The Review . . .
Helen Wright has dreamed about her wedding day all her life, but at the church her fiancé high-tails it out the back door. Not all is lost, however. She’s a talented real estate agent, and her new client could lead to a big commission. Helen’s luck turns south again when the flighty movie star turns out to be more trouble than a ticket to freedom for Helen. With a mean streak and a pack of lies, the starlet puts Helen on the unemployment lineup. Fast forward, and her fat cat eats poison, but it’s fortuitous because she meets a very sexy veterinarian. Alas, Dr. Stark doesn’t want a relationship with Helen, but he does save her cat. When Helen’s best friend announces her wedding will be in Bora Bora things begin to look up. Imagine Helen’s surprise as she’s dining solo in paradise and Dr. Stark asks if he can join her for dinner!
“The Parking Space” is a quirky name for a light-hearted novel with pages of fun. Creative and free of clichés, this little gem makes one heck of an endearing read. The characters are believable and distinctly different. The humor doesn’t really hit the funny bone but it will make a reader smile. Dr. Stark has wonderful book-boyfriend potential, but the opportunity to give any real depth to his character wasn’t taken. Eventually, the mystery of the parking spot is tied up. Don’t miss this tropical tale as Helen’s love life changes with the sting of a jellyfish!
After her fiancé leaves her at the altar and a blind date stands her up, Helen Wright is done with love. Married to her real estate career instead, the only thought on her mind is selling a top listed house in San Francisco so she can finally afford the home of her dreams.
After her wealthiest client fires her, Helen’s vision of moving away from her cramped apartment and the person stealing her parking space vanishes. Her professional life is now feeling just as pathetic as her love life. So when her best friend, Lisa, informs her that she’s getting married in Bora Bora, Helen packs her bags for a much-needed vacation and boards a plane with the excitement of leaving all her Mr. Wrongs behind.
A new practice and a new place to live, those are the only two things that veterinarian Rick Stark needs after finding out his fiancé cheated on him. With his trust in women shattered, he jumps at the chance for the perfect job, leaving San Francisco in the dust. However, while visiting his possible new boss on the islands of Bora Bora, he finds himself in the company of a familiar face—the attractive owner of a patient who he once thought he wasn’t interested in.
Could it be that maybe he was wrong about her? And if so, what’s he supposed to do when her old flame falls into the picture wanting to rekindle what they once had?
