WordsAPlenty received from the author a copy of The Shoe Come First: A Jennifer Cloud Novel by Janet Leigh in exchange for an honest review. Ms. Leigh is also a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree.
Jennifer Cloud’s hardest decision of the day was picking out her shoes to match her clothes and her mood before heading off as an assistant buyer for the upscale Steve Stone Shoe store. Upon arriving one morning, she finds herself jobless and without any prospects of growing her shoe collection. Going to work for her brother, a chiropractor seemed the most logical step. However, Jennifer was going to be facing a lot of changes – mom and dad moving, losing her job, and finding herself the owner of a beautiful necklace and … an outhouse from her recently deceased aunt!?!
The fun is just beginning! Time travel, a hunky Gaelic man, and a top secret organization! Jennifer doesn’t stand a chance; rather, the men don’t stand a chance!
“I’m spunky and I’m fierce and I’m smarter than most men. Bad guys run and hide ‘cause here comes SuperJen.”
During her time travelling, the rescue mission and fighting the bad guys everyone comes to realize Jennifer is uniquely different, passionate about wanting to help people and her shoes!
“The shoes come first,” he said as he tossed my new babies to the floor and turned out the light.
A wonderfully delightful time traveling mystery that is romantic, fun and suspenseful. The characters that Janet Leigh creates are unique, vivid and well developed. Leigh is a talented writer who uses vivid imagery to capture the readers attention. The book was well written and the fun timed to elicit the deepest belly laugh! The time traveling adventure piece is unique – past travel only and sideways! Jen was already plotting how to turn this little bit of knowledge into shoe buying visits!
If you’re looking for a light, romantic and funny book – this is it. If you want intrigue and mystery – this is it as well! I couldn’t put the book down. I enjoyed the book so immensely that after turning the last page, I was checking to see if there was a 2nd in the series yet!
WordsAPlenty gives this The Shoes Come First a well deserved 5 star rating.
