Ocean activist, Trace Latimer has fought for over twenty-five years for the sea otters, penguins, and all sea life, but she’s exhausted and angry at the big shots who always win. But when a cold-hearted businessman orders the demolition of her childhood home, she has to face the biggest fight of her life.
After a bureaucratic nightmare overshadowed his most recent project, entrepreneur Dustin Hawk is fed up. He liquidates his Seattle demolition business and warms to his best friend’s sunny Florida hotel project. Despite his fear of the ocean, he finds himself swimming in shark-infested small-town politics and fears he might drown.
Trace and Dustin face off for a fight which they are both determined to win. But they find themselves in unexpected waters when they have to choose between their convictions or their hearts’ desires.
I really loved this story. So many different turns, but the end was a happy love story. thank you55
A clean, romantic, mystery. A great read.55
This is the second in a series of stories of childhood friends finding their way through life and back into the lives of each other. Trace and Dustin’s story goes from one of enemies, to losing their hearts to each other. I enjoyed the changes the main characters made as the story progressed. They first brought out the worst in each other, but as they grew in trust, (in themselves and in each other), and understanding, they grew into stronger, better people. The friends are there to love and protect their own. Each has talent and expertise that is valuable to the group as a whole, in the circle they consider their sisters. I love that these strong women of the world have a positive influence on their friends and community. I would definitely recommend this clean collection to my reader friends. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.45
