Callie Duflay is a cause fighter.  She is always fighting for some cause or another.  She has deep convictions about right and wrong, about taking care of our planet and she stands and acts on those convictions.  A deep faith also drives her to do the right thing.  She is on a mission to help save a piece of property in her small village that borders a marine sanctuary. 
Gage Mitchell, is starting over.  His last boss was so dirty and crooked, he knew it was time to begin a company of his own.  Choosing the small town of Otter Bay, and a new project that looked like it would be a real money maker, he is finally feeling like things are going his way.  His sister and nephew have come to live with him, after her husband was sent to prison, Gage is happy to be able to have them with him. 
This project/mission is really stretching Callie.  Not only is she suddenly all in the news, her family is not happy about it.  And this new guy in town Gage, she seems to constantly be running into him.  She knows that there is some underhanded dealing going on with this property, but her promise to the owners, keeps her silent.  Will Otter Bay have a new development?  Will the Kitteridge family be robbed of their property?  What will happen to Otter Bay?
This book was so fun to read, I never knew what Callie would be up to next.  I could relate to her anguish over trying to help someone who is being swindled, while trying to keep their confidential secret.  This book is definitely a book to read this summer.  I loved it from cover to cover.  400 pages US$14.99 5 stars
