A second sexy small-town tale from USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis

Three sisters, raised apart, are surprised to discover that they have inherited a ramshackle bed and breakfast from their mother. As they meet in the small Pacific Northwest beach town, they find a picturesque place that still has a make-out point on the far side of the rocks and though you can leave your car unlocked and a pile of money on your backseat, you can't trust a single resident with a secret.

The oldest sister, Tara, promised herself she'd never come back to this town and yet she finds herself charmed and drawn in all over again. Choosing between two perfect men while forced to face a mistake that turns out to not be a mistake at all, she's shocked to discover that love does conquer all.

Charlotte "Charlie" Sparks has always fought hard---to get away from the life she once had, to hold on to the one she lives now, and to strive for the one that's just a hair's breadth out of reach. The only thing left between her and becoming an operative is one more trial mission...and six-and-a-half foot former SEAL commander Vincent Franklin. But pretending to be married to the irritating man while figuring out who is behind a stretch of murders may push Charlie over the edge...if she doesn't push Vince off a cliff first.Vince Franklin loves his job at Alpha Security. He gets to work with his friends, stay close to his family, and kick the ever loving shit out of some of the world's nastiest bad-asses. Annoying the hell out of the foul-talking, tattooed Brit who he has the temporary pleasure of calling his wife is just an added perk. He knows what this op means to her, and he isn't about to screw it up. But both their budding relationship and their assignment is threatened when the killer they're searching for sets his sights on Charlie.
