invitation to her high school reunion. With her ex spreading rumors she needs a date and fast. Desperate times call for desperate measures and Haleigh finds herself meeting a blind date at a neighborhood bar called Amarillo Sour . . .
After watching Haleigh crash and burn, app developer Ian Henning makes her a proposition. If she'll provide honest feedback on his new dating app, he'll guarantee her a date to knock the socks off her former classmates. Even better, he—and the other Amarillo Sour regulars—will help her navigate the rocky road of dating.
Through setups ranging from awkward to absurd, Haleigh discovers her matchmaker might just be better than the matches. And Ian wonders if she's the answer to everything he's worked for professionally. Or is she something much, much more . . .

Counting on You is full of very likable and entertaining characters. I loved every minute that I spent in Haleigh's world and in the Amarillo Sour bar. Once again, Laura has created a wonderful story that grabbed me from the first chapter. I was totally immersed in the story line and enjoyed watching Haleigh and Ian work through the dating app issues, and their own issues. I always feel so comfortable with her characters and I love reading about their lives. Also, I'm so excited that this is only the first book in Laura's new Amarillo Sour series. There are so many other interesting characters in this book and I can't wait to learn their stories.
Full review at: http://thequirkyromantic.com/counting-on-you-laura-chapman-review/ Counting on you by Laura Chapman is the first installment in the Amarillo Sour series. It is a quick, funny, light-hearted and entertaining read with believable and likable characters. The “dating phobia” actually worked here. It was believable and it laid a solid foundation for the story to come. A girl like that would feel jittery and could need a dating guide and all the tips and tricks she could get. I loved the dynamics, witty dialogues and easy bantering of lead characters. A few moments in there were adorably cute and others were of the laugh out loud variety. Funny cute romp and short quips from Ian were highly amusing. I was wonderfully surprised by reading this book. It was quick paced and casually done. It had fun and cuteness radiating off it in spades. It was a light, funny, sweet, delightful, and refreshing read with an easy plot. Add sassy, funny and humorous characters into the mix and it was a complete package. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Counting on you.
