Best Foot Forward is the first book of Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. This is my first book from this author. Her characters are witty and full of spunk. This series is going to be one of the series that will keep you reading because it is a fun easy read. Liberty or Libby is someone I can see being friends. Her outgoing innocence is too funny. She comes up with her own suspicions that could have happens. She tells the Detective Sergeant James Harper her view of the crime. She is so believable that Detective Sergeant James believes she is the thief. Keep reading to see what Libby going to do-will she be able to shed some light on the case or will she fail?
This is my second read by this author and i liked it just as much as the first book. Its funny and lighthearted and just a breath of fresh air in the mix of books I’ve read lately. This is the second book in The Liberty Lawrence series but it can be read as a standalone. With that being said, i would suggest reading them in order because there are characters that you are introduced to in the first book that are also in this one. PLUS it is also a good read.
Libby just recently started a job as a reporter but man is her boss Dave a floozy. He runs around like a chicken with its head cut off and often lives her hanging without a word and he doesn’t treat her well either. When life get tough she has to decide if the course she is on is worth it or if she should step it up and move in a different direction.
I enjoyed this book and i am looking forward to reading more by this author.
I would recommend this book to a friend!
Happy Reading! <3
This book is perfect for anyone that wants a good, funny, lighthearted read! I was entertained from the very first page and i thought this was a great way to start a series. This fun story is about Libby. She is a junior manager at a hotel and she LOVES designer shoes. When Libby founds out her boss’s office is the site of a theft, she is convinced she knows who the culprit is BUT, unfortunately the investigating officer isn’t convinced her theory is true and dismisses her. The banter between those two is hilarious! I couldn’t get enough of those two. I am looking forward to reading more of this series and more by this author!
I would recommend this read to a friend!
Stepping It Up is book two in the Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. Even though this is the first book I have read by this author, and I have missed book one, I have read nothing but good feedback on this series, and knew I would enjoy it regardless of what order I read the books.
Libby is a reporter with a sassy, quirky outlook on life. She feels a bit isolated in her new job, and is having trouble connecting with colleagues and superiors. This story shines a light on so many dilemmas, starting a new job, trying to make a good impression on the bosses, finding love, and so much more. I had many moments of laughter, frustration on behalf of Libby, contentment, astonishment. I was constantly impressed, speechless and out of breath. Never did the author give me a moment without something dramatic to read. A never ending plethora of pleasure. 4 stars.

Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens is the second book in the Liberty Lawrence series .The trials and tribulations of Libby continues in this fun book. She is now working as a reporter for the Daily Chronicle but is having a hard time getting into the system at work. Her boss runs everywhere and she is not feeling very welcome.
I am glad to read about Libby again. She is full of fashion and has a habit of falling into odd situations. This is a fun read that had me laughing at the exploits. This can be read as a standalone but trust me start with book one to get the back story of the characters. The characters are more developed in this book and have all grown on me. Also, the story flows and moves quickly. This is a great read to get away from the everyday. I look forward to more Liberty Lawrence in the future.
Best Foot Forward by Bea Stevens is the The Liberty Lawrence Series . Liberty aka Libby is a fun, fashionista who works in a hotel. What happens when there is a theft and she has a possible suspect in mind? In steps a handsome officer working the case that she finds herself being attracted to more and more. This is a cute, lighthearted story. If you are label conscious you will find that you are familiar with the brands that she is mentioning. Despite that I find Libby to be a fun character. This story made me laugh which I really enjoyed. There are some silly escapades but I grew to care about what would happen with Libby. Also, when I finished the book I was already wanting to jump to the next book.
Stepping it Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series book two) By Bea Stevens
I just found myself getting lost in this book. I couldn’t put it down. I found the author’s writing style to be quite addictive. I really found the characters to be realistic and relatable. I really found myself routing for Libby. I really enjoyed how the author was able to entwine enough drama and just a hint of romance to keep you glued to the pages.
I like how Libby is down to earth and how her character feels real. The drama that unfolds in the book just adds to it and keeps the reader interested. I also like how Libby and James have their ups and downs and how they really pull out of them and seem to grow stronger. I was a bit anxious when it came to James’ ex but it seems that even that drama couldn’t bring them down. I will definitely be reading more from this author and hopefully this series.

Best Foot Forward by Bea Stevens
The Liberty Lawrence Series Book 1
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
This is a wonderful book. There is drama, mystery, romance, and humor all throughout. The story is sweet and flowed very nicely.
Liberty or as she is know by her friends, Libby, is a good friend and a hard worker, but she gets on my nerves sometimes. She is very self conscious when it comes to dating, and she overthinks everything. I love that she wants to investigate the theft for real with her best friend Cassie, and they seem to be on to the person responsible, until there not.
I really like Detective James Harper. At first I thought he was going to be a jerk, but then he turns it all around on me and makes me love him. He doesn’t believe Libby when she tells him who she thinks the thief is, due to her having a very personal issue with that so called thief.
Connor. Libby’s boyfriend Conner also works at the hotel and has recently been spotted hanging out and being way too friendly with the bar maid Bianca. I believe Conner thinks he is God’s gift to women for the way he acts and some of the suggestions he makes regarding his relationship with Libby and his relationship with Bianca!
The ending had me smiling. I was surprised at who the thief turned out to be and the way Libby’s life was turned around. The ending was a beautiful wrap up to such a good book, I could not put it down. I would definitely recommend this book!
What can I say, I fell madly in love with this series from the get go. Liberty is one of those characters that is completely relatable and you have no choice but to love her on site.
Her new job is a reporter and unfortunately its not all cracked up to what she thought. Chandler, the guy she’s supposed to shadow runs everywhere which prove to be rough on her shoes. Not only that, but he sneaks off without her. The girls in the office don’t necessarily like her plus she crushes on doesn’t seem to notice her.
These book are seriously addicting and completely relatable. I’m impatiently tapping my foot for book 3!
Best Foot Forward is the first in the Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. This was such a light – hearted, fun, enchanting, perfect binge read for the weekend book. I was completely captivated from the get go and was so excited to jump into book 2 next.
Liberty has to be one of my favorite Heroine’s. She loves her fashion but she has a clumsy side that us so easy to fall in love with. She is the junior manager at a London hotel where her boss’s office has had a theft. She’s quite positive she knows who it is but the hot as all get out detective doesn’t really care what she has to say about it.
There was not one thing I didn’t love about this book. Miss Stevens did a beautiful job setting up the building blocks for this series and I’m dying for more!
