Thank you so much to the author for surprise gifting me Must Love Otters (after I added it to my Amazon wish list)! It was exactly what I needed while I was really sick with a cold/flu, because it had me laughing out loud. This is such a cute story and it allowed me to escape to the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia with these characters.
I have to admit that it took me a while to warm up to the protagonist, Hollie. However, I think that’s because she was so unhappy in the beginning of the book and her unhappiness made her so critical of everything. She picked apart her co-workers and everyone she came across, naming every negative thing about them she could find… and that just rubbed me the wrong way. But as the story developed that trait faded, and I was wrapped up in her journey.
Must Love Otters is about taking chances, seeking out what makes you happy, and finding your own path. The situations Hollie found herself in literally had me laughing out loud (and waking my sleeping husband), and I loved Hollie and Ryan together! If you’re looking for a fun book to escape into for a while, look no further.
