**I received a free copy via NetGalley for an honest review.**

 

Wow! That's really my first reaction after reading this book, and it happened at the end of just about every chapter. I L-O-V-E-D this book! It should never have ended. I need more. Thankfully there is a second book coming out, so I won't have to wait too long.

 

Caity Shaw's life is a train wreck. She has an ex who has become a stalker, she was fired from her last job because of said ex, and she is working for her sister who trusts her not at all. The story opens with her in a bratwurst costume for an event her sister is running. The hilarity continues from there. Caity must navigate her new job and Dublin, while fending off the snide remarks of her co-worker, Gretchen, and avoiding an attachment with her hunky, charming Irish co-worker named Declan. While doing all of that, she also tries to work through her insecurities and prove to herself and her sister that she can be successful. It's a funny, laugh-out-loud book about a young woman's misadventures that will leave you smiling and clamoring for more.

 

I laughed. So much. At least once per chapter but usually more than that. Caity reminded me of myself, and her internal dialogue was hysterical. At one point she made a comment to herself about her social life consisting of playing bingo and eating fries at home with her parents, and I almost spat out my drink. I have been there and said the same thing! (But to be fair, bingo is freaking awesome) Declan was dreamy but definitely a player. I was proud of Caity for being strong enough to recognize that in spite of his nice butt and his charming personality. I'm interested, though, to see how their relationship develops in the next book. Because he will definitely be in that book, no doubt about it. Gretchen will hopefully be nowhere to be found. And Rachel, her sister - ugh, she is why I am glad I am an only child.

 

All I can say is read this book. Buy it, borrow it from a friend, get a copy from the library - whatever you have to do! If you're having a bad day, this will cheer you up. If you're having a good day, this will be the cherry on top.
