Autumn Antics (The Boardwalk by the Sea Book 2)
by Georgina Troy
Being a part-time hand model can be tricky, especially when you have to deal with prima donnas like Megan Knight, a reality star whose meteoric rise has surprised everyone. Bella is happiest running her tiny antique business from the front room of her cottage on the boardwalk. To ensure she has enough income coming in, she also rents out two of her bedrooms and is hiding a secret crush on one of her lodgers. His name is Jack and he also happens to be her best friend Sacha’s brother.
If life wasn’t complicated enough, her world-travelling mother appears on her doorstep on the same evening that Jack’s ex-fiancée arrives on the boardwalk determined to win him back. Bella has a lot of thinking to do and soon discovers that not all gems sparkle.
Sweet, enjoyable read with memorable characters!
Autumn Antics centers around Bella. This is the second book in a series, but it can be read as a standalone!
Bella is a part-time hand model, but she loves her beloved island home. She runs a tiny antique business, and she rents her home out to two lodgers. She has had a crush on one of her lodgers,Jack, for years. She is hoping the two can maybe discover a relationship outside the bounds of friendship, but there are about to be a lot of obstacles put in their path.
Jack’s ex shows up trying to get back together. Then, her long lost mother returns hoping to repair the relationship she broke years ago. If that wasn’t enough, reality star, Megan Knight, shows up as well. With all these distractions, will she and Jack ever get their chance?
I found the storyline very enjoyable. The setting was absolutely stunning. The author did an amazing job of taking right there to that beautiful island. The characters are quirky, and I loved them. The romance between Jack and Bella was everything I hoped it would be and the wait was well worth it.
