A sexy and soul-stirring novel about love, family, and rediscovering what matters most by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe We Will.
When workaholic Boston attorney Deirdra de Messiéres is passed over for a well-deserved promotion, she takes a two-month hiatus to show her boss just how much he needs her and heads home to Silver Island. But beyond seeing her sisters happy, home is not where Deirdra’s heart is. She has no interest in their family restaurant, the Bistro, or reliving hurtful childhood memories, and absolutely no interest in spending a single second with Josiah “Jagger” Jones, the Bistro’s too-laid-back musician and chef. Sure, the hippie is hot, but he drives her nuts. The guy lives in a van with his dog, and he can’t even commit to a solid work schedule. To make matters worse, he’s always around. She needs to get off the island, stat.
Jagger has overcome his own personal trials to place stock in life’s pleasures: family, friends, peace…and if he has his way, one positively beautiful, absolutely uptight attorney. Jagger knows he’s the perfect person to help Deirdra deal with her hurtful past and find her way back to being happy.
A chance encounter leads to deep conversation, and night after liberating night, Deirdra lets down her guard. But neither is long for Silver Island. Free-spirited Jagger has wanderlust, and Deirdra has a career to return to. They’re on different paths, and plans for a future together don’t stand a chance. But when has anything gone according to plan?
This is the third book in the Silver Harbor series but all three could be read as standalones.
Having already seen her sisters Abbie and Cait fall in love Deidra ‘Didi’ de Messiéres is still a workaholic. When she gets passed over for promotion and takes a 2 month’s hiatus she finally realises there’s more to life than work. Deidra sees how much she has been missing out on with her sisters and her friends. She realises she wants to be more involved in their lives. It was really lovely to see Deidra want to spend more time with her family.
Jagger aka Hippie has had his eye on Deidra since they first met but Didi is not interested in someone so laid back and without a plan. I loved seeing Didi and Jagger open up to each other. For Didi to realise how much she actually likes Jagger despite how different their outlook on life is.
This is a story about letting go of the hurt and the anger, about healing and enjoying life with the people you love. If you’re looking for a story set on a beautiful island with lots of romantic moments then this book is definitely for you.
