Not Krentz' best but a good read. Plenty of fun scenes and complex characters.
Story is kind of modern Romeo and Juliet. Two feuding families being surprised by the straightlaced Hannah providing Rafe an alibi for murder (she's just telling the truth). His family is surprised that a Harte would help a Madinson and hers can't believe she was hanging out with him. Not much sparks then and they both leave town to pursue seperate lives but they have some interesting times when they both get back to town a few years later and start tracking the murderer. (And I loved the little asides with the Winston the schnauzer.)
This is the first book in a three-book trilogy that tells the story of the Hartes and the Madisons of Eclipse Bay, Oregon. It is filled with romance and family relationships. Eclipse Bay is a town on the rugged edge of the Oregon coast. It is a town filled with treacherous secrets and fierce rivalries. It involves the current generation of the Harte and Madison families--Hannah and Rafe. Find out if they hate each other as their parents and grandparents did or have a new surprising feeling for each other. A wonderful book!
This is the first in the Eclipse Bay series by Jayne Ann Krentz. It has romance, mystery and family feuds all intertwined in an intriguing story.
Loved the characters in this story. Krentz is one of my favorite authors.
