When Sarah Linden-Price arrives at a rental cabin in Maine, she has only one goal—to complete the promised photography project for her best friend and head back to Manhattan. Making friends isn’t part of the plan. But when a walk on the beach results in a mishap with a man and his dog, she’s surprised to discover they’re old acquaintances.
For Dean Jensen, the small town of St. Martin’s Cove is the perfect escape—and the perfect opportunity to keep his pen name a secret. He has no intention of moving back to New York City, and even less of falling in love. But then he reconnects with Sarah, and everything starts to change.
As Dean helps Sarah with her photography project, his feelings deepen beyond the youthful crush from their college days. But as her time in Maine winds down, they’re both left wondering what sacrifices their blossoming relationship is worth.
This is a very sweet novella by author Lucinda Whitney. It was a quick evening read for me and I really enjoyed the setting and the characters. Sarah and Dean reconnect after years and it was fun watching them find their way into a gentle romance after finding the base of friendship again.
The ocean, the storms (perfect for snuggling), the sunrises and the food all made for some pretty pictures in my head. There were lots of warm fuzzies to be had in this story! I need to visit Maine! But not in October. Maybe in the summer?
