When all you hold dear is taken away . . .
When a hurricane roars through Lacey Armstrong's home on the coast of Barefoot Bay, she decides all that remains in the rubble is opportunity. A new hotel is just what Mimosa Key needs, and Lacey and her teenage daughter are due for a fresh start. And nothing, especially not a hot, younger architect, is going to distract Lacey from finally making her dreams a reality.
A second chance is the only thing you have left.
Love has already cost Clay Walker everything. And if he's going to have any chance of picking up the pieces of his life, he needs the job as Lacey Armstrong's architect. What's not in the plans is falling for the headstrong beauty. Her vision of the future is more appealing than anything he could have ever drafted for himself. Will Clay's designs on Lacey's heart be more than she can handle, or will she trust him to build something that will last forever?
Lacey Armstrong moves forward after a hurricane destroys her home, and she gets more than she bargained for when she's on the hunt for an architect to design her dream B&B.
I really liked Ms. St. Claire's first foray into contemporary romance, though at times I felt frustrated by Lacey's behavior. I was also distracted by Clay Walker, the country singer --
who kept intruding into my mind's picture of Clay Walker, the character, but that's a minor quibble, I suppose.
I loved Lacey's core group of girlfriends. I'm glad each one has a set purpose and reason for being in her life.
Barefoot in the Sand is a great summer read (or end of summer read)!
