Fiercely self-sufficient and totally devoted to raising her five-year-old son, Jack, Joy Lee has no time for men. She loves her job as recreation director at Cooper’s Charm RV Resort and with its eclectic mix of down-to-earth people, especially her best-friend-in-the-making camp store manager Maris Kennedy, the resort is the perfect place to raise a little boy. But Joy didn’t count on Royce Nakirk, the town’s new drive-in owner, turning her life upside down—and she definitely didn’t plan to fall in love. Maris, as driven and as self-sufficient as Joy, didn’t plan to find love either, but when she and Joy challenge each other to take a risk, the results are far more rewarding than either had expected.
VERDICT Two women with unsettling backgrounds bond as sisters-of-the-heart in a sexy, heartwarming, down-home tale that features two captivating love stories, along with some critical backstory issues. A funny and engaging addition to the series that skillfully walks the line between romance and women’s fiction. Foster (Driven to Distraction) lives in central Ohio.
