    1. Samantha March

      For full disclosure, I was a beta reader for this novel in the early stages. I was full of excitement when I read an early draft, and even more excited once I was able to dive in to the finished manuscript. This is a book for me! As someone who loves travel, reading a novel set in Dublin had me all kinds of hooked. But more than just a very cool setting and reading about castles, there is a solid plot here. We follow Caity who has always been in the shadow of sister Rachel, and now is at her bec [...]

      :: 5 Pretty Little Stars :: This is a such a fun novel! I read it in one day as it is not only fast paced but extremely interesting! Seeing as I am not much of a traveler I really look forward to reading books that take place abroad and this one did just that! Not only this, the characters in this novel are extremely relatable. I truly felt like the heroine, Caity, could be a best friend of mine. This is honestly one of my favorite things about this novel. If I cannot relate to the characters, i [...]

      I don’t know if I’ve ever read something this fun and lively! Flying by the Seat of my Knickers had it all; stimulating writing and an original plot topped off with a quirky main character. This is a brilliant read for anyone looking for something amusing and upbeat. When Caity is fired from her first proper job, her only fall back is to work for her sister, Rachel, as an event planner in Dublin. Jumping at the chance to travel, even if it means dealing with her overbearing, workaholic siste [...]

      As fluffy "chick lit romance" goes, I enjoyed this one. I don't read this genre much anymore as I prefer more substance to my "female centric" fiction. Characters of substance and all.However, something about the title, cover, and premise tickled my fancy and happily delivered on its promise.Usually the problem with this genre is that the heroine has too much of "TSTL" (too stupid to live) to tolerate. But Caity Shaw, while flighty, simply needs to grow up a bit.It's a fun lark with added good d [...]

    5. Sonia

      Esta novela moderna, cómica, te hace viajar con el personaje. Es un libro corto perfecto para ese viaje en avión o ese fin de semana lluvioso que solo quieres estar en tu sofá en pijamas con un buen libro relajante. Te deja queriendo saber más sobre el personaje, sobre su próxima aventura. Lo mejor es que tiene una segunda parte que ya anote en mi lista de libros a leer.

      What a gorgeous book cover and very apt title for this book!I was contacted by Eliza Watson to read and review the first book in the Caity Shaw series called Flying by the Seat of my Knickers and I must say this book tick all my bookish boxes.

After b [...]

      This book was darling. I really loved the main character Caity. She was completely likeable, relatable and just a joy to follow. Her story was far from perfect and I think a lot of readers can relate (or could relate) to that time of struggling financially, trying to figure out who you are meant to be, trying to please a sibling, navigate romantic relationships and deal with the parents who "just want the best". I thought Caity was very well developed throughout, yet she still is a work in progr [...]

    10. Lyra

      Flying by the Seat of My Knickers is a fun, fast read that reminded me of all the joys of my first major travel experience. Caity, an American hoping to escape a string of bad luck, takes a job assisting her event-planer sister with a week-long meeting in Ireland. More of a women's fiction, this first person focuses on Caity as she works to impress her sister and regain her shattered confidence. I loved the character's voice and how she provided a voice of optimism and compassion in spite of the [...]

    11. Alexia Adams

      As a somewhat jaded traveler, Flying by the Seat of My Knickers let me relive the joy and excitement of that first trip abroad where everything is different and new. I've never been to Ireland so I was really keen on the descriptions and little insider information for this destination. The characters were well-rounded and interesting and by the end I was really rooting for Katy. Just a note, this is not a traditional romance but anyone who secretly dreams of going to Ireland will love it. A thor [...]

    12. Christy Newton

      Brilliant! When the story starts out you can't help but feel sorry for Caity and all she has been through, but you'll soon stop feeling bad for her and be cheering her on. The characters are all relatable and well written. Full of comedy, hope, adventure, and even a hint of romance. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next. Well done, Watson!

    13. Alice Teets

      For some reason I thought this was a cozy mystery, but it was more like chick lit. Regardless, I liked it a lot. Caity was fun, and the story moved quickly. I will read more in this series.

    14. Samantha Glass

      Very quaint. Fun, easy read. Makes me want the book a trip to Ireland. New to me author, but enjoyed her story telling and pacing. Will read others of hers.

    15. Meghan Lloyd

      Wow! That's really my first reaction after reading this book, and it happened at the end of just about every chapter. I L-O-V-E-D this book! It should never have ended. I need more. Thankfully there is a second book coming out, so I won't have to wait too long.Caity Shaw's life is a train wreck. She has an ex who has become a stalker, she was fired from her last job because of said ex, and she is working for her sister who trusts her not at all. The story opens with her in a bratwurst costume fo [...]

