Best-selling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends 12 hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller - that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

This is the story of Kurt and Leanna, who on the surface would normally be suited to each other. He is neat and tidy to the point of OCD. Leanna is the exact opposite but its seems its just what both of them need. Add to this her friends who each could have their own story, who look out for each other, and Pepper Leanna's dog who will do anything for Kurt. With some books that don't go into explicit detail it tends to lose its way, but this has more depth to the story with the added characters that you don't notice that there are no swear words or explicit sex. Look forward to reading more. Having read the book I have also listened to it as well. Its just as good listening to it

This book had it all, laughter and tears to the end. Danica and Kaylie are having a double wedding. All is good the sun is shining, their family and friends are all there. Even their father is there with his new wife and their half sister Lacey. after getting to know Lacey they welcome her into their lives. Of course not everything goes the way they want it to, but of course they get through it. There was the right amount of angst, tears and laughter, make for a very good listen. Great end to the Snow Sisters, and a great introduction to the Braden family.

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux - an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy - is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

Who couldn’t fall in love with Matt and Hagen. Mira and Matt have been flirting with each other for a long time. They met at his brothers wedding and kept in touch. Now Matt is back on the Cape for 3 months or so he thought. Once he gets to know Mira better he realises that he couldn’t go back. Add in Mira’s adorable son Hagen and he is definitely isn’t leaving. Nice to see the original seaside ladies make an appearance and still up to mischief. This was one of my favourite audio books well worth a listen to

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn - and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

Parker and Grayson have been emailing each other for months, when they finally get to meet each other its not how Parker though it would go. Grayson is looking after her house in Wellfleet and stumbles across her in a drunken state covered in M&Ms. After getting over her embarrassment, she sees Grayson in a different light and develops feeling for him. He helps her overcome the loss of her best friend Bert, and he loves her dog Christmas. While in Wellfleet she starts to relax and enjoy a life she could only image, she meets the girls from Seaside as well as Grayson's family. The story takes us on a journey of discovery and heartache and what ifs. I have also listened to the audio version, which is told by male and female narrators. Takes a bit a getting used to but after a few minutes of listening you get immersed into the book. Loved this book, well done Addison

This is the second book in the Snow sisters series. It mainly focuses on Kaylie and Chas's relationship as they approach parenthood. In between the story is the growing relationship between Danica and Blake as they head towards living together. Add in the side characters of Gage and Sally it makes for a great listen. Sometimes Kaylie comes across as a whining teenager, but as you get further into the book you realise she lets her past control her future. BJ Harrison is a great narrator.

Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life. Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants.

Blake Carter is a ski shop owner and former Acro-skier and a playboy. Danica Snow is a therapist and big sister who cares about everyone. When Blake's best friend dies he is thrown into a downward spiral of not knowing what to do. After one to many one night stands Blake decides to get in touch with a therapist, which turns out to be Danica. From the start there is a spark of romance. Danica tries to fight this all the way, but Blake finally wears her down. This is a lovely book that also introduces Kailey her sister and some of the Braden family who are Blake's cousins. Loved the interaction with Danica and Kaley who are polar opposites for sisters. Great narration from BJ Harrison

I loved this story. Blue Ryder has been trying to get Lizzie Barber to go out with him for over a year. She has been resisting as she has a secret that she has never shared with anyone. While Blue is fixing her kitchen he asks Lizzie for a date, she finally says yes. She sees that there is a life outside her secret, it also reminds her that she needs to come clean with Blue. When he finds out she is the Naked Baker he cant hide his feelings.
Lizzie then tells her best friend Skye and then her family. Her father stops talking to her. When all seems lost Blue comes back, he cant live without Lizzie. Blue is my new hero. Look forward to seeing more of him and Lizzie in upcoming books. Great narration.

It's been years since Sally Tuft's husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she'd ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been. Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that's simmered between them since the day they met.

Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

We met Sky in Pete and Jenna's story, she is a free spirit glad to be back on the Cape. While on a night out with the Seaside ladies she gets her first glimpse of Sawyer Bass. He is a boxer and poet, loyal to his family. When they meet there is an instant attraction. They are drawn together by their love of poetry and the strong family bonds. When she learns of his fathers illness she begins to understand his need to box, even though she doesn't like it. When this threatens to tear them apart they both realise they have some hard decisions to make. Loved the narration by Melissa Moran.
