Zoe's a security specialist and a Costas through and through. Her eccentric, rather dubious family runs an Atlantic City Spa that's just this side of legit. So Zoe isn't inclined to trust handsome, charming Ryan Baldwin when he shows up claiming to be related to Sam, the girl the Costas family is about to adopt. But Ryan is Sam's uncle and one of the famously rich and snooty Boston Baldwins.
Ryan's search for his sister Faith has led him to news of her death, and to a niece he's never met. But someone else has also tracked Sam down-someone who never wanted the child to be found. Ryan is determined to protect Sam and find out what really happened to his sister, and Zoe "Whatever-it-Takes" Costas is just the woman to help him do it.
Great story line. Different than usual romance with a touch of mystery. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Quick fun read about Zoe Costas and her zany family. Zoe faces losing her foster sister Sam and her heart when someone from Sam's past resurfaces. A small mystery is thrown into the mix for good measure. Entertaining.

This is the follow up to "Under the Boardwalk". THANK YOU CARLY PHILLIPS for bringing us even MORE of the crazy Costas family and all the wild things that they do in the name of family and love. Zoe Costas is just trying to figure out her place in the world and her place in love. With the help of her family, a crazy monkey, a foster kid and a hot preppie named Ryan, she finds her way to her own kind of bliss.
Great read with laughs and love. Carly Phillips delivers again!
Another good book by Carly Phillips. This is the 2nd about the Costas sisters.

Very funny read in the series on the Costas family. This time it's Zoe's turn.
Carly Phillips series regarding the Costas family is funny, fast-paced, keeps you turning the pages
Fun in the sun plus a mystery!
Carly Phillips writes such great light romances. This one is about Zoe who is a secruity specialist in Atlantic specialist.
Zoe abd her eccentric family are in the process of adopting a troubled girl, when a long lost, and handsome uncle shows up to stake his claim. A good read.
This was even BETTER than the first book, Under the Boardwalk! Love, love, love this book and read it in two sittings I was so addicted!
Nice quick evening read! :)
Zoe Costas is from a very eccentric, rather dubious family who are Greek through and through. They are in the process of trying to adopt a young girl whose mother died and "Sam" is quite a handful. Soon a man shows up, Sam's Uncle, who has been looking for his niece and has doubts about the Costas family. They think he is the Social Worker who is there to check out the family, and he doesn't tell them the truth, that he wants to take Sam back to his Upper Crust family in Boston. It gets rather complicated after Zoe realizes who he really is. Very good book, fast read. I really liked it.
I really enjoyed Carly Phillips new book. It had everything you could want great characters and fun story!
Juicy book! A lil bit of mystery wit a whole lotta lovin! And thats comin' from a suthern gal!
2nd in Costas sisters series. This is Zoe & Ryan's story. Another great one. Love Carly Phillips.
Quick read with a happy ending.
If you like fun and wacky family versus the stuff upper crust this will be a courious read. Loved the contrast in families.
Sequel to Under the Boardwalk. Fun summer read.
A little mystery and a lot of love, great read.
An eccentric family, a security specialist, an uptight lawyer and a foster child who connects them all.
Zoe is a security specialist with a ditzy family who have adopted a teenager. However,the real Uncle, a hunk and an attorney show up. Sparks over custody, but more their mutual attraction keep this cute story flying.
This book does not have the dust jacket, but is in excellent condition.
never read this book...would rather spend my time reading something different! Great Chick Lit though!
