Every workplace has that one person you don’t want to mess with.

At James & Peterson Investigations, that would be Cameron Grant: sullen, grouchy, intimidating, oh yeah, and sexy as hell. He can make your soul wither with a single disapproving glare. And he never, ever socialises with his co-workers.

This is why Maisie Wilkins, happy-go-lucky ray of sunshine, can’t fathom why Cameron finally decided to show up at their annual office Christmas party. Every year he received an invite, and every year he failed to attend. But not this year.

Curious as to why he’s there, Maisie can’t resist sitting next to Cameron. Before she knows it, she’s had one too many drinks and is drunkenly hailing a cab back to his place. Office party flings are not something she normally does, but despite his intimidating character, Cameron has a charm she can’t resist. Or maybe it was just those five gin and tonics blurring her judgement.

Whatever the reason, Maisie now has to navigate the awkward, tension filled waters of sharing an office with someone she’s slept with.

This story features Cameron Grant, Ellen's cranky and curmudgeonly brother from Fauxmance.

“Have you been thinking about me, too?”


This was such a fast, cute and floofy read. I usually always enjoy Cosway's work and Happy-Go-Lucky was no exception. It was something I cuddled up to with my coffee in the mornings and found myself smiling more often than not.


Banter and Blunders

Whilst I enjoyed HGL, it does come with certain cliche and cringey moments. We have our main character Maisie who I thought would grate on my nerves after a while, but I actually ended up rooting for her during my reading process. Cameron was someone I ended up liking as Maisie got to know him more and I think both this aspects together completely sold the character development for me! HGL is definitely a light read with very tongue-in-cheek humor, and if you like a good-hearted office romance, you should definitely give this a shot!

The banter between Cameron and Maisie was at times cartoony but other times very adorable. My main issue with this story was that the 'mystery' didn't hook me as much as the romance did. I wish we got more of a gripping story arc because the potential was definitely there. As romance goes, this is completely a safe and comforting read -it's definitely more on the cute than sensual/sexy side... totally flew by!

"But then Cameron was kissing me again, and I couldn’t think straight. His hands were all over me, and I felt his hunger in the way he groaned when he massaged my breast over the top of my clothes. I sensed his desperation, like his lonely heart yearned for mine even if he’d never admit it."

*****FIVE STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

Emotions I’d never felt before swelled inside me: longing, desire, respect, love. Yes, I couldn’t lie to myself any longer. I was falling for this man, drowning in the sea of him and there was no swimming back to the surface.

”HAPPY GO LUCKY” is a light-hearted office romance between a quirky super sweet woman and her gorgeous but grumpy and standoffish co-worker. This was a fun read that had it all—an endearing Heroine, swoon-worthy Hero, some deliciously steamy moments, and a mystery that provided some entertaining intrigue and unexpected plot twists. This is why I’m so in love with L.H. Cosway’s writing!!

Maisie Wilkins works as a researcher at a private investigation firm. She loves her job and her solitary life. She always has a cheerful disposition and goes out of her way to please others because she can't stand the thought of anyone disliking her. On the night of her office Christmas party, she decides to make an effort to interact with Cameron Grant, her gorgeous but severely anti-social co-worker. She never expected to end up in his bed later that night. Fearing the possibility of becoming fodder for office gossip, Maisie asks Cameron to agree to forget they ever slept together. For some reason, she has it in her head that people think of her as a joke and that there’s no way someone like Cameron could ever have feelings for her. She couldn’t be more wrong.

When Maisie is offered a promotion at work to become a private investigator, she asks Cameron to be her mentor. The ability to keep things platonic during Maisie’s training proves to be almost impossible for the both of them. Throw in the difficulties of keeping their romance a secret in the office along with being immersed in a complex and dangerous case, this story was well and thoroughly entertaining.

I loved how while Maisie and Cameron might have seemed to be polar opposites, their differences made them fit like two perfect puzzle pieces. They helped each other to step outside of their comfort zones. I know that readers are going to fall in love with these characters.

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 3
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

Favorite Quotes:

I found it weird to think of him having parents, siblings. I was used to imagining him as some sort of perfect-looking vampire who slept in a coffin and consumed only blood. Then again, it was hard to explain the whole daylight thing.

Any mention of a man and she got a very specific look in her eye, like a mother in a period drama with a spinster daughter she was eager to marry off.

