USA Today bestselling author Debbie Mason presents the latest novel in the Harmony Harbor series. Perfect for fans of feel-good romances by New York Times bestselling authors Emily March, Sheila Roberts, and RaeAnne Thayne!
Jenna Bell loves her job as a wedding planner and loves a happy ever after even more. Until the day she meets with her newest client and discovers that the bride's fiancé is the man she's had a crush on for years. But she knows the #1 work rule: Never fall in love with the groom.
Secret Service Agent Logan Gallagher arrives at Tie the Knot to make plans with his bride-to-be. But coming face to face with Jenna after all these years brings back feelings that he's fought long and hard to forget. Does his attraction to Jenna mean that he's about to make the biggest mistake of his life?
Sandpiper Shore by Debbie Mason is the 6th book in the Harmony Harbor series, featuring the eldest Gallagher cousin Logan and matchmaker Jenna Bell. I personally love this series! It’s a fun, light contemporary that you can read in one-sitting, HEA guaranteed, and always leaves you smiling. In this installment of the series, Jenna Bell has a real-life Cinderella moment after her belief in love is dashed by her two-timing fiancé, but her Prince Charming doesn’t believe in happily ever afters.
Jenna is a wedding planner, but she has a secret gift of her own. She can look at a couple and be able to tell if they are soulmates. It’s a little quirky and endearing in my opinion. Too bad it doesn’t work on herself. She could have saved herself a lot of heartache. After her fiancé breaks the news that he is with her step-mom (gag me), Jenna has a one-night stand with the delectable Logan Gallagher. She isn’t ready for more though and their relationship moves into friends territory.
Logan isn’t the marrying kind. He’s more married to his job than anything, yet he finds himself in over his head where Jenna is concerned. Moving her to the friendzone is safer for the both of them in his opinion. Then an accident leaves him with amnesia and mysteriously engaged to the woman he was sworn to protect.
The plot for this book is a little all over the place. There are many threads that eventually combine. However this doesn’t distract from the enjoyment of the story. Sandpiper Shore is more than a romance, it’s mystery and intrigue, and some adventure mixed in just for fun. And I can’t forget the ghostly Colleen who is stuck in a limbo of sorts as her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren decide what to do with her estate. If you enjoy contemporary romance, I highly recommend this one. It will make a fantastic beach read this summer.
