If you could imagine a perfect place to live where would it be? What would the scenery, the weather, and the housing look like? What would the people be like? What types of occupations would flourish?
When Cathryn Fox and Nikki Duncan asked me participate in an anthology we asked ourselves some of the above questions. It was Cathryn who introduced us to the small coastal town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. If you would like to see a couple pictures of this beautiful town visit Cathryn’s blog right here on Nine Naughty Novelists’ site at http://ninenaughtynovelists.blogspot.com/2011/04/guest-blogger-cathryn-fox-beautiful.html
Speaking for myself, I immediately fell in love with the location. Born and raised in the deserts of Arizona, I have always had a fascination with water. Whispering Cove, although make-believe, was the perfect place for me to let my imagination go.
It was easy to envision the type of people who would live in this seaport village—a place where the community’s livelihood lies in the arms of the ocean, its embrace sometimes serene and sometimes turbulent. While some folks wish only to escape, others grasp tightly to their childhood roots. You’ll find that Whispering Cove is a place where history and character is revealed in each of the townspeople and where the ocean calls those who have strayed to return.
From three crotchety, conniving old grandfathers who only want their grandchildren home and happy, and will stop at nothing to have their way, to each of the heroines/heroes struggling with past memories, Whispering Cove has all the warmth and charm you can ask for.
In Wild in Whispering Cove Andrea Adair is one who has strayed, not from seeking greener pastures, but to run away from a memory too daunting to face. Finding her way back isn’t a piece of cake. Cake?
And what would a town be without its cuisine?
During one of Andie’s and Brody’s scenes they feast on Lobster Rolls, a delicacy which I have never had the opportunity to taste until I visited Florida. Oh yum! The bread was so soft, the lobster so sweet and succulent. While entrenched in their story I even found myself wanting to make some garlic fingers and chowder, even though I don’t much care for clams.
I think this is a great lead in to Cathryn Fox’s Wet in Whispering Cove where her heroine is a chef, and she is cooking up a lot more than clam chowder in her kitchen. Also, you won’t want to miss Wicked in Whispering Cove by Nikki Duncan. Naughty boys are as much fun as Nine Naughty Novelists.
Below I’ve include a Blurb of Wild…In Whispering Cove. Thanks so much in allowing me to visit with you. And, as always, happy reading!
Wild…in Whispering Cove
Haunting memories made her run--family forced her return--can love make her stay?
Ten years ago a tragic accident forced Andrea “Andie” Adair from Whispering Cove, leaving behind her family, friends, and fiancé. A dark secret keeps her away from the sleepy seaport village, until she receives an ambiguous telephone from her grandfather. He’s in the hospital. Desperate to cling to her only living relative she races back home and straight into the arms of the one man she can’t bear to face.
Sheriff, Brody McGrath, built his life without the woman of his dreams, but when he catches Andie, thinking she’s a prowler, he isn’t prepared for the onslaught of emotions—grief, regret, heartache, and love.
There is no denying the old spark between them still burns brightly, but can love defeat the demons of Andie’s past and allow her to live again?
