Charity owns the SuperMin convenience store on Mimosa Key. Her nephew Josh comes to visit & Charity takes advantage of him being there to escape on a cruise. Unbeknownst to Josh, Charity had set up a meeting with Charlie to discuss selling the convenience store to the oil company that runs the gas pumps. Charlie doesn't recognize Josh & he doesn't tell her since he's had women jumping him for his money. Charlie thinks Josh is just a clerk at the store. As things go along, the chemistry between Josh & Charlie grows. Charlie also learns more & more about the plans for the SuperMin. Can she ignore her morals to get the job done? Will Josh & Charlie fall in love? Can Charlie forgive Josh for keeping his wealth a secret? Read & find out! You can't go wrong with this one!
Dueling games of "I know something you don't know" finally come to a head and the trigger is pulled. With one chance encounter, wine magnate Josh's convenient secret is revealed and Charlie walks away from the man she's fallen in love with. Can she put the hurt away and see that Josh was simply acting in the best interest of his aunt and the island?
Leigh Duncan's addition to Barefoot Bay was a delightful read and I look forward to reading more of her work. And P.S. if there is a recipe for blood orange key lime pie with bittersweet chocolate cracker crust, I wish the author would post it on her website. The very thought of it had me drooling on my iPad.
Charlotte "Charlie" Oak was raised by parents who didn't have a lot of money and worked hard to make something of her life. Charlie works at Waterson and Bash in Mergers and Acquisitions, putting in long hours even on the weekend., trying to get a promotion. Her current job is to convince "mom and pop" owners of convenience stores that use Favor Oil for their gasoline to sell their stores to Favor Oil. One of these store owners in Barefoot Bay's favorite, Charity Grambling. Charlie travels to Barefoot Bay for a meeting with Charity and is surprised when she arrives at the Super Mini Mart that Charity is not there and is on a cruise, according to Josh, the guy working behind the counter. Charlie is instantly attracted to Josh but sees him as only a grown guy working in a mini mart. Josh is really Charity's nephew and is just taking a break from his own company and he is completely smitten by Charlie. She does not recognize him as the wealthy wine billionaire and he loves the idea of just being himself.
I loved the time Charlie and Josh spent together getting to know each other. These two characters had such great chemistry and you just couldn't help but root for them to end up being together. I loved how over time Charlie started to realize what was happening with the Favor Oil acquisitions and her feelings changed.
The dramatic ending when Charlie found out who Josh really was was great and I loved the way Josh won Charlie back. I can't imagine having to live like that. The ending with Charity was classic Charity....perfect!
Overall I loved this story and would highly recommend it.