“You know, you might be right. I probably should stop bringing donuts to the office. They say sugar can have an adverse effect on testosterone levels. Oh,” I smacked my hand to mouth like I’d just come to some dramatic realisation. “That might be why you’re all standing around here gossiping and bitching about me like a bunch of old ladies.”

I was falling for this man, drowning in the sea of him and there was no swimming back to the surface… With Cameron, it was like there were more feelings inside of me than my body was capable of holding.

And when he asked me what my favourite spice was, I said Sporty. I think that’s where the date started to go downhill…

He smiled at me, the sort of rare smile that made you believe you were hearing angels sing.

My Review:

This was a fun and wryly amusing read featuring an office romance where opposites attract and create a beautiful result where the whole is greater than the parts. Cameron was exacting in his work while tetchy and uncaring of how other people regarded him, while Maisie was an optimist who bent over backward in her constant efforts and concern in pleasing others. I adored their storylines, blossoming romance, and quirky office dynamics.

Ms. Cosway’s engaging writing was entertaining, well balanced, insightfully observant, and loaded with clever wit and stealthy levity as well as a few delectable scenes of sizzling sensuality. She also had me Googling ASMR, something I’d never taken note of before, which led to falling into a YouTube wormhole while experimenting with various video mavens until I shook myself loose. Funny how that happens…

L.H. Cosway never disappoints! I've been in a bit of a book funk lately but Happy-Go-Lucky easily pulled me out of it. Maisie is a charming, endearing heroine, while Cameron is a somewhat broody, grumpy but likeable hero. No one writes chemistry quite like L.H. Cosway, and these two have it in spades. Humour, sexy romance, and the mystery subplot kept me hooked from start to finish! LOVED IT.

This was such a fun, sweet, smexy read that I could not put it down!

Maisie is that perky person in the office that always brings doughnuts, is always smiling, and never seems to have a problem in the world. But inside, she’s insecure and in need of acceptance from those around her. When she sees her grumpy co-worker, Cameron, at the annual Christmas party alone and well, looking grumpy, she sucks up the courage to try to make him feel a part of the party. Too many gin and tonics later and suddenly Mr. Grumpy is anything but and Maisie is searching for her lost bra during her morning after escape.


I absolutely loved Maisie. She was definitely the type of person that brings sunshine into the room but she wore her feelings on her sleeve. Her character was so well written I could totally identify with her as I saw several of my own fears and insecurities within her. The fact that she grew in confidence to overcome some of her “easy pushover” tendencies and learned to stand up for herself was inspirational. Maisie felt real to me as did her actions and reactions towards Cameron. Nothing about her felt contrived or over the top. She was a heroine that had faults and while she might dwell on them at times, she was smart enough and strong enough to recognize them and try to change.

While we never get Cameron’s point of view, the author was able to convey through his own minimal awkwardness, frustrations or loss of words, what he was feeling at times. I would’ve loved to have known exactly what he was thinking because I do believe he often wanted to shout “Mine!” to the world but was unable to do so, constrained as he was by a promise he made to Maisie. Even as the heroine was evolving into a stronger, better her, Cameron too was changing. He was learning to let go of the iron grip he had on life and allow himself to enjoy life, smile, and open his heart up. For a hero who started out as a real jerk, he quickly stole my heart.


Everything about this book was fun, sweet and steamy. As this couple work together to solve a mystery, they struggle with keeping things between them professional. It was quite amusing to watch them fight against the chemistry they felt each time they were together. Despite their battle, this was not an angsty read. There was no push and pull, no real relationship drama. Just two people trying to figure out how to manage a relationship within the workplace while keeping it a secret.


The mystery portion of the story was multi-layered and had some twists that I never saw coming. I kept expecting a big violent showdown, as is the norm in a lot of books, but not here. This is a realistic story involving what could be a realistic crime and two people who work the clues to solve it.

Overall, I loved the refreshing feel of this book. It never felt heavy or weighted down, the pace flowed smoothly and kept me engaged throughout its entirety, and the secondary characters supported the story as well as the hero and heroine. Simply put, this was a feel good, mystery romance with a bit of a slow burn (after this couple’s one night stand) that will carry you away to another world and leave you smiling in the end.

-With Cameron, it was like there were more feelings inside of me than my body was capable of holding. What I felt for him was transcendent, too big and intangible to even put into words.

