When recently divorced Allie Barrett receives a letter notifying her that she’s inherited her deceased uncle’s home and fishing charter business in Oregon, she quickly decides the coastal town of Pacific Bay might be the perfect place to start over and raise her eleven-year-old son. But her high hopes are dashed when she discovers the quaint home on the bay is really a ramshackle dump in severe need of renovation and the fishing charter is a run-down business requiring an infusion of financial capital she does not have. Worse, the town mayor and her son are her competition and employ extreme measures to block her success.
With a surprise money source in hand, and the help of a no-nonsense widower who offers the love she’s always wanted, Allie finally finds things turning around in her favor. In fact, her story might just have a happy ending . . . that is, until her good-for-nothing ex, Deacon Ray, shows up and complicates matters.
This heartfelt story is filled with charm and quirky, fun characters and is sure to please readers looking for the perfect beach read!
