Publisher Description:

She had big-city dreams with big-city goals. No one was more surprised than she was when she found her place—and her heart—in her small seaside hometown.

Returning to Crane’s Cove for the summer to regroup and reset, Shelby Porter has no time for nonsense. She needs to reassess her career goals and find a way to fund them. There's no room in her life for the too-kind, too-handsome-for-his-own-good, and too-sweet-for-his-tea Georgia transplant who’s become besotted with her.

In all the years Detective Damon Saunders lived in Atlanta, the city never seemed like home. During a brief trip to Crane’s Cove for a family wedding, he finally understood why. He may hide a haunting past behind his dimpled perma-smile, but the night he met Shelby, he knew what home was supposed to feel like.

When Shelby makes it clear that she’s leaving at the end of August, Damon is determined to convince her to stay. She’s torn between family obligations and her desire to make a difference in the world.

If he can open her eyes to how much good she can do by staying here, maybe she’ll also see what he sees—that their feelings for each other are the forever kind.

Love on the Beach is a sweet small-town friends-to-lovers he-falls-first romance and Book 3 in the Crane’s Cove series. Escape to the Cliff Walk Resort in seaside Maine to fall in love with the town and its unforgettable ensemble cast of characters.
