An (Un)Romantic Comedy

An (Un)Romantic Comedy is my second read from Phoebe MacLeod.

Book Description

The course of true love never did run smooth, but with Phoebe MacLeod it always gets a chance. Perfect for fans of Jo Watson, Mhairi McFarlane and Portia MacIntosh.

The black sheep is coming home for her sister’s wedding.

One week with the whole family in one house.

What could possibly go wrong?

Poppy is a therapist. You’d think her parents would be proud. But Poppy is the type of therapist that makes her mother cringe – she helps people with their, ahem, bedroom problems…

Normally Poppy deals with her difficult family – two parents, one brother, a couple sisters and an assortment of nieces and nephews – by keeping a county or two between her and them. But with her little sister about to get married there’s no avoiding the week-long family holiday in Cornwall.

The trip was always going to be a catastrophe, but Poppy never imagined how much her family needed her professional skills… Nor did she expect to meet a sexy surfer on what was supposed to be the most unromantic holiday ever.

Can a nightmare holiday lead to the love of a lifetime?

My Review of An (Un)Romantic Comedy

A single woman going for a holiday with her family prior to a family wedding can lead to a lot of awkward situations. With this being Poppy’s younger sister getting married, there’s a lot of pressure on her about her marital status. This is made worse by Poppy’s occupation – a sex therapist – always an embarrasment especially for her mother.

As the holiday continues, Poppy meets up a surfer and sparks fly. But can this connection go any further?

Also can Poppy and her family get closer to each other during this holiday?

Loved this humourous story with underlying layers dealing with family dynamics, the usefulness of the kind of therapy that Poppy practices and of course, a nice romance.
