Review: One Day Like This

One Day Like This by Laura Briggs

My rating: 4 Stars

Tessa has a job that she hates. She has a dream, a one-stop shop for wedding needs. She has a portfolio, but to get things going, she's going to need a lot more than that. For starters, she cannot afford to go into a new business venture on her own, so she needs partners. She has her friend Natalie in mind. Natalie would make the perfect wedding dress designer. Next, she is hoping to rope in wedding planner Stefan. He is not the ideal partner, but is successful in his own right, and would bring in good, solid business to the agency. Lastly, she wants Ama to join as the cake designer. Looking good so far.

They now need a solid business plan and a great location. Tessa has found just that, a fixer-upper that they can just barely afford. They must higher a handyman, at the very least, to get things going in the right direction in short order. Now, once they come up with a name, they will be on their way.

Contractor Blake Ellingham is more then happy to work for the new agency. After all, the building is truly special in the historic old town where it is located. Tessa is utterly breathless around Blake. The sparks between them are quite lively. She really needs Blake's help, especially since the house needs more than a few renovations, including electrical work that was unexpected. When Stefan suddenly quits, Blake is brought even deeper into the agency, much against his better judgment.

The characters were warm, likable and engaging. I definitely enjoyed the natural humor that flowed through the pages. Also, the relationship between Tessa and Blake was just so sweet. The story flowed quite well and the the conclusion was enjoyable. One Day Like this was a refreshing morning read. I look forward to reading more of Laura Briggs in the future, especially since Tessa and friends will be back.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
