Welcome back to Black Dog Bay. Brighton Smith is calm collected dependable and shall we suggest boring? That is until her carefully planned life goes horribly off track and sends her running to her college pal Kira and a chance meeting with local bad boy Jake takes her life in a direction she never intended, but she must choose between playing it safe and following her heart. Kendrick once again takes us to Black Dog bay and makes us want to stay. Love the town and her characters hope to make many more visits. A great read for the beach or on a day when you really wish you were at the beach. Warm, witty fun and moving all at once.
