Weekend Arrangement by Sophie Penhaligon is a romance novel that will appeal to those interested in beautiful love stories. Olivia had just bagged her journalism degree and got a house together with her boyfriend, Mark. It was a safe relationship, but she soon realized that Mark wasn’t the easy-going person she thought he was. Fresh out of the relationship, her part-time library job, plus travel guides in the works as an aspiring author, and her best friend, Lottie, kept her company. When a renowned book publishing firm replied to her application, inviting her for a chat, Olivia saw an end to her money worries. However, the moment she came face to face with the publishing god, Daniel Lane, her life changed forever.
Weekend Arrangement by Sophie Penhaligon is all shades of romance, love, humor, and lust. I loved the plot because it was unique, fun, and unpredictable. The storyline was charged with enough life to keep me interested until the last page. Sophie was incredible in developing the characters in such an honest and relatable fashion. My favorite person was Olivia because I saw different versions of her. Olivia presented as a daughter, lover, friend, party animal, reserved girl, wild, and innocent. She pulled all the characters off perfectly, courtesy of the author. I loved Daniel too and felt his pain. Money can only give more choices to individuals but never happiness. We first have to find it within ourselves and also build it with deserving people. This was a delightful book, and I hope to read Luca's and Molly’s stories.
