When handsome Jack Brandon drops his address book in an airport and is in too much of a hurry to notice, Sara Hart, the owner of a fledgling start-up deli, decides to pay him a favor and return it. Since his office is near her restaurant, she delivers it in person.
Jack is surly and treats her with suspicion. Though Sarah is disgusted with him, he stirs up latent desires within her.
When Jack and his partner, Conner, unwittingly show up at her deli, Jack still acts angry. Conner has no such qualms and asks her out.
They become friends and Conner urges her to take diving lessons. Trying to overcome her fears (her parents drowned), Sara begins taking diving classes. When Conner goes away for business, Jack steps into help instruct. While Sara and Conner can’t seem to agree on anything, they have undeniable chemistry.
While Sara battles her fears, Jack battles his guilt (his fiance died while diving). Both are forced to deal with their internal battles. But can they heal enough to embark on a future together?
Turtle Soup is an interesting story. I enjoyed learning about diving and reef conservation. I also liked Sara’s initiative and her soups! An enjoyable read.
Sea turtles may be endangered but after an encounter with marine biologist, Jack Brandon, nothing will stop Sara Hart from naming her deli Turtle Soup.
When Jack takes a job at the nearby Georgia Aquarium, Sara finds the environmental poster boy at her door, hungry and carrying a chip on his shoulder.
Neither thinks the other has what it takes, until a scuba class reveals what lies beneath the surface. It will take food, friends, and a little help from Mother Nature, to help them see that making a difference isn’t all numbers and glory.
It must begin with love.
