Over Easy is book one in The Continental Breakfast Club series. This is the story of three best friends who one day come up with this great idea to find men at a hotel during continental breakfast. I laughed so hard during this book. I absolutely loved Ford’s style of writing, and I just loved Allie. This was such a cute and delightful read. Fast-paced and funny, this is a great summer read that you can enjoy in one sitting. I definitely recommend this light-hearted chick-lit.

I’d like to thank i

A cute, silly,adventure/mystery type of novel with a little romance thrown in. This book was a lot of fun to read. It grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept me interested the whole way through. It was a fast-paced, easy to read novel. I flew through this book.

The characters were very real and believable. I felt like I was spending time with a girlfriend. The writing was very easy to follow. It flowed very easily. The conversations between characters was to the point and not drawn out.

I have to say this read is in a league of its own. So many twists and surprises keep you in stitches the whole time. Its so entertaining and off the wall hilarious. The characters were so down to earth and moving in more ways than one. The scenes were so lifelike and real you could envision them. My attention was captured by the storyling as it played out. Its so engaging and full of action it kept me on my toes. Pam weaves the words together and brings us, her readers, the besy of th

I will admit that I came into this series as a biased reader, having thoroughly enjoyed Pamela Ford's 'Bachelor Next Door' series immensely. What I wasn't prepared for was loving this series just as much. The premise is so hilarious, so sincere, and so believable that I warmed to the story immediately. The main characters introduced are so likeable, so honest and so realistic that I felt as though I were reading about my best friends. The chaos, confusion, hilarity and insanity that occurs as th ...more

The cover was simple, clearly covering (pun unintended) everything the summary hinted at. It drew me in, as it promised something more than the obvious romantic comedy this book was supposed to be. The summary held my interest because I really had prepared myself to sit and enjoy this genre and not look for logic faults or loopholes or expect any adrenaline rush. The book was a short read.


What sort of man would make my parents— I mean, me— happy? “I’ve narrowed it down,”

This book is fun! It is witty, clever and laugh-out-loud hilarious at times. The lovable characters and situations they get themselves into are relatable on so many levels that make this book a thoroughly enjoyable read. Dogs, diamonds, young women looking for love in all the right/wrong places with just enough suspense to keep it intriguing. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the Continental Breakfast Club series--can't wait to see what happens next!

To Allie's family, she's the baby; the one that needs to be reminded about basic things, the only member of the family to be deemed 'unsuccessful'. She has her own business, what's unsuccessful about that? Oh, wait, Allie doesn't have the 'successful' husband that her parents so badly want her to have. A continental breakfast, two ladies and 'the ideal man', what could possibly go wrong?

Over Easy by new to me author Pamela Ford was a hilariously laugh-out-loud adventure. The premise of this story is about three best friends who are trying to make love matches. For instance, they joined a gym to try to meet some guys; however that didn’t work out so well. So Megan, the lawyer comes up with an old idea of sneaking into the continental breakfasts at hotels to meet the loves of their lives. And so The Continental Breakfast Club has begun.

A good looking dog groomer hunting for a potential boyfriend – How hard can that be? Oh it seriously can be quite hard if you pick the wrong guy. That’s exactly what the protagonist, Allie does. Succumbing to the pressure of keeping up with a family of intellectuals, Allie resorts to finding the perfect guy who would fit to her family standards. Along with her friends, Megan and Bree, she sets out to meet men. They initially start off by hitting the gym to find men, but that plan fizzles out. Ev ...more

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

From the blurb, I was expecting a light thriller with lots of racing and chase. What I didn't expect was the laughter. Oh my! Almost every scene had me laughing - giggling under my breath or laughing out loud. In short, it was a hilarious read.

The characters were finely crafted. They would need to be a certain type to fit into this story. Allie came across as a ditzy person. I think she was more of a child than an adult in her actions. I be

Over Easy is a fun, romantic comedy that will take you through some crazy moments and moments of pure joy and throughout it all, Over Easy is one book you just can't put down.

Over Easy is so well written, Pamela writes as though you are an active member in the story. As if you are having a conversation with Allie, your best friend, as she relays the story of her life. It made me laugh, made me worried for her and really helped to connect me with her character.

The plot is one you have never read
When I first started reading this I was concerned I'd dislike it because of the possibility it could be like the Bridget Jones books... But it really wasn't.

Although the initial story line is about finding "love", the story line that takes over is hysterical (if not ridiculous) and I read the book in two long sessions due to needing to know what was going to happen. I laughed throughout and finished the book with a smile on my face.

Allie is a massive drama queen (like me) but has loyal friends

Over Easy is the first book in The Continental Breakfast Club series. It's a fun mystery and a quick read.

Three friends in their twenties are all single and trying to figure out ways to meet men. I like the three women and how well they complement each other. Allie is a dog groomer, Bree is a teacher, and Megan is a lawyer. They come from completely different backgrounds but they are the best of friends. They have tried several ways to mee

A cute, breezy chick lit in the same vein as the Stephanie Plum series. Readers will laugh out loud at the antics of the affable, ditzy, and well intentioned, Allie Parker whose over active imagination can get the better of her sometimes. Allie is sick of being the baby in the family and is determined to bring a man to her parents 45th wedding anniversary. Tired of always being looked down on for being a dog groomer and being single she is determined to turn things around for once and for all.

