Synopsis via GoodReads: I came to Whispering Key for a job. That was all. To show the world Mason Bloom could be more than a small-town doctor living a medium-sized life.
Private doctor on a swanky island with a posh resort? Check.
But from the moment I set foot on this island, nothing went according to plan.
I didn’t expect to find the resort falling apart.
I didn’t expect the people here to be so charming and crazy and welcoming and real.
I didn’t expect legends about shipwrecks and buried treasure.
And I definitely didn’t expect Fenn Reardon, the island’s incredibly attractive, incredibly infuriating, incredibly male resident tour guide, to become the one person I can’t live without.
Thirty-five’s a bit late for me to realize I’m not straight, though, right? And I have big dreams that won’t fit on Whispering Key, anyway—dreams that do not include tying myself to a tiny island stuck in the past or to a man who refuses to think about the future.
My head’s telling me I have to leave Whispering Key…
My heart’s telling me there might be treasure on this island after all.
Review: Cute story. Think Hart of Dixie, only Zoe Hart is played by a cute, well dressed, somewhat nerdy, easily flustered and talks too much when he’s nervous, gay man, and you have this story. Complete with funny side characters and busybodies in a run-down, small Florida beach town. Ms. Archer has a gift for banter with these two. I busted out laughing enough times that the people around me were giving me the side-eye. I enjoyed the hell out of them and their quirky friends. A good pick-me-up if you feel the need.
