After her divorce, librarian Annie Reynolds thought she’d closed the book on love for good—it just wasn’t part of her safe, comfortable routine. But if there’s anyplace she can relax and have a little fun, it’s Dune Road, where she and her closest girlfriends return for their annual getaway in the Hamptons. She knows it’s just what she needs to escape her empty nest (and empty bed).
A chance encounter with a ruggedly handsome local promises Annie just that. But when one of her friends turns a simple flirtation with B-list movie star Jason Wilde into seduction—and Jason accidentally mixes a few drinks and his back-pain medicine—the ladies end up with a very high-profile houseguest. The media calls it a kidnapping, and before long, the FBI is on the hunt.
Soon the ladies’ tame little trip has turned into the adventure of a lifetime. But will this case of mistaken misdoing sabotage Annie’s second chance at love, or will she have the confidence to take matters into her own hands to find her happily ever after?
I would like to thank Netgalley and Lake Union Publishing for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This was an adorable second chance at love novel. It was a quick fun read which I really enjoyed. This story had it all, mystery, intrigue, humor, friendship and most of all romance. I would love to start a girl’s weekend since reading this. Not for a kidnapping, but a friends down time would be great. I really enjoyed all the characters. I loved the chemistry between them all and just the wittiness and interactions. If you are in for a fun, cute little read this is it.
