Love Found in Cranberry Cove, Cranberry Cove #2 by June Foster

Book description:

 Gracie Mayberry wants to study marine science at the community college in a neighboring coastal town. But a degree takes money, and she must remain in Cranberry Cove to help her mother support her disabled father who lost both legs while serving his country and now suffers from PTSD. She leaves her job at Starbucks to work at The Inn at Cranberry Cove while the owner is on maternity leave. When the sophisticated, good looking Blake Sloan arrives at the inn, she's attracted to the guy with eyes the color of rich honey.

Seattle resident Blake Sloan takes time off from his job in his father's thriving fishing vessel company. He admits he's followed his father's dream instead of his heart's desire—to run his own business and start a non-profit to benefit wounded vets. When he meets Gracie's father, he's sure God has placed the longing within him.

But when a stalker makes terrifying midnight visits to the humble Mayberry home and threatens their lives, Blake discovers he's also a target of extortion.

Can Blake and Gracie learn who's behind the danger that threatens them? Will a small-town girl and big-city boy find a life together?

My review:

    I enjoyed the first book in this series, and loved the setting of both the town and Inn. I was happy to find out there was a sequel coming, and it is now out.

  Again the setting is mostly around the inn, though this book has two different main characters. This book has a bit more suspense than the first, which is my favorite genre'.

 Blake and Gracie were very likable characters, and since this is a romantic suspense novel, there is a romance brewing between them fairly early on in the book amidst the suspense element of the book. I had my suspicions about the identity of the bad guy, and was happy to find out I was right. Though it is also cool when I can't figure that out in a book.

 The book was an enjoyable read, and I am hoping there is more to come in this series.

I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions in this review are my own.
