Publisher Description

From the author of The Summer Job comes a laugh-out-loud, heartwarming story about one woman’s impulsive fib that jump starts a summer of reinvention and learning about love, life, and what it means to accept yourself.

She has a plan. Fate has other ideas.

The last place very average thirty-one-year-old Mara Williams thought she’d be is on a solo vacation impersonating her fortune teller when she finally meets the one. Josef, a gorgeous Austrian cellist, sits down for a reading and before she knows it, she’s telling him his destiny will be sitting in a pub in the English seaside town of Broadgate on the last Friday of August. And her name is Mara.
 
Enter Project Mara: three months to turn herself into the stylish, confident woman she’s always hoped to be. Meanwhile, the crumbling, formerly glamorous beachside pool club where she works is under threat and her eccentric colleagues enlist her help to save it, just as a handsome new housemate casts doubts on her ideas about “the one.” Can Mara pull off the transformation of a lifetime? And by summer’s end, will she know who is her destiny?

A Great Beach Read

A highly entertaining book that is perfect for your beach or pool bag!

Mara and Charlie are best friends who were supposed to go to Budapest for a girl’s trip, but Charlie cancels last minute as she feels she can’t leave her newborn. Mara decides to go anyways. Mara stumbles upon a fortune teller. She is told she will meet the man of her dreams, but has to fix one thing. Before she finds out what she need to fix, the fortune teller goes into labor and leaves. A man comes in just as Mara is pretending to be the fortune teller, so she gives him his fortune and tells him to meet her on a specific day as she thinks he is the one. Will he follow his fortune and meet her?

Meanwhile, Mara’s life hasn’t been perfect, so she often consults her horoscope for guidance. After having one failure after another, can she figure out what to fix or will her life continue to spiral out of control? Can she do this before she potentially meets the man of her dreams? This book will keep you turning the pages and guessing until the end!

A fun light read that will have you laughing at times! Perfect for those who love a good Rom-Com. A great vacation read!
