Out of the Blue by Lisa Maliga
Out of the Blue by Lisa Maliga follows Sylvia Gardner, a naive cashier who lives with her mother in Illinois. After she is dumped by her first boyfriend, she falls in love with an English actor who stars in a popular TV show. She spends the next two years researching him and then finally makes the leap and heads to Cotswolds village where she hopes to magically run into him. With little money to her name, she finds room and board in exchange for working at the hotel. Harry, the drunken proprietor causes quite a ruckus and definitely makes things a little more complicated for Sylvia.
I really enjoyed Out of the Blue and found the characters cute and quirky. I thought it was really cute to see Sylvia fall in love with the grand Alexander but a little unlikely … I guess we can all hope, huh? I enjoyed watching her spend her time working in Cotswolds village and I thought Harry was an absolute hoot. Overall, a fun story with a few unexpected twists and turns. My only complaint is that the story can get a little slow at times, but it doesn’t take long to pick back up, so it isn’t anything major.
