Happy-Go-Lucky
Every workplace has that one person you don’t want to mess with. At James & Peterson Investigations, that would be Cameron Grant: sullen, grouchy, intimidating, oh yeah, and sexy as hell. He can make your soul wither with a single disapproving glare. And he never, ever socialises with his co-workers.This is why Maisie Wilkins, happy-go-lucky ray of sunshine, can’t fathom why Cameron finally decided to show up at their annual office Christmas party. Every year he received an invite, and every year he failed to attend. But not this year.Curious as to why he’s there, Maisie can’t resist sitting next to Cameron. Before she knows it, she’s had one too many drinks and is drunkenly hailing a cab back to his place. Office party flings are not something she normally does, but despite his intimidating character, Cameron has a charm she can’t resist. Or maybe it was just those five gin and tonics blurring her judgement.Whatever the reason, Maisie now has to navigate the awkward, tension filled waters of sharing an office with someone she’s slept with.

Yes, I couldn’t lie to myself any longer. I was falling for this man, drowning in the sea of him and there was no swimming back to the surface. ”HAPPY GO LUCKY” is a light-hearted office romance between a quirky super sweet woman and her gorgeous but grumpy and standoffish co-worker. This was a fun read that had it all—an endearing Heroine, swoon-worthy Hero, some deliciously steamy moments, and a mystery that provided some entertaining intrigue and unexpected plot twists. This is why I’m so in love with L.H. Cosway’s writing!!Maisie Wilkins works as a researcher at a private investigation firm. She loves her job and her solitary life. She always has a cheerful disposition and goes out of her way to please others because she can't stand the thought of anyone disliking her. On the night of her office Christmas party, she decides to make an effort to interact with Cameron Grant, her gorgeous but severely anti-social co-worker. She never expected to end up in his bed later that night. Fearing the possibility of becoming fodder for office gossip, Maisie asks Cameron to agree to forget they ever slept together. For some reason, she has it in her head that people think of her as a joke and that there’s no way someone like Cameron could ever have feelings for her. She couldn’t be more wrong.When Maisie is offered a promotion at work to become a private investigator, she asks Cameron to be her mentor. The ability to keep things platonic during Maisie’s training proves to be almost impossible for the both of them. Throw in the difficulties of keeping their romance a secret in the office along with being immersed in a complex and dangerous case, this story was well and thoroughly entertaining.I loved how while Maisie and Cameron might have seemed to be polar opposites, their differences made them fit like two perfect puzzle pieces. They helped each other to step outside of their comfort zones. I know that readers are going to fall in love with these characters.Here are my overall ratings:Hero: 5Heroine: 5Plot: 5Angst: 3Steam: 4Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5”HAPPY GO LUCKY” is currently available!!!

But inside, she’s insecure and in need of acceptance from those around her. When she sees her grumpy co-worker, Cameron, at the annual Christmas party alone and well, looking grumpy, she sucks up the courage to try to make him feel a part of the party. Too many gin and tonics later and suddenly Mr. Grumpy is anything but and Maisie is searching for her lost bra during her morning after escape.I absolutely loved Maisie. She was definitely the type of person that brings sunshine into the room but she wore her feelings on her sleeve. Her character was so well written I could totally identify with her as I saw several of my own fears and insecurities within her. The fact that she grew in confidence to overcome some of her “easy pushover” tendencies and learned to stand up for herself was inspirational. Maisie felt real to me as did her actions and reactions towards Cameron. Nothing about her felt contrived or over the top. She was a heroine that had faults and while she might dwell on them at times, she was smart enough and strong enough to recognize them and try to change. While we never get Cameron’s point of view, the author was able to convey through his own minimal awkwardness, frustrations or loss of words, what he was feeling at times. I would’ve loved to have known exactly what he was thinking because I do believe he often wanted to shout “Mine!” to the world but was unable to do so, constrained as he was by a promise he made to Maisie. Even as the heroine was evolving into a stronger, better her, Cameron too was changing. He was learning to let go of the iron grip he had on life and allow himself to enjoy life, smile, and open his heart up. For a hero who started out as a real jerk, he quickly stole my heart.Everything about this book was fun, sweet and steamy. As this couple work together to solve a mystery, they struggle with keeping things between them professional. It was quite amusing to watch them fight against the chemistry they felt each time they were together. Despite their battle, this was not an angsty read. There was no push and pull, no real relationship drama. Just two people trying to figure out how to manage a relationship within the workplace while keeping it a secret. The mystery portion of the story was multi-layered and had some twists that I never saw coming. I kept expecting a big violent showdown, as is the norm in a lot of books, but not here. This is a realistic story involving what could be a realistic crime and two people who work the clues to solve it. Overall, I loved the refreshing feel of this book. It never felt heavy or weighted down, the pace flowed smoothly and kept me engaged throughout its entirety, and the secondary characters supported the story as well as the hero and heroine. Simply put, this was a feel good, mystery romance with a bit of a slow burn (after this couple’s one night stand) that will carry you away to another world and leave you smiling in the end.Heroine POVSafe (view spoiler)[no ow/om drama – although both h/H have some jealous insecurities that have no foundation, just simple getting to know you feelings; h not a virgin; H not a man-whore (hide spoiler)]Triggers (view spoiler)[H’s mom was murdered in their home when H was small boy while he was locked in bathroom – off page, no details of attack (hide spoiler)]

