A Shore Thing
Title: A SHORE THING
Author: Julie Carobini
Publisher: Broadman and Holman
Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance
Callie Duflay has to have her causes. The rest of her family live white collar lives, but s he lives in a beach house and works at a camp with kids. When she discovers developers are planning to use the wildlife reserve in Otter Bay, Callie is instantly up in arms. She is going to stop this, one way or another.
Gage Mitchell is easygoing, eco-friendly and professional, but he’s not about to give up a job just because some local woman is angry about it. Not even if the angry woman is cute.
The two are at a stand-off, but they both have things in common. They care for creation and the environment, and they both defend what they believe in. But with them on opposite sides of the fence, will they ever be able to see the possibility of a relationship?
A SHORE THING is the second book in Ms. Carobini’s Otter Bay series, but it easily stands alone. I couldn’t help but care for Callie as she starts out by adopting a stray dog and her concern about nature was apparent, even when she got a bit aggressive. Gage is an out-and-out sweetheart. I fell in love with him from the moment he was introduced.
A SHORE THING touches on issues that are timely as more and more of our forest lands, or beach fronts, are being taken over by people. I was interested in who would win out over this issue, Callie or Gage, though I had my preferences. $14.99. 392 pages.
