Overview

Can a summer of love make up for a lifetime of secrets?

Wedding fever has taken over Harmony Harbor this summer, and the local matchmakers have set their sights on Theia Lawson, a former navy pilot who's in town for a stay at Greystone Manor. And while Theia's got her reasons to put this small town behind her as fast as she can, there's a certain tall, dark, and irresistible man that she can't seem to get off her mind.

Firefighter Marco DiRossi wants to beat the matchmakers at their own game so he conspires with Theia to pretend they've already fallen in love. It's only for the summer. What could go wrong? Yet as the beach season draws to a close, Marco and Theia find their pretend relationship has led to very real attraction. But when a secret from the past is revealed, jeopardizing everything they hold dear, can this unlikely couple find their way to a happily-ever-after?

With it's beach locale, warm-hearted story line, and welcoming characters Barefoot Beach is destined to make a perfect addition to your summer reading list! From the very first chapter I found myself smitten with it's wonderful cast of characters, and delighted by their matchmaking antics, they had me giggling more than a few times. There was also a bit of family drama and emotion mixed in here and there that put a nice little squeeze on my heart too. I really enjoyed this one, definitely one of my favorite additions to the Harmony Harbor series,it kept me thoroughly entertained from start to finish! Highly recommend. I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

Do you ever have one of those series that you somehow just forget how good the books are until you start the next one? Harmony Harbor was like that for me. It's like an "oh, yeah!" moment. I knew in the first couple of pages that I was really going to enjoy this book. When the male character repeatedly knocks the heroine on her butt with a fire hose, you know you're in for a fun ride! Theia was a really strong heroine. An ex-navy pilot, now a private pilot, she sure doesn't want to be thrown over some overgrown fireman's shoulder butt up. I did love how Marco just did what needed to be done and didn't listen to her protests. There is a ghostly grandmother and an unusually competent cat in this book, but they just add to the delightful story of a woman finding family and love all at one time. Wonderful! I won a copy of this book from the author. All thoughts are my own.

What a perfect summer time read! This was entertaining enough to keep the pages turning, but also light enough to be able to kick back, relax, and just enjoy a good story. I truly enjoyed watching Theia and Marco's story unfold. Theia was a strong female lead, which I can always appreciate, and it was also nice to see a major hunk like Marco with a soft side. And hello--a man who not only loves to cook, but cooks well? Sign me up! I also really enjoyed all of the antics that go with getting a large family together. It felt realistic and added an extra element of depth to the story so that the whole story didn't just revolve around Marco and Theia. My only complaint here doesn't even really have to do with the book. I've never read any of the Harmony Harbor books before, and while for the most part, this works fine as a standalone, I still think I would have liked to know more of the family history. Again, this is no fault of the book, just more of an FYI for readers. All in all, if you're looking for a page-turning read to take to the beach with a set of characters you can't help but grow attached to, I'd highly recommend looking for Barefoot Beach when it releases on June 4th!

Barefoot Beach is Debbie Mason’s latest (last?) Harmony Harbor novel. The final secrets of Harmony Harbor are reveled and the fate of the manor settled. Along the way we watch Marco and Theia get their own HEA. This is one of my favorite series and I’m sad to see it ending, but I can’t wait to see where Mason goes next…I know I will be following. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Debbie Mason is a new author to me. I didn’t realize that this was book 8 in the series and although it can be read as a stand alone it may be beneficial to read the previous books in the series as I think it will make the read more enjoyable. It appears that the people of Harmony Harbor have decided that Theia Lawson should be next to find happiness. Marco DiRossi is a firefighter and he is determined to best the nosy matchmakers at their own game so he enlists Theia to pretend they have fallen in love. After all it’s only for the summer, what could go wrong? As their pretend relationship slowly morphs into more, will they take a chance? Secrets have a way of surfacing and Theia has many. What will happen to the blossoming relationship when they are revealed? Will Marco get over his initial reaction and decide that Theia is worth the risk or are they destined to be alone forever?

Theia is back in Harmony Harbor and her boss is the one that has her stuck there for at least a month. Thanks to some rowdy twins on her flight and a fireman who thinks he saved her she has to wait for her plane to be fixed. What's a girl to do? She can't wait to leave and hates what she has agreed to do for her boss but her past just won't let her go. She feels she must right wrongs and needs the money to accomplish that so she is stuck in a town she doesn't want to be in spying on people that she likes. Meanwhile fire fighter Marco is dealing with his own issues. He has women in his life that think she should be married by now and they are eager to set him up with some new arrivals. He's not ready to get married and knows that his Mrs. Right hasn't come along yet. It doesn't help that the women they are trying to set him up with are sisters and they don't mind fighting over him. Marco decides to ask Theia if she will help him and pretend to be his new girlfriend. She agrees and doesn't see the harm in pretending until things start to feel and seem real. She isn't sure what she wants to do though, she has never been good with relationships and doesn't quite know how to deal with her feelings. When a secret emerges about Theia Marco sees her in a different light and doesn't want anything more to do with her. Theia hurt and confused thinks it's time for her to leave town and try to move on with her life. Follow along as Theia and Marco not only deal with the feelings they have for each other but the secrets that can't remain hidden anymore. Will true love win in the end or are these two destined to be alone forever. I love this series and the wonderful detail the author puts into every word. The characters are fun and easy to get to know, you'll be rooting for love when it comes to each of them. The plot lines are put together in a way that takes you right into the story and doesn't let you out until the end. I can't wait for each new book and always look forward to what she has to offer in her writing!!!

Barefoot Beach was a fun read with several twists that kept things interesting, and I enjoyed the touch of paranormal that was added with Colleen's character. I voluntarily read and reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.

Nobody can get under my skin, quite like Debbie Mason. Her appeal is more subtle, but no less powerful. Barefoot Beach takes the long route to a heart. Theia is in need of some tough love, but what she gets is a good does of matchmaking from the town locals. Marco has a plan that could blow up in their faces or run away with their hearts. Mason turns summer lovin' into captivating reading that tempts the body and touches the heart.
