Chef Gwen Fletcher has moved to Misty Harbor, Maine, to fulfill her dream of opening her own restaurant. She quickly learns that the small town is full of eligible bachelors, from politicians to fishermen, and finds herself being openly courted. Despite their attention, Gwen is drawn to Daniel Creighton, the handsome carpenter she's hired to renovate her restaurant, Catch of the Day. Daniel is also attracted to Gwen but believes that she, like most women, will be unable to see beyond his scarred face. As the two work long hours together toiling over the grand-opening preparations for the restaurant, their friendship blossoms into romance. Soon the eligible bachelors of Misty Harbor have given up on Gwen, and she dares to dream of sharing her life with Daniel. But when Gwen accidentally opens the door to a tragic secret from Daniel's past, everything that Gwen and Daniel have built together is threatened. Beautifully written with charmingly real characters, Evanick's romance will surely snare readers' hearts.
I enjoyed the characters and am glad the author expanded the series to give Gwen's sisters, Sydney and Jocelyn their own books. I'm not going to go into a summary of the book as I don't want to spoil anyone's discovery and enjoyment of this fun summertime read.
