Return to Carmel (Seaside Dreams & Wishing Wells Book 1) by Kel Summers
Will a return to a childhood memory be her second chance at love and happiness? Madison Harlow burned all her boats when she moved her life to Carmel-by-the-Sea, a charming coastal California town. Dealing with a nasty divorce and grieving the death of her father, she has no idea how she’s going to pick up the shattered pieces of her life. What she does know is that a fresh start, far away from her ex to a place like Carmel, feels like exactly what she needs to mend her broken life. Surrounded by colorful beach houses, with sand underfoot and a collection of eccentric and quirky characters for neighbors, Carmel could have been the perfect picture of tranquility for Madison. However, carrying on her father’s dream of turning an old mansion into a charming bed and breakfast is quickly overshadowed by the challenges she faces. Not least of which is the handsome yet maddening developer who has his own plans for the old mansion. Jackson Boone is as brooding as they come, leaving Madison torn between wanting to throw a hammer at him in frustration or wanting to pull him close for a kiss. Which will she decide? Come meet the charming folks of Carmel-by-the-Sea and lose yourself in a tale of new beginnings, unresolved pasts, and the power of healing love.
