Looking for a tropical escape?
Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest—and most beautiful—islands in the Florida Keys, home to sandy white beaches, salt-rimmed margaritas, stunning sunsets, and some of the quirkiest—but also kindest and most resourceful—people you’ll ever meet.
Physical trainer Roberta “Rob” James moved to Little Bridge hoping she’d found paradise, but things haven’t turned out quite as she’d hoped. The closest Rob has come to her “happily ever after” is happy hour at the Mermaid Café with her buddy Bree, the bartender slash waitress who’s got romance problems of her own.
But Rob’s situation suddenly changes when sheriff’s deputy Ryan Martinez accidentally enrolls in her bridal boot camp class. Turning mush into metal in time for the big day is Rob’s passion (because even the happiest bride could use a little toning).
But what happens when a guy who’s all mush meets a girl who’s all metal?
They discover they have a lot to learn . . . about each other, themselves, and the island paradise they’ve come to call home.
Sweet and too short, this is a story about a woman who is a romantic but has had her heart broken so is afraid to love again, but when an adorable man comes to her bridal boot camp class by mistake, she gets new hope. There is a slight misunderstanding, and a quick romance, so there isn’t much more to say for a story that is roughly only 50 pages. It does introduce the main character for the first book, but only in the background, and some other characters who seem like they’ll feature in the book, too. I am excited for Cabot’s new series so this was nice to read, but I do hope the main characters of this novella also feature in the main series. Overall, cute story but too fast too short.
