"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

This book is about an all too real problem in small town North America, both USA and Canada, and I'm sure in many countries across the world, the loss of the town's major industry, leaving the town behind with what seems like no concern at all for the people caught in the crossfires. Ms. Catori has captured the heat of the situation and turned it into a story that many can relate to, keeping it real and down-to-earth, yet adding in the extra twists to the mix. We find corporate re-organizer, Barbara, coming home to her childhood town with the unwelcomed job of shutting down the local factory, the small town's sole major industry, only to come across the path of her teenage heartthrob, all grown up and hotter than ever. Ryder doesn't think much of her when he first sees her, but as fate throws them together, feelings change. With his father as the manager of the factory, he's torn between his loyalties to him and the town, and his fragile feelings to Barbara.
Between walks on the beach and fires popping up at the factory, the plot is full of romance, suspense and hope. We meet additional characters such as Hunter and Brad, that hopefully have left the door open for the author to continue the saga of the small town of Ocean Crest and it's struggles, as it fights to bring it back to life. Once again, I am duly impressed with the works of Ms. Catori. I loved this book and recommend you pick it up. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I know I wasn't.
This is a good, solid story that reads fast and was hard to put down. There were a few minor editing issues to do with extra or missing words, but nothing that was more than a slight hiccup. I plan to purchase the next Flirting with Curves story featuring Ryder's brother and look forward to reading it.
Barbara Johnson returns to Ocean Crest to shut down the factory. After years away she doesn't have to many fond memories of living there. She is there to do a job.. When she needs someone to do repairs on her house she hires Ryder Bishop. Ryder finds himself attracted to Barbara. He isn't usually attracted to plus sized women. He is to much into fitness and taking care of your body. He knows he should remember her but can't quite place her.
Loved the chemistry between the characters. Ryder is loyal to the town and his father. When he finds what Barbara is up to, he has to decide if he should follow through on this attraction or walk away. Barbara grew up not knowing her father and with a drunk mother. Ryder never paid any attention to her back then. Is it worth getting involved with Ryder when she is here to do a job and leave. When a fire breaks out of the factory. Things start changing for the both of them. Lots of suspense, romance and some heated arguments. Wonderful romance
She comes back to town years after she escaped as a successful woman who must shut down the factory that is the last business keeping the shore town alive. She tries to find a way to bring another company in to bring life into the town, but a series of arson fires threatens the deal and her life.
Meanwhile Barbara and Ryder fall deaper in love even tho people think she is the enemy of the town.
A real page turner, I like the cute little shore town the the authors have created and would like to read more books in the series
Unassuming yet lush in emotion and conflict, Barbara and Ryder's story drew me in right from the start. A successful woman who hides deep insecurities is swept off her feet by a seemingly laid-back man who, however, is fiercely loyal to his hometown and his family. And Barbara threatens both. The tension is there, the stakes are high, yet the authors' writing flows effortlessly, making this an easy read.
And hot. Shower-worthy hot.
