***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Trouble is the last thing Devon Brown needs when she leaves the painful memories of her past behind and heads to Shell Island. As the Salty Dog’s new bartender, she finds herself drawn to Kerr, the Shell Island harbormaster. But finding her happily-ever-after is difficult when dealing with an obnoxious bootlegger who supplies the bar with illegal liquor and a jealous coworker.
A standoffish loner with damaged emotions, Kerr avoids relationships like the plague. Things change when Devon catches his eye. As a simple flirtation grows serious, the coworker and bootlegger quickly become obstacles to any future Kerr and Devon may have together. As the situation worsens, Devon realizes that even the still waters of Asylum Harbor are no refuge during a storm.
You also meet Kerr. We don’t know much about him either and that I think hurt the book. I would have liked to know more about his past, about why he feels Diane is no good and why he is so closed off. Kerr shuts everyone out, yet he automatically opens up to Devon. It was a little confusing as to why he did that.
I enjoyed most of the story. There were somethings that were incredibly funny, like any exchange with Mrs. Foster. She’s such a crazy old lady and I loved her. I also enjoyed some of the exchanges between Devon and Victoria. They were incredibly entertaining. There were things, though, that just didn’t make sense or seem to have any relevance to the story. Questions were raised but never answered. It made for a lot of confusion and struggle for me as a reader to get through.
