Book Review & Giveaway: Fresh Brewed by Pamela Ford

Breanna Mitchell is on her way to a relaxing vacation at the ocean. Maybe she’ll even have a beachside fling to help her get over a recent breakup.

But when a tropical storm makes her destination hotel uninhabitable, a chance encounter at continental breakfast delivers a fabulous option—with a catch. She and her friends can stay at a privately-owned, three-story oceanfront home—if she pretends to be the girlfriend of the owner’s heartbreaker grandson, Ethan. Since he won’t even be there, how hard could it be?

Everything is going swimmingly until Bree drinks too much wine and regales the family with romantic tales about her relationship with Ethan. His adorable brother Adam gets suspicious. His marriage-minded grandma gets engagement fever. The beautiful woman next door gets teary-eyed.

And then, Ethan unexpectedly arrives. Suddenly Bree is about to get everything she’s ever wished for—but is it what she really wants?

My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

I just read Over Easy and was looking forward to seeing what adventure the girls in The Continental Breakfast Club were going on this time (or getting themselves into). I found it interesting that Over Easy was what I would consider a mystery and Fresh Brewed is chick lit. It shows Pamela Ford’s diversity as an author and also makes me wonder what the next book will bring.

Fresh Brewed is told from Bree’s point of view. She is going on vacation with her friends Allie and Megan. Their vacation is turned upside down by a tropical storm. They’re still able to go but their hotel is damaged so they end up staying with the family of Kristin, a girl they met at a continental breakfast, of all things.

I really like Bree, Allie, and Megan. They’re independent single women who are looking for “the one.” Actually, Allie thinks she may have found hers and Megan was burned when she was young so she’s happy being single. Their new friend, Kristin, fits right in although she tends to try to “fix” things for her brother Ethan.

Fresh Brewed is fun, fast reading. It’s chick lit at its best with lots of humor and a little romance. I can’t wait to read the next book in The Continental Breakfast Club series!

    I’d like to win this book because both Fresh Brewed and Over Easy seem like very interesting and novel reads. I also love the idea of Starbuck’s GCs! 🙂
