Meg Tilly returns with a second gripping romantic suspense novel set on the idyllic Solace Island in the Pacific Northwest.
Eve Harris is all set to house-sit and run the bakery she shares with her sister while Maggie goes on her honeymoon, but there’s one problem–the house is already occupied. By a movie star. He claims to be her brother-in-law’s friend, and not only does he insist on staying, he also offers to help. Playing house has never been so tempting…
Rhys Thomas is looking for a place to lie low after wrapping up his latest film, so when Luke offers up his house as a safe haven, Rhys sees the perfect opportunity for a little R & R. But rest is the last thing on his mind as he and Eve grow close.
But Eve and Rhys are not as alone as they think. And as danger trails Eve, it will take everything Rhys has to save the woman he loves.
What a lovely surprise! I loved this sexy and funny and warm romantic suspense. Fans of Kristen Ashley will devour this one.
Eve Harris is left alone to run a cafe that she owns with her sister Maggie when Maggie goes on her honeymoon. Eve is also going to dog sit for Maggie and her husband Luke’s Wolfhound Samson. Soon after Eve arrives,though, she realizes that there is another house guest: Luke’s old friend Rhys, a famous actor who is seeking some much-needed some peace and quiet in the small town of Solace Island.
Eve has had her heart broken and isn’t interested in men. But she enlists Rhys to help her run the cafe while Maggie is away and soon their banter and flirting turns into something more. Eve isn’t interested in being just a fling but Rhys and Eve have fabulous chemistry and soon he falls in love with the gorgeous Solace Island and the beautiful, funny and artistic Eve.
“However, for the record, I’m tired of short-term. Am looking for something more. Whether that ‘something more’ is you?” He shrugged. “Who knows? But I’m not so chickenshit that I’m going to tuck tail and run without exploring if there’s a possibility for something more.”
But Rhys isn’t the only one interested in Eve. There is a criminal lurking around Solace Island and he has hit sights set on Eve.
‘Cliff’s Edge’ is an engaging and lively story with lots of action and sexy, steamy romance. This was my first book by Meg Tilly and I enjoyed every minute. I was surprised at the well-written romantic scenes and the absorbing characters. While the second book the ‘Solace Island’ series, this book can be read as a complete standalone. If you are looking for a low-angst, sexy and witty story with adult characters with adult issues and concerns, then you will love this book. And read through the Acknowledgments for a lovely surprise from the author! I highly recommend this captivating and romantic tale.
Home is not a physical place, he thought, smiling up into the darkness. It’s a state of being. And right now, in this very moment, I am home.
