I couldn’t find any information about PJ Lincoln. He/she doesn’t have an author page on Amazon or Goodreads. He/she should get one.
Regan is struggling to extract herself from a relationship with a possessive guy. Matt is trying get over his failed seven-year marriage. When they bump into each other on Cocoa Beach, FL, sparks fly.
Because I’m writing one, I’ve been reading a lot of romance novels lately. I’ve found the genre to be a mixed bag. In particular, I find ‘the middle’ often gets bogged down with repetitive concerns popping up in the main couple’s inner thoughts. Even when the romance portion of the story works well, I’m often frustrated by unlikely events or backstory being artificially inserted to drive the plot forward.
In The Sunshine avoided both of my pet peeves. This is a cozy romance, neatly told. The author’s writing style is light and easy on the eye. The main characters, Regan and Matt, both had believable back stories and logical reasons for being where they were, both geographically, and personally.
I read the story in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed the tale. A nice, light romance with a feel good factor.
Too few to mention.
