Up-and-coming screenwriter Cara Kennedy has the biggest meeting of her career in two days―but for now, she's on vacation. Her short trip to Ireland is all planned out:
See the sites around Dublin
Don't think about her jerk of an ex she was supposed to spend this trip with
Relax with some Irish whiskey
Propose to a sexy Irish musician on Leap Day
Wake up married
Wait, those last two things weren't on her list...
A whirlwind trip to Ireland is supposed to end with a suitcase full of wool sweaters and souvenir pint glasses―not a husband you only just met!
After one-too-many whiskeys, fledgling screenwriter Cara Kennedy takes a page out of someone else's script when she gets caught up in the Irish tradition of women proposing on Leap Day. She wakes the next morning with a hot guy in her bed and a tin foil ring on her finger. Her flight is in four hours, and she has the most important meeting of her career in exactly two days―nothing she can do except take her new husband (and his adorable dog) back to LA with her and try to untangle the mess she's made of her life...
Looking for something fresh, fun, and Irish this St. Patrick's Day? Do I have a book for you!
Don’t hesitate. Don’t question. Don’t second guess. Just take a leap…straight
into Lucky Leap Day by Ann Marie Walker. Buy the book, clear your schedule, and
dive into this funny, endearing, utterly charming story that stole my heart and
refuses to give it back. I laughed, cried, sighed, swooned, and cheered through
the entire story.
Everything about this book checked my happy reader boxes,
from the beautifully developed cast of characters, to the vividly depicted
settings, to Finn’s lopsided smile and Irish brogue (*melts*),
to the sweetly sexy (yes, they can both exist side by side and while love
scenes are all closed door I never felt like I was missing one bit of the
emotion or chemistry between these two) romance, to Cara learning to embrace
her spontaneous side and reach for her dreams, to Oscar the dog who never shares his thoughts (until the
epilogue) but still manages to get his point across (as any dog owner will
understand), to surprising twists and turns, and more.
Finn and Cara danced their
way across my mind as if I was in a dark theater watching them bring
their story to life on a big screen. Which, by the way, they absolutely should
be doing! I want to sit in that theater, munching popcorn while laughing out loud, swooning through heartfelt
sighs, sobbing into tissues when everything goes sideways, and leaping to my
feet, clapping until my hands sting, while cheering until my voice cracks as
their HEA plays out in front of me. Kind of like I did in my own living room while reading Lucky Leap Day.
Do yourself a favor. Don't miss this one.
Best served with a glass of Irish whiskey...but maybe stop at one...unless you're in an Irish Pub being serenaded by a gorgeous musician with a charming Irish brogue. Then you're on your own. ;-)