Maisie Wilkins works as the primary researcher at a private investigation firm in the seaside town in England called Torquay. She’s friendly, kind, and constantly cheerful. Her childhood nickname was Happy-go-Lucky, and she was a people pleaser who others often tried to take advantage of. She considered herself slightly awkward, generally uninteresting, but a good person. Her love life had been pretty boring for a while, but she did have a work crush on the head investigator at her firm. She’d admired Cameron Grant from afar for years, and he’d often starred in her fantasies. He was quite handsome, and her attraction to him had always been harmless since she assumed he’d never be interested in her.

When Maisie attends the annual office Christmas party, she is shocked to see Cameron there. He never shows up for functions, and doesn’t socialize with co-workers. He’s usually cranky, and keeps to himself. He’s intimidating, and a bit terrifying, but when Maisie notices he’s sitting all alone, she decides to be polite, and sit with him. They are complete opposites, but somehow they have some conversation, a few drinks, and end up back at his place. They spend an unforgettable night together, and then have to navigate working together. Maisie can’t afford to jeopardize her job, but she can’t deny how badly she wants her sexy, co-worker with an attitude.

-There was something mesmerizing about Cameron.

-It wasn't often that people riled me, but it seemed this man had a knack for it.

-However much he might frustrate me in real life, when Cameron kissed me, I forgot all about how aggravating he could be.

-He'd kissed me like he was starved for it.

Happy-go-Lucky by L.H. Cosway is a sweet, funny, steamy workplace romance that’s captivating and delightful. Opposites attract and we get a story packed with chemistry, mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this book and loved Maisie’s character and how she evolved throughout the story.

After reading a very realistic, therefore anxiety-causing book, I thought I'd try another romance novel, lighten my mood. I discovered L.H.Cosway a few years back. I enjoyed a couple of her books. That was three, four novels ago, so I'm beginning to think "I'm getting too oldcynical for romance novels".
I don't know what's with the romance novels and the first-person narration, but they just drive me crazy. It doesn't happen with other types of novels.
The trope of the good looking, grumpy, mysterious guy is getting on my nerves as well.
So, I quit at 35%.

DNF @80%

I cannot continue with this book. Its very repetitive and boring. One of my biggest pet peeves in books is when the author intentionally drags out the suspense of the H and h finally getting together. So you have one quick sex scene at the beginning and then just a bunch of 'heated looks from the hero that made the heroine gasp for breathe' in every chapter. And this goes on for like... 10 chapters.

Also, I couldn't connect with the heroine because I found her to be a huge square. And OF COURSE shes been celibate for years and her last boyfriend turned out to be gay.

AUTHORS OF THE UNIVERSE. PLEASE! I BEG YOU! STOP DOING THIS TO US!!! IF youre gonna write a modern romance than write a modern woman!!!!

What a delightful little office romance! Loved it. Ms. Cosway always creates such irresistible heroes. And Cameron Grant is no exception. The heroine was sweet if not a little ditsy. But I loved her too. The case was just a tad hokey, but it kept me interested, so I'm not complaining. The office dynamics were quite funny. Lilah was a hoot. She and I would have definitely been friends. And I don't think I'll ever feel the same when I see a photocopy machine. *evil smile*

L.H. Cosway strikes again! With Happy-Go-Lucky she provides a funny, smexy and swoony contemporary romance in which to escape in.

When the most cranky, brooding and sexy man Maisie Wilkins has ever known shows up at their office Christmas party, her always optimistic disposition compels her to sit with the intimidating and stoic Cameron and after one too many drinks they go back to his place. Can Maisie manage then tension of seeing the man she slept with every day at the office? And will their fling turn into more?

I loved Maisie and Cameron right from the start. She was absolutely lovely, her sweet and bubbly personality was infectious, and she’s also super smart. Cameron was her complete opposite personality wise. He’s a complete grump but equally clever and observant. I really enjoyed their slow burn office romance and how much they rubbed off on each other. He helped her be more assertive and turned into a swoon worth hero.

The P.I. backdrop this romance unfolded in also provides intriguing mysteries, wonderful secondary characters with interesting office dynamics, and topics of interest such as environmental responsibility and the importance of being accountable for one’s actions.

I can’t wait to see what’s next in this series or anything else L.H. Cosway writes for that matter.

Happy Go Lucky is a full length standalone contemporary romance by author L.H. Cosway. It’s written from the heroine’s point of view with a lovely happy ending and no cliffhanger.

