Little Pink Taxi
by Marie Laval
Rosalie Heart is a well-known face in Irlwick – well, if you drive a bright pink taxi and your signature style is a pink anorak, you’re going to draw a bit of attention! But Rosalie’s company Love Taxis is more than just a gimmick – for many people in the remote Scottish village, it’s a lifeline.
Which is something that Marc Petersen will never understand. Marc’s ruthless approach to business doesn’t extend to pink taxi companies running at a loss. When he arrives in Irlwick to see to a new acquisition – Raventhorn, a rundown castle – it’s apparent he poses a threat to Rosalie’s entire existence; not just her business, but her childhood home too.
On the face of it Marc and Rosalie should loathe each other, but what they didn’t count on was somebody playing cupid …
Little Pink Taxi is a delightful little gem of a book! Marie Laval managed to blend together a romance, a ghost story, and bit of intrigue to create a great read that kept my attention from the beginning until I finished the very last page.
Rosalie is one of my very favorite types of characters! She is smart, sweet, funny, witty, and quirky! I loved that her last name was Heart because that is exactly what she embodies. She has a huge heart. Because of that heart, she is able to knock down Mac’s walls around his heart. Let me tell you that is no easy feat!
I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about Marc in the beginning. He came across as arrogant, oftentimes rude, especially in that first chapter. He was ruthless in his business dealings, but as Rosalie got to know him better, so did I. I, like Rosalie, saw beyond his cold exterior and began falling for him too.
Not only were the characters well done, so was the story. Laval took her time developing every little detail of the book. I felt like there was nothing left out. The addition of the ghost of Lady Fitheach and the lure of a possible treasure just made the book even better. She also paid great attention to the setting, creating a place I could see clearly in my mind.
Laval is a new author to me, and I can’t wait to read more from her in the future.
