Descripción

Eclipse Bay has grown and flourished on the rugged Oregon coast, where the shore can be rocky and forbidding, full of sharp cliffs and hidden coves. But this small town is also filled with secrets as treacherous as the landscape - and rivalries as fierce as an ocean storm...

Their grandfathers hated each other.
Their fathers hated each other.

And as the next generation of Hartes and Madisons, Hannah and Rafe are expected to hate each other too. But Hannah Harte - a successful wedding consultant with a skeptical view of marriage - remembers the long-ago night on the beach that revealed Rafe as much more than just "that disreputable Madison boy." And Rafe remembers the heroic gesture that proved Hannah's fierce spirit was stronger than any feud - and saved him from near - certain imprisonment.

Now - reunited by a surprising inheritance after years of living their separate lives - Rafe and Hannah return to Eclipse Bay, and the hostilities that still divide, and bind, their families. And they are discovering something that is at once delightful and deeply disturbing...

They don't hate each other. Not at all...

    A combination romance/mystery. An easy read. Enjoyable. Sequels are obvious based on ending.

    4 Stars

    Synopsis
    In the small town of Eclipse Bay nothing is more certain than the Harte/Madison feud. Hannah Harte and Rafe Madison are expected to continue the tradition but when they are thrust together by an unexpected inheritance, they soon discover that what they feel for each other is far from hatred. Unfortunately, their return to Eclipse Bay has also awakened a dormant threat that may jeopardize everything they are working toward.

    Review
    A sweet romance and a solid mystery.

    The suspense plot builds slowly but surely toward a conclusion and while this aspect of the story is enjoyable, it fizzles at the end. There are a number of obvious red herrings that obscure the identity of the eventual culprit almost too well.

    Dialogue and character development are two of Krentz's trademark skills and Eclipse Bay is no exception. Rafe's grandfather and the town eccentric, Arizona Snow, are particularly noteworthy in these areas, and Hannah's pet Schnauzer, Winston, has definite character all of his own.

    Rafe and Hannah have good chemistry and their romance is believable because they compliment one another. Rafe is almost too perfect (he's gorgeous, intelligent and can cook), and Hannah is so intent on looking for perfection, she nearly misses it standing in front of her. While she is a likeable character, she can also be overbearingly bossy and aggravating at times.

    The family feud theme is the weakest point in the book as it is not sufficiently developed, and fails to resonate with the reader because the core feelings of animosity between the two families is sorely lacking.

    In sum, an easy, cute and entertaining read. The next installment with Gabe and Lillian is set up nicely and I look forward to reading it.

    A modern day romance with a touch of Romeo and Juliet, a hunky leading man, a murder mystery, and a beautiful beach setting.

    I wanted to love this book, I really did, but it fell flat in a few areas.

    Rafe is the small town bad-boy from the Madison family. With a history of failed marriages, his goal in life is to stay out of jail. Rafe cooks like a God, looks like a God, and apparently has the patience of a God to put up with Hannah.

    Hannah, daughter of the feuding family, the Harts, is a prissy, high strung, wedding planner with a list of her "Mr. Right" qualifications and a tendency to have a melt down whenever things don't go according to plan. Her dog is adorable, but Hannah leaves much to be desired.

    When her Aunt dies, she leaves her mansion, Dreamscape, equally to Hannah and Rafe in an awkward attempt to play matchmaking to Hannah and Rafe who both have ideas of opening an Inn/Inn-Restaurant on the property.

    The romance is shaky at best as Hannah is not a very likable character, although Rafe is. All through the novel I was hoping to get a glimpse of whatever magical quality Hannah possessed that made Rafe so interested in her, but I honestly, have no idea. The romance scenes were steamy, but the romance itself was week. And the "Hart" vs. "Madison" reminder was repeated so many times it got annoying. The characters couldn't do much of anything without identifying if it was a "Hart" or a "Madison" trait.

    Through in an odd murder investigation, a quirky old grandfather, and a weird lady with a conspiracy theory and you have an interesting read, but not a can't-put-it-down novel.

    I'm a huge fan of Jayne Anne Krentz and find her extremely talented, but this book fell a little short.

    It's a good easy read or beach book, but not a favorite.

    They're not quite as violent as the Hatfields and McCoys, but the Hartes and the Madisons go back a long, unfriendly way. The feud may have started with their grandfathers, but Hannah Harte and Rafe Madison are on a collision course all their own - and Eclipse Bay may never be the same again.Populated with quirky characters, including Hannah's dapper dog, Winston, it's an entertaining way to spend an afternoon - even if the end is a foregone conclusion.

    Compulsively readable with likable characters, but the book moved kind of slow at times, losing the story line in "OMG REALLY?!?" discussions about the suspenseful happenings. Editor could have hacked out about 75 pages of fluff to make this book move faster - or the love story needed to be fleshed out a bit more. Kind of felt like "hate you, hate you, hate you" then bam! "love you!!" there wasnt really any falling in love, it just all of a sudden WAS. meh.

    I really liked this story! I’m excited that it’s a series and that I get to follow these characters a little further. Both Rafe and Hannah are incredibly independent individuals and to see them come together was fun. Hannah is very naive which was a little annoying at times, but it still worked for her in this book. The little bit of drama that the two were involved in gave the story something more than just a love story. Most of all, their honesty and determination carry them through the investigation of who killed a young girl 8 years ago, and that same determination brings them together. I suppose that the investigation into the death of Rafe’s old girlfriend eight years prior was a little bit of a stretch. After 8 years, you wouldn’t think that finding the killer would be possible, but Rafe and Hannah uncover the secrets and in the end bridge the gap between their families. Overall, this was a quick easy read and very enjoyable. I’m really liking Krentz’s stuff and look forward to several that she’s got coming out!
