It's still a sweet romantic read perfect for the beach.

Though this one wasn't my all-time favorite, it still was a really great novel.

you will wish you lived at Otter Bay by the time you get into this book. The people are delightful. Callie challenges us all to be more involved in the world around us. Her character grows through the book and the trip is worth taking. To spice things up, she meets Gage who starts out as her enemy. Their relationship is also a journey. It's nice to see how so many things that clash work their way to the end of the book. Some are very surprising and delightful.

Format: Paperback
Callie Duflay is a young woman who enjoys working as assistant camp director, and enjoys being involved in local causes. While walking the beach one day, Callie discovers that the Kitteridges are selling Otter Bay and it's being marked for development. She can't believe they would sell it, as they had promised the property to the town. Since then, the otters have returned and were rebuilding their lives. Callie decides she should do something about it, and starts a group to try to stop the development. For Gage the developer, everything is riding on this job and Callie could ruin it all for him. Callie believes she is doing the right thing, and so is Gage. But as time goes on, will they discover what the right thing really is?
"A Shore Thing" is a beautiful book about family, friendship, love, commitment, keeping promises, faith, and hope. It has some very good messages behind it, making it not only entertaining, but a book with values that gives you something you can take away with you long after you've finished.

Julie Carobini has been one of my favorite authors since her first novel Chocolate Beach, and A Shore Thing has risen to the top of my list. This "green" beachy read kept me engaged to the very end. I fell in love with the main character, Callie Duflay, and her quirky thoughts. At one point she says to herself, "If I could bend that way, I'd deliver my own swift kick to my behind." The story unfolds in Otter Bay as Callie tries to save the town's beloved beachside bluff from development, and in the process is drawn to architect and arch-rival, Gage Mitchell. The message throughout reminds us that although we often forget to ask, it's the Lord who determines our steps. I thoroughly enjoyed this fun story.

Combine an unwanted stray dog, a warm sandy beach and two people trying to ignore their attraction to each other and you end up with a fantastic recipe for a summer romance!

A Shore Thing is a perfect summer time read for lovers of Christian fiction / romance.

This story revolves around Callie Duflay, a 30 something single woman who throws herself head first into her volunteer work and her position as an assistant camp director. Callie is an Otter Bay native and is furious when she finds out that an architect has plans to turn her beloved pristine shoreline into a large multi-use development. Architect, Gage Mitchell, is a handsome, single man who makes Callie's heart race, even though he's technically the enemy.

When Callie rallies other angry members of her community, they nominate her as president of their group "Save Our Shores". As Callie begins to prepare to fight for Otter Bay and stop the development, she discovers that her feelings for Gage keep getting in the way.

Gage and Callie find themselves meeting up time and time again with opposing views, and both are determined to win the fight for Otter Bay. Callie is tenacious and has sentimental ties to the shoreline she grew up with and is unwavering in her protective feelings of her hometown. Gage has everything riding on the development of Otter Bay, including his personal livelihood. Sparks fly in more ways than one as the two slowly begin to realize that they may have more in common than they originally thought. Gage and Callie begin to discover that the development deal may not be on the up and up, and the future of Otter Bay becomes even more uncertain.

This is a clean, well-written story with affirmations of faith in God, trusting Him with your future and the importance of family.

Format: Paperback
Callie Dufflay is a cause fighter. She is always fighting for some cause or another. She has deep convictions about right and wrong, about taking care of our planet and she stands and acts on those convictions. A deep faith also drives her to do the right thing. She is on a mission to help save a piece of property in her small village that borders a marine sanctuary.
Gage Mitchell, is starting over. His last boss was so dirty and crooked, he knew it was time to begin a company of his own. Choosing the small town of Otter Bay, and a new project that looked like it would be a real money maker, he is finally feeling like things are going his way. His sister and nephew have come to live with him, after her husband was sent to prison, Gage is happy to be able to have them with him.
This project/mission is really stretching Callie. Not only is she suddenly all in the news, her family is not happy about it. And this new guy in town Gage, she seems to constantly be running into him. She knows that there is some underhanded dealing going on with this property, but her promise to the owners, keeps her silent. Will Otter Bay have a new development? Will the Kitteridge family be robbed of their property? What will happen to Otter Bay?
This book was so fun to read, I never knew what Callie would be up to next. I could relate to her anguish over trying to help someone who is being swindled, while trying to keep their confidential secret. This book is definitely a book to read this summer. I loved it from cover to cover. 400 pages US$14.99 5 stars
