As for conflicts of interests, we are talking community centre vs. big money in the form of the owner of the local shopping complex out to make a deal that involves the community centre, and on the love scene we have Elish – leader of the community centre – who is just a little too quick in judging the actions of her friend Aisling – daughter of the owner of the shopping complex.
But before we get to the conflict part of the storyline, we have a chance to see how Elish and Aisling meet and get acquainted, with a bit of help from a number of friends that seem to think they are right for each other.
“Conflict of Interest” is a well developed tale with a solid storyline and a number of characters along with sub plots that gives the story some substance. The main attraction though is – as always – the developing friendship and romance between the leading women.
On my first reading of this story, I put it in the category of “ok story worth reading, but I won’t be going back a second time”. I came across it again the other day and took time to revisit part of it and decided that a complete reread was in order. So if you are in need of a little something to pass the time – try your hand at this.
Oh and by the way – the story takes place in Ireland and Scotland which is refreshing, it’s just like trying a new flavour of ice cream or something – it tickles your taste buds a little and maybe keeps you slightly more focused.
Don’t worry, I’ll take my leave now so you can get on with your reading. I just want to leave you with a little something to chew on; ”Her look was finished off with a pair of tan leather flip-flops. El wondered if Aisling’s toes were claustrophobic, she had never seen them enclosed.” … this never crossed my mind, but I guess that toes have feelings too!
