What they say: There’s no problem Becky Watson can’t fix. Except her own love life…
Struggling single mother Becky Watson longs to revive her career as a life-fixer, working miracles to solve her clients’ problems, no matter how big or small. Since the birth of her two-year-old son she has been stuck preventing wedding fiascos for the richest and rudest residents of the Comptons, a charming, leafy area of southern England known for its artistic heritage.
So when semi-reclusive local artist Charlie Handren reluctantly hires Becky to fix his six-year creative slump, she’s delighted to set him up with a come-back exhibition and Rachel Stone, the woman of his dreams.
Though they get off to a rocky start, Becky and Charlie soon become close. But as the beautiful Rachel becomes Charlie’s muse, Becky is forced to wonder: will giving Charlie everything he wants mean giving up her own happily ever after?
A heart-warming, uplifting romance served with a generous slice of cake.
The Review: Squealy squeal!!! I am so so excited to be on the blog tour for this, a book by one of my favourite bloggers, a blogger loved by all whose blog is a mixture of thought provoking reads and brilliant recipes for cakes, buns and all in between! (Check it out at Art and Soul)
Knowing how spellbinding her blog writing is, I was keen to ingest this, a book about planner Becky, who has been given a new life to fix, that of single father Charlie, who is a painter that has lost his motivation and needs to get it back. I loved both the organising and the art aspect, with both paintings and dreams that were vivid and real, appearing right before my eyes and making me absolutely yearn to go to an art gallery. I had worried some of it might be over my head, given some of the books Claire reviews, but actually I welcomed the culture and learned a bit of Greek mythology along the way! A warm read with many many moments that made me, smile, nod and had me captivated. Gorgeous!
Thanks so much to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review and for letting me be part of the blog tour.
