Lucy Watson just published a phenomenal debut novel, Shortcake. If you love rom-coms, then you should definitely give this one a read. This is one of the best that I’ve read. I was seriously laughing out loud on several occasions. This wasn’t one of those with just a line or two here and there that put it in the rom-com category. It was most of the book. Emelia Anderson’s inner dialogue and overall personality are going to make you want to add her to your book besties list.
Emelia Anderson was a live-in caregiver for a lovely old lady named Rose. Rose has passed away and Emelia is devastated because she and Rose had become so close. She meets Rose’s family at the funeral and they are not very welcoming or kind. Her handsome, motorcycle riding grandson Ben Crawford is extra cold to Emelia. He becomes even less of a fan after he finds out that his grandmother has included Emilia in her will. He believes she conned his grandmother. Now they are forced to live together because of stipulations in Rose’s will. For anyone to get what she has left them they must live together and fix up her old house.
Seriously this book is steamy and hilarious! You will fall in love with Emelia and Ben. Even the secondary characters were fantastic. Ben’s friends were all amazing and I hope they all get books. This is free on Kindle Unlimited if you subscribe to that or just $2.99 on Amazon.
