A sparkling debut romance that is "charming and funny and a totally great read" (--Susan Mallery), in which a getaway vacation turns into an unexpected new beginning…For fans of Susan Wiggs and Susan Mallery.
For the last five years, Giselle McCabe’s life has been about sippy cups and playdates. But when her husband suddenly leaves her, Giselle flees to her sister’s California beach house for a two-week getaway. Out of her element, she’s surprised to receive such a warm welcome—especially from gorgeous celebrity athlete Fin Hensen…
Fin is escaping his pro tour for a season, trying to lie low until all the hubbub over a huge mistake in his past blows over. And when he sets his sights on Giselle, he realizes that the beautiful good girl just might be the ticket to his success.
But Giselle never expected romance to enter the picture again—especially with a hot twentysomething from a completely different world. And even though it feels like Fin is everything she’s trying to run away from, she can’t help coming back for more…
The easy charm of fictional Sandy Cove, Calif. sets the scene for a sweet romance between divorced mother Giselle McCabe and international surfing star Fin Hensen. Giselle and her five-year-old, Coco, are visiting Giselle's sister, Lia, in Sandy Cove. Giselle plans to photograph a neighbor's surf camp in exchange for surfing lessons for Coco. Shortly after meeting, Fin and Giselle arrange to be each other's companions for two difficult occasions: Giselle must attend her former father-in-law's funeral, where she expects to see her ex and his new lover, and Fin wants a "Donna Reed" type to improve his image at an important sponsor event. Buoyed by complementary needs for stability and appreciation, Giselle and Fin face the obstacles of their age differences, different lifestyles, and opposition from Giselle's ex. Christopher's writing is crisp and her characters are strong, and readers will look forward to the next installments in the trilogy.
