Wildflower Bay Part 1 by @karamina

By Pamelascott

Isla's got the designer clothes and dream job as head stylist at the most exclusive salon in Edinburgh. The fact that she's been so single-minded in this quest that she's forgotten to have a life has completely passed her by - until disaster strikes.

With her flaky flat mate AWOL and even her reliable old dad a bit distracted, Isla is out of options.

Forced into a corner, she heads to the remote island of Auchenmor to help out her aunt who is in desperate need of an extra pair of hands at her salon.

Finn is thirty-five and reality has just hit him hard. Now his best friends are about to have a baby and everything is changing. When into his life walks Isla.


[The keys felt reassuringly expensive]

I'm not sure how I ended up buying this book in three parts as you can buy it as a whole. I feel some of the impact is lost by the book being split in this way. I enjoyed this first part but didn't think it was anything special. I'm not a hairdresser and know nothing about the way it works but found the way Isla loses her job ludicrous and completely unbelievable. I just didn't buy it and didn't find it plausible. I was intrigued by Isla moving to Auchenmor. I look forward to finding out what happens to her and hope Part 2 will be lot stronger.
