Book Review: "Amazing Gracie" By Sherryl Woods
Three of Gracie MacDougal's last four boyfriends proposed marriage--to other women. But through all her heartbreaks, she has excelled at one thing--her job as a luxury hotel executive. Until she loses that, too. Now, one man stands between her and the old Victorian house she wants to transform into a bed and breakfast. And they're both about to discover that business is a lot more fun when it's mixed with the pleasure of love.
When Gracie MacDougal returns to Seagull Point, Virginia, seeking to reform her workaholic ways, she discovers more than relaxation. The picturesque town calls to her, as does the waterfront Victorian house she envisions as the perfect bed-and-breakfast. But one person stands between Gracie and her new goal…and he isn't budging.
Southern charmer Kevin Daniels isn't interested in selling Gracie's dream house, but he's definitely interested in something else…her. Enticing the uptight businesswoman into letting down her hair becomes his new mission in life, but beyond that? He already has way too many people depending on him, and has no intention of adding one more.
Gracie's not looking for a home. Kevin's not looking for a wife. But sometimes even the best intentions can wind up going wonderfully awry.
What a refreshing book. It doesn't come around too often where you can find a stand alone book. This one is, although if she wanted to, the author could make it into a series with the other characters being the focus.
What I liked about this book was the characters - I love being drawn into a book and feeling part of the story. It has been awhile since I have read a Sherryl Woods back and I missed her writing.
This was a nice quick read. Lots of smiles and good thoughts throughout the book.
