Goodreads: The author of New Uses for Old Boyfriends returns to the Delaware seashore town of Black Dog Bay, where one woman learns to put passion before practicality…
Brighton Smith doesn’t do outrageous. As an insurance actuary, it’s her job to assess risk and avoid bad investments. But when her fiancé calls to confess he’s married someone else on a whim (“I looked at her and I just knew!”), she snaps…
That night, at a local bar, Jake Sorensen—hot, rich, and way out of her league—buys Brighton a cocktail. At midnight, she kisses him. And by dawn, they’re exchanging vows at a drive-through chapel.
Brighton knows Jake is a bad bet, but she doesn’t care. After a lifetime of playing it safe, she’s finally having fun. Until the whirlwind romance gives way to painful reality…and Brighton finds out the truth about why a guy like Jake married a girl like her. With her heart on the line and the odds stacked against them, Brighton must decide whether to cut her losses or take a leap of faith that this love affair is one in a million.
Ope’s Opinion: This is the third in the Black Dog Bay series. Although it could be read alone, it is so much more fun to start at the beginning. I enjoyed this read, but not as much as the first two.
I really like the small town setting. It was great to see some “old friends” from the previous books – that is kind of how they feel – like seeing someone you haven’t seen in a while. This story line was a bit different from the first two, but I like that she ( Beth Kendrick ) isn’t using a formula to write each book.
I liked how the story was wrapped the up. Thanks to my daughter, I have the next one on my shelf – I will be reading it soon.
