Cooper’s Charm

Summer Resort #1

by Lori Foster

One summer, two sisters and a chance to start over…

Before the burglary that shattered her confidence, Phoenix Rose had a fiancé, a successful store and a busy, happy existence. After months spent adrift, she takes a job at the lakeside resort of Cooper’s Charm. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, friendly colleagues and a charismatic, widowed boss, Phoenix is slowly inching her way back into the world.

Visiting Cooper’s Charm to check up on her little sister, Ridley Rose impulsively agrees to fill in as housekeeper. Still reeling from an ego-bruising divorce, she finds satisfaction in a job well done—and in the attention of the resort’s handsome scuba instructor.

For Phoenix and Ridley, Cooper’s Charm is supposed to be merely temporary. But this detour may lead to the place they most need to be, where the future is as satisfying as it is surprising…

I’m a little late writing this review because this is definitely one of those fabulous beach reads.  But it’s also perfect for those who are looking for a little downtime after the holidays 🙂  Cooper’s Charm is full of all the feels and charm that you could ask for.  The characters are entertaining, with just a touch of troubles to keep you reading.

Phoenix is at the little resort to take some time to herself and recover from a traumatic experience.  She’s definitely not expecting to be attracted to her new boss, especially a man who is working to overcome his own past.  The timing may not be the best but these two troubled hearts may just be what each other needs.

Ridley is only at Cooper’s Charm to make sure that her sister is OK.  Coming out of a bitter divorce she’s definitely not interested in getting involved again either.  How do you think that works out?

I loved these people – they are complex and their interactions kept me entertained.  I found myself cheering for them all as they work through their issues and move toward really living in the world again.

Foster is definitely one of today’s most popular romance author’s, with everything from sports romances to romantic suspenses, but I have to admit that her contemporary romances are my favorite.  She’s just got such a wonderful way about crafting her characters and I always get so involved in their lives.  I’m definitely looking forward to what she has in store next at the summer resort.
