    With a tight budget and two months, Eva Delacroix has to turn six dilapidated cottages on Lake Huron into a shabby chic tourist destination. Fulfilling her father's renovation dreams and her own needs for family, Blue Heaven is Eva's last resort.

     Daniel Bryman will do anything in his power to stop city girl Eva from destroying the integrity of the historic structures his ancestor built. But as they work together to rebuild the main cabin, Eva's determination makes him question his own life choices.

     Despite their opposing views, they do agree on what to do with the attraction between them. When everything they've built threatens to crash down around them, will love be enough to save Blue Heaven?

    Excerpt:

    “There’s an obese cat in your shed,” Bob, the paint and plaster guy, said. A full crew had shown up that morning and the cottages, if being turned inside out was any indication, were well on their way to restoration. Every cottage door was open, every little yard space had a set of tools lined up outside the door. Rotted wood and crumbling toilet seats, rusted pipes, a broken cupboard, all were being hauled and dumped into a giant green garbage bin by competent-looking men.

    Eva was just glad someone other than she had gone into the cobweb-ridden shed. Bob looked very young, but seemed in control. He’d already set up the shed as construction headquarters, and she noticed that a lot of the guys conferred with him before ripping anything out of the cottages.

    “Whose cat?” Eva asked.

    “Yours,” Bob said.

    “Oh.” Eva mentally added cat food to her shopping list.

    “Keeps the rodent population down,” Bob said.

    After negotiating with these guys, she’d agreed to offer them what folks kept referring to as “day’s wages” which she finally figured out was one hundred dollars cash for every day they worked. A bargain, but after she’d struck it, she’d realized it didn’t include taxes. She’d figure how to pay taxes later. Meanwhile, time estimates were spot on. If all went well, the cottages should be ready for occupancy ahead of schedule. And then she could build her second story.

    As she handed Bob the paint chips she’d picked out for the cottages, a different pastel shade for each, she casually asked him how he knew Daniel.

    “He’s my brother,” Bob said, stuffing the paint samples into his back pocket and heading off to Port Huron for supplies.

    Eva took advantage of the gorgeous sunshine to walk on the beach. Nobody was out yet, the weather was too raw. Windy with a chill in the air. Well, maybe one other person was brave enough, she thought, her heart now beating faster as she recognized the figure running toward her. Daniel.
