Meet Me at Pebble Beach by Bella Osborne

Available for request till 28th of June 2020

I read and reviewed another book by this author in four parts, and I waited until I saw the full book before I decided to read it.

Regan is a woman not living up to her potential, she is messy and a little self-centred. She has a great best friend, a snooty boyfriend, and odd workmates to begin with. Then the situation changes, and she is thrown into chaos. She has to change her life for the better and reexamine all the things she thought she ought to do and what she might like to do. There are future relationships, a hit-and-run and cute animals thrown in to increase the ‘aww’ quotient. Overall she grows, makes tons of mistakes, makes some more and then with the help of a sound support system, she finally sees some light at the end of the tunnel.

The writing of this book is light, and the story flows fast, but the lead protagonist was not a likeable person. Even her growth arc was iffy at best, and her most redeeming character is a golden heart for a homeless man who is about the only person nice to her in the beginning. Basically what I am saying it was not really a book for me but I think there will be a lot of people who will enjoy reading about this woman who plunges headfirst into any plan with minimal forethought. Looking at other reviews as well, I get the idea that I might be in the minority with this one.

I received an ARC thanks to Netgalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
