    Good start for a new series

    I received an ARC of this book from Hachette Publishing for a honest and fair review. This is the first book in author Marina Adair’s “Destiny Bay” series. It tells the love story of Kennedy Sinclair and Luke Callahan. I found Kennedy to be a contradiction. She was traumatized by the lack of love and attention from her mother as a child. Kennedy’s mother would frequently leave her with her own mother while she traipsed around the country looking for excitement from whatever boyfriend she had at the time. This left Kennedy craving order, security, and the “safe” choice. Yet Kennedy let her life get so entangled with his that she is out of a home and job when she catches him cheating on her with their salsa dance teacher. She immediately packs up and heads to her Grandmother’s house in Georgia. Grandmother convinces Kennedy who was “born organizing” to give up on her accounting career and move to Washington State to run a pie shop that is run by an old friend of Grandmother’s. Kennedy won 3rd place in the county fair as a teen so she’s qualified. On one page she says she’s not going to be making a life changing decision based on a man. Yet a few pages later she does just that. Luke Callahan runs Callahan Orchards and is trying to start a hard apple cider business with his best friend Hawk. He needs the 3 acres of apples that are promised to Kennedy when she purchased the shop from his aunt and mother. He up front tells her that he’ll do anything to get those apples. He then proceeds to see if he can figure out Kennedy’s weak spot to get those apples. Kennedy craves love, the feeling of being worthy of love and family and Luke capitalizes on this. She falls in love with him and he doesn’t realize until it is almost too late that he is in love with her too. Their interactions were cute and Kennedy definitely livened up when she got to Washington. I did feel if maybe he’d just talked to his mother then a lot of his misunderstandings in the book could have been prevented. A few of the characters in the book are similar to ones in Adair’s previous books. Including one guilty about their parents death, one dumped on their grandparents, one tough on the outside to hide hurts on the inside, feisty senior citizens and one in love with an ex’s sibling. The book contains a preview of the next book in the series featuring Luke’s best friend Brian Hawk and Ali (his ex sister in law).

    Like a breath of fresh air!

    Reading one of Marina Adair's novels is like taking a breath of fresh air. They're sexy, real and have the perfect amount of romance without being too sweet or too erotic. She leaves you with hope for the good guy even if he's got a touch of the bad boy inside. This is book one in the Destiny Bay series and it features Luke Callahan and Kennedy Sinclair. It was written in the stars. These two belong together but what they go through on their journey leaves you doubting that they'll ever make it there. Fabulous characters! Fi, Paula, Ali and the rest are AWESOME! This is one of those stories that not only are you moved by the main characters but all the secondary characters make the story that much better. This is an amazing series opener. I can't wait to read the next one.
