In seaside Blueberry Cove, Maine, friends are just another word for family, and big-city politics take a backseat to local pride. But the real treasure on these shores is always love…
When D.C. lawyer Hannah McCrae heads home for her brother’s wedding, she’s dragging a lot of baggage along with her—and she doesn’t mean suitcases. Betrayed personally, and humiliated professionally, the last thing she wants is a new man. That’s fine with square-jawed, rugged contractor Calder Blue. He and Hannah may be wildly attracted to one another, but all he wants is to build the town’s hotly contested new yacht club and mend a centuries-old family feud. Yet thanks to resentments old and new, day after day the pair wind up tangled in each other’s business—and maybe soon in each other’s arms.
I really loved this story and I really loved the characters, but the book moved too slowly. For a light read, it felt like I had to get through chapters and chapters of dialogue before the story progressed. The dialogue was great for character development but slowed down the pace of the story as a whole, which is surprising considering there is a mystery element to the story in addition to the romance.
This was the first book by Kauffman I’ve read, and I would definitely read another book by this author.
