Rachel Richards is stuck in a rut. Her boyfriend Adam barely notices her most of the time and her life in London isn’t as exciting as it should be.
When the company she works for, Snug, asks her to oversee the opening of a new store in Iceland, she jumps at the chance for a change of scenery. Exploring Reykjavik with the help of Icelandic tour guide Jonas, Rachel discovers that life is out there waiting to be lived. As she falls in love with Iceland, she begins to see what is important to her and wonders whether the life she left behind is what she wants after all...
This book was delightfully cozy and fun to read.
On the surface Rachel is having a successful life. She has a handsome boyfriend and just got a big promotion. However, her success is starting to show cracks in her relationship. Rachel lands in Iceland knowing that she really needs to think about making some changes in her life. She doesn’t realize that her time there is going to push her in directions that she wasn’t sure she was ready for.
Iceland is a place that I’ve always wanted to explore and it was fun to see it through her eyes as she settled in for her stay. Her relationships with her new coworkers and potential love interest were well done. I would definitely read more by this author.
