Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Jamie Newman flees the stress of New York for a summer in Seaside Cove, N.C., to recharge her spirit and re-evaluate her life. After years of being the family caretaker and managing their restaurant, she's finally putting herself first. Unfortunately, family drama follows her to her retreat and soon the ramshackle bungalow is bursting at the seams with people wanting Jamie to fix their problems, while Jamie is distractingly attracted to her sexy and mysterious landlord, Nick Trent. A summer fling will let Nick hide his past and Jamie eventually return to Manhattan—what could possibly go wrong? Bestseller D'Alessandro (Tempted at Midnight) has a light and humorous touch, and there's plenty of romantic tension and snappy dialogue to keep readers enthralled. Likable characters and steamy situations make this a sensuous winner. (May)

This is my first D'Alessandro book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, it annoyed me to have to put it down for such things as making dinner, answering whoever was calling, etc. I thought the characters had the normal flaws and some were annoying enough to resemble people and relatives I know!

After her half-sister Laurel steals her boyfriend, upset and humiliated Jamie Newman leaves New York to spend the summer at a nice cottage on Seaside Cove, North Carolina away from her dependent family. There she plans to renew her batteries and look at where her life is going starting with ridding herself of her drama queen mom, Laurel and her niece as well as managing the family restaurant. However, her pleasant bungalow turns out to be a dump. Worse the horde she left in New York followed her to the barrier island as the three females plead with Jamie to rectify their issues. Meanwhile Jamie is attracted to her annoying cottage landlord Nick Trent. He wants a summer fling with his renter who will return to New York so he can hide his past from the woman he desires. This is an amusing contemporary romance due to a strong cast. The lead couple is a nice pairing who brings an engaging romantic subplot with a touch of intrigue re his secret to the mix. However, her family of Three Stoogettes provides an eccentric jocularity yet also contains a serious theme that focuses on the emotional dependency of the trio on the problem fixer who is a codependent with her need to be needed. This is a wonderful family drama. Harriet Klausner
