So, what did Jen the Bibliophile forget to do? Well, I was all prepared to post my review yesterday and that definitely didn't happen, which sucks cause it was my day of the week. *frowns* Also, I was all prepared to post this lovely Guest Review by the wonderful Jencey this morn and also spaced. Where oh where has my mind gone to? I was also reading to post about the giveaway on my solo blog and that spaced my mind as well...drat!
So, without further ado. I would like to welcome the wonderful Jencey whose favorite genre is chicklit and not only is our good friend on Goodreads.com, but also keeps her own blog at Writer's Corner. On to the review!

Review: The book begins with the Blanchard’s on vacation on the island of Anguilla. They have been here many times before. Melinda and Bob have developed a love for this Caribbean Island over the years. They love it so much they open a restaurant called Blanchards. The first part of the book discusses what efforts it took to open the restaurant and their struggles with the Customs Department in Anguilla. The second part is about their first year running the restaurant. The staff of this restaurant is like family to those who work there. From all the celebrity guests who visit the restaurant to local politics. Then part three is the most compelling part of the book. The Blanchards go on vacation and category four hurricane hits the island of Anguilla. What happens to the restaurant? Will they be able to rebuild?
I liked this book. I thought it was an easy read and kept my interest. Also the book discusses that anything is possible when you put your mind to it. What are your dreams? What would you do to accomlish your dreams?
