A second chance for romance...
Hidden in Graystone Manor is a book containing all the dark secrets of Harmony Harbor, and Ava DiRossi is determined to find it. No one - especially not her ex-husband, Griffin Gallagher - can ever discover what really tore her life apart all those years ago. With Griffin back in town, it's more important than ever that she find the book before someone else does. Because her ex is still angry with her for leaving him. And he still has no idea Ava never stopped loving him....
Ava is no longer the vibrant, happy woman Griffin had once loved and married, and he would do anything to bring back the sparkle to her brilliant green eyes. But what's never changed are the sexy sparks of attraction between Ava and Griffin, and he won't give her up again without a fight. He knows there's the real possibility of a future together...if the truth doesn't burn the bridge between them forever.

Fantastic Story of Lost Loves and Moving Forward!
Starlight Bridge is a wonderful and thoroughly entertaining book written by Debbie Mason. It is the 2nd book in the Harmony Harbor series and like the previous book in the series (Mistletoe Cottage), the basic premise is one of lost loves and the "one that got away." I simply loved it! It had everything I want in a good book - great secondary characters, lots of humor, a little mystery and intrigue, and a relatively clean romance.
The heroine of this story is Ava DiRossi who is currently a maid at Greystone Manor, a run down old estate that was turned into a destination hotel decades earlier. Sophie (who was featured in Mistletoe Cottage) is now the manager at Greystone and she offered Ava the opportunity to become the head chef in the inn's restaurant, but Ava declined using her paralyzed (and abusive) father as the reason she couldn't accept. As if she didn't have enough problems to juggle, her ex-husband Griffin Gallagher moves back to town and is staying at the Manor. And to make matters even worse, she still loves him.
What makes the Harmony Harbor series so much better than most in this genre is the excellent writing and dialogue. The conversations between Ava and Griffin are so natural and believable and the chemistry between the two is simply combustible. There are also several interesting supporting characters who I'm sure will end up being featured in their own Harmony Harbor books in the future. Plus the funniest parts of the story are with the Manor's resident ghost who keeps a careful watch over her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There is also a secondary plot where a few in the community want the Gallaghers to sell the Manor to a developer who intends to tear it down, while others who work at Greystone (Ava and Sophie) want to save it because in doing so, it will save the livelihoods of other local residents who rely on the Manor in their own businesses.
Becket Royce narrated this audiobook and she is simply fantastic. Beckett's style is very natural with smooth overtones and subtle character nuances for each of the characters. I can't help but become totally immersed while listening to her narrations. She makes me laugh out loud and even shed a few tears. I can't wait for the next book in this series!
