This one is difficult to write as I think Georgia Beers is a fine writer and has written novels that I absolutely adored. Right Here, Right Now is not my favorite of hers. I wanted so much more from this one.
My main issue with this book is the repetitive nature. The main character, Lacey Chamberlain, is an accountant and financial advisor. When the book begins Lacey’s in an accountant’s busiest time, tax season. So many times, I mean so many, the reader has subjected the length of Lacey’s day, how busy she is, random uninteresting client details. I felt like I was Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. It felt clunky and a loop I desperately wanted to jump out of. Break the cycle, stop telling me boring mundane details. S T O P!
What’s good about this book is the relationship Lacey develops with her office neighbor, marketing guru Alicia Wright. Alicia is a fantastic character and when her an Lacey are together, it’s hot, sexy and absolutely adorable. The only thing is you have to weed through so much to get to those scenes. It is never good when you start skimming, and oh how I forced myself to refrain from skimming.
Not bad but just not a great one either. I would still read any book Georgia Beers writes.
