Summary: Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have inherited Bishops Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit—only then will they own it. A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic. Out of work and in a bad place personally, a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful. There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop the sisters from succeeding. Among them are Peytons contentious cousins, who are outraged that they didnt inherit the resort, as well as a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property. Its soon apparent to Peyton that their efforts are being sabotaged, but she refuses to let the threats scare her—until shes nearly killed. She calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. He saved her life once; he can do it again? ~ powells.com
Review: I love Julie Garwood. I think that it’s pretty clear because year after year I read her newest novel knowing full well what will happen. Sometimes I get a warm fuzzy feeling watching love blossom before my eyes. Sometimes those very same eyes seem permanently rolled to the top of my head as I have a hard time believing or accepting this perfect love. Hotshot was all about the warm fuzzy feeling.
