Review - Our Eyes Met Over Cantaloupe by Anee McAneny
Journalist Millie Morris's Mom runs a very special cake shop - The Secret Lives of Cupcakes which one day gets a very special wedding order - Millie's ex boyfriend. The rogue that one morning when cooking her eggs, announced that he was leaving her for someone else which came as a total surprise to her.
When he comes around to her new home to talk to her about whether he's doing the right thing or not she tries to be nice, as that's her nature, even though she thinks she's really not the right person he should be discussing this with, her feelings for him are questioned. When she finds herself covering an important court case, she discovers that the bride and the lady she was dumped for is the leading lawyer on this particular case, which puts her in a very bizarre position.
Anne writes in a lovely way, her writing is extremely humerous and she has created the most delightful characters especially Millie, and her friend Pauline, that you 'get' right from the start. Her style of writing is easy to read, and just generally enjoyable.
Lots of laugh out loud moments from the moment you start reading along with a good storyline and the great characters hook you from the start of the book. With twists and turns and hilarious events along the way to keep you interested, it certainly was a book that I'd recommend to others. It was good fun, and really enjoyable. I've read some great reviews from her other books too, details of which I've added below and I shall really look forward to looking them up and reading them soon.
