Can a summer of love make up for a lifetime of secrets?
Wedding fever has taken over Harmony Harbor this summer, and the local matchmakers have set their sights on Theia Lawson, a former navy pilot who's in town for a stay at Greystone Manor. And while Theia's got her reasons to put this small town behind her as fast as she can, there's a certain tall, dark, and irresistible man that she can't seem to get off her mind.
Firefighter Marco DiRossi wants to beat the matchmakers at their own game so he conspires with Theia to pretend they've already fallen in love. It's only for the summer. What could go wrong? Yet as the beach season draws to a close, Marco and Theia find their pretend relationship has led to very real attraction. But when a secret from the past is revealed, jeopardizing everything they hold dear, can this unlikely couple find their way to a happily-ever-after?
I received an ARC in an exchange for an honest, unbiased review of this book. I am avid reader of Debbie Mason's books and have been for a while. This is my fourth book in the Harmony Harbor Series that I have read of Debbie's series so I was estatic to see that she was coming out with another book even though coming near the end of the series.
Debbie did a great job of creating a well develop character in that of Theia Lawson as she does with all her characters. This character really felt like she fit in the town, family and DeRossi family.
In addition to the characters I really enjoyed the storyline. Debbie does a great job of carrying the storyline of the Harmony Harbor series on from book to book. But even if you don't read them starting from the beginning she will catch you up.
If there was only one fault I would find in this book would be that I wish that she would have spent a little more time building the relationship with Marco and Theia like she had with the other characters in previous books. I felt their love story was lost a little bit with all the other drama going on in the book. But overall I really enjoyed the book. If you enjoy drama, romance and mystery or any of those this book is for you! Check it out.
I am very interested in reading the next book to find out what happens next!
