Love in Dublin and Secrets at Seaside

Love in Dublin


You definitely learn something new every day even from a romance novel.  Ireland really doesn’t want their residents to divorce.  Poor Colin and their kids for having to wait that long.

Then Maggie, being widowed so young.  Wow!  I love how she tried to continue their work.

Love can heal most wounds.  Maggie thought all she was doing was showing Colin how to have a little fun and spontaneity in his life, but she never though he was teaching her how to love again.

This was  such a wonderful book.  I could hear Colin’s accent every time he “talked”.  I would love all the McKinnon’s to finally reunite.  Maybe all the women in their lives will make that happen one day.


36251609Single father Colin McKinnon has roots and obligations that have kept him firmly in Dublin his entire life. He once planned to explore the world, but he was bound by duty and gave up on his dreams long ago. When he meets free-spirited American travel writer Maggie in a pub, he’s intrigued. She could help him get a taste of what he lost, rattle the chains of his self-imposed isolation. Instantly drawn to her light, beauty, and sense of adventure, Colin can’t stay away.

Maggie Spencer doesn’t just crave the open road, she needs it to survive. After a harrowing accident and life-changing loss, she rebuilt her life by exploring new places on her own. When she accepts a temporary job writing about day tours in Ireland, she falls in love with Dublin and the man she teaches to explore it. Through their daily adventures, they learn opposites do more than just attract—they can also help each other heal.

But can a man with deep roots keep a woman with wings by his side?


Secrets at Seaside



After so many books, we finally get the fully story on Amy and Tony.

I always knew there had to be more to them than just the unrequited love and fun flirtatious summer friend thing they made us believe they had.  But I never thought their secret could be so heartbreaking.

Time and communication can maybe not heal all wounds, but perhaps lessen the hurt enough to let the love come through again and let it thrive.

I love the friends of this seaside community.  It has been a wonderful summer spent with them.  I wonder what a Christmas at Seaside would be like.



35421334Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends!

Secrets at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance novel Seaside Secrets. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed–at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past–and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.
