A very picky trader.
3.0 out of 5 starsGood story, but overall unexpectedly very disappointing.

I was expecting a great deal from this book. Being a huge, major fan of Davis Bunn, I was very disappointed. I thought this book would have more depth to it, at least in the man and woman heading the story. Unfortunately, I thought Stella especially lacked strength of character, or involvement, in her feelings for the leading man. The angry sister, the stubborn niece, the other two daughters even, both came across stronger than the leading man and woman. Overall, not at all what I had hoped or expected from Davis Bunn. The book never totally grabbed my attention, though the theme could have been riveting.
Daniel, a handsome financial analyst, became enamored with the addictions of the high life as an anchor on the nightly news. That Daniel died in a tragic accident with his fiancee. He resurfaces in a quiet California seaside town, clean, sober, taking things a day at a time.
Daniel thinks he's loving his solitude when two women crash into his life - his teenage niece, Nicole, who is at odds with her self-centered mother; and pretty Jennifer, a single mother. As the three of them learn to trust each other, a strong bond is forged that changes all their lives in amazing ways.
This powerful story of second chances includes romance, crime-busting, and adventure was a real page-turner for me. Loved it, hated to see it end!

I've never really wanted to visit California, but reading this series by Davis Bunn makes me want to go see if the real city is anything like the one in the books! That's the best thing about a Bunn novel. The detail in the setting and the richness of the character development make you see the words come alive in your mind. That's what great fiction should do and this one doesn't disappoint. The story is compelling, the action is fast-paced, and the ending is worth the lack of sleep once you start the book. I highly recommend it to everyone who loves good fiction!

I've not read the earlier book is this series so I don't know if the main character's story is told there or not. He's a recovering alcoholic, which provides a reason for him to be where he's living and explains his reluctance to get our of his shell. But people keep getting thrown into his life that need his help. And at some point, he must utilize past skills to help the woman he cares about and to step into his future. I liked the characters and the way each interacted with the others. Some clever twists and turns in the plot held my attention. And a fitting ending as well.
At the end of each book in the Miramar Bay series I find myself want the story to go on. I enjoy the connections made to previous stories. I find comfort in heroes that don't let me down and hope in stories that right overcomes wrong. Keep them coming. I admit I have read and shared so many Bunn books I have lost count. I an never disappointed.
I have been a fan of Mr. Bunn's for a very !omg time. This latest series have been a joy to read. Tranquility Falls has been an exceptional read. It seems as each book in this series is better than the one before and I really hope there will be more in this series to look forward to!
This is a gripping, heart warming story about Daniel, who has fallen from stardom due to addictions. Now in recovery, he gets a 2nd chance to change lives. He becomes guardian to his neice, helps the teenager of a friend, and befriends a grieving woman & her daughter. Their lives weave together for good. I really enjoyed reading this and could hardly put it down.
