Lucy - quirky, scatter-brained and witty - is in a rut. Matt, her boyfriend of four years, is terrified of the ''M'' word and refuses to talk about tying the knot, her job is about as exciting as shaving her legs and she feels like she's going nowhere fast. So she decides to shake things up a bit and before she knows it she finds herself waking up next to a stranger, going on a blind date, meeting a gorgeous Englishman and getting her very own creepy love-struck stalker! But despite all this, it's harder than she thought to get Matt out of her head....
Luckily she has her best friends to distract her as they have problems of their own that they need her help with. Vic, her eccentric childhood friend, thinks that her husband is playing away and wants Lucy to help her catch him red-handed. Olivia, her colleague and best friend, has met a mysterious Frenchman on an internet dating site and isn't sure if she should run off to Paris to meet him, or run for the hills?
Filled with fun, humour and a cast of zany characters, What's it gonna be? is a wonderful, sincere and light-hearted tale of friendship, growth and love - with a lovely touch of Mauritius...

Reviewed by Samantha March for Readers' Favorite In What's It Gonna Be? by Cassandra Piat, Lucy knows she needs to make a change. Though head over heels in love with her long-time boyfriend, Matt, she can’t be truly happy knowing Matt won’t ever take the plunge and marry her. She understands that in order to find true happiness, she needs to let Matt go, and find someone who will give her everything she wants from a relationship. After going through the breakup, Lucy is devastated. Her girlfriends try to help her move on, setting her up on blind dates, and distracting her with their own relationship dramas. But nothing is helping Lucy get over her love for Matt. Can she ever truly move on from him? While the cover and title didn’t immediately grab my attention, the synopsis is what pulled me in. And I’m sure glad it did. This is a wonderfully written romantic comedy/chick lit read that had me laughing, shaking my head in frustration, and smiling the majority of the way. Lucy was such a lovable main character. Her quirks made her extremely relatable – clumsy, always late, a little scatter-brained – but she was easily like a friend to me. I felt extremely proud of her for ending her relationship with Matt. It’s easy to settle into a comfortable relationship, but she was determined to find the love that she deserved, and I gave her major kudos for that. The meat of the book had so many humorous moments, but also some serious ones, with the introduction of her creepy stalker. I don’t want to give too much away with the ending, but I will say, I was once again very proud of Lucy for standing her ground. She made a terrific character to center a chick lit story around, and I highly enjoyed this novel.
