THE RED BIKINI
This California romance with surfers as heroes will tug your heartstrings hard! The plot grabs readers and sweeps them right through to the finish. This is a great debut and a fantastic start to a series.
When Giselle McCabe brings her daughter to stay for a week at her sister’s California beach cottage, she is definitely not looking to join the surfer set. Her marriage has just crumbled, and she is trying desperately to pull herself together. She’s taking some pictures of the local surfers for a promotional brochure when she meets the famous, and surprisingly nice, Fin Hensen. He’s only in town for a week, but so is she. They resolve to enjoy a light, and chaste, friendship, but one kiss does them in. She’s a proper woman with a 5-year-old in tow, and he’s a globe-trotting surfer bum. Could this ever work?
