MY KIND OF YOU (Trillium Bay #1)

MY KIND OF YOU                                       TRACY BROGAN

Emily Callaghan never expected to spend another summer on Wenniway Island. Yet here she is, back in her quaint northern Michigan hometown of Trillium Bay, divorced, flat broke, and dragging along her precocious twelve-year-old. It’s a simple arrangement: Emily, a house flipper, will renovate one of her grandmother’s rental properties in exchange for a much-needed loan. Once a wild child, the reformed Emily also hopes to remodel her reputation and show her family she’s all grown up.

But coming home is never simple. Emily’s dad is more distant than ever. Her younger sister is dating a much older man, and Emily’s worried it’s a mistake. The cottage remodel grows increasingly daunting. And then there’s handsome out-of-towner Ryan Taggert…

Ryan has his own family drama. A smart, ambitious land developer, he’s come to Wenniway to rescue his father from the grips of a new girlfriend and protect their family business. But he’s quickly distracted by gorgeous, witty Emily Callaghan.

There’s no denying the attraction between Emily and Ryan. But will their conflicting interests destroy any chance at love? Or will Emily finally get the chance to rebuild her life—and repair her heart?

     This was such a funny book.  As you know I love family sagas.  This one did not disappoint at all.  The standout character would have to be Chloe.  She was a hoot.
     This story was about Emily Callaghan and her daughter Chloe going home to a small island in Michigan for the summer.  Emily has been a single mother for the last 7 years officially but since day one unofficially.
     She has had basically no family support of her choosing because her father (Chief of Police) did not make it easy to reach out and ask for help.  All because being young and impulsive.  She ran off with a non-islander and got married.  At the time, she thought she was in love.  About the time, she realized she made a mistake it was about the time she was pregnant.  Not really ideal.
     She would never regret her marriage ever for just that reason.  When a risky business deal fails beyond bad she asks Gigi (her grandmother) to help her out (not a handout).  To pay her back she agrees that on top of paying her back when the house finally flips that she will remodel her rental cottage.
     On the last stop over they meet Ryan Taggert.  They can’t make the last thirty-minute flight due to engine trouble.  They share a taxi to the actual nearest town.  In route, they find out Ryan’s on his way to the island to save his father from marrying a money hungry bimbo.  Who was putting his claws into his millionaire father?
     Well, let me just say there is a lot more than her claws sinkin’ in, on and around his father that is for sure.  There is a lot of things going on in and on that small town too.  But the best part is Chloe is making new friends and is accepted for who she is and Emily has a work crew with personality and quirks but a lot of heart.  Most of all there’s laughter.  I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by
