RETURN TO PELICAN INN
RETURN TO PELICAN INN (3) by Dana Mentink: Rosa Franco was looking at the end of her design company when she wins a spot on a TV series about remodeling inns. Her inn is the Pelican Inn where she stayed for several years as a teenager. Returning means facing her past, especially then inn's owner's nephew, Pike, and their rocky history. Rosa and Pike will spend their time renovating the inn and examining their pasts, especially when Rosa's long-estranged father shows up, bringing with him more questions and very few answers. When feelings begin to develop between them, Rosa and Pike will learn that sometimes not knowing all the answers is not always a bad thing. Mentink's story is too scrambled that it is hard to get into and has a lot of stops and starts. Her characters are good, but not good enough to hold the plot together.
