Overview

One photographer who needs money—fast. One movie star with an offer as tempting as his bad boy smile.

Hailey Summer, a photographer who has remortgaged her entire life in order to follow her dreams, needs more time. As the eldest of four girls, her self-appointed job has always been to solve everyone’s problems—including holding onto the family’s historic cottage that’s precious to all of them. But with the cottage about to be seized for back taxes, Hailey’s going to have to confront more than just the family members she’s kept in the dark.

When movie star Finian Alexander closes his eyes he sees is his family’s destitute past and the unfulfilled promises he’s made to others. Only a fraction away from making the A-list food chain and fulfilling his promises, Finian needs help from the paparazzi to push his next “bad boy of Hollywood” escapade into the limelight. Problem is he’s in the Canadian Muskokas and the only photographer he’d consider partnering with slaps him every time he deserves it—which is increasingly often as he becomes more desperate.

Will Hailey and Finian give in to the easy way out of their problems, or will they discover how alike they truly are when they hit the tabloids—together?
This is the first book in the Summer Sisters beach read contemporary romance series.

Jean Oram was raised listening to vinyl in an old school house in the middle of the Canadian prairie. After trekking through six countries and teaching hundreds of people how to ski, she decided it was time to get a ‘real’ career and thus attended university. She wrote for the university's paper as an entertainment reporter where she enjoyed free movies and tickets to hot concerts and events (well, you know... for a small city).

After graduating with distinction and a sociology degree, Jean quickly realized she had aimed herself straight for the fast-paced city life, a desk, nine-to-five, and high heels. Fearful for her sanity as well as the health of her wide feet, she slipped on flats and hid away in a high school library converting teenagers into readers, and enjoying her all-new favorite past time—buying thousands of books with other people’s money. Within years, she began writing her own novels. Champagne and Lemon Drops being her first published novel.

When not writing, Jean likes to camp, hike, read, ski (both downhill and cross-country), and then... do some more writing. She also blogs with other great writers at www.FromTheWriteAngle.com as well as on her site www.jeanoram.com and www.thehelpfulwriter.com.

She lives in Alberta, Canada with her husband, daughter, son, and like many other writers, two cats who fill her laptop fan with cat hair as well as a dog who always needs to go out, and two pet mice who are quite simply, cute.

    Awesome!

    This was an awesome story. I started with the Blueberry Springs series and had to keep reading more by this author. She really knows how to portray her characters. I love the whole bad boy/ good guy struggle the main male character has within himself. At points you never know which one will prevail. Highly recommend.

    'Love and Rumors' (book 1) in the Summer Sisters Series by Jean

    'Love and Rumors' (book 1) in the Summer Sisters Series by Jean Oram is a great story! This is a excellent start to a series! I absolutely loved Hailey and Finian! This story is sweet, funny, romantic and entertaining! Several laugh out loud moments! I can not wait to see what happens with Hailey's sisters in the rest of this series! 'Love and Dreams' (book 2), 'Love and Trust' (book 3) and 'Love and Danger' (book 4) all coming later this year! This is a must read series for all fans of romance, family, small town series.

    An exceptionally well written story that is the start of an adorable new series by Jean Oram. The characters are realistic and lovable with unique interactions. Life is spinning out of control for both Hailey and Finian! They have an instant attraction, but come from two different worlds. Can they work together to save what they each love? A great story by a remarkable author you don't want to miss.
