When all you hold dear is taken away . . .
When a hurricane roars through Lacey Armstrong's home on the coast of Barefoot Bay, she decides all that remains in the rubble is opportunity. A new hotel is just what Mimosa Key needs, and Lacey and her teenage daughter are due for a fresh start. And nothing, especially not a hot, younger architect, is going to distract Lacey from finally making her dreams a reality.
A second chance is the only thing you have left.
Love has already cost Clay Walker everything. And if he's going to have any chance of picking up the pieces of his life, he needs the job as Lacey Armstrong's architect. What's not in the plans is falling for the headstrong beauty. Her vision of the future is more appealing than anything he could have ever drafted for himself. Will Clay's designs on Lacey's heart be more than she can handle, or will she trust him to build something that will last forever?
WEEEE! I will upfront 100% admit that this book might be labeled a little bit cheesy by some people, but I LOVED this story and it has nothing to do with the title - although for a girl who likes reading books by a gentle lakefront it didn't hurt any. Every page kept me glued , cheering for certain characters and wanting to trip others.
This is book #1 in what promises to be a series and I hope that comes to fruition because I want to know what happens with the rest of the characters, even the one I wanted to trip. A fun, engrossing story with romance, family drama, and a good dose of putting bullies in their place I'll recommend this one for beaches, pools, airplanes, bathtubs, treadmills and cozy fireside reading....
