Single and saucy, red-headed teacher Lucy Mitchell loves kids and has dedicated her life to working with them. During the summer Lucy works at the Moonlight Bay Camp for Kids, and this is her passion. Lucy fiercely protects the camp and the right for kids to have a place to go during the summer that is fun and safe.
Now a good-looking, smooth-talking, big city investor plans to tear down the camp and build condos for the rich. Not if Lucy has anything to say about it–Ian Flynn won’t even know what hit him. When Ian Flynn meets Lucy for the first time, it isn’t just her temper he notices; Lucy is a beautiful woman. But Ian has his own agenda and it doesn’t include old women, dogs, or children. Who will win this confrontation, and when they win, will they really have what they want most in this world?
I enjoyed Moonlight Bay. At the beginning of the story, I didn’t think I would like Ian but as the author fills in his background and why he thinks the way he does, I changed my mind. Lucy, I loved from the first time she told Ian just where he could go with his big city money and ideas! Also several memorable secondary characters add to the humor and drama aspects in the story. While Lucy and Ian are getting to know one another and beginning to think there may be a relationship here, Lucy’s sister is going through the breakdown of her marriage.
So again the author has set up a situation that seems so totally opposite that there can’t be common ground, or can there? I think the whole point of the story, besides the romance, is that even when you are diametrically opposed to another person’s point of view, with a little communication and an open mind to what you really want in life, you may find you have a lot more in common than you believe.
Armchair Interviews says: If you enjoy a romance with fiery clashes of will, physical chemistry, and a shot at true love, then you’ll like Moonlight Bay.
