A Barefoot Bay Novel

When running is all you've ever known . . .

Caught between fight and flight, Zoe Tamarin has always picked flight. Since she was rescued from a nightmare childhood by her great-aunt Pasha, they've been on the move, never staying in one place long enough to risk exposing their precarious past. But now that they've reached the sun-baked shores of Barefoot Bay, Zoe may have to stay and fight-for her aunt's life . . . and for a love she ran from years before.

Sometimes the bravest act of all is to stand still.

Oliver Bradbury came to Florida to start over, as both a doctor and a father to his eight-year-old son. He never expected life to hand him a second chance with the woman he lost years ago-but one look at Zoe Tamarin and he knows he'll do whatever it takes to prove that this time, he can be the man she needs. But when demands of family and friendship threaten to shatter their rekindled passion, Oliver must heal Zoe's lifelong wounds with more than hot kisses . . . but will that be enough to keep her from flying off with his heart?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this fun and engaging third installment of the Barefoot Bay contemporary quartet (after Barefoot in the Rain), an upright, forthright oncologist and a frightened woman in hiding get a second chance at love. Zoe Tamarin has spent her whole life running, guided by her “great-aunt” Pasha, a neighbor who rescued Zoe from her abusive childhood home. They settled briefly in Illinois, where Zoe revealed everything to her beloved, Dr. Oliver Bradbury. But when he reacted badly, she ran from him too. Nine years later, in Barefoot Bay, Fla., Zoe seeks out Oliver again because Pasha needs his medical help, and they realize the chemistry and love they once shared is as strong as ever. While Zoe’s friends and Oliver try to convince her that planting roots will finally make her happy, the voice in her head still whispers, “Run, Zoe, run”—especially when Pasha’s hidden history comes to light. The plot is somewhat farfetched, but readers will appreciate the resilient heroine and her journey. (May)
