Suddenly One SummerBook - 2009
The first in a contemporary romance suspense series from USA TODAY bestselling and RITA award-winning author Barbara Freethy, set in the coastal California town of Angel's Bay.
In Angel's Bay there is a local legend: spirits from an 1800s shipwreck protect the townspeople, bringing about a belief in miracles and an ability of the community to heal wounds and save souls. So when Jenna Davis's sister left instructions for keeping her daughter, Lexie, safe from her abusive father, Jenna obeyed her late sister's wishes and took Lexie to Angel's Bay. For three months, the two live quietly. But when a young woman jumps over the pier into the ocean, Jenna dives in, saving the woman's life. Now a hero in the eyes of the locals, Jenna tries to lie low, but reporter Reid Tanner is determined to figure out just who she is and what she's hiding from--without realizing the possible cost.
