Twenty-eight-year old Annabel Green is about to tie the knot with her college love, an aspiring author Jeremy Blake, but her plans for an ideal wedding are rudely interrupted when she catches Jeremy kissing his gorgeous book agent.
Shell-shocked by Jeremy’s betrayal, Annabel retreats into the quiet
routine of TV dinners and solitary evenings. It is then that Annabel’s
best friend, fashion designer Lilly Clayton, sets herself on a mission
to draw Annabel out of her shell. In an attempt to persuade Annabel to
keep an open mind on dating, Lilly takes Annabel for a stunning
makeover, but after Annabel passes on a date with a dashing
entrepreneur, Lilly decides that more drastic measures are needed. Lilly
invites Annabel to see a palm reader who gives Annabel a lucky charm
that is supposed to help her find true love.
A few weeks later, during her trip to Paris, Annabel meets a
handsome Parisian, and as the two embark on a whirlwind romance, she
starts to believe in the power of the talisman the palm reader has given
her. But what Annabel doesn’t know is that Lilly is hiding a secret
that could unravel her faith in her newly found luck in love.
I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to more from this author. Its a light, fun, enjoyable read and I am glad I have read it.
The characters are well developed and you really like Annabel and Lilly. And you can sympathize with Annabel when she catches Jeremy cheating. Lilly is a great friend and would make a fun lead character in her own story. You are glad she and Annabel are friends and you want both to get their HEA.
The settings are realistic as well. You can easily visualize the office where Annabel works and you can imagine what her apartment looks like. Also while in Paris you can easily pretend you are there with them. Even if you are like me and have never been there.
If you are looking for an enjoyable fun read you can not go wrong with this one.
