Tess Brookes has always been a Girl with a Plan. But when the Plan goes belly up, she’s forced to reconsider.
Tess is a young woman experiencing turbulence in her rigid life, something unfamiliar to this bright eyed lass. She has a plan, a perfectionist, likes to be in control. When her life spins out of her comfort zone she steps out of her contained box and lives on the edge, well the edge for Tess that is. Tess is likable, a bit immature for a 28 year old. She’s hesitant but decides to be adventurous and throw caution to the wind, I like this about her. She discovers much about herself as she lets go for the first time. No such thing as accidents as Tess learns through her many tests.
The book is funny, a cast of differing characters, great for a beach read, or in my case a way to escape. The predicaments and questions Tess dealt with, most females will find themselves relating to in some way.
My one huge criticism, far too many f-bombs for my liking, way overused, deterring from its intended impact. Unnecessary. There’s a time and a place along with an effective manner in which to drop an f-bomb, clearly not applied well in this particular narrative. Also predictability was high throughout the entire story, characters actions, scenarios. Cliffhanger ending, which I hate, nothing worse than being nudged to purchase the next book to have resolution.
