High-powered business executive Layla McCarthy has lost everything, but an abandoned dinner theatre is about to usher in a brand new act in her life.
Layla McCarthy has spent most of her life trying to outrun the wild reputation of the mother who abandoned her. Raised by her grandmother – one of the first female surgeons in Florida – Layla puts all her faith in building a career, only to lose everything. Then, she learns her grandmother and great aunt have bought a run down dinner theatre in her hometown of Shellwater Key, Florida, and Layla returns to make sure her relatives don’t lose their life savings.
Reviving The Paradise brings an unexpected romance with Grayson Kendall, the sexy and enigmatic director brought in to produce the first show. Grayson is coming off a bitter divorce from his very famous ex, and Layla has learned not to trust men at all. The two seemingly have nothing in common, except for sizzling chemistry neither can ignore or deny. But nothing will ever be the same when Layla’s long-lost mother returns, looking to make amends. Can Layla learn to forgive the unforgivable? Can she open up her heart and trust in love? Only if she’s strong enough to take a left turn toward happiness.