Such fun. This was a mad dash from beginning to end.

Allie comes from a family of over achievers. She’s just a lowly dog groomer. Feeling pressured by her family, Allie, along with her two best friends, come up with a plan to meet the man of her dreams. Surely that will impress her family.

They crash the continental breakfast at a fancy hotel and, sure enough, Allie finds a handsome, successful man who shows an interest in her. Sadly, she doesn’t know he’s a jewel thief and has mistaken her for hi

We have heard this before- a big family event is coming and to show up without a date would make one look like a loser, or in this case, like the baby of the family who would never amount to anything of value. Fortunately for Allie, she has two intelligent, single female friends also eager to find male companionship willing to try crazy schemes with her.

Over Easy is the first in a series of novels about these three friends and how their choices lead to adventures no one sees coming. After they

What a wonderful read! I really enjoy the story and how the author brought the characters to life. The characters were likable and relatable. I can relate to the struggle Allie had with her family. Family expectations of you can become pretty overwhelming overtime. Don't get me wrong I love my family but sometimes I feel restricted. They support me and love me but I know they wish I do something else. I'm sure that's how Allie had felt with her family. And I liked her enthusiasm in trying to pro ...more

I've heard of women trying various ways of finding husbands, and I've tried a few of those ideas myself (!), but this one took the cake. A group of friends decide that the best way to meet prospective a prospective husband is to sneak into high-end hotels and eat at the Continental Breakfast buffets! That way, they figured out they would meet men who were smart and obviously doing well enough to live in these hotels.

Over Easy is all about Allie, the 'black sheep' of a highly accomplished family,

First of all, the only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's written in first person. That's just something that makes it hard for me to keep things straight in a book. With that said, I thought this book was hilarious! I really enjoyed the commentary in Allie's head. She goes off on these wild tangents and it was so much fun to read. I found myself wishing right away that I had signed up to read both books for the tour . . . time, however, didn't cooperate. I enjoyed the ...more

It was an absolute pleasure to read Over Easy by Pamela Ford. This is a book that captured my attention and held it from cover to cover. It had plenty of action including manhunting, sleuthing, and lots of laughter!

Ms. Ford has created a cast of characters that is easy to relate to, then you mix in a trio of furry friends and the story is bound to get a little wild!

Over Easy was such a delightful read! Calamities and misadventures follow Allie and her friends wherever they go throughout this laugh out loud book. Part mystery, part chic lit, part suspense, part romance, The Continental Breakfast Club is sure to please anyone who love fun, quirky characters! Over Easy is also a fun read for dog-lovers. Allie is a dog-groomer, and her dogs play a key role in the story.

When best friends concoct a scheme to find rich men, the plot thickens! Fresh, zany and frankly hilarious, Pamela Ford makes the 3 best friends who create "The Continental Breakfast Club" come alive. After reading the adventures of Allie, Bree and Megan, you will honestly believe in love again. Centered on Allie Parker, almost 30 and looked down upon in her family of overachievers, the novel progresses with quite a few twists and turns, which I will not disclose here.

This is the first book in a series that I was lucky enough to get to read. This was such a fun book to read. It was a light book that reads very quickly. Another thing I like about this book is that the way the author writes and makes you feel as if you are a part of the story. What a funny plan to go to a continental breakfast to find yourself a boyfriend. I can just imagine what was going through Allie's mind or maybe not going through her mind.

Her friends come up with the idea of meeting men at hotels at Continental breakfasts.

Pamela Ford!!! Top notch author. Who couldn't love a story with dogs and diamonds. Fast pace and hilarious, Over Easy is the first book in a series called the Continental Breakfast Club. The story is about a dog groomer who wants to meet a well connected guy by sneaking into a continental breakfast. Does she meet the guy? Yep, and so much more...a jewel heist, mistaken identities and possibly murder wait for you in this book. Read it! You won't be disappointed. Can't wait for book two!!!

A fun, zany read with a series of miscommunications and misunderstandings a mile long. Allie, and her friends set out to meet single men at a local hotel continental breakfast. What she doesn't expect is to get swept up with a case of stolen jewelry.

This is a fun book. Allie is a little naive at times, but I could actually see this as a Hallmark or Lifetime movie... And I mean that as a compliment. Allie and her friends are in for a wild ride.

Neve have I ever dove into a book and wanted to skip to the end to find out what happens!!!! At First Miss Alli Parker made me d i z z y, but before I knew it she had me on a whirlwind adventure! I just couldn’t read fast enough. This is certainly a book you need to read without real life interferences. LMAO I wanted to hide in the closet for a majority of the afternoon. Yes I loved this book, and yes I totally recommend!

Pamela Ford is the award-winning author of contemporary and historical romance. She grew up watching old movies, blissfully sighing over the romance; and reading sci-fi and adventure novels, vicariously living the action. The combination probably explains why the books she writes are romantic, happily-ever-afters with plenty of plot.