What I felt for him was transcendent, too big and intangible to even put into words. Maisie Wilkins works as the primary researcher at a private investigation firm in the seaside town in England called Torquay. She’s friendly, kind, and constantly cheerful. Her childhood nickname was Happy-go-Lucky, and she was a people pleaser who others often tried to take advantage of. She considered herself slightly awkward, generally uninteresting, but a good person. Her love life had been pretty boring for a while, but she did have a work crush on the head investigator at her firm. She’d admired Cameron Grant from afar for years, and he’d often starred in her fantasies. He was quite handsome, and her attraction to him had always been harmless since she assumed he’d never be interested in her.When Maisie attends the annual office Christmas party, she is shocked to see Cameron there. He never shows up for functions, and doesn’t socialize with co-workers. He’s usually cranky, and keeps to himself. He’s intimidating, and a bit terrifying, but when Maisie notices he’s sitting all alone, she decides to be polite, and sit with him. They are complete opposites, but somehow they have some conversation, a few drinks, and end up back at his place. They spend an unforgettable night together, and then have to navigate working together. Maisie can’t afford to jeopardize her job, but she can’t deny how badly she wants her sexy, co-worker with an attitude. -There was something mesmerizing about Cameron.-It wasn't often that people riled me, but it seemed this man had a knack for it.-However much he might frustrate me in real life, when Cameron kissed me, I forgot all about how aggravating he could be.-He'd kissed me like he was starved for it. Happy-go-Lucky by L.H. Cosway is a sweet, funny, steamy workplace romance that’s captivating and delightful. Opposites attract and we get a story packed with chemistry, mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this book and loved Maisie’s character and how she evolved throughout the story. ***NOW AVAILABLE***https://amzn.to/2TIqIPl

Can Maisie manage then tension of seeing the man she slept with every day at the office? And will their fling turn into more?I loved Maisie and Cameron right from the start. She was absolutely lovely, her sweet and bubbly personality was infectious, and she’s also super smart. Cameron was her complete opposite personality wise. He’s a complete grump but equally clever and observant. I really enjoyed their slow burn office romance and how much they rubbed off on each other. He helped her be more assertive and turned into a swoon worth hero.The P.I. backdrop this romance unfolded in also provides intriguing mysteries, wonderful secondary characters with interesting office dynamics, and topics of interest such as environmental responsibility and the importance of being accountable for one’s actions. I can’t wait to see what’s next in this series or anything else L.H. Cosway writes for that matter. Happy Go Lucky is a full length standalone contemporary romance by author L.H. Cosway. It’s written from the heroine’s point of view with a lovely happy ending and no cliffhanger.* I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author. The excerpts are from that copy.

    DNF @80%I cannot continue with this book. Its very repetitive and boring. One of my biggest pet peeves in books is when the author intentionally drags out the suspense of the H and h finally getting together. So you have one quick sex scene at the beginning and then just a bunch of 'heated looks from the hero that made the heroine gasp for breathe' in every chapter. And this goes on for like... 10 chapters. Also, I couldn't connect with the heroine because I found her to be a huge square. And OF DNF @80%I cannot continue with this book.

The battle for a relationship between these two was unexpected and so fun to watch develop. Grant was gruff, elusive, combative, a loner, and her superior.

