My rating: 4 of 5 gargoyles
This was another sweet book from Ms. Seaton. I enjoyed getting to see the hero/heroine from the first Half-Moon Bay book in passing to confirm that they’re still happy with each other.
I think, for me, the most enjoyable part of the book was the complementary artistic styles that Sienna and Jack had, though it took some time for them (or at least her) to realize it. And Jack’s grand gesture at the end…wow. Love the man.
Sienna – she’s had some hard slaps at her handed in her life, but none like what she experiences in this book. From losing her chance to buy the gallery (thanks to Jack) to having to face the mother who’s never done more than ask for money from her…she keeps getting more and more thrust at her. Yet, like a truly strong (without having to be kick-butt) woman, she rises above it and keeps focusing on her goal (her art exhibit), Yes, she’s drawn (and annoyed) by Jack, but she never stops chasing her dream even when she gets temporarily distracted by the bomb her mother lays on her.
Jack – he’s never wanted to be a business man, but he’s good at it for when he’s needed to be. Now, though, he wants to focus on his art and as he tries, he runs into Sienna and learns he can be both business man and artist. She’s incredibly good for him and him for her.
Definitely a lovely read and highly recommendable.
