Confession: I saw the cover for this book and instantly wanted to know what it was all about! Once I read the synopsis I was so curious to know what the decision was that Carrie made that caused her life to change.
"Carrie Newman's day started out like any other, only there were presents involved."
This book. This is a book that I will probably re-read again soon. It was just so good! The Right Design has everything you would expect, this is the perfect definition of a Chick-lit read. I instantly felt a connection to Carrie, which is something that does not happen often. I felt like I could really relate to her throughout different moments in this book.
One of my favourite things about The Right Design was the amount of description/detailing that Isabella put in, it wasn't overkill but it was the perfect amount to really fill the readers imagination of how things were playing out. While this was chick-lit, The Right Design was also realistic in the sense of the real-life situations that were taking place.
Enter Brad. When we first met Brad I was actually a little hesitant of if he was a great match for Carrie, I also couldn't decide if I actually liked him. As the story progresses he ends up proving to be a character a became quite fond of. While I think the romance started a little fast between Carrie and Brad, they encounter a little set back that really puts their relationship to the test.
I felt so many different emotions while reading this book, which was surprising to me. I just didn't expect to feel such a strong connection to Carrie's character. I kept hoping that Carrie would get a happy ending! Did she get her happily ever after? Well you'll have to read it to find out! :)
The In-Between / The Bad
Overall, The Right Design absolutely blew my expectations out of the water! As a debut novel I strongly believe Isabella Louise Anderson is an author to watch out for. Should you read this? YES! I'll be recommending this to everyone of Goodreads!
