Starlight Harbor’s Sweetheart has had enough… Lyra Grigor is the easy going, sweet, smile-at-everyone owner of The Sweetest Things. When an annoying travel site puts Starlight Harbor on their Top Ten Tacky Tiny Towns list for the fourth year running, she knows it’s time to give the writer a bit of spicy tart instead of a teaspoon of sugar. An outsider who just wants out… Spence Côte has no idea what hit his site. Nearly a thousand replies on some little baker’s comment and everything has blown up. Since the site is up for sale, it couldn’t have happened at a worse time. Now he has to drive up to the middle of nowhere coast of Maine and get this resolved. ASAP. Two worlds collide… Between the puppies dressed as pirates, the older women masquerading as tavern wenches, and the sweetest little baker he’s ever seen, Spence knows Starlight Harbor might not just be freakishly adorable….it might be what he’d been looking for.
When Darren, Nikki and Larry sat around talking about selling everything, quitting their jobs and hitting the road deep down it was just something fun to talk about, not real. But when life gave them the opportunity to have such an adventure, they decided to go for it. Winnie, their RV, was their new addition to the family. Nikki and Darren had spent the last eight years being married and building a normal life including owning a mortgage or two, climbing the corporate ladder and preparing their life for a family. All but the last thing happened so they decided to talk about all the things they could do if they didnt have kids including travel. It was time to stop talking and starting doing. After 37 states, numerous breakdowns, Elvis sightings, the last Mardi gras before Hurricane Katrina, Appalachian Trail crossings and many other humorous encounters, they end up nearly a year later where they started with a new business and another addition to the family. The next adventure will be even greater than the last!
