This enjoyable book is not part of a series. It is one of Ms Kappes better offerings, full of little twists and surprises right up to the end. Read it for relaxing enjoyment! (I have read this 2 or 3 times and still enjoy the story!)
Hallie joined a running group two years ago to train for a marathon and to get a little closer to Bo. Hallie has spent the last two years running behind Bo.
Bo is handsome and sweet, owns a blues bar and has not shown an interest in Hallie other than as a friend. Enter Piper ex-regional manager for Gucci and currently eyeing Bo and it seems that Bo likes Piper in the way Hallie was hoping he would like her.
Hallie's Aunt Grace and Uncle Jimmy are old and the only family that Hallie has left, but man they sure do get on her nerves, which is why she is glad that she lives five hours away from them and only goes to visit once every six weeks.
Things change when Hallie is suddenly sent back to her hometown to get a new Gucci boutique up and running. Gucci has rented her a nice apartment off of Hyde Park and as Hallie settles in she starts making new friends like Addy the owner of Cafe Beginnings the local coffee shop, and Dee from One Bead At A Time the local lapidary shop.
Hallie quickly finds out that she has a gift for design when she makes her first beaded bracelet at One Bead At A Time. With Dee's encouragement she begins to make bracelets to sell at Dee's store. Suddenly Hallie isn't so lonely.
Hallie makes another new friend out of her neighbor Wilson. She also unexpectedly finds herself the new owner of Henry a pink poodle. Yes, I said pink poodle. I told you Tonya will get a smile, laugh and even a few tears out of you when you read this book. There are some twists and unexpected turns in Carpe Bead 'Em that even I didn't see coming.
Check it out you will not be sorry! (I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
The story was great. I don't know much about the fashion world, but I loved following Hallie through her job. The narration was perfect for me. The story wasn't overwhelmed with too much detail or too much inner dialogue, but held a perfect blend to make the story flow seemlessly.
I loved how Tonya Kappes was able to bring her characters to life. I loved reading about Hallie and her crazy Aunt Grace. It was a very endearing relationship, even if Aunt Grace did drive Hallie crazy just a bit. I struggled at not skipping ahead just to make sure everything works out for Hallie. I was on pins and needles while wishing and hoping she got the happy ending she deserved.
Tonya Kappes is a great writer. I loved the humor, friendship, growing pains, crazy late night calls and the pink boy poodle. I decided I don't stray out of the paranormal romance genre enough. This was a joy to read, even with it's sad moments (in which I did, in fact, need a tissue), and I highly recommend this.

This is that book!
This is a cute, quick read and less about romance as it is about learning things as you go, and realizing not everything is as you thought it...Read more
