Summary

In the tender, heartwarming tradition of Nicholas Sparks, this compelling novel of two strangers in a small coastal town marks a romantic tour de force for internationally best-selling author Davis Bunn.

He had not come all this way just to break another woman's heart.

When Connor Larkin boards a late-night bus in downtown LA, he's not sure where he's going or what he's looking for. Putting his acting career - and his fiancée - on hold, he's searching for something he can't define, a part of himself he lost on the road to success. Once he dreamed of being a singer in the classic style of Sinatra and Bennett. But his lean good looks soon landed him in movies as the sexy bad guy - and in the arms of a famous young heiress. Now, with his wedding day approaching, Connor finds himself stepping into the sleepy seaside town of Miramar Bay - where one remarkable woman inspires him to rethink all of his choices.

She needed to know his secrets, and to see if he'd tell her the truth.

Sylvie Cassick is nothing like the pretentious starlets back in Hollywood. The daughter of a nomadic painter, she's had to work hard for everything - unlike Connor's fiancée. When Connor hears familiar music drifting out of Sylvie's restaurant, he feels as if he's finally come home. Sylvie isn't sure what to think when this impossibly handsome stranger applies for a waiter's job. Yet once he serenades her customers - and slowly works his way into her heart - she realizes there's more to him than he's letting on. And Connor realizes he's found his destiny. But as the outside world encroaches, threatening their fragile bond, Connor will have to risk losing everything to gain the life he longs for and be the man Sylvie deserves.

Filled with bittersweet longing, Miramar Bay is an unforgettable journey through doubt and desire - to the truth that can be discovered along the road less taken.

Not my favorite book<br />

I didn't like the writer's assumption that the mother was wrong for leaving.
The family seem to me to have some definite marital problems.
There was a very selfish husband who refused to compromise.
The teenage daughter idolize her Dad and she took her dad's side.
Frankly, it this wasn't part of group selection for discussion,I would have returned the book.
The writing was fine technical ly. well done, but it was the thesis I rejected.

Very good

I wasn't sure about this story, I had never read or listened to any stories by this author. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I did like this story, I hope this is the start of a series,

No Tension

If I wanted a story about small-town people with ordinary lives I'd find a quilting circle. The antagonist, Conner, may be an up and comer in Hollywood but I doubt actors offered a James Bond role are quite so puzzled about what they want in life. Poor. Pitiful. Boring. Conner. The most interesting character is the female bartender. This novel has no depth. The characters are boring. Adults talk to each other like they are talking to children. Lots of tell not much show. Not one of these people ever curses. These characters are not real at all.
