Friends becoming something much more in this hilarious romantic comedy from author Ann Marie Walker. A whirlwind trip to Ireland is supposed to end with a suitcase full of wool sweaters and souvenir pint glasses—not a husband you only just met!
After one-too-many whiskeys, fledgling screenwriter Cara Kennedy takes a page out of someone else’s script when she gets caught up in the Irish tradition of women proposing on Leap Day. She thought she might have dreamt everything, until she wakes the next morning with a hot guy in her bed and a tin foil ring on her finger. Her flight is in four hours, her clothes are all over the room, and she has the most important meeting of her career in exactly two days—and on top of everything else, her husband has a dog who thinks Cara is a perfect surrogate mother, despite the fact that she has never been much of an animal lover…
Deciding to work things out stateside, Finn and her new fur baby accompany her to LA, where Finn spends his days going on auditions and his nights charming his new bride, leaving Cara to wonder whether this is real love, or if Finn is another aspiring actor just after her Hollywood connections? With limited time on his tourist visa, will Finn be able to convince Cara that she’s the right girl for him, or will time run out on their Hollywood ending?
Comical, uplifting, and sweet!
Lucky Leap Day is a heartwarming, amusing tale that takes you into the life of up-and-coming screenwriter Cara Kennedy as she juggles a broken heart, a lacklustre job, a potential career advancement, and a spontaneous marriage to a dishy, Irish cab driver on a special day that comes around only once every four years and after way too many whiskeys.
The writing is light and playful. The characters are kind, easygoing, and clever. And the plot is a fun, flirty, beguiling tale full of tricky situations, tender moments, humorous mishaps, self-discovery, friendship, romance, happiness and quirky traditions.
Overall, Lucky Leap Day is a nostalgic, charming, effortless read by Walker that made me smile, laugh, and dreamily swoon.
