London Spark as Peacekeeper – “Starry-Eyed Love” by Helena Hunting

The Spark sisters are a fiercely loyal, tight-knit threesome, working as a unit to manage Spark House, their ever growing destination event planning business. As they’re out celebrating the “Fun London” who re-emerged following a recent breakup with her boyfriend, middle sister London is hit on by a scruffily clad, but very attractive stranger, London is not impressed, nor is she interested.

Fast forward a few months to when a multinational company shows interest in partnering with Spark House on a new green initiative that could significantly increase their visibility and their bottom line. The Spark sisters agree that London should be in charge of landing this deal. As she’s nearing the end of what London is confident has been a successful presentation to Holt Media, she is interrupted by the CEO himself, Jackson Holt who happens to be the attractive but scruffily clad stranger she’d rebuffed. Only now he looks like a CEO instead of a homeless bum.

Over the next couple of months the two are thrown together often but Jackson is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional until after the launch of the green deal, despite his desire to do otherwise. London is thrown off guard by Jackson’s apparent change of heart and when parts of his past come to light she begins to doubt his sincerity. Her disappointment is magnified by the demands of Spark House and soon London begins to doubt her place on both fronts.

“Starry-Eyed Love” is Helena Hunting’s second book in the Spark House trilogy. I love the imperfections of her characters with their fresh dialogue and captivating personalities. Her original plots range from lighthearted fun to emotional pulls that leave you wanting more and I’m looking forward to reading Harley’s story too. I do however wonder at a few instances where Hunting seems to have difficulty with the correct usage of I, me, my and myself. These are elementary and I’m surprised to see them confused by an author of Hunting’s caliber. Four stars.

The expected publication date of “Starry-Eyed Love” is May 10, 2022 so check with your favorite bookseller and reserve your copy. My thanks to Net Galley and St. Martin’s Griffin for providing me with an Advance Readers Copy (ARC). I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book.
