"Readers won't want to leave the heartwarming stories of Honeymoon Harbor."—Publishers Weekly
Welcome back to Honeymoon Harbor, where the majestic scenery of this small coastal town is second only to the legendary romances that have built the community...
Pro quarterback Burke Mannion is at a crossroads in his career—nearing retirement age, he wonders if it’s time to hang up his cleats, or keep pushing on and head to training camp in a few short weeks. The decision is delayed by an upsetting phone call from his brother, and without blinking, Burke packs for Honeymoon Harbor and the home he hasn’t seen in years. The last person he expects to see when he arrives is the woman he had once thought might be the one—the same woman who had broken up with him by text as she left New York.
Having heard Burke’s stories about Honeymoon Harbor, Lily Fletcher never really believed there was any place as idyllic as he’d made it sound. But as much as she’s tried to keep her past in the past by avoiding personal connections, deep down she secretly always hoped she’d see Burke again. As Lily and Burke fall back into their unresolved feelings for one another, she knows she has to come clean about who she really is as he struggles with the choice to go back to the celebrity life he knows or embrace the one he’s beginning to think could be the true path to happiness.

But What About…
Pros: Appealing characters, even the supporting cast, and reasonable plot line. Also the sexy parts are pretty sexy. Author easily pulls you into the story and sets you up to want to take the ride.
Cons: Another one where loose ends aren’t tied up. Lily’s huge fear that kept her from relationships and kept het moving around (until Honeymoon Harbor) never surfaces. Never comes home to roost, so we are left at the end not only unsatisfied by the omission of fleshing out that part of her life, we also feel like she’s a bit of a paranoid snowflake for running from shadows all her life.
Also, Burke’s “solution” (which shouldn’t really be needed since Lily’s fears were unfounded) was to walk away from the career he dreamed of since childhood and then paste together a professional life with an improbable buckshot scenario of multiple options, none of which have a realistic feel.
I love this author but I feel over the past few books like she’s being pushed to a zippy wrap up before she’s able to really bring the story together. I hope that changes.
