Description from Amazon:
Shayla Sheridan’s a New York native born into big city luxury, but she’s never really fitted in with the “it” crowd. Desperate to make it as a writer and to finally step out from her famous father’s shadow, Shayla decides to take on a tricky assignment across the pond…
Swapping skyscrapers and heels for wellies and the heart of the Irish countryside, Shayla must go about ghost-writing a book of recipes by the notoriously reclusive and attractive head chef of Castle Stone, Tom O’Grady.
The only problem? He has no idea that she’s writing it.
My Review: This romantic comedy is definitely a beach-read type of book with a lot of heart-warming moments in addition to the cotton candy fluff.
It took me about 100 pages to get into this book. The first few chapters were slow and I didn’t feel connected to the main character, Shayla, in any way. Shayla redeemed herself as the story progressed and I enjoyed the tension between Shayla and her love interest. the story was somewhat predictable but overall an enjoyable read.
I would recommend this book to lovers of contemporary women’s fiction and romance.
Favorite quotes: This book had cute little quotes at the chapter headings. Here are a few of my favorites:
“God is good, but never dance in a small boat”
“It’s more difficult to maintain honor than to become prosperous”
“A closed mouth, a wise head”
My rating: 3 out of 5 stars
