Welcome Isabella Louise Anderson

and CLP Blog Tours!


Today I'm reviewing THE RIGHT DESIGN

as part of Isabella's Blog Tour, and there's a giveaway, too!



Do business and pleasure mix?

In the author's debut novel comes a story about picking up the pieces, letting go of the past, and finding love along the way--even if morals are tested!

Interior designer Carrie Newman could not have envisioned a more perfect life for herself. She had a great job doing what she loved, wonderful friends, and a close relationship with her sister and brother-in-law. Add in an amazing man who she’d hoped would soon become her husband, and her life was perfect. Until one devastating decision ruins her relationship and changes the course of her life.

Determined to make a new start, Carrie leaves Texas and heads to Palm Beach to pick up the pieces of her shattered and broken life. The last thing she expects is to find herself attracted to her first client at her new job--Brad Larson, who has proven himself time and time again to be caddish.

But there’s something beneath the surface of Brad’s arrogant exterior that keeps her craving more of him--something almost sweet that Carrie can’t seem to resist.

Is Carrie ready to take another chance on romance? And will this new design of her life prove to be the right one?


My Review

THE RIGHT DESIGN is a lovely contemporary romance with all the right elements--it's sweet, a little steamy, and there's plenty of girl power!
Main character Carrie comes home to find, instead of an engagement ring, her boyfriend cheating on her.  She takes her dignity and relocates, striking out on her own.  She gets a great job as an interior designer, and her first job is for a known playboy--although he's quite irresistible.  Carrie doesn't want to jump into another relationship, but there's something about Brad that draws her to him.
Isabella delivers a delicious "will they or won't they" feeling throughout the story that won't let you put the book down.  I love her vibrant descriptions of the decor Carrie is working on--the author has some cool fashion sense!  It's well-written and a quick read, perfect for a day at the beach or snuggling by the fire on a lazy Saturday.  I recommend THE RIGHT DESIGN to any romance fan!
