Overview

“I love this story.”—Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

In the tender, heartwarming tradition of Nicholas Sparks, this compelling novel of two strangers in a small coastal town marks a romantic tour de force for internationally bestselling author Davis Bunn.

He had not come all this way just to break another woman’s heart.

When Connor Larkin boards a late night bus in downtown LA, he’s not sure where he’s going or what he’s looking for. Putting his acting career—and his fiancée —on hold, he’s searching for something he can’t define, a part of himself he lost on the road to success. Once he dreamed of being a singer in the classic style of Sinatra and Bennett. But his lean good looks soon landed him in movies as the sexy “bad guy”—and in the arms of a famous young heiress. Now, with his wedding day approaching, Connor finds himself stepping into the sleepy seaside town of Miramar Bay—where one remarkable woman inspires him to rethink all of his choices…

She needed to know his secrets, and to see if he’d tell her the truth.

Sylvie Cassick is nothing like the pretentious starlets back in Hollywood. The daughter of a nomadic painter, she’s had to work hard for everything—unlike Connor’s fiancée. When Connor hears familiar music drifting out of Sylvie’s restaurant, he feels as if he’s finally come home. Sylvie isn’t sure what to think when this impossibly handsome stranger applies for a waiter’s job. Yet once he serenades her customers—and slowly works his way into her heart—she realizes there’s more to him than he’s letting on. And Connor realizes he’s found his destiny. But as the outside world encroaches, threatening their fragile bond, Connor will have to risk losing everything to gain the life he longs for, and be the man Sylvie deserves.

Filled with bittersweet longing, Miramar Bay is an unforgettable journey through doubt and desire—to the truth that can be discovered along the road less taken.

Bunn lures readers to the idyllic locale of Miramar Bay, a quiet town along California's coast. Handsome actor Connor Larkin has grown tired of the Hollywood lifestyle and quietly slips out of Los Angeles on a Greyhound bus to Miramar Bay, a place that brings back fond memories for him. After arriving, he finds Castaways, a restaurant that reminds him of his youth. Connor meets the owner, Sylvie Cassick, a beautiful woman who seems to be haunted by her own demons. In a spur-of-the-moment decision, he asks her for a job and feels fortunate that she doesn't recognize him. Neither is she aware of his highly publicized upcoming wedding to Kali Lyndon—a wedding that he plans not to attend. When Connor develops feelings not only for Sylvie but for the town and its engaging residents, he knows that he needs to confess his true identity. Bunn has excelled in creating a deeply emotional read that will resonate with readers. (Apr.)
