Seaside Surprises: A Sweet Romance by Stacy Claflin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Description: Tiffany Saunders is on the run. When she winds up stranded in a seaside town, she wants nothing more than to forget her horrific past and kept moving. But a chance meeting with a handsome local changes everything.
Jake Hunter has some deep emotional scars and is trying to cope with running the family business. The last thing he wants is a relationship—until a mysterious brunette walks into his store and complicates it all.
Tiffany prefers to keep the painful memories of the past where they belong—in her rear view mirror. But dark secrets cannot stay hidden forever. Just as the walls around Tiffany’s heart start to come down, the past catches up with her. Will true love be able to conquer all?
My thoughts: Tiffany is running from her abusive husband. Her goal is to get far away as quickly as possible. She stops in a little tourist town and has car problems. The good part about that is that she gets to spend a little more time with Jake, the guy from the convenience store. He is everything her husband isn't and she can't stay away, even though she knows it would be better if she did.
This was a cute book. I liked Tiffany and Jake. They are two great people who need to find some happiness in life. Their time together is full of outside problems that make it harder for them to find their happily ever after.
The book is clean and looks like it is the first in a series. Jake has brothers who need a little bit of happiness and romance as well.
