Digging Deeper

Genre: Contemporary Comedy

What I liked: One thing is clear- you never know quiet what you're going to find wen you start digging.

This line says it all about this story. This story follows the story of Beck and Flick. Two cast of characters in their own worlds until they meet each other. Beck has a dream since he was young and is passionate about archaeology, which I loved because it was also a passion of mine. It was great to see a hero with intelligence instead of brawn for once. I also loved Flick, she is passionate yet clumsy which helps her keep meeting Beck in the funniest of ways. The characters, the plot, and the dialogue was great, it all fit like a puzzle. Elsborg knows how to create and was certainly in her element when writing this story. This is a story for those of us that love life and have a passion for things, but find romance in the most interesting of ways. This is a must read and I would recommend it to those who love romance and the comedy that always seems to follow it.

Book Blurb:

Archaeologist Beck isn’t expecting much to come out of this summer’s dig. While his colleague spends the summer in Italy, Beck draws the short straw supervising a group of archaeology students excavating on the grounds of Hartington Hall in Yorkshire. Little does Beck realize when he saves a redhead from the attentions of an amorous ram, that this accident-prone female will throw his ordered life into chaos.

 

The last thing Flick needs in her life is a digger, because some secrets are meant to stay buried. Very deep. But Beck is irresistible. She’d love to get him into bed, though after the incident at the swimming pool, the collapsing wall, the snake bite and the unexploded bomb—a hospital bed looks more likely. As their relationship lurches from one disaster to another, Beck has to delve deep to get to the bottom of this irrepressible redhead.

 

One thing is clear—you never know quite what you’re going to find when you start digging.

  1. Thanks, Denise. I'm glad you liked it. I had a lot of fun writing it and sad to say - I'm a bit like klutzy Flick. The spray tan booth bit was entirely true.
