WHAT HAPPENS IN PARADISE . . .
Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest and most beautiful islands in the Florida Keys - home to sandy white beaches, salt-rimmed margaritas and sizzling romance . . .
When a massive hurricane cuts all power to Little Bridge Island - as well as its connection to the mainland - twenty-five-year-old Bree Beckham isn't worried. She's already escaped one storm - her emotionally abusive ex - so a hurricane seems like a piece of cake.
But animal-loving Bree does become alarmed when she realises how many islanders have been separated from their beloved pets by the hurricane. Now it's up to her to save as many of Little Bridge's animals as she can, but to do so, she's going to need help - help she has no choice but to accept from her boss's sexy nephew, Drew Hartwell, the Mermaid Café's most notorious heartbreaker.
When Bree starts falling for Drew, she has to ask herself if her island fling was just a result of the stormy weather - or if it could last during clear skies too?

This lighthearted romance by Cabot (The Boy Is Back) has dark undertones as its characters grapple with a ferocious hurricane and the aftermath of sexual assault. Feeling betrayed by her mother and boyfriend, who failed to take her trauma seriously, Sabrina Beckham fled New York for Little Bridge Island in the Florida Keys, where her family long ago had happy vacations. Now known as Bree and waitressing at a diner, she has adopted a cat and feels almost like she belongs. She thinks the forecasts for an approaching hurricane are fearmongering and refuses to evacuate, but soon the wind starts howling. She's thrown together with her boss's nephew, handsome carpenter Drew Hartwell, and their chemistry out-sizzles the electricity of the storm. Bree sets out to rescue the abandoned pets on the island, which helps her gain the confidence needed to cope with the past and envision a future with dreamy Drew. Cabot, best known for her Princess Diaries young adult series, shows that her work for adults can be just as frothy and entertaining. Though not especially memorable, this sweet novel will leave readers with a pleasant glow.
