Publisher's Summary

Eclipse Bay has grown and flourished on the rugged Oregon coast, where the shore can be rocky and forbidding, full of sharp cliffs and hidden coves. But this small town is also filled with secrets as treacherous as the landscape - and rivalries as fierce as an ocean storm....

Their grandfathers hated each other. Their fathers hated each other. And as the next generation of Hartes and Madisons, Hannah and Rafe are expected to hate 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 more than just "that disreputable Madison boy". And Rafe remembers the heroic gesture that proved Hannah's fierce spirit was stronger than any feud - and saved him from near-certain imprisonment.

Now - reunited by a surprising inheritance after years of living their separate lives - 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 delightful and deeply disturbing: they don't hate each other. Not at all....

Pay another visit to Eclipse Bay.

    Story
    "I was surprised to like this book so much!"

    This is the story of Hannah and Rafe. Their families hated each other and they continued the tradition. They inherit a property together and they discover that they don't hate each other after all. There are many twist and turns on this story and lots of suspense. I could never figure out who the bad guy who was trying to harm Hanna was. I couldn't stop listening to this story and I finished it in 3 days. Usually it takes me about a week.

    The narrator did a good job with this story and I look forward to listening to the next book in this series and more books narrated by Joyce Bean.

    "Alright"

    So I was looking for a distraction and this book provided just that. It is a nice listen, nothing too heavy, and even has a light crime mystery angle. The romantic development was nice, not a bodice riper.

    "cute story"

    This was the first book I've read by this author. I enjoyed it and will probably get another of her books. The narrator was pretty good as well.

    Story
    "Couldn't feel it"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Maybe a different narrator, but I couldn't get into it.


    Has Eclipse Bay turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I've been a member for 2 years and this is only the second book I couldn't finish.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joyce Bean’s performances?

    Don't know.


    What character would you cut from Eclipse Bay?

    Hannah. But I think it was the narrator. Her voice reminded me of the blonde bimbo on Liar Liar.


    Any additional comments?

    I just could get into it. I didn't feel the passion.

    Story
    "A Good Oldie"

    I listened to this book when it first came out 17 years ago. I enjoyed it then and I enjoyed it now. It's more of a romantic comedy with a mystery twist that is more reminiscent of the era in which it was written than the explicit, soft porn romance novels of today. Those that didn't like it are looking for something else and are being a bit unfair to the author and narrator, I think. I love this series with its quirky characters, funny dialogue, and cute romance scenes!

    "fun listen"

    Hana was a little hard to get into mostly toward the end when she was still acting so snobbish but overall enjoyed the story. Narrator did a great job. You always knew who was talking.
