Love Finds You in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California


Annie Gray has an epiphany: she is not living the life she's always dreamed of. She decides to start fresh, drawing inspiration from her favorite classic Hollywood films.

First, Annie moves into the picturesque Carmel bungalow belonging to her grandmother -- a retired film star.

Next up: landing an exciting job as a private investigator's assistant. But Annie's new boss is no Humphrey Bogart, and the work isn't quite what she pictured.

Just when everything in Annie's screen-worthy plan teeters on the brink of disaster, she has another epiphany. Will this one land her in the arms of her own leading man?

My Thoughts:

I bought this book while on vacation because it looked like it would be a great vacation-by-the-lake read. I was right!  I also love everything written by Sandra D. Bricker so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed.

This book was so fun.  There were so many references to old movies, actors, actresses, and Hollywood.  Doris Day even makes an appearance!  Loved those movies, too!

Annie is trying to redirect her life's path into something more rewarding, challenging and fulfilling.  I love that her new job is with a PI.

"Bench" is her temporary boss and their dynamics are great.  I really like how he constantly calls her "Annie Gray".  He is really a character but as the book unfolds I that he really had true character.

This is a another great book from Sandra.  It was a great summer vacation read!  I highly recommend it.

  1. Hmmm... I'm always on the lookout for what could be good summer reads. Those light, fun books are so perfect for a lazy summer day/evening. Thanks for reviewing this one! I'll keep a lookout for it.
