Pippa escapes an abusive relationship and ends up working for a reclusive writer as carer to his wheelchair bound son. I loved the character of Pippa. Unafraid, she jumps right in and insists on the things she believes in, even if it means going head to head with her bad tempered employer. I really enjoyed this book and will be looking for more by this talented and amusing author.
I don't find a book that is absolutely amazing very often. But this one was!
Needing to get away from her abusive boyfriend, Pippa took a job working for Seth as an RN/administrator. When his assistant took a leave of absence he was in desperate need of someone to replace her but finding someone who would work for him was not easy. He was a grumpy man that everyone was afraid of. But not Pippa. Nobody was going to push her around again. I chuckled at how she talked to Seth in a way that nobody else dared to do. He was used to having his orders done without question. She even took on the little boy, turning him from a spoiled brat to a cute little guy. I loved the way that Pippa transformed the lives of all the people around her. I felt sorry for each of the characters in this story, at some point. Even though many of them were wealthy, appearing to have life by the tail, they weren't completely happy.
Both Pippa and Seth were surprised at their feelings for each other. But opposites attract, right? And there's no denying that despite some initial animosity on Seth's part, these two are being pulled together like magnets. I liked the romance but loved the suspense! Who was out to kill them and were they after Seth or Pippa? I was guessing right up until the end.
Blue Clouds is the first book in this series. Which, after reading this book, I'm very excited about!
So if you really enjoy romantic suspense, with a cast of multi-layered characters then you will love Blue Clouds.
