When a workaholic
graphic designer and a handsome pastor meet at a funeral on the tropical island
of Mimosa Key, an unexpected attraction surfaces.
But the timing isn’t
right for either of them.
Andrea (Andi) Morgan is
working toward a promotion to art director of a lifestyle magazine in Minnesota
when she is called to Florida for the funeral of her mother’s significant
other. She takes a three-day funeral leave and is surprised to learn that her
mother has dementia and can no longer live in the house alone.
Andi is torn between
work and family, and is overwhelmed by the items on her to-do list that need to
be done in three days.
Matthew (Matt) Cooke,
assistant pastor at Hope Presbyterian Church, is the bearer of bad news for
both the funeral and her mother’s health condition. But he redeems himself with
carefully chosen words and his comforting touch settles into all the right
places as he helps Andi navigate the process of moving her mother into a memory
Andi extends her family
leave for another week and the connection between them grows. She is also able
to begin repairing the relationship with her mother, who she hasn’t
seen in four years.
But behind his seemingly
perfect exterior, Matt carries a secret that he waits too long to reveal to
Andi for fear that she won’t want him. He looks for the right time, but
something always comes up. She learns from the gossipy church secretary that he
has a 10-year-old daughter. He never married the mother, who he’d known since
high school, and he shares that it was the ultimate act of grace that the
church membership installed him as assistant pastor even with his past.
Although she is shocked
at the news, Andi is less upset about the fact that he has a daughter and more
concerned that he didn’t trust her enough to share the information. And just
when she thinks things couldn’t get worse, the art director promotion is given
to someone else in her absence. To top it off, her mother doesn’t remember her
when she goes to play bingo with her and all seems lost.
But Andi has a change of
heart when she receives much-needed words of wisdom from the church secretary
and sees Matt practicing softball with his daughter. She decides to stay in
Mimosa Key, start her own freelance graphic design business and put family
before her career.
What she saw as an
interruption in her life a week ago has turned out to be so much more: a
repaired relationship with her mother, a God-loving man and a little girl she
could look forward to building a future with.
“Dex” Dexter has been undercover so long, and so deep, that even he can’t
separate the real Dex from his cover story anymore. A week in Barefoot Bay
would sound like paradise to anyone else, but to Dex it sounds like way too
much time to spend alone with his own thoughts, until he meets Amelia Barton,
then he thinks it might not be enough time.
Barton had her whole life planned out like she plans a recipe for one of her
decadent cakes, but somewhere along the she got seriously off track. When a
cheating fiancée is exposed she decides to take her dream honeymoon alone.
Barefoot Bay feels more like home to her than she’s ever felt in the rural
Alaska. And then there’s the sexy cop who seems unsure whether he wants to pull
her closer, or keep her at arm’s length.
Amelia knows which one she wants him to do.
Dex’s cover is blown and the drug cartel follows him to Barefoot Bay, Amelia is
suddenly a target. Dex is determined to keep her safe, but the only way he can
see to do that is by keeping her away from him. Amelia has finally found the
recipe for her sweet life, but can she convince Dex that their love is worth
Tracking down leads to his
partner’s murder was all that mattered to Detective Noah Donavan, and finding
Marco Talarico was his number one priority. When his captain makes him
take vacation or face suspension, Noah uses the time to do some sleuthing in
Barefoot Bay, the location of his suspect.
Luciana Talarico has been
dreaming of making a name for herself her entire life. When her new business
idea finals in the Golden Ticket Contest, she can’t get out of New York fast
enough–saying goodbye to her dead end job and her overbearing family.
Too bad her dead beat brother picks that moment to get into
trouble—again! If that weren’t enough, running head first into Noah is a
distraction her heart wants but could ruin everything.
Noah uses his connections in
Barefoot Bay to go undercover. Using Marco’s sister, Luciana isn’t the
best idea he’s ever had but it’s the only one he’s got. Too bad she’s
everything he could hope for and more. When the two meet the sparks fly,
but with so much at risk for both of them, will they give in to their hearts?
Fans love PERFECT
MATCH, the TV reality show taped at Barefoot Bay that guarantees soul mates a
happy ever after.
Harper Ward, the
brainiac girl geek developer of a high-tech matchmaking protocol that rocketed
PERFECT MATCH to the top of TV reality show ratings, believes her technology is
foolproof. After all, every couple matched so far is married, engaged or

one of the youngest and wealthiest tech moguls in the world, it’s a chance for
Harper to pitch her secret project, Virtual Cupid—the innovative dating app she
hopes to take public.
But when Harper hits
enter and the program spits out the name of Luke’s ideal match, it’s
immediately apparent there’s been some kind of mistake. She’s five hundred
percent certain she removed her personal data after the beta testing phase, so
why is she Luke’s perfect match? As Harper desperately tries to recalculate and
recalibrate, it’s not just her technology that’s at risk of crashing…but also
