"In the shadows of a huge tree, ...pulled me aside and gave me the most tender, slow, loving kiss. While we'd kissed before, there was something special about his one, something deeper."
Well, that about says it all about this one. Yep, it's a great beach read romance.
Seventeen-year-old Em is going to go against the family tide and take her Aunt Tilly up on her invitation to spend the summer with her on the Outer Banks. Em's sister, Gwenny, makes sure there's a black and gold bikini in Em's otherwise careful suitcase full of clothes.
Em is going to start risking and unwrapping some of those ties that bind in the freedom of her Aunt's bed and breakfast. Here is a family that Em can really connect with and belong to. Here is a chance to see if she really can cook and to fall in love with that handsome guy who does all the odd jobs, etc. around the place.
It's a fairly light romance with a touches of family angst and one big secret to reveal.
