"A good romance"
In Trinity Harbor, Virginia Jenna Kennedy, the daughter
in Pennington and Sons, desperately needs the waterfront
renovation contract. She obsessively thirsts to prove to
her chauvinistic family that she is not a loser who messes
up everything. That is why she told no one about her
scheme to place a carousal horse on the lawn of the
homeowner who also owns the waterfront property.
Gourmet chef Bobby Spencer wants nothing to do with the
gorgeous single mother who demands he contract with her to
renovate his waterfront property. However, when someone
steals the antique horse Bobby cannot resist her
vulnerability. He helps a disconsolate Jenna with finding
the horse before her family accuses her of another reckless
screw-up. As they search together, they begin to fall in
love, but both have been burned once and so are twice as
shy when it comes to relationships.
ASK ANYONE who enjoys amusing contemporary romances as
to who is worth reading and Sherryl Woods will appear on
most lists. The return of characters from ABOUT THAT MAN
adds depth so that the audience better understands the lead
couple, especially Bobby. He struggles with his feelings
for supermom-business mogul wannabe Jenna, a person that
would search the Afghanistan caves for Bin Laden if given
the assignment. This is an admirable trait yet at times
irritate the audience. Still Ms. Woods provides a very
amusing return to Trinity Bay that will leave fans
anxiously awaiting the future tale of Bobby's older brother.
