Claire Turner finally has everything she wants. A successful business, a small bungalow near the beach, and the camaraderie of her two best friends. She’s successful and independent—something she would never have thought possible before her husband’s midlife crisis and their subsequent divorce.
When a rival business opens across the street, Claire worries that she could lose everything she’s worked for. Her entire sense of self-worth is tied up in her bakery and café, Sandcastles, and she suddenly finds herself taking desperate measures to make sure she doesn’t lose business to the newcomer. Surprise! The business is owned by the guy Claire had a crush on as a teenager. Now he’s a grown man and there’s still an attraction, if only he wasn’t running a rival business. Is Claire overreacting? Her friends think it’s possible, but will they be able to talk her off the ledge before she does something drastic?

Each book in this series can be read as a standalone story. There are no cliffhanger endings and every story is wrapped up at the end. There are recurring characters that appear in all the books though, so it’s more fun if you read from the beginning to get to know the characters as they navigate life’s path.
