Welcome to Cedar Ridge Colorado and to the Kincaid family. I just finished reading book #3 so I have to go and find the first two but I loved this book and can't wait to go back and find the others. I love Jill's books anyway and if you haven't had a chance to read any of her series I suggest you pick one up today.
In this novel we meet Jacob Kincaid who has been serving his country in the Army Special Forces unit and after the death of one of his "brothers" who was killed in action he comes home to think about what he wants to do with his life and check on his mom who is not of stable mind and lives in a nursing facility. He's not sure of his family's reaction to his homecoming so he stays low for a while to see how everyone is doing. While he is staying at a cabin by the lake he sees a boat moored out on the dock and he doesn't know who it belongs to so he goes down to investigate and meets Ms. Sophie Marren.
Sophie Marren has come to Cedar Ridge to start over after her divorce from her ex-husband Lucas, who took everything in the divorce because she wanted no reminders but she did take the one thing he loved more than her, the boat, and she is starting to regret it because it turns out she is seasick. She has parked the boat in different places around Cedar Ridge and she picked the cabin dock only to be found out by Jacob. When he comes down to the boat she thinks he is water patrol and she figures that's it she's in trouble but he tells her that she either needs to get a permit or park down at the public beach. While she is talking to Jacob, one of Lucas' floozies comes to the boat thinking he is there and gets a nice surprise. Sophie is so mad she goes down below to get her stuff and when she pulls open the drawer she sees lingerie and a rabbit vibrator and doesn't dare touch it. She takes them topside and when she trips everything falls out on the deck and Jacob says to her, "You have a license for this?" referring to the vibrator. I laughed so hard at that line and I can just picture Sophie's embarrassment.
This is a wonderful book and I can't wait to read more about the Kincaid family and go back to read the first two books.
