When "Life Coach to the Stars" Jocelyn Bloom is embroiled in scandal, the only place she can hide is the one place she wishes she could forget. She left Barefoot Bay-and the boy next door who knew all her secrets-years ago. Now nothing about the tiny island off the coast of Florida is quite how she remembers it, especially Will Palmer. He's even more gorgeous and tempting . . . and still capable of turning her world inside out.

But what if someone is waiting for you?

To Will Palmer, Guy Bloom is more than the elderly, senile neighbor he looks after-he's the last connection to Jocelyn, the woman Will loved and lost. But the reunion with Jocelyn doesn't go smoothly. Shocked by the change in her father's personality, Jocelyn struggles to reconcile her dark childhood with the sweet, confused man who has grown close to Will. Jocelyn has guided countless clients to happiness-but can she escape the rainy days of her past for a new sunny future with Will?

My Take:

The 2nd installment in the Barefoot Bay series, Barefoot In The Sand features Lacey's friend Jocelyn Bloom, a former Mimosa Key resident.  (I reviewed the 1st book Barefoot in the Sand in July, 2012)  Picking up 6 months after the 1st book ends things in Mimosa only get better (for the reader - the characters might disagree) and I found myself once again wishing that I had more time on the treadmill so I could keep reading.

I'd go pre-order this one if I was you....
