Take a ride with Love Taxis, the cab company with a Heart …
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 …

I loved this book. It was fun, gripping, entertaining, everything you need in a book. There was suspense and action, along with touching, heart racing loving moments and that glorious touch of mystery. There was also some laugh out loud moments, with myself having to control any random outbursts. I liked the writing style and the switch between Rosalie’s point of view and Marc’s.
I liked Rosalie and Marc. Their chemistry worked really well, and their moments were more than frustrating yet romantic enough for me to want to shout at them to sort it out!! I liked Rosalie’s character in general, she was caring and considerate. She had her funny moments and her sad moments. She the news of Marc’s arrival on the chin and was determined to get to the bottom of it all sensibly. It was nice to see a women do something out of the whole baking thing as well, I loved the fact she was doing something that is generally classed as man’s job. I also love the fact that it’s a pink taxi!!
Marc was a good character as well. He started off as this unemotional man, who didn’t really want anything. A cold hearted man. He turned into this… Emotional, loving, sensual man. He done what was right in the end and that’s what counts really. I would say his development was the biggest, and the best.
With the mystery side of things, I couldn’t decide who I wanted to be behind it all, or if I wanted to hazard a guess. One minute I wanted it to be one person, the next I wasn’t too sure on my choice. It was a different sort of twist and I’m glad it worked out the way that it did.
Overall, I really loved this book. I’m really excited to be given it a fabulous, bright and wonderfully pink 5/5
