Smile for Me by Jan Thompson
She is laid back.
He is uptight.
Never the twain shall...kiss?
A deadline-driven workaholic assistant school principal who meticulously plans his schedule months in advance meets an easygoing art teacher and studio potter with no sense of time, living her life as the seasons come and go. When they cross paths again at the Summer by the Sea Day Camp sponsored by his church in Nassau, Bahamas, how can they get along if they cannot see eye to eye?
From USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson comes SMILE FOR ME, book 1 in the Vacation Sweethearts collection of wholesome, sweet and inspirational Christian romance novels set in some of Jan's favorite vacation places around the world.
A spin-off of Jan's Savannah Sweethearts series, these Vacation Sweethearts novels begin with SMILE FOR ME, Byron and Tina and their summer romance in the Bahamas.
Tina MacFarland is laid back...
"Come to the Bahamas, they said. It will be fun, they said. Well, arriving in Nassau, I feel I could be okay if Byron's not around. I made it! I'm here! That's good enough for me, but apparently it's not good enough for Mr. Uptight. Why does he bother me so? I don't need his approval--Oh yes, I do. As a volunteer art teacher at the day camp, I have to answer to Byron for four weeks. Well, thank God it's only for four weeks. And then I'm outta here, and he'll be out of my hair. Surely I can last through day camp. What could possibly go wrong in a month? Nothing I can think of..."
--Tina MacFarland, Potter, Ceramic Artist, Art Teacher, Volunteer at the Summer by the Sea Day Camp in the Bahamas
Byron Moss is uptight...
"This is what I've always wanted, right? Then why does this assistant headmaster position hem me in? I feel constricted, restricted, afflicted. I fear I have taken a wrong turn in my career. What is God's will for my life? And what does Tina think about--Tina? What does she have anything to do with my career decisions?"
--Byron Moss, Assistant Headmaster, Chapel by the Sea Christian School in the Bahamas
Never the twain shall...kiss?
Ah, Byron and Tina. How would they navigate the super-conservative work environment where office romance is frowned upon? Can they change the old rules? Or will the old rules change them? Let's find out in the Caribbean, where the waters are blue, skies are pretty, and hearts are warm...
