    This is truly a romance for the ages It may read as a contemporary romance but it has elements that in my opinion transcend era and time period because it speaks to each of us through characters that share a common denominator A tragic experience in their past that has shaped them into the people they have become Can love, forgiveness and acceptance help them to overcome their own fears and insecurities This is the journey that the author weaves in an epic tale of three beautiful and thoroughly fleshed out characters the hero, Tom, Thomas Jefferson TJ DeMille also known as Uncle Tommy, and Gussie or Augusta McBain, one of our three Bridal Consultants at Barefoot Bay, and of course the loose end that ties them both together, TJ s barely teenage niece, Alex.Tom is an internationally renowned fashion photographer whose work is in the very highest demand 350 days per year in exotic locations around the world He loves his globe trotting lifestyle while his career is at it s all time high and for which he has no plans or desire to change it Gussie is happy launching her third part of the Barefoot Brides business located at the Casa Blanca Resort as their premier stylist but is clearly awe struck when the infamous photographer TJ DeMille lands in Barefoot Bay And Alex Well, sadly...

    For me the big attraction of this book was Gussie She was so fun and loving of life, an interesting fact as you learn about a big event from her past I loved that Gussie didn t let that drag her down It seemed like everyone that came into contact with Gussie fell in love with her, even Tom, as much as he didn t want to I really had a hard time warming up to Tom, he seemed so cold and an asshole It was only when you learned a secret from his past you realize that the cold was put in place to...

    This book me forever to get through, not gonna lie There s nothing wrong with it exactly, but none of the characters really stand out and the plot seems to drag on forever without much of anything happening It s a perfectly pleasant run of the mill plot but it never managed to be interesting to me.

    This, the 6th book in the Barefoot Bay series continues to maintain the level of excellence set by the previous books in the series I think instead of the usual star rating system I should rate this book in boxes of Kleenex It is IMHO an anomaly, a rare thing in contemporary romance books based upon my fairly broad reading experience of the genre First and foremost the romance between our heroine Gussie Augusta and Tom is almost secondary to the other story lines A warning Ms St Claire is not very complimentary to the French in this book beyond their food and drink So if you re French you may find her take on the French people insulting You have Alex, Tom s almost thirteen year old niece Her mom, the only relative she knows passes suddenly leaving her in the care of her Uncle Tom whom she has never even met And Tom while he feels obligated to care for Alex isn t the least bit happy about this new responsibility that interferes with the nomadic, no emotional attachment lifestyle he s built for himself That resentment is not lost on Alex Alex s struggles with the reality that her beloved momma is gone, her dreams that her long abse...
