Madeline (Maddy) has been tasked with taking over the management of a project to open a new hotel for her wealthy investor boss. She arrives in the Texas desert to find that very little work has been completed and she struggles to get the project back on track. She finds herself a bit out of her depth and a bit too attracted to the head of the construction company.
Is this "chick-lit"? Possibly, but I think that it's still a worthwhile read. The story is well constructed, most of the characters are reasonably well rounded, and there is a sense of humour throughout. I found it easy to read, and although I wouldn't call it gripping, I did find that I wanted to continue reading, right to the end.
It's a light-hearted book, suitable for a rainy Sunday afternoon, and the sort of thing that could fill the odd hour waiting or travelling.
