Must Love Otters

Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon

Hollie Porter is the chairwoman of Generation Disillusioned: at twenty-five years old, she’s saddled with a job she hates, a boyfriend who’s all wrong for her, and a vexing inability to say no. She’s already near her breaking point, so when one caller too many kicks the bucket during Hollie’s 911 shift, she cashes in the Sweethearts’ Spa & Stay gift certificate from her dad and heads to Revelation Cove, British Columbia. One caveat: she’s going solo. Any sweethearts will have to be found on site.

Hollie hopes to find her beloved otters in the wilds of the Great White North, but instead she’s providing comic relief for staff and guests alike. Even Concierge Ryan, a former NHL star with bad knees and broken dreams, can’t stop her from stumbling from one (mis)adventure to another. Just when Hollie starts to think that a change of venue doesn’t mean a change in circumstances, the island works its charm and she starts to think she might have found the rejuvenation she so desperately desires. But then an uninvited guest crashes the party, forcing her to step out of the discomfort zone where she dwells and save the day … and maybe even herself in the process.

My Review

Must Love Otters is the charming story of Hollie Porter. She has a mediocre life and boyfriend. After a hard time at work and her boyfriend forgotting to record her favourite show, she decides to change her life. First, she tells her boyfriend to move out. Then, she has the grand idea of travelling to Canada to gain some new perspective on life. It is romantic comedic at its finest. It is really a sweet story. It is a nice read after some of the heavier themes I have read recently. I enjoyed watching Hollie grow throughout the novel.
I really like Hollie's character. She is someone you can relate to. This is a story that could happen to anyone. Plus, her quirks and attitude only make her human. I could see fans of Stephanie Plum like this novel. I also love how fond she is of wildlife. It is a great passion.
I was also fascinated by Hollie's father acting as both father/ mother. Probably because I was raised by a single mother in a similar fashion. As well, he truly cared for his daughter. 
Ryan was really sweet. I enjoyed watching him battle it out with Hollie.  He was more than your typical romantic comedy male lead.
