Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Candle Beach, where falling in love is easy...almost.

Dahlia thought settling her aunt’s estate in the town where she’d spent every summer as a child would be easy, a one or two day job at the most. Discovering that she’s inherited a crumbling house and a failing bookstore puts a wrench in that plan.

With a nasty trustee who is determined to keep her from selling her inheritance and Garrett, a handsome neighbor who challenges her at every step, she doesn’t expect to have a future there.

However, Candle Beach grows on her, and she sees transformations in herself that she didn’t expect. With her childhood friends wanting her to stay and a developing attraction to Garrett, could Aunt Ruth’s bequest be the key to Dahlia’s happily ever after?

Join Dahlia and her friends as they find love and happiness in the small town of Candle Beach, Washington.

It was okay but not at the top of my favorites

I liked the storyline but the dialogue, especially between Dahlia and Garret was so “clunky”. Their relationship so awkward. The narrator, although, she had a pleasant voice had no emotion and often sounded like a beginning reader.

well, not the best I've ever read, that's for sure

the narrator is really awful, no emotion in her words, story line pretty basic, maybe I really should write my own romance novel
