This is the second book in the Cinderella Project series but the first one that I’ve read and it worked well as a standalone, too. It is a romance with a fairy godmother figure, Hazel, trying to help others – usually friends – to find true love.
This story is mainly concerned with Serafina Scott, a half-Italian, feisty, highly intelligent young lady who is trying to take care of her father by landing a well paid job, leaving her current PhD studies and university work. She’s also something of a tomboy, having been brought up from the age of 5 by her Dad and spending lots of time in the garage helping restore vintage cars. Her new job, just happens to be working for Hazel, helping set up the matchmaking business website and digital presence. It is here that she meets Justin Murdoch, the rugged, handsome, attractive builder currently working on the property for Hazel. Their attraction may well be instantaneous but he’s determined not to bring any romance involving him into the life of Hazel so is stubbornly determined to resist. Hazel, however, has other ideas and you’ll just have to read it yourself to find out how things work out!
It is a lovely tale to escape into and I recommend it to anyone who likes to read romances written with humour and a great range of characters.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me have an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review though I confess to accidentally deleting it after the book had been archived so I then bought myself a copy of the novel so I could still review it!
