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…
Phoenix is recovering from a brutal robbery and attack that occurred at her work. The men were never caught, leaving a deeper sense of insecurity. In an attempt to get her life back on track, she accepts a landscaping job at Cooper’s Charm, an RV resort. She settles into her life and is beginning to feel like her old self (with a little help from Coop). Unfortunately, her safety is being compromised. Someone has been sneaking around her cabin and has even locked her in the maintenance shed. Are these all coincidences or is her life in danger once again?
Cooper is the owner of the RV resort and is immediately attracted to Phoenix. Having researched her background before interviewing her, he’s aware of the brutal attack she went through and wants to protect her. Coop is a widow and is not sure that a relationship is in the cards for him, but there is a mutual attraction between him and Phoenix that he is willing to explore.
Cooper’s Charm by Lori Foster is the perfect summer/weekend read: fun, fast paced, and steamy. This book is jam packed with sultry scenes, innuendo and intelligent characters. I loved the secondary characters in this book and look forward to getting to know them better in the upcoming novels.
By the way, did I mention anything about the dog? Add a cute dog to any story and I’m hooked. Charming and charismatic, Sugar adds another level of wholesomeness to the story that I loved.
Thanks to Harlequin Publishing for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
