Skye Alexander, manager of the Crescent Cove Colony, wonders if it isn’t time to leave the place. Her former boyfriend, who is also a real estate agent, is all for her selling it. It’s difficult because it’s a part of her, but a part that’s been tainted by violence. She refuses to share the incident with anyone, but instead draws deeper into herself. Her only outreach is the letters she exchanges with her childhood friend, Gage Lowell.
Gage decides after crawling out of hell alive that he could use a vacation. No place better than Crescent Cove, which would give him a chance to see his family and see Skye. Only Skye’s letters got him through the dark times. He wanted to tell her this. The distant woman hiding behind oversized men’s clothing was not the Skye from his letters. Gage is determined to figure out the why behind Skye’s transformation.
Something isn’t right about Crescent Cove. Mysterious break-ins are the first hint. Skye and Gage work together to discover the culprits and find themselves stumbling into love. Is it the spell of No. 9 Cabin? Gage is on his way back overseas, which is something neither one of them can afford to forget.
The Love Shack moves fairly well. It bogs down with a sub-plot of another romance that just felt like filler to me. The secondary characters are charming. It probably would have been helpful to read the previous two books to know their stories. There’s plenty of heat between the pages and some tenderness too. Parts of the book, I found far-fetched. I’ll let you be the judge if you are willing to believe.
The Love Shack is a suspenseful contemporary romance. It is good tale, worth reading. It won’t keep you up all night turning pages, but those types of books are rare in my experience.
