Caching In

                                                     


SUMMARY

Can a compass lead you to love?

Broken-hearted Ally Couper has had enough with her ridiculous life. Her job at the bank is going nowhere, and her love life might as well be non-existent.

Determined to try something new, Ally becomes absorbed in the world of geocaching. The high-tech driven scavenger hunt introduces her to Seth, and she realizes the game isn’t the only thrilling part.

Ally’s bad luck may finally be changing, until the past threatens to halt her future with Seth. Can they find happiness together, or is love the one cache Ally can’t find?


MY REVIEW  

When I began reading Caching In I had no idea what to expect and where this story would take me.  On top of the fact that I truly had NO IDEA what geocaching was.  

Ally Couper has not had an easy life the past year - her father passing, a fiance who cheated on her multiple times and a dead end job that she can't seem to leave.  What is a girl to do?

Then one day while working out she sees a man and a woman surveying property and then locating what looked to be a box.

She asks them what they are doing and they explained to her that they were geocaching, and this is where her life began to change...

After deciding to take on this new hobby Ally throws herself in full force and goes on her first cach.  She was unsuccessful, not letting it get to her she moves on to another...Little did she know she would run into Seth and that is where their story begins...

A sexy man, unmarried, is showing interest in her?  OMG!  What does she do now?  Well if you are Ally you ask him out right there on the spot to go geocaching with her!

From that point on this story takes many twists and turns - her relationship with Seth, her best friend Chels troubled relationship, her ex-fiance showing back up, her mother's new found love, the list is just endless!

The writing in this story is seamless, you move smoothly from one story line to the next and you are never lost in translation.  Through the course of the book - I have connected with Ally, I have wanted to shake some sense into Chels, I wanted to tell Seth he's making the biggest mistake of his life just to name a few.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is truly looking for a romance that is deep in emotion and has you connecting to the characters on a personal basis.  Wanting to know the next question - Where are Ally and Seth now?  How is Chels in her new career and new role?  So many questions, so little time!

WINE SELECTION

I would pair this piece with a Cabernet Sauvignon which has very earthy undertones.  With a combination of cherry and berry aromas and earthy layers it is perfect for this geocaching romance.  

                                                                        
I would rate this geocaching love story - 5 glasses of wine ( I never wanted the story to end or the wine for that matter!)
