Sometimes life just takes the biscuit …
Abby Spencer knows she can come across as an airhead – she talks too much and is a bit of a klutz – but there’s more to her than that. Though she sacrificed her career to help raise her sisters, a job interview at biscuit company Crumbs could finally be her chance to shine. That’s until she hurries in late wearing a shirt covered in rusk crumbs, courtesy of her baby nephew, and trips over her handbag.
Managing director Douglas Faulkner isn’t sure what to make of Abby Spencer with her Bambi eyes, tousled hair and ability to say more in the half-hour interview than he manages in a day. All he knows is she’s a breath of fresh air and could bring a new lease of life to the stale corporate world of Crumbs. To his life too, if he’d let her.
But Doug’s harbouring a secret. He’s not the man she thinks he is.
I’m actually a big fan of Kathryn Freeman’s writing so, when the chance to participate in the blog tour came along, I could not resist. And I’m glad that I didn’t as the book did not disappoint.
Laughter, characters that make you both swoon and want to punch them (this is obviously theoretical – I would never punch them in real life), and luuuuurve…….
Abby is a little crazy but, having been dealt the hand she has in life, who can blame her? Doug is a strong character and not used to the kind of chaos that Abby brings into the workplace. Or the chaos she brings to his heart…
With strong character- and scene-setting, vivid descriptions, fresh plot, and sprinkles of humour, this is one delicious read. Highly recommended!
Author Bio –
A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.
With two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.