It also had some office drama, but honestly I could have done without that. There were parts to this book that I really enjoyed and liked reading, but there were also parts that had me rolling my eyes and wanting to punch certain characters. Maisie didn't start out as the best heroine for me and it was hard to connect with her in the beginning when she was trying way too hard to make her co-workers like her. It was like Cameron said, she was just too happy. But the more I read and the more time she spent with Cameron, the more I appreciated her character and started to like her. The mystery I liked a lot and I really enjoyed that there were moments that shocked me. I do wish that the mystery went with the romance more, though. It felt like there were times that this was strictly a mystery book and then other times if was more like a forbidden office romance, and not many times where they mixed together. Separately I enjoyed both of those storylines but since it was all one book I would have liked it they actually went together more than they did.

Hope author will write more books about them, especially Ellen's and Julian's story."I dont see the merit in lying. I've been lied to in the past and it didnt turn out well for anyone involved.""Cameron exhaled heavily. "The problem is i like seeing you way to much.""Oh". The air left me for a second as his attention lowered to my mouth. He gripped my elbow and rested his other hand at my hip."I like seeing you, Maisie. Not being able to touch you is the problem.". He spoke low, and i trembled.""How long then? A few months? Years? You cant live your entire life trying to please everyone, Maisie. Somebody's always going to have a problema with you. That's just how world works."I watched Cameron as he stood by the helm, moving the boat from its spot in the marina, and was struck by how incredible sexy he looked. If Cameron Grant private investigator was a ten on the attractiveness scale, then Cameron Grant sailboat captain was a fifteen. Possible sexteen.

I love opposites attract as a trope because of that sweet reader's satisfaction of learning together with characters that we are not that much different and also how our presumptions about other people are so wrong. And this book delivered that. I would say I am more of a Cameron then Maisie. It was hard to relate to that happy go lucky nature. But she wasn't annoying which surprised me. Moreover, I was surprised by how brave she was at times. I loved the subtle way of how the book deals with workplace harassment and overall work experience. At times authors tend to be preachy with topics like this, but not this book. I would love to read more books with other side characters that we meet in this book *cough Theo *chough. *Thanks to the author for the copy of the book in exchange for an honest opinion ( all opinions are my own except playlist which I made based by authors Spotify list for those of us who don't have access to that platform)

It’s no wonder we ADORED Happy-Go-Lucky! Talk about a fun, sexy, totally swoon-worthy, endearing read! We adored Maisie, her friends, her family and of course Cameron Grant! We really ‘get’ this author’s humour and the cute Maisie Wilkins had us grinning from ear to ear.L H Cosway really does write some fabulous heroes and heroines. They’re fun, feisty and vulnerable all at the same time, and we also love a good office romance, and boy were there some sizzling office dalliances between the grouchy, unsociable Cameron, and the happy, eager to please Maisie. We’ll never enter a stationery cupboard without getting all hot and bothered EVER again! “You know what I think?” he asked, expression intense. “What do you think?”“I think we both have a lot to learn from each other.” Centred around the medium-sized private investigation firm of James & Peterson Investigations, we meet thirty-year-old Maisie Wilkins, a researcher who is such a sweetheart. Maisie just wants everyone to like her. She’s friendly sweet, attentive, and this young lady doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. The thought of a co-worker being annoyed with her would send her into a spin.‘I would much rather be like me and get hurt than be like Cameron and never be upset by anyone.’Cameron Grant is the head investigator at the firm and the opposite of Maisie. He’s closed off, doesn’t mix or socialise with the other employees and pretty much glares at anyone who approaches him, and he couldn’t care less what his co-workers think of him, Cameron is also Maisie’s ‘work crush.’ “Is that what you do? You keep away from people so they can’t hurt you?”“No, I keep myself away from people because most people irritate me.” One drunken Christmas party sees Maisie go against everything in her personality by sleeping with Cameron – well, she was sozzled, and he is irresistible in that handsome cool way…so you can’t blame the girl! But… they must work together and put their moment of passion behind them. Yeah right…not with their chemistry!!‘Cameron Grant? His affection was so rare. I imagined it must be wonderful to be on the receiving end of all the love I was certain hid behind his stoic, near impenetrable mask.’Being this is set in a PI firm, there’s a bit of mystery and intrigue surrounding a certain case Maisie and Cameron take on which adds to the story. It’s a fabulous ‘whodunnit’ mixed into the romance that kept us on our toes, as Maisie and Cameron try to unravel a case that appears to have many layers.L H Cosway has written some of our favourite stories so it’s no wonder this lady is an automatic 1Click for us. In Happy-Go-Lucky she has delivered yet another heart-warming, romantic and sexy story with the subtlety that consistently draws us in. Whether it’s in the humour or emotion she injects into her stories, there is always a balance to the endearing way she brings her stories to life, never failing to spread warmth and happiness into our hearts. Yep, we LOVED this book. “You are relentlessly cheerful.”“And you’re relentlessly grumpy.”“We’re a match made in heaven.” Whilst we would’ve liked a little more time with Maisie and Cameron, we hope to meet them in the next book (about different characters), and we may have squealed with delight when we realised the connection to Fauxmance!