This sweet romantic comedy with a twist of a mystery too was one of those books I could not put down. LH Cosway alway writes fantastic characters who clash and enhance each other. The battle for a relationship between these two was unexpected and so fun to watch develop. Grant was gruff, elusive, combative, a loner, and her superior. Maisy was the "happy go lucky girl" always chipper, giving, open and forgiving. But we all know those first looks are only the surface. When they are brought together one drunken office Christmas party night, the outer shell starts to crack and the fun begins.

Maisy works hard, tries hard to make everyone smile, and she's treated like a doormat by a few of her colleagues. She is a researcher for a PI firm, and does an excellent job. She's offered a promotion and a chance to train under Grant (waggle eyebrows) she takes it and together they undercover many mysteries layered while getting to know each other.

This was such a fun read, romance, strife, mystery and comedy, all under these covers. Omg this would be the best movie !

Even if I read the first part of story in newsletter, it still felt I was reading Happy-Go-Lucky for the first time. And I might have loved it even more for that reason alone.
Maisie and Cameron stole my heart. I wasn't sure who I loved more because they were so different but fitted together flawlessly—probably because they were both softies at their cores.
Reading this book made me aching for more. More stories about characters in this book, even some redemption stories but mainly, more Maisie and Cameron, because what we got wasn't enough. There's never enough stories that can make you feel... whole.

The romance and angst were almost non existent!
Although Cameron and Maisie were great characters, their relationship developed at a snail’s pace.
The writer tried to balance the aspects of mystery and romance, but the whole story for me felt flat and with no sparks.

Happy-Go-Lucky was an interesting book to read. It had some sweet moments between a woman with a sparkly personality and her complete opposite, a man who most would describe as a grouch, and it had an intriguing mystery that led to so many secrets coming out which kept me captivated. It also had some office drama, but honestly I could have done without that.

There were parts to this book that I really enjoyed and liked reading, but there were also parts that had me rolling my eyes and wanting to punch certain characters. Maisie didn't start out as the best heroine for me and it was hard to connect with her in the beginning when she was trying way too hard to make her co-workers like her. It was like Cameron said, she was just too happy. But the more I read and the more time she spent with Cameron, the more I appreciated her character and started to like her.

The mystery I liked a lot and I really enjoyed that there were moments that shocked me. I do wish that the mystery went with the romance more, though. It felt like there were times that this was strictly a mystery book and then other times if was more like a forbidden office romance, and not many times where they mixed together. Separately I enjoyed both of those storylines but since it was all one book I would have liked it they actually went together more than they did.

My first L.H.Cosway book and it was a pretty sweet indulgence with it's quintessential British humor and English setting (Torquay, Devon).
It had a certain quirkiness to it that I really enjoyed . This book is not really a romantic suspense in the true sense, instead it is more an office romance that also happens to take place in a detective agency with some added action. Loved both MC's.
I totally picked this up on a whim and I couldn't have been happier with this KU book.
Happy go lucky indeed.

Thanks to author for providing this ARC!!!

Very cute story, perfect if you looking forward for low angst, safe, great story with humor and some twists and a bit of suspense.
Although I've read about 50% through author's email, it's not comfortable to read that way. Yes, I prefer reading my books in one sit.
Hero I loved: swoon, perfect, tender, caring, a bit possessive, sexy, sometimes broody!!! I love the way he was "eye opener" for heroine, although maybe too harsh, later there is some lines from this book.
Heroine was ok, a but too "sunny" in the first half of the story. I'm glad she was strong enough to become better person, and quit being a pushover and nice to everyone.

Safe read: no OP scenes, faithful, no cheating.

I'd like to know more about second characters from this book. Hope author will write more books about them, especially Ellen's and Julian's story.

"I dont see the merit in lying. I've been lied to in the past and it didnt turn out well for anyone involved."

"Cameron exhaled heavily. "The problem is i like seeing you way to much."
"Oh". The air left me for a second as his attention lowered to my mouth. He gripped my elbow and rested his other hand at my hip.
"I like seeing you, Maisie. Not being able to touch you is the problem.". He spoke low, and i trembled."

"How long then? A few months? Years? You cant live your entire life trying to please everyone, Maisie. Somebody's always going to have a problema with you. That's just how world works."

I watched Cameron as he stood by the helm, moving the boat from its spot in the marina, and was struck by how incredible sexy he looked. If Cameron Grant private investigator was a ten on the attractiveness scale, then Cameron Grant sailboat captain was a fifteen. Possible sexteen.

I wanted to love this one. It features one of my favorite tropes: cheery MC overwhelms grumpy MC with light and love...but, it just didn't fully work for me.

