Carrying on the tale of “The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove,” USA Today bestselling author Donna Kauffman heads back to the shores of Maine introducing readers to Grace Maddox who has left her job and used her life savings to purchase an old boathouse to turn into an inn. Former owner, and current neighbor, Brodie Monaghan doesn’t take too kindly to the under-the-table deal selling off his family property, but the Irish heartthrob does take to Maddox.
