For anyone who loves the coast
Callie Duflay is at odds with just about everyone--except her reluctantly adopted hound, Moondoggy. But that doesn't stop her from diving into the next cause to come along: the proposed development of her beloved open space along the California Coast. As the elected leader of the opposition, Callie tries to balance her extended family, work at a youth camp, and a persistent news reporter, but it seems nothing has prepared her for falling in love with the object of her objection: the developer's architect, Gage Mitchell.
An engaging read for any time of the year, but especially great while sitting on the beach.

Follow-up to Sweet Waters is perfect beachy romance
A Shore Thing by Julie Carobini is an Otter Bay novel following up to Sweet Waters. Callie Duflay has earned a reputation as always fighting for some cause or another. Her family is frustrated by her refusal to settle down and live a normal life instead of working as assistant camp director at a local Christian camp. When she discovers that a section of beautiful shore land is going to be developed into condominiums, she starts a protest group to stop the destruction to the beautiful natural area, but she finds that she may have jumped the gun when she talks to the owner and finds out the truth behind the property's sale. Throw in handsome Gage Mitchell, the architect for the project who creates sparks with Callie every time they meet, and you have a recipe for star-crossed romance. Gage is a likable hero with strong faith and the desire to build green buildings, but he seems to throw back his head and laugh a lot. Callie's desire to do right leads her into plenty of trouble, but she has to learn to accept that God's will may not be what she wants. Gage and Callie are a natural couple, but at times the story seemed a bit stilted, with a bit too much of heads being thrown back in laughter. It's still a sweet romantic read perfect for the beach.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
