Sapphire Falls: Going Zero to Sixty (Kindle Worlds Novella) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

A fun read that will have you laughing out loud. I highly recommend this book!
The first 'meeting' of the boss and new employee is not exactly as either one would have wanted it. They ‘meet’ when he roars past her at high speed on the highway. They meet again at the grocery store when Harley, who is always in a hurry, shoves her aside to get to the Gatorade. Then he crowds in front of her and an older lady with her arm in a sling who is in front of her in the checkout line. This cements her opinion of him as a colossal jerk! They have never met face to face, so she doesn’t realize that he is her new boss. When they finally meet, he is stunned by the beautiful mechanic that he hired sight unseen. They settle into a boss/employee relationship that eventually leads to more.
I loved this book! The characters and plot are are well-developed and believable. There are lots of laugh-out-loud situations which are a trademark of Lizbeth Selvig.
I highly recommend this book. This author is one of my favorites. I can't wait to see what happens in the next Sapphire Falls book.
All the characters are vivid, colorful, realistic and
well defined. You will feel the main characters
interactions as they move from dislike, distrust at
the beginning to caring and trusting each other
ending by falling in love.
The story covers the truths about life with family
trials, love, joy and danger, not so honest investors,
thrills, chills, humor, romance and surprises.
Description is deftly woven into the story by taking
the reader on the ferris wheel, to a baseball game,
going through the haunted house, watching fireworks
and driving race track with the characters.
Elle Mitchell is starting a new life away from her family.
She has taken a job in Sapphire Falls which is a
friendly and magical place. It is a place where strangers
are accepted into part of the community family.
Elle works in a man's world as an auto repair mechanic.
Her job is in a car repair shop run by Harley Holt.
Will Elle fit in with the men in the repair shop? Will
Elle's life find independence and fulfillment?
Be sure to read!!!!
I volunteered to read Going Zero to Sixty. Thanks to
the author for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.
The romance in Going Zero to Sixty is so, so good. A bit steamier than Selvig’s latest books, but that’s a-ok by me! Harley and Elle try their darndest to stay away from one another due to their working relationship, but resistance proved futile. The result is a lot of sexual tension and close proximity that kept me on edge until these two were able to wrap their mind around a commitment.
As with most other Selvig books, the pièce de résistance in Going Zero to Sixty is female friendship, notably multi-generational female friendship. In this book, Elle befriends Harley’s mother, Jacqueline, early on and their scenes together are incredibly sweet and poignant. Jacqueline, or Jack as she’s known to most, roots for Elle and Harley from the very beginning and even chaperones their first unofficial date at a town baseball game. The thought of the three of them sitting in the bleachers together rooting for Harley’s brother warms my heart. (And yes, this book is just as charming as it sounds.)
If you are looking for a quick read that’ll give you all the feelings, Going Zero to Sixty is for you. I finished the story feeling empowered as a woman and with a renewed sense of determination to connect with old friends. 4 stars for Going Zero to Sixty by Lizbeth Selvig!
