The Right Design
Isabelle Louise Anderson

 ~My Review~
 3.5 stars
The Right Design is Isabella Louise Anderson's debute novel and she has picked a great topic. One of rediscovery and growth, as well as a story about a second chance at love. Which I love to read how women go through fire and come out better then they went in-it's kindof an amazing reminder that we can survive just about anything with faith in ourselves.

Carrie has the perfect life, she heads to work on her 6th year anniversary of being with her boyfriend thinking the only thing that would make her day better, would be for him to purpose to her during the special dinner plans that night-or even the surprise plans she has for before dinner, so when she boyfriend home much earlier then she the surprise seems to be on her as she catches him busy in the kitchen with a very young and sassy tart.

This is where the life changer comes in, does she simply forget that happened and take him back with her perfect life, or should she make some changes and leave him behind like yesterday's trash?

Carrie chooses to move from Dallas to Palm Springs in a daring choose that changes her whole life-the question is, will the changes make her life better or will she run home with her tail tucked between her legs defeated?

Unfortunately, I felt a disconnect when reading this story. I felt that the story could have been so much more and was sad to realize that was not the case. However, for a debut novel the concept of the story was good. This author has some great potential to write love story's with depth to them and I will continue checking out her work and seeing how she grows with it. 

Do business and pleasure mix?
In the author's debut novel comes a story about picking up the pieces, letting go of the past, and finding love along the way--even if morals are tested!

Interior designer Carrie Newman could not have envisioned a more perfect life for herself. She had a great job doing what she loved, wonderful friends, and a close relationship with her sister and brother-in-law. Add in an amazing man who she’d hoped would soon become her husband, and her life was perfect. Until one devastating decision ruins her relationship and changes the course of her life.
Determined to make a new start, Carrie leaves Texas and heads to Palm Beach to pick up the pieces of her shattered and broken life. The last thing she expects is to find herself attracted to her first client at her new job--Brad Larson, who has proven himself time and time again to be caddish.
But there’s something beneath the surface of Brad’s arrogant exterior that keeps her craving more of him--something almost sweet that Carrie can’t seem to resist.
Is Carrie ready to take another chance on romance? And will this new design of her life prove to be the right one?
