Spotlight & Review: Flying By The Seat Of Her Knickers by Eliza Watson

Flying by the Seat of My Knickers

Why run from your troubles when you can fly instead? 

When Caity Shaw is fired from her first job that doesn’t require an elf uniform, her older sister, Rachel, an event planner, hires her to work a meeting in Dublin. Caity jumps at the opportunity to travel abroad and escape her pathetic life. However, even four thousand miles from home, there’s no avoiding debt collectors, an overbearing mother, and haunting memories of a controlling ex.

While in Dublin, Caity suffers a series of humiliating mishaps, causing her to lose even more faith in herself. Caity struggles to earn Rachel’s respect—and to keep Declan, her hot Irish coworker, at arm’s length. Declan repeatedly saves Caity’s butt and helps boost her self-confidence, making it difficult to keep her distance from the charming womanizer. When Declan helps her research her Irish grandmother, Caity discovers the mysterious past of the courageous woman she barely knew might hold the answers to her future.

Flying by the Seat of my Knickers is the first novel in The Travel Mishaps of Caity Shaw series and all books should be read in order.

Caity Shaw's sister Rachel runs an event planning company and hires her to work an assignment in Dublin. After losing her first ever job, she's thankful for the her a chance to rebuild her life after leaving an abusive relationship and to pay off her debts. Only, the job has its challenges and she attracts them like a bee to honey...

One calamity after another, I felt pity for poor Caity trying to juggle her new job whilst dealing with ongoing issues which have followed her to the emerald isle. Equally, I could empathise with her dealing with the pressure of trying to impress her sister at a time in her life when her confidence and self-esteem are at an all-time low. Therefore as the novel progresses, it's heart-warming to see how little by little she learns from her mistakes and feels more comfortable with the job she is doing.

Caity may be the star of the show, but there's a notable supporting cast; Rachel, Gretchen and Declan along with the lovely Irish backdrop create a light-hearted fun novel. The inclusion of the search for Caity and Rachel's Irish ancestry is a delightful side plot which I expect to see further development of future familial discoveries in future instalments of this series.

Overall, the author has built a firm foundation for what promises to be an entertaining and enlightening series.
