Lemons and Lemonades : My Midlife Dabble in Online Romance by David H Mathews is a non fiction book on relationships and dating. This book has humor and can even be categorized as a memoir.

The cover of the book is just perfect as per its idea. The cover has a keyboard and a heart is their. This gives us an idea about the thought process of the book. For a person who judge by a cover, will surely find it luring.

The title of the book is tricky an the author has used his smartness in it. Lemons and Lemonades surely grabs the attention of the readers and it doesn’t match with the cover. So, to know more about it, one can pick this book.

“What you are about to read is frequently salty, occasionally convoluted, and in all ways, very personal. These true and sometimes ribald tales did actually occur during my online dating dabble between wife number two and wife number three…”

Neither a primer on online dating, nor a gender-biased lament on love gone wrong, David H. Mathews’ memoir, Lemons and Lemonade explores the connections and disconnections he made while searching the .com world for romance.

After subscribing to a dating site, David struggles to concoct a suitably provocative profile, stumbles and falls with several mismatched matches, then finally connects with, and promptly marries Clare, the love of his life. Actual email exchanges chronicle their blurringly fast courtship.

David shares his honest-to-God interactions with honest-to-God women in the voice of a plain-speaking Indiana farm boy who spent his youth playing basketball, fondling cheerleaders, baling hay, and shoveling manure.

The book talks about the situations and the experiences of the author in his marriages. This is a personal book and the way he delineates his view points is hilarious. The concept of burlesque can be seen in this book. The author talks about online dating and the way he struggles to update the details in it. These interactions surely makes you laugh your heart out. Further, we find self mockery element in it.

The style of writing is quite cool and it attracts the attention of the readers. The descriptions are subtle and the narration is personal. The book surely has wit, humor, sarcasm and some of the dialogues makes us laugh too. It is a light book to read and one doesn’t get bored while reading. Honestly speaking, this is just an average book for me as I could find editing errors in it. This was a bit turn off and at times I found the thoughts are exaggerated.
