About the book
A storm’s brewing over the beach town of Hyacinth Bay—and lives are on the line.
Kristy Reed always loved to visit her grandmother’s beach house as a child. Now, a divorcee of 43, she has inherited the house after her grandmother’s passing. It helps that she’s now close to Abigail, the sixteen-year-old daughter of Kristy’s best friend, June Davenport, who disappeared ten years ago. If only she didn’t have to face Abigail’s uncle, who Kristy once thought she would marry…
Shane Davenport never thought he would still be living in Hyacinth Bay at the age of 45. After June’s disappearance, Shane set aside his dreams to help raise Abigail, since his brother, Gerald, was too busy with work. He loves her like she’s his own daughter, but he tiptoes around Gerald, knowing his brother will cut off communication if he gets angry enough…
When Abigail and Gerald are presumed dead after being lost in a storm, Shane and Kristy join forces to find them—reigniting the spark between them that never truly died. But as they uncover more and more secrets, will their growing attraction save them… or will it put their lives in greater danger?
This beachside mystery romance is a beautifully crafted adventure of love, family, and mystery that will keep you curious and wanting more. If you enjoy contemporary women’s fiction and clean romance, this series is a must-read for you!
This is Book 1 of 6 in A Hyacinth Bay Mystery Romance Series.
And I thought
This could be a really great read.
There are great bones. Great characters. A suspenseful story.
But . . .
I had no clue this was a short story that would end in a cliffhanger.
With no questions answered.
I enjoy series.
I enjoy stories that build from book 1 to 2 and so on.
I do not like Novellas. I do not like covers that do not tell you this is a novella. Or short story.
More than likely I will probably not read the rest of this series unless I find a really good deal.
And that is sad because I think the author has a great story.
I would love to see if my suspicion that Gerald really isn't dead is right.
I received a complimentary copy from the author.
My review will appear on Amazon Good Reads.
