Review of Wildflower Bay Pt 1 by Rachael Lucas

The bit on the back...

Isla's got the designer clothes and dream job as head stylist at the most exclusive salon in Edinburgh. The fact that she's been so single-minded in this quest that she's forgotten to have a life has completely passed her by - until disaster strikes.

With her flaky flat mate AWOL and even her reliable old dad a bit distracted, Isla is out of options.
Forced into a corner, she heads to the remote island of Auchenmor to help out her aunt who is in desperate need of an extra pair of hands at her salon.

Finn is thirty-five and reality has just hit him hard. Now his best friends are about to have a baby and everything is changing. When into his life walks Isla . . .

This is the first part in Rachael Lucas' latest release. It's serialised in three parts which you can buy separately and you can now also buy all three parts in the full novel Wildflower Bay.

The story is all about hairdressser Isla and the gorgeous Finn. Isla's the queen of designer clothes, at the height of her glowing career and living the dream. Until, like the blurb says, disaster strikes! And disaster it is Isla finds everything she thought she'd accomplished taken away from her in an instant and is subbed in to cover for her aunt on the island of Auchenmor when she meets impossibly handsome Finn!

Isla is a little bit stand off-ish, used to her high flying life in the capital and struggling to come to terms with the come down. I can't wait to see how her character develops throughout the story but can tell that only good things are to come. Also, hello again to Finn! If you've read Sealed With a Kiss you might recognise him!

There are so many things to like about this series opener but one of my favourite things is the Scottish setting! More often than not I read books set in the USA or in England and reading about Edinburgh and the fictional Auchenmor was very refreshing! If you're a fan of Cathy Bramley then you should definitely check out this series and Rachael's other work.
