    I've come to expect a fun, romantic read whenever I pick up a book by Sandie Bricker, and Love Finds
    You in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California was no exception. Bricker has a way with dialogue that reflects
    her past experience in Hollywood. Always sharp and clever, with a splash of passion. Her heroine has
    believable reasons for the conflict she injects into her life, and her hero is all man, but believably so.
    I've never read a Bricker romance that wouldn't look great on the big screen. Recommended for teens
    through romance-loving adult!

    Wonderful read!

    This is one of those "good books" you can curl up with on a lazy day. I enjoyed it from cover to cover, but the suspense wasn't so intense that my heart thumped and I gripped the book's covers with sweaty palms.
    Carmel by the Sea allowed me to enjoy it slowly, chewing and enjoying each morsel of character and setting. Annie wants to make a difference with her life. Every time something happens in her job as a private investigator, though, you wonder what kind of mess she's getting herself into.
    She also hopes for a family and a home, but finding the love of her life is almost as elusive as the solution to some of the cases on which she works.
    Annie finds herself tangled in ambition, hesitation, uncertainty, empathy, compassion and jealousy, and often appears a mixed-up person. But way back, someone had an impact on Annie and she hasn't dealt with it emotionally. Iit seems none of her romantic relationships work.
    Sandra Bricker is a good story teller. Carmel by the Sea isn't as humorous as "Always the Baker-Never the Bride," but Carmel by the Sea is a good read.
    This novel is enhanced by the characters' addictions to old movies, and the little tidbits, dialogue, etc., that come from legendary actors and their films.
    I enjoyed it.

    Romance - humor - action - it's got it all!

    Sandra Bricker has done it again - weaving fact, fiction and humor in a delightful manner, this time with her playwriting skills. I'm a stage buff myself, and truly felt I was 'watching' the action unfold, and thinking what a charming movie this would make. The conflict, personal struggles, and romance of the characters get resolved but not without pain - or laughter.

    Beautiful Story

    After Annie Gray loses her boring job in Monterey, she moves into her Grandmother's attic bedroom in Carmel by-the-Sea, California. Encouraged by her grandmother, a film star of yesteryears, Annie makes a list of what she needs to do: get a new fun and exciting job, followed by great (Jennifer Anniston) hair, move back to Monterey, smile more, and get a real boyfriend. She lands the exciting job-in a private investigator's office. She begins to doubt the wisdom of the remainder of her list when she meets her boss's assistant, a Monterey cop and wonders why she would want to leave Carmel-precisely what her grandmother and best friend have told her. Another cast of memorable characters, great plot and sprinkles of humor from Bricker. I would love to visit her Carmel by-the-sea, California for real.
