About this ebook

Try the first book in the Lighthouse Point series.

Sometimes the right person enters your life at exactly the wrong time...

For the first time in her life, struggling bakery owner Julie Farmington has something that is all hers.

She’s not interested in any entanglements or anything that takes her mind off her goal—including the handsome stranger who is only in town for a month.

Forced to take time off work, Reed Newman makes a spur-of-the-moment decision and books a trip to Belle Island, Florida. A surprising choice that goes against everything in the rigid, well-planned life he fills with constant activity to keep from dealing with his pain and guilt.

As he struggles to make peace with his past—and learn to relax—he finds himself falling for the charming owner of The Sweet Shoppe. But Julie tells herself she isn’t interested in a man who is just going to leave when he returns home. She’s not interested in adding yet one more name to the list of people who have walked out of her life.


She’s not interested. Really.

But emotions heat up. Reed's past and Julie's present collide and history threatens to repeat itself. 

And neither one saw it coming...

Get this heartwarming first book in the Lighthouse Point series. Three friends—Tally, Susan, and Julie—support each other through triumphs and failures, love and loss. Fall in love with Belle Island and the friendly—or not so friendly—townsfolk on this small southern island.

i loved this sweet story of two people who never see each other as the one . It is pretty clear that they are meant for each other. But their pasts haunt them and they take a while to trust each other. I loved the setting of the book and that each ot the three ladies are very good friends and business women in their communtity. I would highly recommend this lovely read for the beach or in the middle of the winter when we are dreaming of our one true love and a day on the beach in the sunshine

I love they way this story was written because I got to slow down and take my time to read and imagine if i was there somewhere in the story itself as if I was at the Magic Cafe enjoying Grouper fish with Tally and sitting on the beach with Reed.

It took a couple of chapters for me to really get hooked. After that, it was hard to put it down. I really liked it a lot!
