From a Readers' Favorite Award-winning author and "queen of the family saga" (Aherman) comes The Parker Sisters, a new spin-off series of the Married in Montana series.
Twenty-six-year-old Ivy Parker is a nurse by day, but an unlikely attraction with a mysterious man will turn her world upside-down as she finds herself in The Dating Game.

What members say
This got all of my emotions involved.
The Dating Game is the second book in the Parker Sisters series. You could probably read this without reading book one first, but I think you'll enjoy them more if you read the series in order.
I'll start off with the narration. Teri Clark Linden has narrated a few other books by Ms. Eckhart. She really does a wonderful job and made listening to this story very enjoyable. I'm really picky about female narrators and she is one of the good ones.
I really loved this story. Ivy feels like she doesn't measure up to her sisters – her two older ones are now married – and she's self-conscious about her weight (she's – //sarcastic OMG// – a size 12) and hasn't dated anyone in a while.
She now finds herself being pursued by a doctor at the hospital where she works and a man (Chris) she met at her sister's wedding. She gets very confused about her feelings for both men and it takes her a while to realize which one is right for her.
Chris is attracted to Ivy and is very disturbed to overhear her sisters saying unkind things about her weight. He wants to date her but he won't play second chair to the doctor who also wants to date her. Chris has his own business and things aren't going well. This complicates things between him and Ivy and he decides to step back.
Even though it makes me a bit sad that at a size 12 Ivy is considered to be plump, I love that Chris thinks she is perfect just the way she is and lets her sisters have it when he hears them saying negative things about her size.
Everything doesn't go smoothly for Ivy and Chris but they get their HEA in the end and this is my favorite book in the series so far.

A good addition to the series
The second story of the series takes us back to Wyoming and the Parker sisters. This time it’s Ivy’s story. She is a maternity ward nurse, with some self image insecurities due to her weight. At her sister’s Taz wedding she meets Chris, a friend of the groom. Chris is a hard working man, rough around the edges and one with whom attraction is immediate.
Overnight Ivy, who never had dates, ends up with two, one with hard working Chris and another with a very polished doctor. This one with ulterior motives.
It’s a story about family , relationships, life’s ups and downs, and about following one’s heart. Also a reminder that what people say to someone , even in jest, does in fact affect how they see themselves.
Another entertaining story in this series.
I wish to say also, that the narrator of the audiobook, Teri Clark Linden , does a very good job with the different voices in the story.
