Laura Furuta - 5 STARS - Awesome read...
This story had me with a smile on my face and at times laughing out loud. My emotions went up and down with Liberty’s and I found myself caring about her with every chapter that I read. There are times when I wanted to give her a hug and others when I wondered what she was going to do next. There are other secondary characters that are introduced, and I enjoyed reading about many of them and their interactions with Liberty. This is a book that hooked me in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until the final page. It is a story I would recommend reading.
CarrIe R. - 5 STARS - Funny, Sweet, Entertaining
This is a wonderful book. There is drama, mystery, romance, and humor all throughout. The story is sweet and flowed very nicely.The ending had me smiling. I was surprised at who the thief turned out to be and the way Libby’s life was turned around. The ending was a beautiful wrap up to such a good book, I could not put it down. I would definitely recommend this book!
Kirchersmiles - 5 STARS - Awesome!! Must Read!!
I read the second book first in this series and when I was finished all I could think of is I have to read the first.This story made me laugh out loud on a few occasions but I smiled literally all the way through. I can seriously see these books being made into a movie and I know I would absolutely love that, they are so much fun and full of fun little twists and turns. I read this one in one sitting and now want to go read the second one again and wait not so patiently for the next.
Katie_83 - 5 STARS - Fantastic Read!
I am a huge fan of romantic comedy chick lit books and I absolutely adored this story! It made me laugh and it made me swoon – something for me every book in this genre should do (in my opinion!!) I loved the author’s writing style, it was really relaxed and I thought the story had a lovely flow to it. The author has penned an amazing debut novel! I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. Anybody who loves a good, well written, chick-lit story should absolutely one click Best Foot Forward today!!
Kerry Baker - 4-STARS - Entertaining
Best Foot Forward by Bea Stevens is the first book in the Liberty Lawrence series. This book is fun and entertaining, with great characters and a full packed story line.
I knew I would enjoy this book right from the start because I found it so easy to fall in love with Libby. She was such a fun character that she immediately appealed to me. She helped to keep the book light hearted but also engaging from start to finish.
Bea Stevens is a relatively new author to me and yet I have come to expect well written books each and every time. This is clearly the start of a great news series and I cannot wait to read more.
Maura - 4STARS - Quirky
BEST FOOT FORWARD is a quick and funny read with a bit of mystery, a bit of delusional thinking and a lot of humor. The characters are fully developed, the settings are well described and the story flows smoothly from beginning to end.
I'm struggling with not giving this book 5 stars, but there is just something about it. Maybe it's that my new bestie is so quirky that I want to dig a bit deeper into what makes her tick. I'm not sure. (It could also be the mood I'm in today)
I will absolutely continue to read this series.
She’s working as a manager (albeit junior manager) at a London hotel, when the boss announces that there has been a theft from his office. Libby couldn’t help noticing some strange marks on his carpet when she was called in for a reprimand recently (not that it was her fault, or anything) which lead her to surmise who the thief is.
Detective Sergeant James Harper, the hunky policemen who is assigned the case, seems interested in her theory – until she names her number one suspect. Libby is devastated, not only because he doesn’t believe her but – more importantly – that this guy knows NOTHING about shoes!
As Libby struggles to convince the sergeant that her hunch is right, her boss that she’s ready for promotion and herself that she’s not really falling for the gorgeous copper, she realises that maybe she’s wrong about the theft, she’s not suited to the hotel industry and that the handsome hunk is married!
