Callie Duflay just isn’t like the rest of her family. While they’ve built white collar lives, she prefers getting her hands dirty by working with children and local California causes. When Callie learns that a beloved piece of untouched property in her town of Otter Bay may soon be developed, she confronts the architect assigned to the project. Gage Mitchell may be an easygoing, eco-friendly professional, but he’s not about to back off this job no matter how cute Callie or her pet pooch, Moondoggy, may be. His reasons and hers are noble—both have a heart for protecting God’s creation, and the truth is these two would be perfect for each other outside of this face-off. But will they ever figure that out?
Julie Carobini’s books always make my must read list for their tender romance, gentle humour and spiritual message. A Shore Thing combines these ingredients, adds in a lovable dog, an environmental dilemma and two people determined to stand up for what they believe in. That being said, I didn’t feel as connected with this story as I have with her previous novels but can’t quite put my finger on exactly why. I did wish for more interaction between Gage and Callie as I enjoyed them both as characters, for their integrity and enthusiasm and the sparks that flew between them. A Shore Thing is a good read and one I still recommend. I will certainly be on the lookout for Julie’s next novel.
