What do you do when your life of travel begins to unravel?
Caity Shaw has come a long way since her appearance as a sausage at her first meeting in Dublin. The shadow of her abusive ex is fading. Learning about her Irish grandmother’s past has brought her family closer together. She’s building confidence as an event planner, along with her client list. And she’s no longer always flying by the seat of her knickers while traveling abroad. However, she is nervous about flying solo at her first meeting without her sister, Rachel, or her Irish love, Declan.
When Caity travels to the fairy-tale city of Prague, grim reality soon sets in. She’s stuck
working in a historic hotel with her archenemy, a psycho planner, and a resident ghost. The romantic notion of meeting Declan in exotic locales is proving more difficult than she’d imagined. Maintaining balance between her professional and personal lives is becoming a losing battle. And when she’s wrongly accused of a crime, she must fight to prove her innocence.
Everything Caity has worked so hard for—Declan, her reputation, and family relationships—begins to bite the dust!
I love this series so much, it’s constantly evolving and every new book always hits the spot.
This time we get to visit Prague as Caity is part of an understaffed events crew managing a corporate event. There are more of the fun mishaps that happen in this line of work that I’ve come to expect from this series – you just know that some of these are anecdotal rather than pure fiction!
Caity Shaw started this series as a wreck, taking a pity job from her sister as an events planning assistant (dressing up as a sausage to promote a client) in Ireland so she could escape her disaster of a life back home . Now she’s kicking ass and taking names, professionally speaking, even if she doesn’t seem to think so. She conquers each problem as it comes, working with her colleagues as an equal rather than needing them to coach her on what to do.
Her search for her Irish family tree continues and she’s developing a knack for investigation, her enthusiasm for researching ancestry turns out to be a great conversation starter and helps her make friends.
I love Caity as a character – she changes in each book and I love it. She’s still the kind, thoughtful and somewhat daft woman she’s always been but now she’s really starting to hold her own rather than let her family or friends dictate what she does. I can’t get enough of the ‘phoenix rising from the ashes’ vibe in this series, I’m desperate for her to get her happily ever after but I’m sure she’s going to have to confront her past before the author will allow that to happen.
This is a series you have to read in its entirety to appreciate the slow burn character development but you won’t regret it, it’s like catching up with your best friend and seeing her get her life together after a bad patch.
