Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood returns with a novel of family drama, suspense, and--of course--romance. <br> <br> Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have inherited Bishop's Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit--only then will they own it.<br> <br> A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic. Out of work and in a bad place personally, a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful.<br> <br> There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop the sisters from succeeding. Among them are Peyton's contentious cousins, who are outraged that they didn't inherit the resort, as well as a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property.<br> <br> It's soon apparent to Peyton that their efforts are being sabotaged, but she refuses to let the threats scare her--until she's nearly killed. She calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. He saved her life once; he can do it again.<br> Julie's previous two titles, The Ideal Man and Sweet Talk , both debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.

Inheriting a luxurious oceanfront resort under a condition that she must run it profitably for one year to claim full ownership, food critic Peyton Lockhart is targeted by dangerous rivals and is protected from a threat against her life by childhood friend and attractive FBI agent Finn MacBain.

Library Journal Review

Disgusted and unnerved by her lecherous boss's aggressive behavior, chef Peyton Lockhart flees into a Minnesota blizzard, barely avoids being run off the road by her ex-boss's hit man, and heads home to Texas to consider her options. There, she runs into her childhood hero, the Olympic medalist who once saved her from drowning, lawyer and FBI agent Finn MacBain, who is just as appealing and protective as ever. When he learns the story behind the bullet holes in Peyton's car, Finn knows it means more trouble. But Peyton and her sisters move to Florida to run Bishop's Cove, their uncle's island resort, and where she gets a new bullet hole in her car. VERDICT A swift pace, electric sexual tension, an abundance of fascinating characters, and an engaging plot with plenty of action and a touch of humor make this a perfect summertime page-turner. RITA Award winner Garwood (Sweet Talk) lives in Leawood, KS. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
