In a screenplay, that pivotal first moment when romantic characters meet is called the “cute meet.” I believe Miss Mauren has newly defined this moment as the charming, innocent, and endearingly unexpected meet. The Tentative Tourist gives us a glimpse into the past—that special and defining moment when Grayson Gregory and Ellery Mayne first meet. Not only do we see Gray’s point of view for the first time, but we see a moment in their history that is only hinted at in book one, “In the Spotlight.” Mauren’s charm is in her ability to take the smallest gestures and actions and turn them into, not only pivotal, but endearing moments for the reader to cherish. She deftly adds real-to-life details that let you dissolve right into the story and exist with the characters—a rare, and true talent. If you’re a Mayne Attraction, this read is a must. If you’re new to Miss Mauren’s stories, this short story will give you a taste of her wit and charm, which exists in every story she publishes.

I loved getting to see some of the back story of the characters! Her portrayal of the characters drew me in just as the other books and short stories did! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to read it!

This is a prequel to "In the Spotlight". It gives us an opportunity to see how Ellery and Gray first met, from Gray's point of view. This also gives a little more insight into Gray and why he does some of the things he does in "Spotlight". He definitely is being controlled by his dad more than he wants to admit.

Ann Mauren had once again entranced me with "Tentative Tourist". While the story is brief, it gives the reader an excellent idea of Grayson Gregory's mind, who plays an important role in the rest of the series. I loved "Tentative Tourist" because of when it takes place. Definitely worth a read if you have already read "In the Spotlight", and still a must read if you haven't!
