There’s no problem Becky Watson can’t fix. Except her own love life…
Struggling single mother Becky Watson longs to revive her career as a life-fixer, working miracles to solve her clients’ problems, no matter how big or small. Since the birth of her two-year-old son she has been stuck preventing wedding fiascos for the richest and rudest residents of the Comptons, a charming, leafy area of southern England known for its artistic heritage.
So when semi-reclusive local artist Charlie Handren reluctantly hires Becky to fix his six-year creative slump, she’s delighted to set him up with a come-back exhibition and Rachel Stone, the woman of his dreams.
Though they get off to a rocky start, Becky and Charlie soon become close. But as the beautiful Rachel becomes Charlie’s muse, Becky is forced to wonder: will giving Charlie everything he wants mean giving up her own happily ever after?
A heart-warming, uplifting romance served with a generous slice of cake.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
‘Art and Soul’ is an amusing, poignant romance with a refreshingly original plot. Professionally Becky is a successful fixer of people’s lives. Unfortunately, her love life needs repair. Charlie is a particularly challenging client, who reluctantly engages her, to save his career as an artist.
Arty details, add authenticity to the story and Becky and Charlie’s relationship is a lovely mix of conflict, humour and gentle romance.
