Review: Meeting Mr. Unexpected by Inge Saunders

The Blurb
Can Emma fall for Mr. Unexpected when she doesn’t believe in Mr. Right or even Mr. Right Now…? 

Primary school teacher Emma Cupido compares the notion of “The One,” with believing in the Tooth Fairy. When the school holidays starts, she heads for her brother-in-law`s beach house in Strand, South Africa and stumbles on more than she bargained for. 

Hollywood heartthrob, Damian Davidson flees LA thinking his beach house in SA would be a safe hideout from his sex scandal. He’s had his fill of manipulative women and when he mistakes Emma for a crazy fan, all hell breaks loose. 

Emma and Damian get off to a rocky start but first impressions can be deceiving. Is there more to Damian than the superficial taint of Hollywood? And what happens when she agrees to a trip to LA? Will Emma become a believer in “The One” or just another Hollywood scandal? 

My Review
Sometimes you read a book and you wonder if the author is as interesting and engaging as the characters or if it’s just good writing. That’s what came to mind as I read Meeting Mr. Unexpected.

I knew it was a romance going in, but I kept wondering how it would end. Emma and Damian lived in such different worlds and seemed like complete opposites in so many ways. I couldn’t grasp how things could ever end up happily. I’ve got to have more faith sometimes. Everything worked out just the way it should. Perfectly without that corny aftertaste.

Ms. Saunders took me to a South African hideaway beach (where I laughed, gasped, and said “Oh, my”) and then to fabulous glitzy Hollywood. In both settings the romance was intense, yet sweet. It still has me smiling.

I give this story five out five crutch shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon.
