A Shore Thing - An Otter Bay Novel by Julie Carobini

 A Shore Thing
Book Two in the Otter Bay Series

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.
