This quirky, fun book was an absolute delight to read! I enjoyed every moment. The characters came to life, and the story kept me laughing. I liked the book so much that once I started reading it, I couldn’t stop. I read it in one sitting. Not only was the comedy and romance terrific, I also enjoyed touring San Francisco with the characters. In my opinion, this author really knows how to write! I’m eager to read more books by Brooke Williams.
This is a cute, easy read that provides both humor and escape. I love a book that makes me laugh!
I was given a pre-release copy of this book in advance of its blog tour. I also promised to post an honest review. Like several other reviews, I read this book in one day. I totally needed a lift, and this book supplied just that. It grips you from the very beginning, taking the reader on a really fun ride. It has all that a winning story needs, compelling characters, a bit of suspense, romance, and humor. The bonus is that it's also a clean read: no profanity or graphic sexual scenes. Great job Brooke! Looking forward to your next release.
Traffic reporter Kate Covington flies from Omaha to Las Vegas to stop the man she loves from getting married. Only she disrupts the wrong wedding. When the bride storms off, the desperate groom convinces Kate to step in so he can inherit a fortune. Kate Covington is an endearing character with a touching back story. Her seemingly insane behavior comes from a place of vulnerability. She's suffered so much loss that she's reluctant to risk her friendship with Brian by declaring her love for him. Yet, she can't miss out on what she sees as her shot at true love. Chad Leida is a very different sort of personality--confident, decisive. He's not afraid of challenging his powerful parents, but he does need access to his trust fund to finance his dream--opening a horse ranch that serves disadvantaged children. The chemistry between these two characters crackles. But they also complement each other. Kate shows Chad that emotional intimacy doesn't equal weakness. And by exposing her to his crazy, paparazzi-filled world, he helps Kate develop inner confidence and a clearer direction in life. Williams does an equally good job with most her secondary characters, though I found Brian a bit bland. I couldn't quite see why Kate was so taken with him. Also, Ida, who comes to Kate's rescue at her lowest point, is on and off stage in a blink. I think she should have been introduced earlier, so that her help didn't seem so "convenient." The second half of the novel is not quite as well developed as the first half. There are a few too many coincidences--like Ida appearing just when needed and the perfect job opening popping up for unemployed Kate. Another ten to fifteen pages would have helped round out the narrative. However, there were plenty of unexpected plot twists that left me surprised and excited. A happy ending isn't a given for Kate and Chad. They both have to work hard for it and take some risks. Wrong Place, Right Time is part of The Writers Coffee Shop's Afternoon Delight line, and that's exactly how I'd characterize this romance. It's a quick, fun read that leaves a smile on your face.
