About the Book:
All Mel wants is to run the business of her dreams.
Melody Carmichael’s mobile pet grooming business might sink before it can sail when a favorite pet escapes her care. Doggie escape-artist, Daphne, got a taste of freedom, and the Afghan hound refuses to be found.
Enter Zeke Solomon. Desperate to bring the dog home for his grandmother, Zeke steps in to save the day.
And working together with Zeke would be a snap—if he would just stop blaming Mel for Daphne making a break for it.
Zeke is desperate to prove himself worthy of the Solomon name and step out from his father’s shadow. With his father breathing down his neck and demanding he return to the company business, Zeke must decide whether confronting the man he admires most is worth the risk of alienation.
Everything’s falling apart, and Mel’s dream transforms into a nightmare. She thought this was what God wanted for her life, but can you blame her for second-guessing everything?
Was it all just a mistake?
Mishaps off the Mainland is the fifth “Merriweather book” in a new series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
The Independence Island Series: beach reads aren’t just for summer anymore.
Confession: Sarcasm is my love language, and this read had plenty of it from cover to cover. If you aren’t a fan of sarcasm, then this one probably would be for you, but if you eat it up like I do, then it’s sure to be a treat. The witty banter that went back and forth between Zeke and Melody was like medicine to my soul while suffering with the quarantine blues. The humor brought a smile to my face and kept the pages turning. I liked that the romance wasn’t all hot and sizzle but they developed a friendship as well. It made it more believable for me and made me like the characters more. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and will most definitely be reading more from this author in the future!

I do like witty banter and sarcasm, so this sounds like one I would enjoy. Nice review Becca.
