Sweet Contemporary Romance
Rating: 3 Cups
Linda Morrison is relieved when a neighbor unexpectedly drops by to help cover her large picture window with plywood in preparation for the predicted hurricane.
Muscular Carlos Mejia had planned on a workout at the gym but instead found himself on Linda’s doorstep with an offer she could not refuse.
A recent divorcee wanting a fresh start, Linda recently moved to Florida and purchased a home in the small seaside town of Sleepy Cove. She is worried about the pending storm and is relieved and grateful when Carlos volunteers his services. With a cozy fire and candles chasing shadows in the darkened room and music softly playing on the radio, Linda and Carlos pass the time talking.
This sweet story entertained me though I was slightly put off when Carlos proposed the test for Linda. I felt the romantic element was strong already and the test just sort of lessened it. There was a delightful and obvious attraction between the couple, and I felt Linda’s character, in particular, was beautifully portrayed. This is a feel-good story that will leave you smiling.
