The Right Design

183 pages
Published March 8th 2014 by Chick Lit Goddess

Interior designer Carrie Newman could not have envisioned a more perfect life for herself. She had a great job doing what she loved, wonderful friends, and a close relationship with her sister and brother-in-law. Add in an amazing man who she’d hoped would soon become her husband, and her life was perfect. Until one devastating decision ruins her relationship and changes the course of her life.

Determined to make a new start, Carrie leaves Texas and heads to Palm Beach to pick up the pieces of her shattered and broken life. The last thing she expects is to find herself attracted to her first client at her new job--Brad Larson, who has proven himself time and time again to be caddish.

But there’s something beneath the surface of Brad’s arrogant exterior that keeps her craving more of him--something almost sweet that Carrie can’t seem to resist.

Is Carrie ready to take another chance on romance? And will this new design of her life prove to be the right one?

My thoughts about The Right Design ~~

What a sweet story! The Right Design is a quick, fun read with a great main character named Carrie. She breaks it off with her boyfriend of six years and even after he begs for forgiveness and a second chance, she wants nothing to do with him She even moves to a new town in a different state in order to get over him. That takes a lot of guts to turn your life upside down and make a change like that. More power to her!
'You know when you're so much in love with someone and can't imagine your life without that one person, even when you're going throught tough times? There is no one I'll ever love more.'
So, Carrie meets Brad at the bar where her friend, Oliver is serving up drinks. Let me tell you, Brad did not make a good first impression on Carrie that evening. How ironic it is when she finds out that Brad is her very first client. Can she get past that horrible first encounter when what she really wants is to give in to that chemistry thing they have going on? It was fun watching their relationship struggle through the akwardness and move on to a more deeper one.

I have to admit though, I was really hoping for a few more sparks to fly between Carrie and Oliver. That would have made for an interesting twist to the story - two hot guys after one beautiful gal. Oh well, things turn out okay in the end anyway.

I really loved the relationship between Carrie and her sister, Sara. They were so totally there for each other when they needed to be. You could tell they were really close. And Sean, Sara's husband, sounded like he was a fabulous guy too. So there were a lot of secondary characters who all made the story that much more enjoyable.

The Right Design is Isabella's first novel and I enjoyed it very much. It will be exciting to see what she has planned next.
