Life comes full circle for Maggie. Fifteen years ago she thought she met "the one" and the last thing he said was "I’ll call you." He never did so she moved on. Now, divorced and determined to recover from the mess her life has turned into, who does she see coming out of the surf but Gabe, the one who never called. This should be interesting.
Gabe thinks of Maggie often. If he hadn’t had his luggage stolen, with her number in it, they might have had a life together. After years of looking for her via the net and searches, he can’t believe his luck when she’s sitting on the beach right in front of him. This time, he’s not going to lose her.
One small incident changed two lives forever. It seems like destiny that they reconnect where they met all those years ago. Once the misunderstanding of Gabe not calling is cleared up, Maggie tentatively engages in what she considers a holiday fling. But when things get too intense, she makes a run for it. But this time, Gabe knows how to find her, and even though she’s afraid of losing herself in another man, she’ll find that Gabe was the right one all along.
The story line was cute and original. How many times have we heard that line? While I was able to connect with Maggie, I just wasn’t feeling Gabe. Another reader might, but I didn’t. I also was a little disappointed in the emotional intensity of the read. After 15 years, I expected more urgency than I got from Gabe. A good read if you are looking for an escape into a tropical paradise.
