Overview

Casey never had a really serious relationship; while Nicolette just got out of a bad one.

Nicolette Marchand relocated to South Florida to get away from an abusive lover. In her new home, she loves the sun, the beaches and the bookshop owner with the hazel eyes and beautiful smile. Spending her evenings in her home away from home, life was really good. At least, until the phone started ringing.

Casey Addison, bookshop owner, was a native of South Florida. She never really cared about anything or anyone other than her store before now. A chance encounter with a fellow book lover changed all that. She thoroughly enjoys the company of her bookshop's new fixture. Unfortunately, someone is threatening her new found happiness and Casey gets caught in the middle.

Helping each other, will these two women discover a love they never knew they needed? And can Nicolette open herself up and trust that together, they are both…

Smiling at the people she passed, most of them eyeing her suspiciously, she said a quick hello to the ones who smiled back.

She had liked that town but certain circumstances had necessitated her departure and her employer, Hastings Conglomerate, had granted her relocation request.

Crossing 85th Street, she made her way along the sidewalk. She glanced into the various storefronts she passed, admiring the many knick-knacks on display. But the fifth store on her stroll elicited more than a brief glance. Unable to resist, she couldn’t pass by the little bookshop.

She loved books, enjoyed reading every chance she got. As a matter of fact, her tote currently had three books stashed in it...just in case. The bookshop advertised the sale of new and used books, spanning all genres.

Entering the store, she smiled at the little tinkling bell going off above her head. The bookshop carried the scent of books and coffee. And even with the musky used book smell, the aromas were tantalising and inviting.

Strategically arranged near the front of the store were four large lounge chairs. The soft chocolate-brown chairs added to the inviting d
