I usually bypass short stories when I see them on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I’ve read a few, and sometimes, authors just can’t delivery.
So not the case with Whitney and A Very Important Guest. I’m giving it 5Stars While I want more from these characters, I was left with a solid feeling that the story is complete whether Whitney picks it up again or not.
Set is picturesque and beautiful Hawaii, Abby is a maid at a high end resort. When she’s caught still cleaning a suite by young congressman. And how does Abby know this? Because she watches CSPAN <— This made me laugh as I’ve often, late at night when I can’t sleep, stop on CSPAN so I can remember just how crazy American politics are.
William Lloyd, a Democrat from Ohio, is in Hawaii for a conference. Can you imagine his surprise when he walks into his hotel suite and finds the maid bent over talking to “something” under the bed. Although this story is told from Abby’s point of view, for one brief moment I wanted to know exactly what William was thinking.
William is standoffish and down right rude, according to Abby. But it doesn’t take him long to fix his blundering attitude. He takes every opportunity he can to hang out with Abby and doesn’t hide his feelings.
A Very Important Guest is extremely refreshing, light and not weighed down by drama or political non-sense. A very much love at first sight novella that will keep you wondering if Whitney will carry on these characters.
You’ll be happy and in love by the time you’re done with A Very Important Guest.
