I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Why run from your troubles when you can fly instead?
When Caity Shaw is fired from her first job that doesn’t require an elf uniform, her older sister, Rachel, an event planner, hires her to work a meeting in Dublin. Caity jumps at the opportunity to travel abroad and escape her pathetic life. However, even four thousand miles from home, there’s no avoiding debt collectors, an overbearing mother, and haunting memories of a controlling ex.
While in Dublin, Caity suffers a series of humiliating mishaps, causing her to lose even more faith in herself. Caity struggles to earn Rachel’s respect—and to keep Declan, her hot Irish coworker, at arm’s length. Declan repeatedly saves Caity’s butt and helps boost her self-confidence, making it difficult to keep her distance from the charming womanizer. When Declan helps her research her Irish grandmother, Caity discovers the mysterious past of the courageous woman she barely knew might hold the answers to her future.

Caity Shaw is in need of a job. Her sister provides her with a temporary job at a meeting for a big corporation in Ireland. Running from her abusive ex in the states, Caity’s life is in shambles. While she works this job she is trying to make amends with her sister and hope for a chance at more permanency in her life. She makes mistakes and friends along the way and learns a lot about life.

In ” an Oyster Shell – In my opinion, it was an incomplete narrative that I would not recommend.

The Pearls – The irony of the title was cute. The concept of the book was quaint. The setting was fun. There were some funny moments in the book.

The Sand – This book felt incomplete to me. There was not a strong plot line. Everything felt just touched on and not developed. The characters were weak. I feel like the author could have done more with the setting. This book had a lot of potential but in the end, I felt it wasn’t realized.

About Eliza Watson

I am a #1 Kindle Bestselling Author! My first attempt at creative writing was in fourth grade. My friends and I were huge Charlie’s Angels fans and I would sit in my bedroom at night writing scripts for us to act out at recess the following day. I was Kelly Garrett. The journey from fourth grade script writer to published author wasn’t an easy one, but it was always an adventure and the final destination was well worth it.

When I’m not traveling for my job as an event planner, or tracing my ancestry roots through Ireland, I’m at home working on my next novel, bouncing ideas off my husband, and my cats Quigley, Frankie, and Sammy.
