Add to Wish List
Itâ€™s tough to grasp a second chance at love when youâ€™re
holding on to the past.
After his wife died in a car accident, bestselling author
Hunter McCaffrey stopped writingâ€”and stopped living. Heâ€™s
rented a beachfront cottage to try to get his head on
straight, and start the long climb up from his pit of
Instead of pounding out a first draft, though, he runs the
beach, drinks away his pain, and tries to ignore the
woman in the cottage tucked next to his.
Still floundering months after the loss of her
adventure-junkie husband, Sylvie Chase hopes some beach
relaxation will help her decide what to do with the rest
her life. Instead sheâ€™s wondering what to do about her
unexpected attraction to Hunter, who makes her body long
the feel of his arms around her.
As Sylvie drags Hunter back to the land of the living,
theyâ€™re agreeing to a short fling. Just to get past their
sorrow, not because it means anything. But when emotions
in the way, itâ€™s a struggle to leave the past behind and
dare to love again.
Warning: This story has plenty of sun and sand, with an
energetic golden retriever thrown into the mix. Prepare to
laugh and cry and cheer for two people who deserve a
chance at love.

Re: The Cottage Next Door
I live near one of the Great Lakes, and just moved here a
few years ago, after living in the city my entire life. You
could say that I have the best of both worlds, since I'm
surrounded by farmland as well, so when I've had enough of
the beachgoers, as well as the tourists, I can go back home,
and be surrounded by acreage which is part farmland and the
rest is woodlands. I was fortunate enough to see the
Atlantic Ocean when I was treated to a trip to Atlantic
City, and I was in love. In fact, my Sister and I took
another trip out there, not knowing that on that day, there
was a hurricane that was going to be arriving the next day.
It was really quite the experience to wade in the water,
while it was churning madly, with the hurricane a few
hundred miles away!! Lakes are big, but there are no words
to describe the ocean!! I'm in love with both, but am
grateful to live near the lake. This is where I was meant
to be, and where I've always wanted to live. I can't wait
to read your book!! I'm sure I'll be able to relate to it.

ocean ocean ocean - I live close enough to be on a beach in 20 minutes and sometimes when the wind is just right, can even smell it! The sand is hard-packed, the waves very gentle, the water is, well, character-building! But so soul refreshing to be able to walk and walk on that sand and in the water, looking for sand dollars and watching the gulls strut back and forth. Love that Revere Beach!
