When I first saw this book, I thought it was going to be a romantic comedy based pretty much just on the title. Then I realized that Victoria was a debut author and I figured that even though this book isn’t in my normal wheelhouse I would go ahead and give it a try. I love to support new authors.
Well… it was a good book! I enjoyed the book, but there was just something about it that I couldn’t quite put my finger on that just didn’t give me the extra ummph I need to bump it to it’s 5th star.
The characters were relatable and enjoyable and we can all find common ground with them.
If you are a fan of women’s fiction I think you will really enjoy this novel.
Sometimes the hardest lesson you have to learn is that you can’t control everything. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and trust that it will all be okay in the end.
Camilla Valentini is a planner. Ever since she could write, she would sit down and compose lists of her daily to do’s, her goals, and her dreams. These lists have taken her through most of her life and served her well. She is living in the city that she loves, has a job that pays the bills or at least most of them, and has the best group of friends a girl can ask for.
However when her life gets turned upside down by a fire in her apartment building, she is left with no place to live, piles of burnt manuscripts, and more importantly only one pair of shoes! As far as she is concerned, things couldn’t get worse. Until she gets fired from her job as a copy editor. Apparently, it was a big mistake to not go on that date with the boss’s son.
Faced with some difficult decisions to make, Cami will have to take a close look at who she is and if she even likes that person. Because when it hits the fan, that is when things really start to get interesting and you can become who you were always meant to be.
