Review

WORKING IT OUT by Rachael Anderson is a wonderful book that encompasses many emotions without one crowding the other. She includes the dynamics of the sister/brother relationship, boy/girl relationship, and work/friend relationship. The story seamlessly flows from one relationship to another.

A chance encounter . . . 

Grace Warren’s life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.

A chance for love . . . 

Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace’s rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he’s every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there’s something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he’s everything she’s sure she doesn’t want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she’s willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.

Grace was fond of looking up the meaning of people’s names to see if they matched the personality of the owner. I found myself doing the same on a couple of names just to test the theory. We’ll leave the theory at that. Seth was a risk taker who didn’t know his own limits. Other characters included Grace’s brother, a paraplegic, and a friend of Seth’s who quickly befriends the two, falling in love with Grace’s brother.

WORKING IT OUT was very well written…

The book included parts about trust, both brother/sister and girl/boy; and it was presented in a way will leave the reader thinking about relationships in their own lives.

The cover of the book is cute and bright, and fits right in with the story-line. WORKING IT OUT was very well written and I didn’t find any grammatical errors. The story had a well thought-out ending. WORKING IT OUT is the first book that I have read by Rachael Anderson. It will definitely not be my last.

I am giving WORKING IT OUT five stars.

About the Reviewer

Donna McBroom-Theriot
Writer. Book Reviewer. Southern Lady. Connoisseur of Chocolate. My Life is like an episode of "I love Lucy!" I'm a writer, book reviewer, and a Southern Lady who loves her Sweet Tea. My blog, My Life. One Story at a Time. is where I've been writing short stories since 2009. As luck would have it, the very first short story I wrote was published within months of my writing it. This quote pretty much sums me up: "Deep in my heart, I know there’s no promise I’ll be free from trouble in this life. In fact, I’m usually either getting out of trouble, currently in trouble, or about to meet trouble around the next corner." Well, you know that old saying, "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions" - that road is usually the one I'm on! And, as much I used to mock (we all grow up eventually) the Cajun dialect, 15 years ago, I found myself marrying the sweetest Cajun boy - complete with the requisite white trawl boots and a trawl boat. I love writing stories about the South and life with our two German Shepherds, and the four kids who meander in and out of our lives as they live their own journeys. Most days you'll find me out on the front porch swing, with the dogs at my feet, a tall glass of sweet iced tea close by, and a good book. It's what life in the South is all about. - See more at: http://mylife-in-stories.blogspot.com/p/about-me.html#sthash.VAmp18XE.dpuf
