One Way or Another by Colleen Coleman @CollColemanAuth #BlogBlitz @bookouture #Review

Thank you for stopping by I'm delighted to be sharing my review of One Way or Another by Colleen Coleman as part of the blog blitz today. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...

Twenty-nine-year-old Katie Kelly is at an all-time low. The love of her life, gorgeous Ben Cole, took a job abroad and broke her heart, the restaurant she’d put her all into went bust, and now she works in a retirement home, cooking beige mush for the residents.

Not exactly the life Katie had dreamed of…

So when the opportunity comes up to work for one of the best chefs in the country – Katie’s idol – she is determined to get the job, no matter what. But then she discovers who she’s competing against: Ben.

As the competition heats up, Katie and Ben spend more and more time together, and it’s clear the old spark is still there… But only one person can win their perfect job, and Katie is going to make sure it’s her. She knows she can’t let Ben back in – or can she find a way to have it all?

A hilarious, heart-warming story about romance, good food, and following your dreams, for fans of Lindsey Kelk, Marian Keyes and Cate Woods.

This is the first book that I have read by Colleen Coleman and it's safe to say that I have clearly been missing out. I loved the hopeful and determined Katie, she was such a likeable character who I was rooting for all the way through. Even the minor characters played an important part especially Martha. There is a lovely dose of emotion but also fun moments as Katie tries to navigate her way through trying to follow her dream but also keep her friendships and family life intact.

If you love food then this is the story for you I really enjoyed all the descriptions of how everything was created and you can clearly see Katie's passion shine through. I loved the journey that Katie went on, there was a lovely combination of themes within the story such as love, family and friendship that just made reading this book such a wonderful experience.

One Way or Another is perfect for showing us that it is never too late to follow our dreams as you never know what will happen or where the journey will take you. A truly uplifting and hopeful story!

Five stars from me!

With thanks to Kim at Bookouture for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.

Colleen was born in Canada and raised in Ireland. She is the winner of the much-coveted Novelicious Undiscovered People’s Choice Award launched to find the next ‘chick-lit star’. 

She spent years teaching English and Philosophy before finally taking a deep breath, scrunching both eyes shut, putting her pen to paper and vowing not to lift it again until she wrote the words 'the end'. As a result, her first novel, Don't Stop Me Now was born. 

Colleen lives between London, Ireland and Cyprus with her very patient husband and very,very chatty twin daughters.
