Review by Anniek

Carrie is an interior designer and she's living the perfect life. She is very good at her job and well respected by her employer and customers. Carrie is close to her family and friends and has had a long lasting relationship with her (hopefully) soon to be fiancé. When she comes home early on their anniversary to surprise her boyfriend she ends up being the one getting a surprise. Devastated Carrie needs to start her life all over again. The only way she can do that is to pack up her stuff and move across the country.

Carrie ends up in Palm Beach and her house turns out to be more than she expected. Things start out great when she also manages to get a good job at a fantastic interior design company. Her first assignment is to design a house for Brad Larson. Carrie has no intentions of starting a new relationship and she sets clear boundaries for the town playboy.

Brad has a successful business in buying and selling houses. Before he sells the houses he always lets them be designed first and then he will live in them for a while. Brad has never been a one woman kind of guy. He usually hooks up with someone for a little while and then he goes his own way again. When he meets Carrie he is instantly drawn to her. He wants nothing more than to get to know her but she's keeping him at a distance.

Is Carrie ready to take another chance on love when old memories are resurfacing? Will she choose the man she thought she wanted to marry or will she be brave enough to stay on the new path she's chosen for herself?

The Right Design is a sweet romantic story. Carrie is a successful woman, but she isn't snobby or arrogant and I liked her character very much. She is strong and even during the pain she's going through she isn't afraid to look beyond what happened and stay true to herself. Carrie knows her worth and I am very happy that Isabella Louise Anderson chose a strong female main character.

Brad fits the description of a playboy, but that's just on the outside. On the inside he's actually caring and loving. He needs a woman like Carrie to keep him grounded and she can help him change his ways. If you're looking for romance that will make you be on cloud 9 in no time The Right Design will be perfect for you. It's a light and fun read. I absolutely recommend this book for a nice day at the beach.

Get this book while it's just 99 pennies! For a limited time, you can get your copy of The Right Design for just 99 cents from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.


  1. I really don't have a favorite summer read. I like a light romance and just about anything on my TBR list.

  2. This story sounds amazing! I love romance and I love beachy reads so the two together is sure to be a hit with me! The cover is gorgeous as well. I look forward to reading this one!!

  3. There are times when it's so nice to have a light read that doesn't require a lot of thinking.

  4. Sounds like a lot of fun!


  5. I'd like to see how Carrie's & Brad's relationship grows.
