Each animal had a clear and complete character and believe me they stole the show over and over and I loved every second spent with them in a sceneAuthor Christie Ridgway is new to me and her offering is “Beach House Beginnings” and it takes place when Meg Alexander returns to her childhood town of Crescent Cove California 10 years after leaving due to the tragic loss of her teenage sweetheart Peter McCall Losing him drove her to leave and in the intervening years she has steered away from ever feeling the pain of love and loss again Having gone through a “life after death” eye opening experience Caleb McCall decides that he needs to learn how to slow down and find happiness other than from his demanding work His dream of Meg leads him to go to Crescent Cove and convince her that they both deserve a second chance togetherThis was a very bittersweet romance story of finally letting go of a lost love and allowing an even stronger connection to forge that has the possibility of lasting a lifetime for Caleb and Meg Again there was a bit of scene stealing by Bitzer the now aging mixed breed dog that Peter left behind and that Caleb considers to be his best friend Victoria Dahl is also a new to me author and her contribution “Strong Enough to Love” about Eve Hill and Brian Stewart takes us through the fallout following falling in love with your best friend who is married leavesEve has now finally 2 years later reconciled herself to having lost Brian since he moved from Wyoming to try and make his marriage work Funny thing is she still feels the empty space his absence has left in her life even though they never acted on their mutual attraction that fact has caused Eve both pain at her loss and pride that her morals were not compromisedBrian shows up unexpectedly at Eve’s gallery on a night she has gone to a friends birthday party when she comes home he is standing outside the window admiring a photographic displayAll of Eve’s mixed feelings come rushing back when Brian tells her that he is now divorced and wishes to have a chance for he and Eve to be together as he still loves herWill Eve decide that she deserves to finally win Brian’s heart or will she turn her back on this second chance at love?

had mixed feelings about Brian I respected the fact that he didn't give in to his feelings while he was still married But I hated the way that he went back to his wife even though he knew he cared for Eve After three separations it should have been obvious that the marriage was over Telling Eve that he cared for her but was still leaving did a number of her self confidence as she felt that she wasn't good enough for him to want to stay I would have liked to see him have to work a little harder to get her back

I get that Brian and Eve grew closer working together was even glad that they didn't act on their developing feelings But what I had issue with was Brian confessing all to Eve then leaving her to go back to his wife She really didn't need to know that and then be toldshown that she still wasn't enough I hated him even that he would come back and expect to pick up like nothing happened I wish that Eve could have found someone in the mean time that she could have been happy during that time instead of knowing where he was and what he was doing It was because of those issues that I am ambivalent about the ending
