On the verge of turning forty and having just lost her job, Marianna Gregory flees Mirabelle Harbor for the summer with little more than a suitcase, her beat-up car, and the blessings of her good friend Olivia Michaelsen. Her ex-husband is living a new life in California. Her college-aged daughter is spending her vacation with her boyfriend in Michigan. And the house Marianna once called her own finally sold, so she has nowhere to live in Illinois now anyway.
However, her wealthy sister Ellen owns an empty bungalow on the beach in Sarasota, Florida, so Marianna turns to the sea for a chance to go shelling, regroup, and figure out what to do with this new chapter in her life. She doesn't bargain on having to face down several family crises while she's away, nor does she count on meeting a handsome beachcomber who bears a striking resemblance to Elvis. Just as surprising is the craft project she gets roped into volunteering for and the new group of friends who might just change the way she views the world and her future.
The most unexpected gifts can be found where the land meets the sea. STRANGER ON THE SHORE, a Mirabelle Harbor story.

I am a little biased when it comes to book 4, it is basically taking place in my backyard the sunny beaches of Sarasota, Florida. It takes a brave lady to pack up everything and move on to a new city, new place, and begin new dreams, and hopefully new love. And that is exactly what Marianna does, and what better place to do it, then beautiful beaches of Florida (I love my home state) While its hard to leave Mirabelle Harbor and all her friends there Marianna knows it time to move on, and it sucks to leave the wonderful Michaelsen family Marianna knows its time. Once she gets to Florida she meets Gil who happens to look like Elvis (my mil would have loved this book, huge Elvis fan) sparks fly, can you imagine falling in love with someone who looks like Elvis?? Being an "older" romance reader (in my 40's) it's wonderful to have a series that the characters are in my age range, and I can read a series that's not full of BDSM and other sexual content. I have enjoyed every book so far, and I am looking forward to what's to come next, I am waiting for the man that thinks he is brave enough to tame Olivia, lol enjoy the book.
