QUICK NOTE...Update: 6/25/19

Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. You'd think we'd be back in our home by now, since the disaster occurred October 2018, but nope. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

RRR presents... FLYING BY THE SEAT OF MY KNICKERS by Eliza Watson - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


Today, we're taking part in a Rachel's Random Resources tour starring a work of Women's Fiction that will have you catching the travel bug.  Don't say I didn't warn you!  Get ready to make your way through places on your bucket list whilst we catch up with Caity Shaw in today's book of choice...


Flying by the Seat of My Knickers
The Travel Mishaps of Caity Shaw, Book 1
by
Eliza Watson

About the book...
Why run from your troubles when you can fly instead?

When Caity Shaw is fired from her first job that doesn’t require an elf uniform, her older sister, Rachel, an event planner, hires her to work a meeting in Dublin. Caity jumps at the opportunity to travel abroad and escape her pathetic life. However, even four thousand miles from home, there’s no avoiding debt collectors, an overbearing mother, and haunting memories of a controlling ex.

While in Dublin, Caity suffers a series of humiliating mishaps, causing her to lose even more faith in herself. Caity struggles to earn Rachel’s respect—and to keep Declan, her hot Irish coworker, at arm’s length. Declan repeatedly saves Caity’s butt and helps boost her self-confidence, making it difficult to keep her distance from the charming womanizer. When Declan helps her research her Irish grandmother, Caity discovers the mysterious past of the courageous woman she barely knew might hold the answers to her future.

Apparently, I've been in a traveling-to-find-yourself-again sort of mood because several of my recent reads have had that in common. This one was a quickie...and while I didn't dislike it, I can't say I fell fully in love. Here's the scoop...

Personally, I think it had SO MANY story lines to explore and frankly not enough pages to conquer them all leaving that is left us with loose ends aplenty...and I'm the sort of gal who likes things all tied up.  Now don't get me wrong, it was humor filled (hello sausage costume!), courage inspiring (tackling a new job is hard as it is, but pin on to that having to live up to family expectations and you've got yourself a mess of stress!), panic inducing (well, things tended to snowball around her unfortunately...not to mention her back history), and swoon inducing (player or not, Declan was a charmer and seemed genuine)...but there was a whole other side of the characters, including our leading lady, that I wish we had a chance to explore.  Perhaps in the installments that followed, those wishes were answered, but at this point in time/reading, I was bitten by the travel bug, yet left wanting more.

Still, it WAS entertaining...and being the start of a series, it does introduce those that seem to be potential key players in said series rather well.  Maybe her next trip abroad will not only have her opening up to her own possibilities, both past and present, but to readers as well.