This woman. It’s really hard not to like Maisie, even when you’re scratching your head at how she chooses to handle certain situations, because she truly is a good person. I loved her quirks and how strong she was, even when she didn’t see it. Cameron is...well, yeah, grouchy. He’s blunt and, at times, a bit callous, but once the carapace of disinterest starts to crack, you find that he has a heart of gold, it may be a little bit tarnished, but it is a good one.Cameron and Maisie’s journey to their HEA was a lot of fun. On the surface they are opposites, but underneath it all, they actually aren’t as opposite as one would think. I loved their awkward moments as much as the moments that not only brought them closer, but made take a look at themselves and start to evolve into better versions of themselves. There are a few bumps in their road, but nothing OTT and I loved where they were at in the end.This really was a fun read. You get a little opposites attract, office romance, slow burn (to an extent) and a nice little bit of mystery/suspense added into the mix, which made for an engaging read. And as for the secondary cast of characters, they definitely ran the gamut, but I loved Nick and am crossing my toes that we’ll see him again, but am thrilled that Lilah will be getting her own HEA because we get a bit of tease at the end about it and it looks really good!Note: The author’s spotify playlist for this baby is AWESOME!!! ~ Copy provided by the author & voluntarily reviewed ~

    Maisie’s bubbliness was part of her charm, but her intelligence was what I liked most. And while, Cameron was a grump, he was extremely observant and honest to a fault.

I liked the interactions-whether it was work or play-because I never knew if funny, steamy, or in the moment was coming up next- I just knew I’d be grinning like the Cheshire Cat! I loved Maisie and Cameron! Cosway’s Maisie’s bubbliness was part of her charm, but her intelligence was what I liked most. And while, Cameron was a grump, he was extremely observant and honest to a fault. However, even he couldn’t withstand Maisie’s sunshiny disposition:)The romance was subtle and slow, but very good!

A lovely romance, horrid coworkers, and one heck of a case kept this reader happily turning pages into the evening! I hope this becomes a series of their adventures because I simply adored these two!

And as I understand both sides, some of Maisie's attitudes irritated me and made me want to get into the book and tell her to stop wanting to please everyone.I loved the relationship between Cameron and Maisie, I think the interactions between them is the way they were gradually changing and finding a middle ground as their relationship progressed. The interactions between them were fun, smart and romantic and it was impossible not to cheer for them.The secondary characters also added the story each in their own way, and at the end of the book I wanted to know Lilian's story. Happy - go Luck is a book that has romance, fun times and even a thriller in the background that made me cling to the story to the last page.I Received an unreleased copy of this book

One of my favorite things is the different brand of quirk that you’ll find in each new L.H. Cosway book, and this one was no exception. There’s a little mystery, a little thriller, and a lot of heart. It was sweetly satisfying, fun read. Definitely recommend! ~ Shelly, 4 Stars

