Jaxie Parker works for one of the best ad agencies in Atlanta and and thrives in the upscale fast lane. She loves everything about the big city including her power-packed days and party-filled nights. But life as she knows it comes to a screetching halt when the boss puts her in charge of the firm’s annual pro bono project, which is to revitalize a small town. Unfortunately, Rumton, South Carolina doesn’t have a mall or nightclub, much less a nail salon. For that matter, there’s no hotel, either. Jaxie ends up rooming with an old man in an even older house that he shares with a dog and a thieving raccoon.
Just when Jaxie thinks that she’s landed in a dreadfully uneventful place, things heat up pretty fast. There’s much more to Rumton than meets the eye. Sexy men. A sinister plot to steal from the town. A raging wind storm. Quirky townspeople. And loads of astonishing pirate history. It all adds up to some major Carolina booty!

I would give this book a ten star plus rating if I could. From first chapter to last, it was a do not put down until I finished book. Loved the characters. They had flesh and depth to them. By the last page, I knew them all personally and hated saying good bye to them. This author has created one of the best reads I’ve had in months and I read a book a week. Will be reading every book I can find by this author. Thank you so very much for a great read.
Funny and fast moving
Shows off the eccentricities of small town characters, as seen thru the eyes of ad exec Jaxie Parker. The pirate lore is believable, and ties the whole story together. Truly fun to read!