The beginning is promising, and I found myself relating to the female MC. She is told that she smiles too much, and I have had that very same comment leveled at me. Both of us are people-pleasers, but where I struggle with my need to please, this MC seemingly overcomes her insecurities quickly because the grumpy MC's take-no-shit attitude rubs off on her. I wish it were that simple in real life.

My other issue with the story is wrapped up in the mystery element. It was kind of all over the place. With different hurdles popping up and creating seemingly unnecessary complications.

Lots of promising elements in this story, but they didn't quite come together for me.

Here is the playlist for the book; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

Feelgood read!!

This book is very comforting, sweet and light romance read.
We follow the story of two co-workers Cameron and Maisie. Two very opposite people, what with grumpy Cameron and very much all time happy Maisie, make this enjoyable and fast read.
Most of the plotline happens at their workplace during one winter, where their relationships grow from drunken one nightstand to full-blown love.

If you are in the mood for some feelgood office romance this book is for you. There was just enough of cuteness but also some mystery that kept my interest to read more.

I love opposites attract as a trope because of that sweet reader's satisfaction of learning together with characters that we are not that much different and also how our presumptions about other people are so wrong. And this book delivered that.

I would say I am more of a Cameron then Maisie. It was hard to relate to that happy go lucky nature. But she wasn't annoying which surprised me. Moreover, I was surprised by how brave she was at times. I loved the subtle way of how the book deals with workplace harassment and overall work experience. At times authors tend to be preachy with topics like this, but not this book.

I would love to read more books with other side characters that we meet in this book *cough Theo *chough.

*Thanks to the author for the copy of the book in exchange for an honest opinion ( all opinions are my own except playlist which I made based by authors Spotify list for those of us who don't have access to that platform)

4.5 'Lovely' Stars!

“I take it back.”
“Take what back?”
“What I said about your smile.” He reached out and caressed my cheek. “It’s not off-putting at all, it’s captivating.”

Oh, swoon!! It’s no wonder we ADORED Happy-Go-Lucky! Talk about a fun, sexy, totally swoon-worthy, endearing read! We adored Maisie, her friends, her family and of course Cameron Grant! We really ‘get’ this author’s humour and the cute Maisie Wilkins had us grinning from ear to ear.

L H Cosway really does write some fabulous heroes and heroines. They’re fun, feisty and vulnerable all at the same time, and we also love a good office romance, and boy were there some sizzling office dalliances between the grouchy, unsociable Cameron, and the happy, eager to please Maisie. We’ll never enter a stationery cupboard without getting all hot and bothered EVER again!

“You know what I think?” he asked, expression intense.
“What do you think?”
“I think we both have a lot to learn from each other.”

Centred around the medium-sized private investigation firm of James & Peterson Investigations, we meet thirty-year-old Maisie Wilkins, a researcher who is such a sweetheart. Maisie just wants everyone to like her. She’s friendly sweet, attentive, and this young lady doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. The thought of a co-worker being annoyed with her would send her into a spin.

‘I would much rather be like me and get hurt than be like Cameron and never be upset by anyone.’

Cameron Grant is the head investigator at the firm and the opposite of Maisie. He’s closed off, doesn’t mix or socialise with the other employees and pretty much glares at anyone who approaches him, and he couldn’t care less what his co-workers think of him, Cameron is also Maisie’s ‘work crush.’

“Is that what you do? You keep away from people so they can’t hurt you?”
“No, I keep myself away from people because most people irritate me.”

One drunken Christmas party sees Maisie go against everything in her personality by sleeping with Cameron – well, she was sozzled, and he is irresistible in that handsome cool way…so you can’t blame the girl! But… they must work together and put their moment of passion behind them. Yeah right…not with their chemistry!!

‘Cameron Grant? His affection was so rare. I imagined it must be wonderful to be on the receiving end of all the love I was certain hid behind his stoic, near impenetrable mask.’

Being this is set in a PI firm, there’s a bit of mystery and intrigue surrounding a certain case Maisie and Cameron take on which adds to the story. It’s a fabulous ‘whodunnit’ mixed into the romance that kept us on our toes, as Maisie and Cameron try to unravel a case that appears to have many layers.