It’s no wonder we ADORED Happy-Go-Lucky! Talk about a fun, sexy, totally swoon-worthy, endearing read! We adored Maisie, her friends, her family and of course Cameron Grant! We really ‘get’ this author’s humour and the cute Maisie Wilkins had us grinning from ear to ear.L H Cosway really does write some fabulous heroes and heroines. They’re fun, feisty and vulnerable all at the same time, and we also love a good office romance, and boy were there some sizzling office dalliances between the grouchy, unsociable Cameron, and the happy, eager to please Maisie. We’ll never enter a stationery cupboard without getting all hot and bothered EVER again! “You know what I think?” he asked, expression intense. “What do you think?”“I think we both have a lot to learn from each other.” Centred around the medium-sized private investigation firm of James & Peterson Investigations, we meet thirty-year-old Maisie Wilkins, a researcher who is such a sweetheart. Maisie just wants everyone to like her. She’s friendly sweet, attentive, and this young lady doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. The thought of a co-worker being annoyed with her would send her into a spin.‘I would much rather be like me and get hurt than be like Cameron and never be upset by anyone.’Cameron Grant is the head investigator at the firm and the opposite of Maisie. He’s closed off, doesn’t mix or socialise with the other employees and pretty much glares at anyone who approaches him, and he couldn’t care less what his co-workers think of him, Cameron is also Maisie’s ‘work crush.’ “Is that what you do? You keep away from people so they can’t hurt you?”“No, I keep myself away from people because most people irritate me.” One drunken Christmas party sees Maisie go against everything in her personality by sleeping with Cameron – well, she was sozzled, and he is irresistible in that handsome cool way…so you can’t blame the girl! But… they must work together and put their moment of passion behind them. Yeah right…not with their chemistry!!‘Cameron Grant? His affection was so rare. I imagined it must be wonderful to be on the receiving end of all the love I was certain hid behind his stoic, near impenetrable mask.’Being this is set in a PI firm, there’s a bit of mystery and intrigue surrounding a certain case Maisie and Cameron take on which adds to the story. It’s a fabulous ‘whodunnit’ mixed into the romance that kept us on our toes, as Maisie and Cameron try to unravel a case that appears to have many layers.L H Cosway has written some of our favourite stories so it’s no wonder this lady is an automatic 1Click for us. In Happy-Go-Lucky she has delivered yet another heart-warming, romantic and sexy story with the subtlety that consistently draws us in. Whether it’s in the humour or emotion she injects into her stories, there is always a balance to the endearing way she brings her stories to life, never failing to spread warmth and happiness into our hearts. Yep, we LOVED this book. “You are relentlessly cheerful.”“And you’re relentlessly grumpy.”“We’re a match made in heaven.” Whilst we would’ve liked a little more time with Maisie and Cameron, we hope to meet them in the next book (about different characters), and we may have squealed with delight when we realised the connection to Fauxmance!

When Maisie is offered a promotion, the two make a pact to forgo romance in favor of her training as a new investigator. However, their chemistry can't be denied, and the sexual tension is testing their resolve.There’s just something so special about Cosway’s characters! They’re endearing with the perfect amount of vulnerability. They are perfectly flawed and genuine.Maisie Wilkins and Cameron Grant both work at James & Peterson Investigations. She was the firm's researcher and he is the head investigator. They couldn't be more different. Always a smile on her face, she's the happy-go-lucky sort, where her glass is always half-full, and no matter the situation, she finds a bright side. His perma pissed off glare, along with his bark and build make him an intimidating man. Although gorgeous, he was grumpy, grouchy and anti-social. In short, they were perfect for each other. ❝With Cameron, it was like there were more feelings inside of me than my body was capable of holding.❞ Cosway has such a unique voice. I've not found another author who sounds like her. Her words flow beuatifully and effortlessly. A forbidden love story full of tenderness and passion, HAPPY GO LUCKY was the perfect weekend read!I was provided a review copy by the author; this did not influence my opinion of the book nor my review.

