Publisher's Weekly Review

Ramsey (The Bride Next Door) mixes a tasty cocktail of sweet and sexy in this heartfelt launch of the Moonlight Bay series. After being left a fortune by a rich grandfather she never met, Jenna Fossey heads to the seaside town of Magnolia Harbor, S.C. She's hoping to find clues about her father, who died in a sailing accident before she was born, and to make connections with her late grandfather's brother. She feels it's wise to hide until she knows how her great-uncle feels about her being the sole heir, so she takes a fake last name and moves into a charming cottage behind the town's elegant B&B. Longing to experience what her father loved about sailing, Jenna hires local boat charter entrepreneur Jude St. Pierre to teach her to sail. Jude's devoted to saving his family's land from resort developers and preserving the Gullah heritage of his forefathers. As the lessons continue, Jude and Jenna forge a powerful connection that could rip apart both their lives when Jenna's secret is revealed. Ramsey's expert characterization (particularly with the multilayered hero and heroine), entertaining cast of secondary characters, and well-tuned plot will make readers long for a return trip to Magnolia Harbor.
