Sparks Fly

I'm doing two Indie Books Reading Challenges for 2011 - the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge, and the I Heart Indie Books Reading Challenge (more details below). In helping to spread the word about the wonderful selection of Indie books out there, I'm going to be blogging about my progress and reviews. 

My 26th review is of Sparks Fly - a chicklit romance.

About Sparks Fly

If you enjoy books by Nora Roberts, Debbie Macomber, Carly Phillips, and Susan Mallery, get ready for SPARKS FLY by Lucy Kevin, a fun contemporary romance (32,000 words / 170 pages) about the "magic" of falling in love.

Angelina Morgan is a beautiful consultant who practices an ancient art form called Feng Shui. Will Scott is an all-business CEO who doesn't believe anything he can't see and touch. With the help of a meddling ex-wife, a well-meaning best friend, and a matchmaking mother, Angelina and Will are about to find out what happens when opposites attract...and sparks fly. 


 Review

This is only 32,000 words so it's a quick read, but I got into to this story from page one and couldn't put it down. Will and Angelina couldn't be more different - he's a hot-shot business exec, and she's a feng shui consultant - but despite them infuriating each other at times, there's an attraction they can't ignore. Throw in a match-making mum and you're all set to go!

This is a really fun chicklit romance and I will definitely be reading more from Lucy.
 
Sparks Fly is available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
