From award-winning author, Pamela Ford, comes the first book in a delightful, new romantic comedy series, The Continental Breakfast Club . . .
Allie Parker's had enough. Just because she's a dog groomer, her overachieving family of doctors and lawyers treats her like a child. She's convinced that a successful husband is all she needs to change their attitudes.
So when she and her friends come up with a brilliant new way to meet eligible men, Allie squeezes into her sister's stylish clothes and sneaks into continental breakfast at an upscale hotel to find herself the perfect guy. Before Allie has taken her last bite of syrup-laden waffle, she's met the man of her dreams. But what she doesn't know is that he's a jewel thief who mistakenly thinks she's his contact—and so does everyone else who's after his stash of diamonds.
Suddenly Allie's world is crazily upended. And as she scrambles to prove her innocence and get back to her old life, she discovers happily ever after sneaks up when you least expect it.Buy the book: Amazon ~ Barnes & Noble
Pamela Ford is the award-winning author of contemporary and historical romance. She grew up watching old movies, blissfully sighing over the romance; and reading sci-fi and adventure novels, vicariously living the action. The combination probably explains why the books she writes are romantic, happily-ever-afters with plenty of plot - and often lots of laughter.
After graduating from college with a degree in Advertising, Pam merrily set off to earn a living, searching for that perfect career as she became a graphic designer, print buyer, pantyhose sales rep, public relations specialist, copywriter, freelance writer - and finally author. Pam has won numerous awards including the Booksellers Best, the Laurel Wreath, and a gold medal IPPY in the Independent Book Publisher Awards. She is a Kindle Book Awards finalist and a two-time Golden Heart Finalist. She lives in Wisconsin where she is working on her next novel.
What a wonderful read! I really enjoy the story and how the author brought the characters to life. The characters were likable and relatable. I can relate to the struggle Allie had with her family. Family expectations of you can become pretty overwhelming overtime. Don't get me wrong I love my family but sometimes I feel restricted. They support me and love me but I know they wish I do something else. I'm sure that's how Allie had felt with her family. And I liked her enthusiasm in trying to prove her family wrong about her choice in career.
I am not usually the one to read contemporary stories but this one was a nice surprise. At first I didn't really thought of anything special about the book but it ended up being one of my favorites. It was such a delight to read this story. The pace of the story was good. It was easy to follow along and it wasn't all over the place. I had a blast reading this story and finished it in one sitting. The story gave me such fuzzy feelings all through out and I can't help but smile.
Definitely recommend this book! I cannot wait to read the second book. It seemed I made the right choice in picking up this book.
