Who wants to win a paperback copy?

Keep reading to read my review and for your chance to WIN!! 

A charming, hilarious romantic comedy told with sharp insight and sarcastic wit, for readers of Helen Fielding, Maria Semple, Emily Giffin, or Jennifer Weiner.

We switch. I bait.
Let me help you snag a date.

All through college, Blanche Carter was known as the love doctor in her sorority. Now she’s parlayed her talent into a unique consulting business: she runs the online dating profiles of Washington D.C.’s most eligible women.

Armed with a battalion of rules, Blanche expertly helps her clients optimize their profiles and ace that first date. But although she’ll happily message handsome strangers (and fend off dick pics) for other ladies, Blanche’s most important rule is the one she has for herself: no relationships. She’s seen too much heartbreak to believe in real love anymore.

When a former fling pops up among the matches for one of her favorite clients, Blanche gamely messages him on her behalf. Blanche is definitely over him, and this is how she’ll prove it. But if she doesn’t watch out, Blanche might end up not only screwing over a client-and possibly tanking her entire business-but breaking her rule about love as well . . .

My 4 STAR review for Switch and Bait 

Switch and Bait is the second novel by Ricki Schultz. I was lucky enough to read her first Mr. Right-Swipe on vacation last year. Imagine my surprise when I got a request to again review another Schultz novel and added bonus…I would be enjoying it again on another beach vacation! Which let me just say… Schultz should be required beach reading material. I was very excited to read this book. I loved her first. You can read my review of that one HERE.

Schultz brings a refreshing fun and young perspective to her novels. With fun charismatic characters that insert themselves in some of the silliest of predicaments.

Switch and Bait centers around Blanche. A single girl helping others find love through online dating.


“When a former fling pops up among the matches for one of her favorite clients, Blanche gamely messages him on her behalf.”


As you can imagine this begins to blur the lines between client and a perspective “match”…

I found this to be a very easy read. Perfect for a relaxing day at the beach or poolside if that better suits your summer plans. With quirky characters, a second chance romance that makes you believe in fate, and intermittent with giggle-worthy scenarios I once again tip my hat to Ms. Schultz.

I could say more about this book but that would break my “spoiler-free” rule. Discover the amusing and entertaining writing style of Mr. Schultz. You can pick up a copy of Switch and Bait below.
