Her Picture-Perfect Family by Linda Barrett
Some say it's magic, some say it's love. Others credit the sea, sun and sand as the healing power behind Sea View House. Does the truth really matter for the temporary residents of this special place? In the coastal town of Pilgrim Cove, strangers are welcomed, and everyone else takes a front row seat as a love story unfolds.
The Sea View House series continues with Her Picture-Perfect Family (Bk. 2):
Kindergarten teacher Joy MacKenzie trusts everyone and loves her life in Pilgrim Cove. Hidden beneath her outgoing veneer, however, Joy knows true happiness will never be hers. She is unable to have children of her own. Her dreams of marriage and family are over.
Once a foster child, photojournalist Logan Nash is back in the states after embedding with U.S. troops. A loner by choice, he trusts no one, not even himself, as he tries to become a dad to his newly adopted war dog, Ajax.
Needing a place with privacy, Logan rents the big house on the beach. Except he wasn't expecting an upstairs neighbor.
Logan is left with little choice but to deal with exuberant Joy who creates havoc in his carefully ordered world. Joy will do almost anything to unlock Logan's secrets and reveal the caring person behind the solitary man.
The magic of Sea View House draws them together, but only by letting go of the past can they truly find a new beginning.
