Introducing The Continental Breakfast Club

If you are looking for a light summer read that will keep you smiling you might enjoy over easy.  Book one in the Continental Breakfast Club series has an unusual premise for its series name.

Three girlfriends want to meet guys. When you’ve tried singles groups, church groups, the other usual choices,  where do you look next?  The story is a little romance, a little mystery, a lot comedy. Light, upbeat, without violence,  it is heavy on drama–of sorts. The trouble a dog groomer can get into is hilarious and bizarre!

The Continental Breakfast Club is definitely a new way to meet the potential love of your life.  As a series, you can see the fun you could have with it.  First the three friends, then new characters, who despite their chuckles at the idea, may realize it isn’t a bad idea. It may start a whole new real-life trend besides.

It was an enjoyable story that could easily be read in one sitting.  I have to admit I am curious to see what happens in the next book, entitled “Fresh Brewed.”

The author is currently on a virtual book tour for her series hosted by iRead Book Tours from August 1st through September 9th.  Both books are included in the tour, so be sure you take a look at the schedule below.  You will find more reviews of both books, interviews with Ms. Ford, and articles she has written.
Besides this new series, she is author of both historical and contemporary romances, with a number published.  We will look forward to reading more.

Over Easy by Pamela Ford

Book Description for Over Easy:

Allie Parker’s had enough. Just because she’s a dog groomer, her overachieving family of doctors and lawyers treats her like a child. She’s convinced that a successful husband is all she needs to change their attitudes. So when she and her friends come up with a brilliant new way to meet eligible men, Allie squeezes into her sister’s stylish clothes and sneaks into continental breakfast at an upscale hotel to find herself the perfect guy.

Before Allie has taken her last bite of syrup-laden waffle, she’s met the man of her dreams. But what she doesn’t know is that he’s a jewel thief who mistakenly thinks she’s his contact—and so does everyone else who’s after his stash of diamonds.

Suddenly Allie’s world is crazily upended. And as she scrambles to prove her innocence and get back to her old life, she discovers happily ever after sneaks up when you least expect it.

Fresh Brewed by Pamela Ford

Book Description for Fresh Brewed:

Breanna Mitchell is on her way to a relaxing vacation at the ocean. Maybe she’ll even have a beachside fling to help her get over a recent breakup.

But when a tropical storm makes her destination hotel uninhabitable, a chance encounter at continental breakfast delivers a fabulous option—with a catch. She and her friends can stay at a privately-owned, three-story oceanfront home—if she pretends to be the girlfriend of the owner’s heartbreaker grandson, Ethan. Since he won’t even be there, how hard could it be?

Everything is going swimmingly until Bree drinks too much wine and regales the family with romantic tales about her relationship with Ethan. His adorable brother Adam gets suspicious. His marriage-minded grandma gets engagement fever. The beautiful woman next door gets teary-eyed.

And then, Ethan unexpectedly arrives. Suddenly Bree is about to get everything she’s ever wished for—but is it what she really wants?
