Book Description:

A chance encounter . . . Grace Warren's life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.  

A chance for love . . . Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace's rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he's every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there's something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he's everything she's sure she doesn't want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she's willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.


I'm a huge fan of Rachael Renee Anderson's books.  They have all been clean, funny, and touching. Working it Out is no exception. This book, however, had a slightly different feel - more grown-up, or mature, or serious or something. Anderson still gets in the laughs though. Multiple times throughout the book I laughed out loud at what the different characters had done or said. Probably my favorite thing about this book was the focus, not on the characters getting together, but staying together. A lot of times in books, and in real life we focus solely on getting people together, and once they are we tend to forget that there are going to be rough times, or that those quirks you thought were cute while dating will drive you nuts down the road.  I love how this book focus' on compromise and staying true to yourself while still allowing the other person to be who they are.

The only down side to this book, and it isn't really a down side, is that it seems to be an unwritten rule that someone in the novel has to be obscenely well to do. In fact, I think all of her books that I've read have that. It just seems a bit unrealistic, but doesn't hamper the stories in any way; this one especially, it's hard to go on a 14 day heli-skiing trip if you don't have a lot of money.

Would I read it again? Yes. Would I add it to my collection of books at home? Yes. Another winner by Rachael Anderson.

About the Author:

Rachael Anderson is the author of five novels (Working It Out, The Reluctant Bachelorette, Minor Adjustments, Luck of the Draw, and Divinely Designed) and two novellas (Twist of Fate, from the All I Want anthology and The Meltdown Match from The Timeless Romance Anthology: Summer Wedding Collection). She's the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
