Description:


Ali Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she's a thief, and now she's about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who's as sexy as he is stern....

After a high-profile case goes wrong, Luke Hanover returns to his hometown for some peace and quiet. Instead he finds a bombshell brunette in a heap of trouble. As he helps Ali put her world back together, the pieces of Luke's own life finally seem to fall into place. Is this the start of a sizzling fling? Or are Luke and Ali on the brink of something big in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

My Thoughts: 

Ali is having a very bad day when her boyfriend Ted Marshall dumps her via text messaging, leaving her in a house that the lease ran out on and where she comes face to face with Luke Hanover the homeowner who has returned to Lucky Harbor hoping to escape and spend some time alone.  What he finds is a very angry Ali Winters who is in the middle of a temper tantrum on the voice mail of her dirt bag ex-boyfriend.

When Ali's life falls apart the one person who seems to be in the middle of it all is Luke Hanover who is throwing himself into her money theft issue.  He is determined to figure out who stole the money Ali's being accused of stealing.  Through the course of this investigation we learn alot about Luke and his demons and Ali and her childhood and how she deals with things.

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more!
