Shore LightsBook - 2003
Maddy Bainbridge knew that the things that drove her crazy about her mother when she was seventeen would drive her even crazier now that she is thirty-two, but Rose's invitation to return home to the Jersey Shore came at a time when Maddy had few choices. Her ex had just remarried, her four-year-old daughter had lost her smile, and her job had gone the way of a thousand other dot-com disasters. Maddy is worried about her daughter and determined to give her something to smile about, even if it means engaging in a heated on-line auction for an old Russian samovar. Ex-firefighter Aidan O'Mally wanted that samovar for his teenage daughter, and he isn't happy at being outbid. But from a bidding war, a most unlikely-and romantic-connection is formed. Both wary and weary, neither Maddy nor Aidan expect to care so deeply-and so quickly-about each other. But amidst some surprising family secrets, their efforts to give a little girl and an elderly woman their hearts' desires may justs give Maddy and Aidan a chance of finding their own.
