Goodreads: Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest, most beautiful islands in the Florida Keys.
Jo Wright always swore she’d never step foot on Little Bridge Island—not as long as her nemesis, bestselling author Will Price, is living there.
Then Jo’s given an offer she can’t refuse: an all-expense-paid trip to speak and sign at the island’s first-ever book festival.
Even though arrogant Will is the last person Jo wants to see, she could really use the festival’s more-than-generous speaking fee. She’s suffering from a crippling case of writer’s block on the next instalment of her bestselling children’s series, and her father needs financial help as well.
Then Jo hears that Will is off-island on the set of the film of his next book. Hallelujah!
But when she arrives on Little Bridge, Jo is in for a shock: Will is not only at the book festival, but seems genuinely sorry for his past actions—and more than willing not only to make amends but prove to Jo that he’s a changed man.
Things seem to be looking up—until disaster strikes, causing Jo to wonder: Do any of us ever really know anyone?
Ope’s Opinion: As a blogger I have been to several book festivals, so I was very interested in reading this book hoping to get insight into a festival from the authors perspective. I think I did get a little of the authors view of a festival, but there were so many antics going on, it didn’t feel real to me.
I was disappointed that the main character was portrayed as childish. Her love interest went from enemies to romance – it was a slow moving one – which I really like.
Although this was the third book in the series ( my first ) it stood alone just fine. I did not feel I was missing any information from pervious books.
I had a similar experience with a recent book. Kind of put me off the younger characters contemporary romance. I hope you love your next read!
