Blog Tour: Bungalow Nights by Christie Ridgway

Author: Christie Ridgway
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: February 2013

Crescent Cove, California, where the magic of summer can last forever...  Combat medic Vance Smith made a promise to a fallen officer: to treat the man's young daughter to an idyllic vacation at Beach House No. 9. One month, some sun and surf, a "helmet list" of activities to check off and Vance will move on. But the "little girl" he's expecting turns out to be a full-grown woman. With silky hair, big brown eyes and smelling sweetly of the cupcakes she makes for her mobile bakery, Layla Parker is irresistible. And Vance shouldn't lay a finger on her. Honor-and one heck of a scarred heart-says so. 

To Layla, Vance is a hero who was injured trying to save her father's life. She intends to spend their month of lazy days and warm nights taking very good care of the gorgeous soldier-inside and out....

Bungalow Nights is the second book in the Crescent Cove series by Ms. Ridgway.  If you are looking for a sexy and heartwarming story then Bungalow Nights is just the thing!  I started this book after reading a very disturbing horror novel.  Boy was this a soothing balm for my soul.  The story is not just a romance, it deals with healing, reconciliation, forgiveness and acceptance.  There is a lost packed into this sweet story!  I didn't want to put it down!

Not only do we get to watch Vance and Layla fall in love, we also are treated to Addy and Baxter's story.  I loved both couples and would have a hard time picking which one to choose as a favorite.  Even though this is the second in the series  I never felt like I was missing anything.  Characters from the first book, Beach House No. 9, do show up in this one, but only briefly.  I look forward to reading it as well as the third one, The Love Shack.  Ms. Riggway is a new to me author.  Her books will be showing up on my TBR Pile for sure!
