Oh Crumbs by Kathryn Freeman
Today I am so happy to be on the blog tour for Oh Crumbs by Kathryn Freeman. Many thanks to Rachel (@rararesources) for inviting me to take part.
Sometimes life just takes the biscuit …
Abby Spencer knows she can come across as an airhead – she talks too much and is a bit of a klutz – but there’s more to her than that. Though she sacrificed her career to help raise her sisters, a job interview at biscuit company Crumbs could finally be her chance to shine. That’s until she hurries in late wearing a shirt covered in rusk crumbs, courtesy of her baby nephew, and trips over her handbag.
Managing director Douglas Faulkner isn’t sure what to make of Abby Spencer with her Bambi eyes, tousled hair and ability to say more in the half-hour interview than he manages in a day. All he knows is she’s a breath of fresh air and could bring a new lease of life to the stale corporate world of Crumbs. To his life too, if he’d let her.
But Doug’s harbouring a secret. He’s not the man she thinks he is.
Douglas Faulkner has no idea why he decides to employ Abby Spencer as his new PA. She arrived late, talks too much and had a strange stain on her blouse. He likes things organised and tidy, she tends to prefer chaos and mess! So what made him do it?
You won’t have to read far into Oh Crumbs to find out.
Abby Spencer is just adorable!
Your heart goes out to Abby’s family when you meet them on what is the unhappiest day of their lives. From that moment on the Spencer’s just enchant you more and more as each page turns. There is no doubt that Abby is a likable character but you could never predict what she would say next….and I loved it!
Doug has a past and a hard exterior which perfectly compliment his drop-dead gorgeous good looks. When Abby is around he turns into a much happier person.
Is he too much of a tough nut to crack? or will she turn him into a total sweetie?
Heartwarming, funny, enchanting and completely compelling, well done Kathryn Freeman, you nailed it!
Thank you to Rachel, the author, and NetGalley for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
Author Bio –
A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.
With two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.
