And I thought
And now I need to read the 1st one.
After reading Cy and Piper's story in Sailing in Style.
First let me say I loved the book and I seriously want to read book 1.
I was left really interested in all the characters.
And in the end I was curious how the story was developed in book 1.
Pelican Inn was the setting of book 1 and is where Cy's father and his new wife Bitty reside.
Book 2 takes up shortly after the romance of Cy's sister Rosa who is introduced in Return To Pelican Bay.
Rosa's wedding reception is held on board a Paddle Boat which is picture on the cover.
The story revolves around the renovation of the Ball Room after a flood which well . . .
The main character the dashing and handsome kind of beachy surfer type happened to be responsible for.
All because he saw a vision (or so he thought/wished) of his ex Piper who happened to be performing on board the paddleboat.
The plot was solid and fun with some history of the Paddle Boat. Some mystery when someone on board has sticky fingers. And btw there are several suspects which just might include Piper's Uncle.
And then of course there is Cy and Piper's romance.
The two have lots of hurtles to get passesd as they each deal with family drama they let drive them.
And thier own pasts that just might keep them from having a Happily Ever After.
As I turned the last pages I was sad to leave the story and this short series behind.
I wonder if authors ever revisit thier characters years later.
As readers we can only hope.
I was lucky enough to win my copy in a Giveaway.
I was not asked to write a review.
What the book is about
Danger: Heartbreak ahead!
Piper Brindle has spent her entire adult life trying to live down the stigma of her family's checkered history. The one bright spot was Cy Franco, the talented California designer with the surfer-boy looks. She ended up only breaking his heart. Now an acting gig on the historic River King reunites her with the guy she pushed away. She knows she doesn't deserve him, but how can she pretend she's immune to Cy's charms? As her past explodes into her present, Piper knows they can never have a future together. But with their irresistible chemistry drawing them even closer than before, how will she be able to walk away a second time?
And about book 1 . . .
Her design scheme didn't include him!
