Never does he imagine that by going, his life will be changed drastically and he’ll never be the same again. What happens to Alec while staying in Wilmington Beach? Does he ever get over his writer’s block?
I just loved this second novel in the Covington Cove series. Right from the start, Ms. Moran pulled me into her storyline and characters. I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing the first book in the series, so I was extremely eager to read this book as well. I loved Alec and I totally felt bad that he was suffering so long with his writer’s block. I had hoped that something or even someone would be the catalyst for him to get his creative juices flowing again. I also loved getting to know Faith Armstrong, a person that would come to get to know Alec during his stay over the summer. I wanted there to be a connection between these two and without giving any spoilers away to the storyline, all I can say is the author told a fantastic story. A wonderful bonus was the characters from the first book were in this book too, so we get to see what they were presently up to in this latest story. Overall, I loved this book and would highly recommend it. I strongly suggest you read both books so you can fully enjoy this series. Well done, Ms. Moran!

For ten months, bestselling novelist Alec Winston hasn’t been able to type a single word, and he’s coming dangerously close to breaching his publishing contract. An invitation from his brother to spend the summer in Wilmington Beach might be just the thing to blast through his writer’s block. Yet Alec discovers more than a spark of inspiration on the sunny sands. He meets an amber-eyed muse who makes him think about much more than books . . .
Faith Armstrong has finally gathered the courage to leave her past behind and accepted a job as a private tutor, hoping for a fresh start on the North Carolina coast. This is the home she’s always longed for—not just a place, but a state of mind. She’s felt invisible her whole life, so the host of new friends and the attention of a sexy author have her head spinning.
But Alec has a secret that could prove this isn’t the life Faith dreamed of after all . . .
