Product Description

Product Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood returns with a novel of family drama, suspense, and—of course—romance.

Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have inherited Bishop’s Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit—only then will they own it.

A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic. Out of work and in a bad place personally, a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful.

There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop the sisters from succeeding. Among them are Peyton’s contentious cousins, who are outraged that they didn’t inherit the resort, as well as a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property.

It’s soon apparent to Peyton that their efforts are being sabotaged, but she refuses to let the threats scare her—until she’s nearly killed. She calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. He saved her life once; he can do it again.

Julie’s previous two titles, The Ideal Man and Sweet Talk, both debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.

3.0 out of 5 stars More tepid than hot.. 12 Aug 2013
By Cheryl M-M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Hmm I didn't think this book was up to par. Garwood usually delivers a tighter plot with decent character development and fairly good sense of humour.
This lacked all of the above.
I wonder if the fact that this book tries to bring the topic of sexual harassment in the workplace to the forefront, played a role in those factors or the lack thereof. Perhaps Garwood was trying to give it a more serious tone.
That might have worked if some of the scenarios hadn't seemed implausible.
Things like a someone managing to find the heroine on a highway in a snowstorm despite her leaving at least a few hours ahead of him or the glaringly obvious 'mysterious' vandal. I won't even go into the tripe Peyton swallows about not being allowed to file a complaint about the harassment.
Overall it was the inkling of a serious topic packed into the folds of a fluffy marshmallow read.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still take it or leave it. 11 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Julie where is the punch of your early books, this did not grab me at all.
Sisters inheriting a resort and trying to bring it all together within a year, enter the F.B.I. in the form of "Fin" who falls in love with "Peyton" one of the sisters who is in some danger.
The storyline struggled and was flat and not very believable.
I still read J.G. early novels over and over but her latest contemporaries do nothing for me, the best thing about this one is the book cover at least someone got that right.
If you want a fantastic J.G. try--The Bride--Saving Grace--The prize, or any of her early works most of these medieval. The only contemporary I would recommend would be --Heartbreaker--now that one I did like.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did Julie Garwood actually write this novel? 6 Aug 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Julie Garwood is a ridiculously talented writer. Her novels are always tightly written with snappy dialogue and are carefully plotted. This novel had none of those elements. I really wanted to like this novel because I am a fan of Julie's work. But, I'm just shaking my head and wondering whether she had a ghostwriter for this novel, she got a new editor or if she's just having an off year. Having read everything she's written- this just didn't "feel" like a Julie Garwood novel. It had none of the complexity she usually crafts into her characters or settings, and at times seemed even a little ham-handed and rushed with the descriptions (which is so not her style). Since when is a Julie Garwood heroine this silly or her hero this over-the-top brooding? Since NEVER. It had an overall "cluttered" feeling and there were also some pretty big plot holes. I kept thinking all the way through that I just didn't hear her signature writing style in the novel at all. While it wasn't a bad story by regular romance novel wasn't a Julie Garwood romantic suspense. I'm still going to buy her novels the first day they come out, as she has mighty laurels to rest on prior to this clunker, but I was really disappointed by this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very contrived and silly- not up to Julie Garwood's standards 10 Aug 2013
By Carole - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Julie Garwood's stories are usually very good and fun to read. This one is not. It is very contrived (the bad people are ridiculously bad, there are always more than one person committing the same type of crime that could be "the bad guy" - just unlikely, unbelievable plot lines. That takes the enjoyment out of it because you spend time being disappointed at the silliness instead of enjoying the story. While I expect fiction to be fiction, I don't enjoy stories where the author hasn't put any effort into making it somewhat believable. It had potential but doesn't meet it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Julie Garwood's standards 7 Aug 2013
By Andalso - Published on
I think Julie Garwood is one of the finest romance writers in print. She's one of my all time favorites. However, this book is a mess. It is so disjointed, it reads like her editor was on vacation. I honestly had to force myself to finish it. Definitely not a keeper. My advice--check it out of the library if you want to read it. Julie Garwood is still at the top of my list; even the best writers are entitled to a clunker now and then.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did Julie Garwood Write This Book???? 9 Aug 2013
By kathleenkritique - Published on
It appears that if Julie Garwood even wrote this book, she never got passed her outline. With more time spent on writing, editing and character development, this could have been a good summer read. The story does not flow, it is just chunks of info strung together, as if it were a romance text book. The author ushers the reader through every description, interlude and exchange. The characters have sex so fast it had to have been as painful for Peyton to have as it was for me to read. I have never been so rushed through a book in my life! Just when you start to enjoy an exchange the author quickly pushes you to the next part of the story. Where were the editors? Where was the author? For Shame!!! Can I get my money back?

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Garwood 6 Aug 2013
By Alenya - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
"Hotshot" is classic of Garwoods' contemporary romantic/suspense stories. Her hero is an overachiever, alpha male, type A personality. Her heroine is sweet, honest, smart and in trouble.
The offer of a dream job which seems too good to be true, fast becomes a nightmare for Peyton as her new boss turns out to be a sexual predator with her as his next target.
She calls her childhood hero turned FBI agent, for advice on how to get evidence against him so he can't do this to any other women, and just as he was there for her when she was a little girl; Finn comes to her aid again.
The storyline is "busy"; lot's going on at the same time. Garwood juggles the different lines and multiple secondary characters like the pro she is.
As always, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and will 're-read it, more slowly this time through. I tend to drop everything and devour her latest book as soon as I get my hot little hands on it.
I'm a sucker for her sense of humor, but even more for a happy ending!
As always, Julie Garwood delivers!!
