Charlotte Madsen's whole world came crashing down six months ago with the words, "I met someone else."
Thirty-seven, recently divorced, and childless. That's Charlotte when she disembarks from the plane in Getaway Bay. She wants to get away, that's for sure. She thought the best way to do that was to buy a run-down house overlooking the bay, knowing she'll need all her fixer-upper skills to get it in shape. Which is just fine. She's hoping as she overhauls the house, she'll get a life makeover too.
She was not expecting a tall, handsome man to be under the kitchen sink when she arrives at the supposedly abandoned house. She wasn't expecting to get drenched when the non-plumber twists something the wrong way. And she certainly wasn't expecting her heart to be well enough to feel anything for anyone.
But former Air Force pilot, Dawson Dane, has a charming devil-may-care personality, and Charlotte could use some carefree laughter in her life. But everything with Dawson isn't sunshine and unicorns. He's estranged from his family, though he does speak to one of his brothers. And he's never committed to anything except his career, even choosing flying over an engagement years ago.
Can Charlotte navigate the healing process as she renovates the island house? Can Dawson finally make a commitment to a woman? Or will he and Charlotte decide a relationship is just too hard?
Perfect for young readers
If you are looking for a book without graphic sex, or any sex for that matter, this is it. I would be glad to hand it to a tween or young teen without that concern. My biggest objection is the whole idea of falling head over heals in love with someone you’ve just met. You may fall into like, but love takes more time. Anyway, it’s a simple storyline, told a million times over, but, thankfully without anything that would embarrass young or old! It’s very short, more of a novella.