    Cosway’s Happy-Go-Lucky is a quirky, chick lit story about two colleagues at an investigative firm who succumb to their love connection while solving a mystery crime. If you like your heroines sweet and your heroes stoic then Maisie and Cameron’s story is for you.Maisie, or Happy Go Lucky as her parents call her, is a researcher at an investigative firm who ends up sleeping with the hunk investigator of the office, Cameron. Though their one night together launches this opposites attract, office Cosway’s Happy-Go-Lucky is a quirky, chick lit story about two colleagues at an investigative firm who succumb to their love connection while solving a mystery crime. If you like your heroines sweet and your heroes stoic then Maisie and Cameron’s story is for you.Maisie, or Happy Go Lucky as her parents call her, is a researcher at an investigative firm who ends up sleeping with the hunk investigator of the office, Cameron. Though their one night together launches this opposites attract, office romance, they agree to keep their relationship professional when they begin working together which they soon learn is easier said than done. Maisie is the type of heroine I adore – the girl whom everyone overlooks EXCEPT the quiet, sexy man whom all her coworkers drool over. She initially comes across as a slight pushover but I love her transformation as she grows closer to Cameron.Cameron is the type of hero I eat up - someone who doesn’t show much emotion at first since he’s quiet, stoic and serious yet it’s when his tight control slips that we see his true feelings come out. He’s not overbearing or arrogant because that type wouldn’t jive with Maisie’s character. Instead he’s someone you want to crack open and keep all to yourself. If anything, I honestly wanted more of him as he seemed to be less of a focus as the story went on.I would overall categorize this book as chick lit because I saw more of Maisie’s overall transformation and because the story focused more on the mystery the two were investigating versus their budding romance. This was a bit different than what I was expecting given the book blurb and past Cosway books where the relationship development is front and center. I would have liked to have seen more focus on their angst with the struggle to stay apart instead of how they worked to solve the mystery but that’s just me and my taste since I’m not much of a mystery/romantic suspense fan. Even once they finally got together the story just moves right back to the mystery. A whole week goes by without a mention of them seeing each other again personally which just seemed odd given the build up to that moment.Cosway is a favorite author of mine because she excels at creating unique stories, characters and settings (circus performers, illusionists, parkour athletes, etc.) and she does the same in Happy-Go-Lucky in creating a unique mystery to solve. I honestly don't know how she came up with this who done it which had a lot of pieces woven together at the end.If you’re a big fan of mysteries or love opposites attract romances and office romances, then you’ll enjoy this book.**ARC received in exchange for an honest review**

Underneath it all, he is loyal, chivalrous and capable of the most swoon-worthy moments.  He is the dark to Maisie's light.  The frown to her smile.  The rainy day to her sunshine.  It's when both Maisie and Cameron develop a kind of truce, that sparks fly and friendship and passion unfurl, until all of that repressed sexual tension becomes a tangible thing within the story, and the office cupboard is somewhere that every woman NEEDS to visit with a man like that.'Nick's friends can be a little much.  At least if you come, there'll be one person there I find tolerable."I resisted the urge to grin. "Tolerable, you say?"Now his eyes practically scorched as he stroked a hand down my hair, his voice a husky whisper. "So very fucking tolerable."Happy-Go-Lucky is a sweet, comedic and thoroughly amusing office romance with a touch of mystery and a lot of butterfly-inducing romance woven throughout.  I bet by the very end of this book, you'll be smiling and swooning and daydreaming a wee bit about some lovin' near the photocopier.

But after his encounter with Maisie, he finds himself caring a whole lot about his perpetually happy office mate, and the way that she can turn his most foul of moods into a happy moment...~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Happy-Go-Lucky was a delightfully sweet office romance featuring a sexy holiday party mishap between the happy (sometimes walked-all-over) Maisie and her utterly adorable, yet prickly co-worker, Cameron. From the intriguing antics of these private investigators to the slow burn romance between Maisie and Cameron, this book was a entertaining and supremely enjoyable read.Maisie is a people pleaser. From bringing weekly doughnuts for her office mates, to doing favors she will never see reciprocated, she enjoys going out of her way to make people happy. But one conversation with the observant and overly blunt Cameron, has Maisie rethinking her stance of sometimes being a little too nice. Cameron may be a grump, but he makes it quite clear how much he enjoys the presence of Maisie and her goof ball ways. Office politics and water cooler gossip serve no interest to Cameron... but he would never turn down a little fun in the copy room with the intriguing Maisie...This was such a fun read! Maisie and Cameron's story was a slow burn romance with a few relationship hiccups along the way, and all kinds of mysteries to be solved by these two brilliant private investigators. I loved both Maisie and Cameron's characters, with their little awkward moments and rampant sexual tension, every scene they shared together was better than the last! I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.Check out the Blog!http://nightbirdnovels.com/2019/08/18...Follow Me on InstagramFollow Me on FacebookFollow Me on Twitter

