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!

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.)

I really liked this story! I'm excited that it's a series and that I get to follow these characters a little further. Both Rafe and Hannah are incredibly independent individuals and to see them come together was fun. Hannah is very naive which was a little annoying at times, but it still worked for her in this book.

The little bit of drama that the two were involved in gave the story something more than just a love story. Most of all, their honesty and determination carry them through the investigation of who killed a young girl 8 years ago, and that same determination brings them together. I suppose that the investigation into the death of Rafe's old girlfriend eight years prior was a little bit of a stretch. After 8 years, you wouldn't think that finding the killer would be possible, but Rafe and Hannah uncover the secrets and in the end bridge the gap between their families.

Overall, this was a quick easy read and very enjoyable. I'm really liking Krentz's stuff and look forward to several that she's got coming out!

Their grandfathers hated each other. Their fathers hated each other

And as the next generation of the Hartes and Madisons, Hannah and Rafe are expected to hare each other too. But Hannah Harte, a successful wedding consultant with a skeptical view of marriage, remembers the long ago night on the beach that revealed Rafe as much morre than just "that disreputable Madison boy". And Rafe remembers the hreoic gesture that proved Hannahs's fierce spirity was stronger than any feud and saved him from near-certain imprisonment.

Now reunited by a surprising inheritance after years of living their separate livnes. Rafe and Hannah return to Eclipse Bay and the hostilities that still divide and bind, their families. And they are discovering something that is at once helightful and deeply disturbing.

They don't hate each other after all
