Fans of Roxanne St. Claire might be disappointed that she
has strayed from her romantic suspense into the world of
straight contemporary romance, but for fans of contemporary
romance having a bestselling author dipping their toes into
that world is totally awesome!
With the release of Barefoot in the Sand St. Claire
introduces readers to the town of Mimosa Key, and to Lacey
Sinclair a young single mom who is barely eeking out a
living through a home baking business. She and her
daughter Ashley are living in a home much in need of
renovation, but circumstances just don't allow for extras
like that. Well, until through the forces of nature...
namely a hurricane that wipes away their home and almost
everything they own.
Clay Walker has seen his own share of heartache and loss,
though not through the forces of Mother Nature, but rather
through the often tricky path of love and family
relationships. His relationship with his father famous
architect Clayton Walker Senior is tenuous at best, and
nonexistent at worse. Clay comes into Lucy's life when
she thinks she has contacted his famous father to design
and build the bed and breakfast of her dreams, but instead
has contacted the wayward son.
Getting the wrong architect is just one of the many
obstacles Lacy is faced with. This could be the straw that
breaks the proverbial camel's back and has Lacy turning
tail and ignoring her dreams, but with the help of her best
friends forever, and a very determined Clay anything just
might be possible.
With the turning of the last page of BAREFOOT IN THE SAND I
was as deeply engrossed in the lives of Lacey's assorted
friends, the town of Mimosa Key (and their quirky, but
loving residents) as I was in whether or not Clay and Lacey
would see more than one dream become reality.
It is with much anticipation that I look forward to the
next installment in the Barefoot Bay series.
When a hurricane roars through Lacey Armstrong's
home on the coast of Barefoot Bay, she decides all that
remains in the rubble is opportunity. A new hotel is just
what Mimosa Key needs, and Lacey and her teenage daughter
are due for a fresh start. And nothing, especially not a
hot, younger architect, is going to distract Lacey
from finally making her dreams a reality.
second chance is the only thing you have
Love has already cost Clay Walker
everything. And if he's going to have any chance of picking
up the pieces of his life, he needs the job as Lacey
Armstrong's architect. What's not in the plans is falling
for the headstrong beauty. Her vision of the future is more
appealing than anything he could have ever drafted for
himself. Will Clay's designs on Lacey's heart be more than
she can handle, or will she trust him to build something
that will last forever?
