Blog Tour Review - The Right Design by Isabella Louise Anderson

BLURB
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 cad.

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 REVIEW
Lets start out by looking at that cover!  I LOVE it!  The colors are gorgeous and it makes you feel so relaxed and at ease.
I want Carrie's life!  OK, maybe not the cheating now ex-boyfriend loser, but the rest of it I love!  Her sister Sara and her husband Sean are amazing and are there whenever she needs them, she has an amazing career (that I have always admired) and she is a strong woman that won't take any s--- from a man!  So many times in movies and TV we see men cheat on their partner and the women typically (not always) take it, think it was their fault and will do anything to make things better so he will stay and want her back.  
THAT IS CRAZY!  If he can cheat on you once in a "moment of weakness" then he will cheat on you again at the next bump in the road.
What I love is about Carrie is she took the bull by the horns and as soon as she caught him (with her own eyes), she was out the door looking for a place to stay.  Instead of feeling sad and lonely and falling into his trap of "I'm so sorry", she quit her job and moved to Palm Beach, Fl.  Bye bye Texas, hello sunshine state!
She was able to find this adorable house, and she had a job interview lined up and she was ready to breathe and move on.  Nothing like a trip to the neighborhood bar to help a girl relax, or does she?
Of course she got the job, and she was given her first assignment with Brad Larson and let me tell you from the get go drama ensues!  I will not tell you all the little secrets and fun times ahead, come on, I want you to BUY THE BOOK!
Little by little flirtation after flirtation, will Brad (the ultimate play boy) fall in LOVE with Carrie?  Will she just be another conquest for him?  Only time will tell, along with some amazing drinks and dinners that will have you wanting to move south as quickly as possible!
Sit back, sip on a cocktail and enjoy this tale of heartbreak and love. 

DRINK SELECTION
Even though wine is my typical theme, I decided to go with a fruity cocktail to go along with the beach and country club vibe,  my fave, a Strawberry Daiquiri!  Yum, just talking about it makes me want one right now!  (Probably not the greatest idea for a Thursday morning before I head off to volunteer at school HAHA).  One could dream though...it's 5 o'clock somewhere, right Jimmy?
RATING 
I really enjoyed this tale of heartbreak and sadness that turned to her own personal paradise that she created for herself, go Carrie!  And for that I will give her story 5 wine glasses!  I recommend to all, you will enjoy it from beginning to end!