Cosway was just as amazing as her other books. Cosway has this writing style that not only pulls the reader into the story, but makes you feel as if you are the main character living this extraordinary life.PROS:1) Maisie was such a likeable character. Sure, there were times when she was insecure, but who isn’t? I could 100% identify with Maisie, because I know what it’s like to have a job where you want everyone to like you, but there are those few co-workers that make your life miserable. Granted, Rory had his own level of crazy-mean, but I thought that added to the story. There really are those people in life that want everyone else to be just as miserable as they are. I thought Cosway portrayed this perfectly.2) Who doesn’t love Cameron? He has the angst thing down to a T, but he has these moments with Maisie that make her and the reader see a different side to him. The backstory helped, too. I want more Cameron!!!3) The side characters were a great addition. Sometimes I find the friends of the main characters to be annoying, but I loved Lilah, Theo, and the other characters that popped up.4) The storyline was interesting and I often didn’t know what was going to happen. I’ve never found mysteries to be that exciting, but Cosway designed this book so you have an inking as to who the bad guy is, but when you find out just who has been helping the bad guy, you will absolutely lose it . . . but in a good way.5) The dialogue, writing style, and overall readability of this book was fantastic. Bravo!CONS:1) There were certain scenes that I thought were too short. For instance, after Maisie and Cameron make their discovery during the hunt and then the surprise with Damien at the end. I think the Damien part will be expanded when Lilah and Theo have their story, but I still wanted a bit more. It seemed like it wrapped up too easily and quick.2) I wanted this book to be longer. I know that it took me a couple hours to read it, but I love Maisie and Cameron so much. I wanted to see them go on an actual date and interact without having to worry about a case.Even with the two, small cons, this is a fantastic book. I’ve always found it hard to put down or dislike a L.H. Cosway novel, and this one is no exception. Whether you have read Cosway before or not, pickup this book and give it a shot. I have no doubt you will be diving into her other books as soon as you finish this one 

I enjoyed the fact that Maisie really didn't have a clue how desirable he found her. I found their little hot moments of intense attraction thrilling, as well as the little tingling touches between them.

He's gruff where she's sweet and he's no-nonsense where she's a little meek. They both helped the other to change for the better and took their strengths to change each other's weaknesses. I really loved that. I also loved the detective work. If you're a fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, you will 100% love this book. It had a very similar vibe with the whole who-dun-it theme. Everything came together in the end and for once, I was completely surprised at the ending. I usually figure these things out fairly quickly because clues are constantly dropped, but in this case there really wasn't. It was really well done. Overall, I highly recommend this book because it was just such a fun read. Definitely pick it up, you won't regret it!

    I liked the characters quite a bit but I didn’t really care for the way she laid out the story. It was pretty flat and a bit humdrum. The relationship between the H&H was lovely though. I guess I expect more from Cosway’s books since they’re been several I’ve really enjoyed

I don’t know how she does it? She’s clever!I couldn’t wait for the full book to come out and see how the story developed- I wasn’t disappointed!I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review.I’ve split this story into 4 headings…Funny- The authors humour really shines in this book. Had me chuckling throughout. The swimming pool scene in particular made me laugh my head off resulting in weird looks from the husband. I regularly see an aqua aerobics class going on at my local gym and the thought of Cameron in amongst that just made me giggle!Relatable – Very believable characters, ordinary and most of us will probably know people like them, they could be real people. I saw myself in Maisie quite a bit. I’m not as needy to please people but I’m definitely a smiler and a happy person like her. Her goofy humour was refreshing and the way she subtly pulled Cameron out of himself was too sweet. I also loved the way her confidence grew through the story allowing her to stand up for herself more.Swoony- Cameron’s grumpy hotness has you gripped and Maisie is sweetly oblivious to the depth of his feelings towards her. The little touches and restraint were equally as swoony as the full on uncontrollable moments.Mystery- This story isn’t just about the characters, there is also a mystery/crime to solve! The whole whodunnit aspect was exciting. The twisted reveal of how different characters were involved in this during the last quarter had me diving into the next chapters unable to stop reading.I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Maisie and Cameron and I hope we get to experience more of their adventures in the future.And boy, I can’t wait…

They were the perfect example of meeting your soul mate and bringing out the best in each other. Cameron is blunt, and at times he seems harsh, but Maisie needed to understand that she doesn’t have to be liked by everyone. Cameron helped open her eyes. In return Maisie’s happy go lucky personality brought lightness to Cameron. She makes him laugh and he genuinely likes her even tough he doesn’t like anyone. I loved the mystery that unraveled in this book as Cameron and Maisie work together to solve a case. At times I felt like the romance was taking a back seat to the mystery. I would have liked a bit more of Cameron and Maisie as a couple. I am also a big fan of dual POV so getting into Cameron’s head probably would have helped. All in all, I really enjoyed this novel. It is one of those books that just puts a smile on your face as you are reading it. Well done!Copy provided in exchange for a voluntary review
