Jane Pearson is a Book Doctor. She helps authors keep on task, and organizes their thoughts and notes. When she is assigned to Griffin Lowell she arrives at Beach House No.9 expecting a hermit but finds her new author surrounded by 20somethings and the host of party central. Griffin doesnt want to work, Jane needs the work. The fun begins.
First I have to say I am a Christie Ridgway fan. I love her books and her characters. I loved the characters in this book but found myself getting frustrated at their obstacles and struggles. With the side story of Tess and David, I loved them and their brood, but found that their relationship resolution would have been a hell of a lot quicker had Tess went into a wife like rage like any normal woman would have done. She was way too calm and composed.
The story is romantic and heartbreaking at times. Their chemistry is undeniable and sexy. The pace moved a little slower than I would have liked, but in the end it was worth it. This is the first of a three book series and I am excited to read the next two. This book does a great job of introducing you to the players and setting up the next books. I am especially excited for Skye and Gages story.