Little does she know about the series of mishaps the journey has in [...]

      I thought this was so much fun to read! I couldn’t wait to keep reading to see what happened in Caity’s life! We all need to travel to another place and read about the escapades of others. Imagine dressing up like a bratwurst in a bun, as that is the first of many jobs her sister Rachel has in mind for Caity. Of course she is bold and says I’ll do it! Her life had taken a turn for the worse in the states as her ex-boyfriend is stalking her and as a result he helped get her fired from her l [...]

      I quite enjoyed this book. It was a slight divert from my normal reads of the past several years for this one and I'm glad I read it. A change is as good as rest isn't it ☺The story plays out well, it's very visual and Eliza writes with a chatty prose which I thoroughly enjoy. I did struggle a little with the paragraphs between speech, it stilted the flow a little bit for my liking but nonetheless I was certainly engaged all the way through.Flying By The Seat Of My Knickers has a plethora of c [...]

    20. Cait O'Sullivan

      From the fabulously feisty first line through the very last, I was thoroughly entertained by Caity Shaw: a) she obviously has a great name b) this is set in Ireland and depicts some great places, not forgetting the wonderful Castle and I loved the various Irish music references c) there is a cute Irish guy (bestill my beating heart) d) the fun she gets up to when getting to grips with the world of Event Management e) when I got to the end, I discovered the next installment of Up the Seine withou [...]

      This book was my first experience with an Ireland setting and I LOVED it!! I MUST go to Dublin and find a Declan to show me around! Such a fun and enjoyable read - I could hear the Irish accents as I read (think of the Irish musical group, Celtic Thunder!) I can't wait to read more of Caity's traveling mishaps! Great weekend read for escaping reality! I was provided a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    22. Laura Reading

      A sweet clean read with different layers concerning relationships.Nicely paced, with hints at past difficulties and advice about believing in yourself before you take on responsibility for others. It gave me a lot to think about regarding hotels and travel.I was thinking this book would make a fun TV series.I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

    23. Laura

      This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    24. E.P.

      "Flying By the Seat of my Knickers" is part of the burgeoning genre ofI don't know exactly what to call itories about hapless young women who have to turn their lives around by having adventures and finding love. It's chick lit of a very specific sort.Of course, what it really is at its heart is a heroic journey/coming of age tale, but presented in the lightest, most cheerful and upbeat version. Heroines in these tales often have dead-end jobs (or no jobs at all), failed relationships, and every [...]

Like many abusers, Andy controlled her life keeping her from seeing her friends and family members, until she didn't really have anyone else in her life but him. He also made her feel like she was never enough, and that she had to stay thin. A counselor at a women's shelter finally helps her get the courage to [...]

    26. Elizabeth Ray

      I'm so glad I downloaded this book while it was free! It ended up being really good. Caity has just gotten out of an abusive relationship. She is desperately trying to become her own person and leave her fear behind. Her sister, Rachel, owns an event planning company and at the request of their mother, she hires Caity for a gig in Ireland. Caity doesn't have much work experience and she's trying not to embarrass Rachel, while hoping that they can get their sisterly relationship of the past back. [...]

    27. Jemma

      Undemanding fluff, yet not the endearing, tale of travel misadventures that you may expect. However, it does earn points for capturing what it is like to work in "events" and for the coincidentally topical toxic relationship which the protagonist has escaped from. Like many of these Internet books though, it suffers from not really being the whole story. Several arcs are set up but none of them are resolved, you have to read the next and probably the book after that too. I can see why this trick [...]

    28. Maria Thomas

      First off, I love this title. I liked that Caity was working to overcome having been a victim of domestic emotional abuse and that she was proactively trying to better her situation in life which during the course of this book was pretty bleak. Also that she was trying to improve relationships with her family. I liked that Caity's flaws seemed pretty realistic. Loved that she was influenced by a grandmother she knows nothing about. Her unknown heritage was still a strength to her despite all the [...]

    29. Amy

      Cute and charming Caity's life was a mess and at the end is still a bit. She got a lot happen to her and yet this story is about how she picked herself up and brushed off the muck. This story makes you root for her and you want her to succeed because well she could have been you at one point in your life. I want her relationship with her sister Rachel to grow stronger and for them to be closer. I want Caity to not have to always look over her shoulder to keep an eye out for her psycho ex boyfrie [...]
