If he finds out who she is, all bets are off.
Aspiring filmmaker Izzy Gordon just wants her big break – and a film about an old resort with a scandalous gangster history is sure to do it. There’s just one snag – her family wants to sell the property to developers, and the resort owners are fighting to stop them. If Izzy wants to get this film made, no one can ever know who she really is.
Gib Murphy, globe-trotting photojournalist, is home recovering from a deadly war assignment that left him injured and broken. He just wants some peace. Bad enough that he’s been drafted into helping his grandparents battle to save their resort, but now, a filmmaker is digging into old family secrets.
Even worse, he’s falling for her and the feeling is mutual. But with everything Izzy and Gib are hiding, will they miss their chance for happily-ever-after?

Was going ok until the order slipped
The plot is ok interesting premise, characters are a little thin, but fairly normal for a short romance. However I got tripped up when the chapter went out of order. It’s really a minor technical flaw in editing, but destroys the flow, and makes me doubt the rest of the story.
Sweet love story
Love on the Lane really kicked off this new series with a bang! I loved that Gib is a damaged hero and that Izzy helps him find his way. It was an incredibly touching love story with moments of humor and sweetness that made it all the better. I could totally relate to the characters.
