    Be sure to tote this volume along on your vacation.In “June’s Lace”,Cathy Lamb introduces us to former attorney/wedding dress designer;June MacKenzie, who,after continually battling with her slime-ball of a husband;Grayson for a divorce, swears she will never get involved with any male again—that is,until a blond, hunky giant of a songwriter named Reece rescues her from drowning. He seems kind & understanding, but June has her doubts about him as well as herself. Meanwhile, her talented staff; Estelle & Leoni & Leoni’s Daughter; Morgan, encourage her to follow her heart. But will Grayson ever give up & agree to the divorce? Or will she lose everything, including the creative, loving woman she is? Within the pages of Holly Chamberlin’s “Second Chance Sweethearts”, you’ll meet Thea Foss, who, escapes her familiar surroundings & her abusive former Husband; Mark Marais,& takes up residence in Ogunquit, Maine. Thea rents from the intuitive but lonely, Alice Moore & secures a job as a waitress in Maggie’s Diner. Despite ever-present fears, her life begins to take some order—that is, until the “Love of her Life” from years past; Hugh Landry, arrives on the scene. Will he remember all that they once shared? Will he be disappointed by the woman she has become? Or she with him? With “Carolina Summer”, Rosalind Noonan transports you to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We accompany Realtor,Jane Doyle,as she hurriedly leaves Manhattan w/ a plan to stay with her Brother; T.J. in Florida. With her thoughts distracted while trying to drive in a torrential downpour, Jane is involved in a collision near Avon. Thoroughly shaken but unhurt, she thinks that someone has tried to kill her. Confronted by handsome Sheriff Cooper Locklear & assisted to safety with Quickstop Market owners;Leah and Rusty Mallory, she regains her composure, only to find out her SUV is in need of repair & she must find lodging.Jane and Cooper keep meeting & getting better acquainted. But he must not find out the real reason for her hasty Southern trip. When a phone call persuades Jane to discontinue her travel plans, she fears for her safety & works her way into a rental cleaning job for a Realtor,keeping a low profile. What or who is she running from? Will Jane find sanctuary in Avon? You will enjoy reading Lisa Jackson’s pre-released tale; “The Brass Ring”..

Prior to the rehearsal dinner the two lovebirds relax & go to a local fair complete w/ a carousel & Parker grabs the brass ring. They find a fortune teller’s tent & Shawna has her palm read.

    Beach Season by Lisa Jackson and 3 others June's Lace by Cathy L

    Beach Season by Lisa Jackson and 3 others
    June's Lace by Cathy Lamb
    June is going through a divorce but he wants half of her new wedding dress business. She is so distraught she heads down to the beach and she turns her back on a wave. It's raining and she falls under and an arm stretches to reach her. Reece is only renting a house for 8 weeks and he sees to it that she goes to get checked out at the hospital.
    They have a survivors lunch for a few dates and she finds out he is staying right next door to her house. She has to sell that and give half to Grayson or he wants 1/2 of the business.
    June concentrates on her sisters: August and September, they each keep a journal of things to worry about and compare them with each other.
    Love reading about her design work and the process she uses. She is taken aback of what Reece does for a living and he's very sensitive when she tells him about her life, marriage and now the divorce and he feels like she's been let down for too long.
    He just uses simple things to get to her: flowers, french toast on the deck one night for dinner, finding her the perfect unbroken butterfly shell.
    Love also that this is located in Oregon as we have visited there a few times on our trek out west, so beautiful.
    Such devotion to family, traditions and legends and what they symbolize.
    .
    Second Chance Sweethearts by Holly Chamberlin
    Thea Foss, divorced has left and traveled to a resort town near Wells, Maine, rents an apartment for several months and loses herself in the town activities.
    As a waitress to keep busy she's run into her old college boyfriend, Hugh Landry and they share several meals together and have other dates and just remember their whole lives together.
    She talks to her landlady Alice when she shows up with fresh baked goodies.
    After their long talks they figure out why they had split up before-who had caused it and each is forgiving and they fell they still have enough time in their lives to try it again.
    What's to say the people who split them up before just won't do it again... but something else stands in their way.
    Love the locale of the lighthouses, blueberry picking, beaches, just walking around parks
    .
    Carolina Summer by Rosamind Noonan
    Jane Doyle has left the city on her way south to visit with her brother in FL. She's made it past Virginia and he's talked her into heading to the outer banks in NC where he has a friend that runs the hotel.
    She's within an hour there and the rain downpour starts and she gets rear ended. The local sheriff is able to talk her out of the jeep that she's rented. She finds out her brother, TJ, his friend has relocated to Myrtle Beach.
    The doctor and others talk her into staying at the local motel for the night, she walks around a bit and in the morning will say goodbye to them all on her way further south.
    Problem is somebody is looking for her and has contacted her brother so she has to go into hiding. She rents a place and the sheriff is her landlord and she's happy that she will have protection so close by.
    She opens up to Cooper and he tells her of his past.
    Love this book because of the location, never been and have always wanted to after reading Nights in Rodanthe.
    New thing for me is the windsurfing lessons.
    .
    The Brass Ring by Lisa Jackson
    Parker Harrison is about to be married to the girl of his dreams. Night before they are at a carnival and he gets the brass ring while on the ride, also a fortune teller states that Shawna will lose him.
    The day of the wedding and it's just about time when her brother, Jake comes in stating there had been an accident the night before. Parker had left to drive Brad home. Parker was the tennis coach for Brad.
    Shawna McGuire has everything planned. Not only medical problems but other people.
    Love this story for the location of Portland, Oregon.

    Reviewed by Lynn F. for Readers Favorite "Beach Season&quo

    Reviewed by Lynn F. for Readers Favorite

    "Beach Season" is a novella written by 4 different authors. They will take you on a journey of old flames renewed, new romances found, suspense, and a better outlook for the future. Three of the stories are new while the last one, 'The Brass Ring' is a reprint. From the Oregon coast to Maine, New York, and the outer banks of North Carolina, we meet 4 women who in all respect are carrying excess baggage that they need to let go of. June is trying to finalize a divorce while her ex husband will not let go. He doesn’t want her, but he sure wants her money in 'Junes Lace' while Thea is trying to leave her old life behind and escape from her ex while meeting up with her old high school flame in 'Second Chance Sweethearts'. In 'Carolina Summer' Jane leaves New York for the summer trying to get away from a killer but she soon finds herself being stalked. 'The Brass Ring' shows us that all the plans in the world can soon be interrupted by a single car accident as Shawna soon learns on her wedding day.

    I feel all the authors, Lisa Jackson, Holly Chamberlain, Cathy Lamb and Rosalind Noonan, have brought a wonderful assortment of characters to this novella. They are all excellent reading and so short that one could finish a story in an evening. They are all good but I think, as far as suspense goes, my favorite was 'Carolina Summer' while 'Second Chance' comes a close second. There are sexual encounters mentioned in each story but there is nothing erotic and nothing more than other romance books of this nature seem to have. One finds that there is always a new beginning just around the corner if one looks close enough. I feel that all of you will find this an enjoyable read.
