Celia Langford lost her perfect life in the ultimate betrayal - not only was her late husband a cheat, he left her with a mountain of debt and no self-confidence. She poured her grief into cooking, determined to start new and heal by the sea. She meets Dax Smith, local dive shop owner and purebred South Florida native. The wrong city girl left a bad taste in his mouth, so he's stayed clear of all matters of the heart. His father is ill; her business is not going as planned. But their uncontrollable attraction toward one another makes anything seem possible.

Love Is Sweeter the 2nd Time Around
This book had a unique story-line since the main character Celia is a recent widow. Most books are about someone's "first love," but this one is a little different. Celia's husband dies in a skydiving accident with his mistress while he is filming it. Celia watches the video and realizes the marriage was a farce.
I really enjoyed the part where Celia was trying to change a tire outside of a store where she bought a can of "Fix-a-Flat" and it exploded all over her while a handsome guy she had just met was watching through the store window.
Celia was portrayed so well by Cynthia. Her voice came across as a pleasant upbeat personality even though Celia was mourning the loss of her husband. Celia wasn't really mourning his loss but she was mourning the loss of the happy life she thought they should have had.
I did not have a extreme reaction to this book but I must say I did have a very pleasing reaction to it. It was a nice story with nice people and it had a happy ending.
This book was gifted to me by Traci Hall in exchange for an honest review. She is an amazing writer and I hope to be gifted more of her wonderful books !

Sweet story - annoying narration
I like the premise of the beach being a place to 'escape' to. It's worked for me! Also, turning the narration up to 1.5x so it was't as annoying.
I like how Celia was ready to pick up and start over in a new place, sight unseen, to recover from not only the loss of her husband to a tragic accident, but discovering his infidelity at the same time.
I felt the narrator was reading in a way meant to be sexy and sultry, but at the same time sound like a disney princess. It was extremely annoying, and I almost gave up on the book.
