Summary

Word gets around fast in Eclipse Bay. Nick Harte should know - his family's legendary feud with the Madisons fueled the local gossip mill for years before finally cooling off. But people are still talking - and rumor has it Nick's involved with someone new....

Art gallery owner Octavia Brightwell doesn't take chances - especially on handsome, charming men. But that's only part of the reason why she turned Nick down six times before - finally - agreeing to a date. Octavia's related to the woman who sparked the long-time family feud - and fears that falling hard for Nick would only ignite the flames again. Octavia knows her family's past is best kept hidden. But her secret isn't safe in Eclipse Bay - and neither is her heart.

Surprise, Surprise

I had not read the Eclispe Bay books for some reason they just didn't grab me as Krentz's over books had. But after I listened to this one I have since purchased the others in the series thru audio. Sitll not my favorite story line but enjoyable.

The narration killed it for me

Any additional comments?

I couldn't finish this book. The story was too predictable and the I found the characters and the situation to be unbelievable. The voices of the characters were irritating, especially the child's voice. The main female character sounded like she was about 80 years old. I am usually not too picky about books and tend to see them through, but I couldn't get over the voice issues.

Somewhat Fragmented

The first 2 books in the series were better but this was OK, Joyce Bean saves the day with her performance but the story was rather fragmented.
The one thing I really do not like about any of the Krentz books is her Subliminal Advertising for Vegetarian lifestyle, it really gets annoying after a while because all her "hunky men" never even eat a hamburger and it is unrealistic to think the world is all vegetarian or vegan.

Story light but fun

Wasn't impressed with narrator. Voices didn't match the characters main character sounded like an old lady. Old guys sounded odd
