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.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
Over Easy is the first book in The Continental Breakfast Club series. It’s a fun mystery and a quick read.
Three friends in their twenties are all single and trying to figure out ways to meet men. I like the three women and how well they complement each other. Allie is a dog groomer, Bree is a teacher, and Megan is a lawyer. They come from completely different backgrounds but they are the best of friends. They have tried several ways to meet men already, such as joining a gym, but this time they come up with the Continental Breakfast Club. The idea is to dress like businesswomen and go to the continental breakfast at a nice hotel where there should be plenty of businessmen.
The first time Allie and Bree go to a continental breakfast, Allie meets a guy and her life is turned upside down. Unfortunately, it’s not because he’s “the one.” Instead, she is suddenly being stalked and is afraid for her life.
I enjoy Pamela Ford’s writing. The story is written from Allie’s point of view and her thoughts tend to go off into strange places. Once I got used to her wandering thoughts, I enjoyed reading it and wondered where Allie’s mind would take her next.
If you like a lighthearted mystery with a touch of romance and a lot of silliness, you’ll like Over Easy. It’s fun and funny and I can’t wait to read Fresh Brewed, the next book in the series.
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.
