One summer, two sisters and a chance to start over…
Before the burglary that shattered her confidence, Phoenix Rose had a fiancé, a successful store and a busy, happy existence. After months spent adrift, she takes a job at the lakeside resort of Cooper’s Charm. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, friendly colleagues and a charismatic, widowed boss, Phoenix is slowly inching her way back into the world.
Visiting Cooper’s Charm to check up on her little sister, Ridley Rose impulsively agrees to fill in as housekeeper. Still reeling from an ego-bruising divorce, she finds satisfaction in a job well done—and in the attention of the resort’s handsome scuba instructor.
For Phoenix and Ridley, Cooper’s Charm is supposed to be merely temporary. But this detour may lead to the place they most need to be, where the future is as satisfying as it is surprising…
Cooper’s Charm is perfect for a day at the beach or pool! Combing family and romance, Foster creates an endearing story that will have you tearing up, swooning, and sighing in content!
Phoenix is restarting her life after leaving her business and fiancee behind. Ridley is coming to Cooper’s Charm to check up on her sister (Phoenix). Ridley is also looking for a fresh start after her divorce. The story combines all the allure of a small town setting-fun secondary characters, picturesque setting, and swoony heroes! Phoenix and Ridley’s stories are heartwarming and a good reminder that there is hope after tragedy. I also loved the sister bond! Books that show positive family relationships are not as common as I would like, so that made Ridley and Phoenix extra special. And the final point that made me absolutely love the book? A puppy!!!!
Cooper’s Charm is a great pick if you want something that focuses on character building, dynamic characters, personal growth, and small town charm. There isn’t much action and overall, the story is predictable, but sometimes, those books are exactly what you need! Put this in your beach bag for sure!
