First Blush

Author: Rebeca Seitz
Publsiher: Glass Road Media
March 2014
Genre: Contemporary novella

From the author of the Sisters, Ink series comes a fun new novella about finding your way…at the beach. 

Elizabeth Bakersfield may live in the gorgeous town of Naples, Florida, but she is not the thirty-year-old she envisioned. Her husband left with a Miami Dolphins cheerleader. Her job prospects are nil. The rent is due. Her best friend is living a thousand miles away, building a career in NYC. And her closest companion is the cockatiel Johnny Carson. 

The job front starts looking up when she’s offered the position of caretaker of Ganderley’s – a library, kind of. Elizabeth’s job is to loan out the priceless antiques and cars amassed by the widowed Ganderley sisters. Easy, right? Sign things out, get them back in two weeks. And, if she runs into trouble, there’s the gorgeous Ganderley nephew with the British accent, Nicholas Harrington, waiting in the wings with help. 

But Elizabeth is about to learn first-hand that possessions – and gorgeous Brits - bring their own kind of drama. If she doesn’t figure out how to sidestep it, her job (not to mention the start of a new life) might be over before it ever really began.

FIRST BLUSH was simply fun. It did start out a little slow, but by the time it got to the violin I was very interested in where it was going.  A British man, the accent, ah, love. And Elizabeth is in over her head even though she doesn't know it. 

I do want to know Nick's secrets. How did he come upon the experience he has.... but that isn't answered in the book. I want to read more of Elizabeth's and Nick's story. Delicious read. Loved it. 5 stars.  93 pages. $2.99 on Kindle.
