Review: The Love Shack by Christie Ridgway

Photojournalist Gabe Lowell spent his childhood summers in Crescent Cove with his twin and local girl, Skye Alexander. While deployed overseas, he got through that hell by reading Skye's letters and imagining himself back there on the beach. But the image in his head didn't come close to the real woman. Skye has been harboring a secret crush on Gage for years. She hadn't seen him in so long, she figured her heart was safe, until he returns for one month on her Cove, and stirs up more than just lust.

The first book (Beach House No 9) was a great read. I loved the main characters even though the secondary fell flat. The second book (Bungalow Nights) had a great secondary romance while the main was just so-so. This book... This book nailed it. I couldn't wait to get to Skye's story, wondering what secret put her in her shell, and couldn't wait to see Gage get her out. This was a fantastic summer read: sexy romance, beautiful setting, and closure for the characters we love. Did I mention Teague and Polly finally get their story? Well, they do. Recommended.
