Lacey Chamberlain has never felt good enough, she’s taken over her fathers’ accountancy and works her fingers to the bone trying to prove she can cope, especially during filing season. She has a well ordered and controlled life, and seriously doesn’t appreciate the marketing firm who move in next door to her quiet office.
The gorgeous and outgoing Alicia Wight leads a creative team who want to play kickball in the hall, listen to loud music, eat pizza – and who never return the bathroom key. She couldn’t be more different than the buttoned-up Lacey, but seems determined to bring her round and drag her out of her shell.
This is a classic ‘opposites attract” romance done by one of the best in the business. The characters are well developed, there’s a decent sized cast with clear and detailed personalities. There’s a romantic sub plot, enough angst to make it work but not so much it drags with the ‘will she wont she roundabout’, a few unexpected twists and a dog who almost steals the show.
Georgia Beers is one of the best in the business and this is her at her best. A five star traditional romance, well written, great story arc and likeable characters. It transports you into another world, makes you care about the people who come feel like friends, and gives off that warm fuzzy feeling of an exceedingly good book.
