"Cooper’s Charm" was an easy read that I enjoyed. It started out slow but eventually picked up. You get point of views from Cooper, Phoenix, her sister, Ridley and Baxter. Each dealing with their own stuff and heartache. Each undergoing a healing of sorts due to the relationships they form. When danger lurks in thier mist they must band together to figure out what’s going on, before someone gets hurt for good.
I love the relationship between Phoenix and her sister. Even though Ridley is three years older than Phoenix they still have a close bond. Their love for each other knows no bounds and it was great to see that connection. Cooper dealing with the loss of his wife and what that means for him in the years to come was just heart wrenching. Baxter telling his story about his first serious relationship took great courage on his part. That situation would affect a lot of people differently.
Each of these characters brought life to "Cooper’s Charm" and I was very glad to meet them. They suffered and have known loss, but they also have known happiness and a chance at a future. Let’s not forget Sugar, she was just too adorable for words.
One summer, two sisters and a chance to start over…
Before the burglary that shattered her confidence, Phoenix Rose had a fiancé, a successful store and a busy, happy existence. After months spent adrift, she takes a job at the lakeside resort of Cooper’s Charm. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, friendly colleagues and a charismatic, widowed boss, Phoenix is slowly inching her way back into the world.
Visiting Cooper’s Charm to check up on her little sister, Ridley Rose impulsively agrees to fill in as housekeeper. Still reeling from an ego-bruising divorce, she finds satisfaction in a job well done—and in the attention of the resort’s handsome scuba instructor.
For Phoenix and Ridley, Cooper’s Charm is supposed to be merely temporary. But this detour may lead to the place they most need to be, where the future is as satisfying as it is surprising…
