Flying by the Seat of My Knickers

Why run from your troubles when you can fly instead? 

When Caity Shaw is fired from her first job that doesn’t require an elf uniform, her older sister, Rachel, an event planner, hires her to work a meeting in Dublin. Caity jumps at the opportunity to travel abroad and escape her pathetic life. However, even four thousand miles from home, there’s no avoiding debt collectors, an overbearing mother, and haunting memories of a controlling ex.

While in Dublin, Caity suffers a series of humiliating mishaps, causing her to lose even more faith in herself. Caity struggles to earn Rachel’s respect—and to keep Declan, her hot Irish coworker, at arm’s length. Declan repeatedly saves Caity’s butt and helps boost her self-confidence, making it difficult to keep her distance from the charming womanizer. When Declan helps her research her Irish grandmother, Caity discovers the mysterious past of the courageous woman she barely knew might hold the answers to her future.

My Thoughts

This book was short and sweet and a bit silly. Eliza Watson has written a book that will sweep you away to Ireland for some fun and laughs. Katie is jobless and has just got out of a bad relationship. Desperate and in need of a change she begs her sister for a job especially when she hears she need someone to send to Dublin. So off Katie goes to Ireland to work as an event planner, a job she’s never done before. Unfortunately for Katie her overbearing mother and controlling sister’s scrutiny cannot be stopped no matter the distance. What follows is Katie and a comedy of errors guaranteed to make you laugh!

Katie is a tremendously sympathetic and likable character, you just could not help but route for the girl. At times admittedly I did get a bit frustrated with Katie but ultimately I loved her character growth in this book. Something else I really appreciated was even though there was a guy Declan, A total sweetie, Katie wasn’t saved by love. Now the book was left very open ended and perhaps there is romance in the next book. But in this story Katie found her way with friendship and her own strength. That really bothers me when a girl can only get out of a bad situation by falling in love with somebody. I like when she can do it on her own and with the help of friends of coarse! As I mentioned this book was left very open ended there is a second book and I cannot wait to see what Katie gets up to next!

A fun lighthearted read full of quirky characters and lots of humor!
