“A sizzling combination of heat and heart.” Barbara Freethy, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Two childhood friends meet again and everything changes…
She wants to trust him.
He wants to tell all his secrets.
But he has a ticket out of town and they both have hearts to protect.
“I have fallen in love with these characters.” Amazon reviewer
Photojournalist and die-hard wanderer Gage Lowell plans a little R & R in Crescent Cove, the place of idyllic childhood summers. Beach House No. 9 seems like a great place to relax after his latest harrowing adventure and he plans to surprise old friend and current pen pal, Skye Alexander, who manages the beachside properties. Though the last time they’d met in person they’d been kids, her communications over the years have kept him in touch…and sometimes saved him from his dark demons. But upon arrival, Skye doesn’t seem all that happy to make his re-acquaintance…
Skye knows it’s nuts not to be eager to spend time with the hard-bodied, ultra-sexy Gage. But it’s clear he sees her as just a friend and she might be thinking of him in a little more…uh, intimate terms. And then there’s the subject of secrets. Clearly he’s holding one back and she has them of her own. But the way he smiles at her…then the way he kisses her…can she open herself up to him in order to discover just how close to Paradise the two of them might come?

Truly is Paradise
Christie Ridgway has once again written a beautiful story set in a wonderful and familiar setting if you have read the series. I love that these books hold romance and intrigue. Skye and Gage were pen pals while Gage was on a photo assignment in a danger zone. Gage has had a difficult experience and goes to the cove to recover. Skye has had her own difficulties. Can they help each other or are they only good through pen and paper? l loved this story and hope you will too.
