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!
Helen Wright is done with love. Left at the altar then stood up by a blind date, her only ‘significant other’ is her real estate career and her fat, orange tabby, Charlie. When her wealthiest client fires her then bad mouths her all over the city, Helen’s professional life turns just as pathetic as her love life. Her only consolation is a much-needed vacation to Bora Bora to attend a friend’s wedding.
Single again, veterinarian Rick Stark needs only three things: a new practice, a new city, and a new place to live. He’s desperate to move on from his cheating ex-fiancée. Tired of spending the night on a friend’s couch, he jumps at the opportunity to apply for the perfect job on the beautiful islands of Bora Bora. Little does he know how boring a vacation alone can actually get, so upon meeting the shy and introverted Helen, he finds himself oddly determined to help her have fun instead of letting her hide in her overwater bungalow.
Could both of them been wrong about finding love again? And if so, what are they supposed to do when her old flame pops back into the picture wanting to reignite the engagement he once ended?
