A Jersey Dreamboat by Georgina Troy
Series: Jersey Scene #3
Release Date: 9th July 2015
Publisher: Accent Press
Genres: Chick Lit

The third installment of the captivating Jersey Scene series. Izzy and her best friend Jess are badly let down when a Jersey socialite, who has agreed to hire their entire vintage party stock for her upcoming wedding, decides to elope instead - leaving the girls with no bookings and no money. 

Feeling despondent, the girls try a night out to cheer themselves up, and meet the captivating and aristocratic Ed, who invites the girls on a cruise to Nice on his yacht, together with his two brothers. Romance builds on the luxury trip, but when a last-minute wedding booking is offered, the girls must return to Jersey, and real life has to begin again ...or has it?

A Jersey Dreamboat has one of the best opening lines I have read! From that moment on I knew I was going to love this book. Izzy and Jess are two sassy girls with attitude. They might not have the best business sense at times but their hearts are in the right place. Devastated when the rather snobby Catherine leaves them high and dry financially when she elopes, it seems their vintage wedding stock business may seriously be on the rocks. Like any of us would, they jump at the chance to go on a sailing adventure with some seriously gorgeous men! I mean who wouldn't. Soon love is in the air with a little bit of French ohhh laaaaa laaaaaaaa! However, not everyone on board is wanted there and tensions become a little fraught. 

This is a great read set against beautiful backdrop of Jersey, the authors home. The story has some back stories and information around the war and I have to say that my heart did break a little when the secret behind the locked room was revealed! I won't give it away but its so sad!!!
A well-written and at times quite a humorous book, I loved the interaction between the characters. Izzy and Jess just say it as it is and I really liked that about them. The story flowed so easily with lots of little twists and turns along the way and some characters revealing their true motives and intentions and appearances are not all they seem. Can Jess and Izzy pull their business out of trouble or is there more trouble waiting for them?  Although this was the 3rd book in the series it can without a doubt be read as a standalone. However, I think I might just have to go read the other 2 books now and plan a trip to Jersey. Definitely a recommended read!
