Catch of the Day by Carla Caruso
I can smell the ocean
It wasn't just the gorgeous cover that caught my eye with this story. This small town is far from sleepy and the characters in it are colourful and tenacious. They get under your skin and you just want to give them a hug. I couldn't put this sweet story down and Carla Caruso's free-flowing style and lovely seaside descriptions made for a great read.
Poor Winnie is banished to the tiny coastal town of Kingston, from her glamorous Sydney life. She throws her energy into getting a new lifestyle magazine up and running, making unexpected friends along the way. Freelance photographer and cray fisherman, Alex, catches her eyes, but he's aloof and she needs to stay away from non-committal men. Negotiating the small town gossips is tricky, but nothing compared to the devastation when Alex's secret past is revealed.
