Falling for the Prodigal Son by Julia Gabriel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Disclosure: I received this book as an ARC from Netgalley.
Chesapeake Bay houses the sleepy town of St. Caroline and the Chesapeake Inn run by the Matthew family. The story written from the perspective of Lucy Wyndham a former camper at the Chesapeake Inn's summer camp for disadvantaged kids and now the PR director. When the Inn's owner's health declines his wife steps in and brings Sterling Matthew the heir back from Europe to take his place. Sterling Matthew must make major changes in order to get the books in order and get the Inn back into the black. Those changes also include eliminating the camp that changed Lucy's life. Her battle with Sterling is just the beginning of a lot more.
The main character Lucy Wyndham is complex and well written. I like the transformation process she undergoes in her desire to convince Sterling as well as the romance that blossoms. The overall storyline was very good as well it weaves an intricate web of conflicts both internal and external to the main two characters dynamic. I would definitely read more from Julia Gabriel and could see myself falling deeper into the characters she creates.
