    LOVED IT!

    This book has kept me hooked. The narrative is captivating and easy going and it was nice to not be 100% sure who the "hero" is. The joy to have my suspicions confirmed was too much!

    A pleasant story set mostly around a gin bar

    A pleasant, easy reading story set mostly around a gin bar in a hotel. Liv has recently lost her PR job, having expected a promotion but instead been shown the door due to a management reshuffle. She has trouble finding a new job but ends up accepting a job from an old boss she bumps into by accident, who now runs a 5-star hotel and is looking for additional staff to work behind the bar in his new gin bar. I did find Liv a bit immature at times, she was supposedly a high-powered career driven sort of person, but had no idea about money or how much she did/didn't have in her account and seemed to just spend money without thinking about it, until she lost her job and had a bit of a shock. Her friend, Dylan, who is always around, was a bit more grounded than her, but they'd both come from quite a hard upbringing in the same estate. I enjoyed the second half more than the first, and once Liv started an online blog (with lovely gin recipes!) and started to change the direction of where she thought she wanted to be in life the story got more interesting. The hotel/bar characters were great - I felt very sorry for Josh, who Liv didn't treat very well, and really loved Spanish Reyes, who worked in the bar with Liv, she was a warm and very funny character. Most of the characters were interesting but I just couldn't really warm to Liv, which was unfortunate as she was the main character! It did finish a little bit too abruptly for me, but there could definitely be a sequel in the life of Liv to see what she gets up to next. A pleasant, easy read.

    Gin, Edinburgh and romance - a winning cocktail

    Three and a half stars. Liv has a high-flying job in PR and marketing until she is made redundant following a merger at her firm. It turns out that the job market has got a lot tougher in Edinburgh since she got her dream job and desperate to save her home she gets a job at a swanky hotel in the gin bar. A keen observer of others Liv finds the customers an endless source of entertainment and uses her powers to 'read' their behaviour. When her BFF from the estate suggests she tries to monetise her observations in a blog Liv begins to intersperse her observations on her customers with recipes for delicious gin cocktails. I devoured this feel-good novel with cocktails on a business trip to Stockholm, apart from an insane desire for a delicious gin cocktail I found this a great escapist romance. I thought the romance was a bit obvious but I liked Liv trying to decide between the seriously hot toy-boy and her online commentator - style over substance. Overall, if you like a good cocktail and a funny romance then I think you'll love this - at the very least you'll get some recipes for lush gin cocktails! I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Disappointing

    With such a catchy title, I was looking forward to reading this book however, it saddens me to say I found it rather mundane. The twist at the end was predictable from the off and a pity the grammar and spelling had not been addressed prior to publishing. A very easy read though and may well suit those looking for something light hearted.
