Summary: (from goodreads) After Janie Newman's half sister Laurel steals her boyfriend, Jamie leaves New York and the humiliation behind for the island of Seaside Cove, North Carolina. But the cozy cottage she booked turns out to be a rundown bungalow. And she's not alone. Her drama-prone mother, angst- ridden niece and newly dumped Laurel all follow her down. With a cottage this crowded, will she ever have a chance at finding love again?

Jamie felt that by putting 700 miles in between her life drama and the back staving half-sister who stole her boyfriend , she could get away and have a chance to recover from the humiliation. But her life was getting from bad to worse when she finds that her getaway rental cottage retreat is far from a retreat and more like a nightmare. She confronts Nick, the owner, only to find that she has trouble keeping her wits around the guy, and will have no choice but to tough it out for the 2 months that she rented at Paradise Lost . To top it all the family drama ends up following her back to her island retreat and that’s when the “fun” begins.

The authors description of the location and the peculiar local characters transports you , so you fall in love with the place and the main characters big loving hearts, making it hard to stop reading the book in one seating. A must read for those who like refreshing romances with some fun and the right amount of drama. There is hint at the end that Seaside Cove will bring more romance and adventure, can’t wait to read it.
