In the latest Sandy Cove romance from the author of The Red Bikini, ten good reasons aren’t enough to keep Lia and Evan apart…
With a crazy eighty-hour-a-week job, an almost-boyfriend who’s left her for Bora Bora, and way too many terrible bridesmaid dresses in her future, Lia McCabe needs a change of pace before the imminent crush of the big 3-0.
First up, Lia is determined to help make sure her friend Drew’s whale-watching business takes off. But when an accident leaves him unable to man the boat, Lia’s only option is to convince Drew’s brooding, sexy brother to captain the ship (and save her butt).
For the last two years, Evan Betancourt has been sailing around the world to avoid the ghosts of his past. But when he pulls into Sandy Cove for a brief stop, Lia makes him an offer she won’t let him refuse.
And as these two opposites figure out how to work together, the murky waters between denial and attraction are creeping up fast…
Sparks are ignited when workaholic marketing guru Lia McCabe persuades grieving world-sailor Evan Bentacourt to captain his ailing estranged brother Drew's catamaran during Sandy Cove, Calif.'s whale-watching season. Lia has Drew's interests at heart, but she's also committed to taking important clients out on the boat in hopes of satisfying her demanding boss. Lia's life is further complicated by her commitments to be in three upcoming wedding parties, with the attendant need for the right pairs of shoes, when she barely has time for her cat or her absentee boyfriend. Christopher (The Red Bikini) deftly incorporates serious matters, such as a natural tragedy and the deaths of Evan's first wife and their son, without veering into maudlin waters. Readers will cheer for reserved Evan and overwhelmed Lia to make themselves vulnerable to one another, and will wholeheartedly believe in their romance.
