Sandy knew the aches in her body wouldn’t disappear if she didn’t change her life. At fifty-four, she’d made a successful career for herself, but it came at a mental and physical cost that left her deciding to burn her world down. She’d sell off everything, including her successful advertising business, and drive across the country. Little did she know, Seaside, Oregon, with its peaceful beaches, beautiful ocean view, and small-town feel would reopen a wound she thought had closed thirteen years earlier.
Craig thought his life was awesome. Great job, always busy, plenty of money, and an understanding with whomever he spent time with. Until he looked at his existence and found it to be not just boring, but empty. His remedy? Cut communication from his old life, throw his bag in his car, and drive north from Oakland, CA. Stopping at Seaside seemed to bring him respite until he saw the one woman who shattered his heart thirteen years ago.
When he seduces Sandy and confesses his feelings for her, it quickly goes south, leaving him with only one option. Return to his previous life.
Except Sandy’s realization of how deeply they loved one another forces her to find him, and hope to salvage things until she accidentally smashes her SUV into his Porsche.
Can our lovers overcome their past and give romance a second chance, or will they end up brokenhearted and alone?
This is the first time I have read this author and they did not disappoint. This whole series so far is really good and just down to earth. Sandy needed a break and knew she needed to get on with her life before she withers away. When she ends up in a small town she knows that she can rest if not for a little while. What she didn't expect was to see the one man that she never really got over. Craig needed a break himself and when he finds himself at a small seaside bed and breakfast his past is about to hit him in full force. These two have some unresolved issues that they need to work through. The problem they aren't so sure that anything can be fixed. Find out what broke them apart and if they can mend the bond?
Welcome to Summers in Seaside, a small town located along the Oregon Coast and home of the Seaside Festival. This series returns in July of 2023, with brand new stories filled with sun, sand and summer adventures that will tug at your heart strings.
