Review & Giveaway Tour: Barefoot Beach by Debbie Mason
Wedding fever has taken over Harmony Harbor this summer, and the local matchmakers have set their sights on Theia Lawson, a former navy pilot who's in town for a stay at Greystone Manor. And while Theia's got her reasons to put this small town behind her as fast as she can, there's a certain tall, dark, and irresistible man that she can't seem to get off her mind.
Firefighter Marco DiRossi wants to beat the matchmakers at their own game so he conspires with Theia to pretend they've already fallen in love. It's only for the summer. What could go wrong? Yet as the beach season draws to a close, Marco and Theia find their pretend relationship has led to very real attraction. But when a secret from the past is revealed, jeopardizing everything they hold dear, can this unlikely couple find their way to a happily-ever-after?

For those who follow me, they know how much I totally love Debbie Mason. Her books always make me feel!
Sometimes I'm happy, other times I want to yell at the characters. But in the end, she always leaves me satisfied. What more could you ask for in an author?
We are heading towards the finish of the Harmony Harbor series. Not to worry the author is good at surprising you with a fun novella story here or there for her series. Plus her new series sounds so good. I can't wait for it.
I've been hoping for Marco's story since we first met him. I wasn't sure what kind of woman could steal his heart but I knew she'd have to be very special to do so. At first, I wasn't sure if Theia was special enough. In the prior book, I didn't trust her very much so I wasn't sure. But as I read Barefoot Beach I saw just how special she was.
I will admit I totally fell in love with her. She is the sweetest woman that could be. And she's perfect for Marco. She's both tough and a marshmallow underneath. I think Marco needs that kind of woman. He needs one that can stand beside him holding strong when times are tough but will also treat those around her nicely.
This turned out to be a very special book. A ton happens and some of it very shocking. Even though each story in this series stands on its own with its own storyline you still had a common thread that ran through each book. Like the prior books, you find out a little more about the common thread but still don't have the full picture. I'm sure we'll get that with the next book. I really can't wait.
I suggest you read this series in order. Each book will work better that way. Plus, you really get to know the main characters that are in most of the books. This is why I love series so much. Reading them is like going home.
So have any of you read her before? Either her Harmony Harbor series or her Christmas, Colorado series? If you have, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
