Boardwalk Beginnings is book 1 in the new series The Carmichaels of Cinnamon Bay written by 5 authors of whom I have read numerous books and some new to me authors. Six siblings who’s father made one to many bad investments and lost it all.
Up first is London Carmichael, middle daughter, jet setter, charities volunteer who is now penniless, homeless and has to depend on others which is a bitter pill to swallow.
Jacob Westerly, best friend of Hudson Carmichael, London’s childhood snark partner. Jacob would do anything for this family so... begins a new relationship between London and Jacob on a totally different level than before.
Can these two work together to bring the old spice factory back to life, bring the family together, understand the tension between them and what it means or will the days of old...wealth vs middle class keep them apart? Only time will tell...
