Romance author Rosie Dean has cracked it once again with her sparkling, quintessentially British novel, Chloe’s Rescue Mission. Expect a show-stopping theatrical tour as she makes a dramatic entrance onto numerous blogs over the coming days with reviews, guest posts and a fab-u-lous giveaway, dah-ling.
What they say:To save her grandfather’s legacy – The Joshua Steele Theatre – Chloe Steele sells her services to the highest bidder. Enter leisure tycoon, business angel and playboy, Duncan Thorsen. But when the bank calls in the and the council enforces closure, just how much paparazzi exposure and wheeling and dealing can a girl stomach?
Chloe’s Rescue Mission by Rosie Dean, the story of Chloe and how she strived to save her granddad’s theatre, throwing herself at the task she ends up in the green room of a TV studio waiting to go live on TV to make a plea for help! There she meets a man who calms her, of the bat she finds him interesting, something about him, his demeanor catches her eye, but after a rocky past relationship she pushes it aside. After her spot on the TV she has a phone call, a businessman wants to meet and it just so happens that it’s that same businessman from the green room. Duncan Thorsen!
Chloe accepts Duncan’s offer and doors open, but she also has doors opening with the help of other sources, she finds herself in some funny situations but she always finds away. She doesn’t give up, she works hard and won’t give up on the theater. I really enjoyed the journey she takes and he spirit is fiery and unique which I always find satisfying in a leading lady!
Now obviously we have to discuss the love interest that is Duncan, he isn’t just a successful businessman, oh no, he just so happens to be handsome and have a playboy reputation. So when Chloe finds herself drawn to him things creep up, barricades form between them but isn’t that what we like in a good romance? I think it is, seeing a relationship grow and break through the walls people put up all make for good reading.
Another plus for me is the supporting characters, Chloe’s sister and mum were my favorites. They were such fun characters and they play an important role in this book, same goes for Duncan’s family.
So can the quirky woman saving her legacy let go and let herself fall for the playboy that hides behind the public’s perceptions?
This is a fabulous book to introduce spring, those summer months are coming. Beach reads, at the ready lovelies make sure this book is top of your list!
Witty with a crisp edge to it, Chloe’s Rescue Mission is superb!
Excerpt‘Tell me, Duncan,’ Mum began, ‘What made you consider getting involved with our humble theatre. What’s in it for you?’ I lifted in my seat at the tightening of my buttocks. Duncan smiled and nodded. ‘Well, Chloe has some experience which might benefit plans I have for developing one aspect of our business – coaching people in the field of corporate presentations, public speaking, that kind of thing.’ Mum nodded. ‘Yes, she has some experience of that but there are far more seasoned people out there than Chloe you could employ.’ A blend of mortification and disbelief belted through my veins. Was she mad? ‘Although she is very good at what she does,’ Mum continued, barely improving matters. ‘And she’s very personable. People do warm to her. And of course, you’ll be getting a bargain if you do take her on.’ ‘Yes,’ I said, trying not to sound sour, ‘this is our Spring Sale.’ Duncan smiled. ‘There is that but, to be honest, I confess I have a slightly more personal reason for my interest in your project.’ Here we go, I thought. Business Angel. Mum’s eyes twinkled with interest. ‘My father took my mother to see Tahitian Paradise on their first date, and on their honeymoon in London, they went to see Joshua in Blithe Spirit.’ Mum beamed. ‘How wonderful. So you’re emotionally motivated as well as commercially. Interesting.’ ‘Oh, there’s more,’ he said, shaking his head and grinning. ‘Thanks to him, my middle name’s Joshua.’ Mum clapped her hands in delight. ‘Oh, my darling, welcome to the family.’ Beth raised her glass and nodded at me to raise mine. I did, and drained it. Author Bio: Rosie writes romantic fiction with a sense of humour and, sometimes, a sense of the ridiculous. Because we all know life and love aren't exactly how we'd like them to be. When not writing, she loves to cook and to read, she even reads in the car (listening to talking books) and has notched up countless unnecessary miles as a result. Not one to spend hours in the gym or pounding the pavement, she prefers yoga and Pilates, which means she can tone and tighten while watching TV.
