Photojournalist and die-hard wanderer Gage Lowell plans a little R & R in Crescent Cove, the place of idyllic childhood summers. Beach House No. 9 seems like a great place to relax after his latest harrowing adventure and he plans to surprise old friend and current pen pal, Skye Alexander, who manages the beachside properties. Though the last time they’d met in person they’d been kids, her communications over the years have kept him in touch…and sometimes saved him from his dark demons. But upon arrival, Skye doesn’t seem all that happy to make his re-acquaintance…
Skye knows it’s nuts not to be eager to spend time with the hard-bodied, ultra-sexy Gage. But it’s clear he sees her as just a friend and she might be thinking of him in a little more…uh, intimate terms. And then there’s the subject of secrets. Clearly he’s holding one back and she has them of her own. But the way he smiles at her…then the way he kisses her…can she open herself up to him in order to discover just how close to Paradise the two of them might come?
The wedding day at the sea. Young romantic couple running on the beach

Book Review

5 Star Review

I want to start this review by saying I’m extremely sad to see this series end. I have loved all the books in this series. Christie Ridgway has done an amazing job making these characters feel real. Like all books in this series, we are back at Crescent Cove and Beach House No. 9. Gage is has come to the Cove for his brother’s wedding. Gage is looking forward to rest and catching up with childhood friend Skye. Skye has helped Gage through so much by sending him letters. The only problem is, they both have secrets. Things that haunt them both. Neither wants to talk about them. In the end, they have to decide if they can come clean and move on or let the past define them.

This story also has a second couple, Polly and Teague. Polly has a thing for her best friend, but Teague doesn’t see it until it’s almost too late. I like seeing them get their HEA.

I hope you will check this story out. I have fallen in love with these characters. I feel like I’m emotionally invested in these characters. These stories are emotional and realistic. While I’m sad to see this series end, I’m excited to see what Christie Ridgway has to come in the future.