L H Cosway has written some of our favourite stories so it’s no wonder this lady is an automatic 1Click for us. In Happy-Go-Lucky she has delivered yet another heart-warming, romantic and sexy story with the subtlety that consistently draws us in. Whether it’s in the humour or emotion she injects into her stories, there is always a balance to the endearing way she brings her stories to life, never failing to spread warmth and happiness into our hearts. Yep, we LOVED this book.

“You are relentlessly cheerful.”
“And you’re relentlessly grumpy.”
“We’re a match made in heaven.”

Whilst we would’ve liked a little more time with Maisie and Cameron, we hope to meet them in the next book (about different characters), and we may have squealed with delight when we realised the connection to Fauxmance! Spectacularly done!

"5 -Taking chances could lead to spectacular consequences, Stars!"

This was a fun, captivating, smart, engaging story!

I started off reading this story in L.H. Cosway's monthly newsletter and fell instantly in love with Cameron and Maisie's characters.
Reading the whole polished and edited novel was a delight.

This is an office romance that started out as a one night stand at the office Christmas party.
With a little too much to drink by both party's, one thing lead to another and soon Maisie and Cameron were back at Cameron's apartment unable to take their hands off one another.

Cameron is an Investigator for a Private Investigator Firm and Maisie is a researcher for that firm.
When Maisie is offered an opportunity to be trained as an Investigator (because she's smart and has got stellar instincts) things get extremely complicated between Cameron & Maisie because now Cameron is requested to train her.

The attraction is real.
The chemistry is scorching.

Cameron and Maisie are on a case that soon reveals more than they bargained for and the stakes become high.

As they spend more time together, they both realize that what started out as a one night stand has developed into something worth exploring and both want.

Their only goal now is to solve the case and wait until Maisie's training is done so they can be together.

Wonderful story, great writing, and amazing characters.

***5 Stars***

I didn’t read any of the chapters that went out in the author’s newsletter, so I went in absolutely blind and I have to say, I absolutely loved this story. It was sweet, funny, awkward, frustrating, adorkable, smexy, swoonworthy and with just the right amount of drama to keep things interesting, it was simply a fun read overall.

Maisie, Maisie, Maisie. This woman. It’s really hard not to like Maisie, even when you’re scratching your head at how she chooses to handle certain situations, because she truly is a good person. I loved her quirks and how strong she was, even when she didn’t see it. Cameron is...well, yeah, grouchy. He’s blunt and, at times, a bit callous, but once the carapace of disinterest starts to crack, you find that he has a heart of gold, it may be a little bit tarnished, but it is a good one.

Cameron and Maisie’s journey to their HEA was a lot of fun. On the surface they are opposites, but underneath it all, they actually aren’t as opposite as one would think. I loved their awkward moments as much as the moments that not only brought them closer, but made take a look at themselves and start to evolve into better versions of themselves. There are a few bumps in their road, but nothing OTT and I loved where they were at in the end.

This really was a fun read. You get a little opposites attract, office romance, slow burn (to an extent) and a nice little bit of mystery/suspense added into the mix, which made for an engaging read. And as for the secondary cast of characters, they definitely ran the gamut, but I loved Nick and am crossing my toes that we’ll see him again, but am thrilled that Lilah will be getting her own HEA because we get a bit of tease at the end about it and it looks really good!

Note: The author’s spotify playlist for this baby is AWESOME!!!

Well this one fell short for me. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. It was cute. A bit funny at times. The banter between Cameron and Maisie was just okay for me. There were sweet moments between the two of them that I did enjoy.

But right at the end there was a line in the book that just struck me as odd. Maisie went on the say "Cameron Grant was the yin to my yang. The wine to my cheese. The ketchup to my mustard." I don't know if I'd ever use ketchup/mustard as a loving analogy. But that's just me!

Though it wasn't a great read for me I will say if you are a fan of L.H. Cosway no doubt you will enjoy this one!

Maisie’s bubbliness was part of her charm, but her intelligence was what I liked most. And while, Cameron was a grump, he was extremely observant and honest to a fault. However, even he couldn’t withstand Maisie’s sunshiny disposition:)

The romance was subtle and slow, but very good! I liked the interactions-whether it was work or play-because I never knew if funny, steamy, or in the moment was coming up next- I just knew I’d be grinning like the Cheshire Cat!

I loved Maisie and Cameron! Cosway’s newsletter story whetted my appetite for more of these two and Happy Go Lucky didn’t disappoint! A lovely romance, horrid coworkers, and one heck of a case kept this reader happily turning pages into the evening! I hope this becomes a series of their adventures because I simply adored these two!
