ARC provided by NetGalley

Peyton Locate and her sisters have inherited Bishop’s Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit—only then will they own it.

A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic. Out of work and in a bad place personally, a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful.

There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop the sisters from succeeding. Among them are Peyton’s contentious cousins, who are outraged that they didn’t inherit the resort, as well as a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property.

It’s soon apparent to Peyton that their efforts are being sabotaged, but she refuses to let the threats scare her—until she’s nearly killed. She calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. He saved her life once; he can do it again.

Book Review 

Julie Garwood is one of those authors you know will never disappoint. She is the Mistress of Romantic Suspense and writes a compelling story that you can't seem to read fast enough. Her characters are always richly developed and the plot filled with multiple layers, sometimes complex, but never overwhelming. 

Finn and Peyton share a history--with Finn rescuing Peyton from drowning in her pool when she was a child. Now, as adults, the two meet up and Peyton has trouble knocking down her door. Finn, who works for the FBI is the man who will stop at nothing to protect her. 

Although this book is part of a series, you can read it as a stand-alone. But reading a series in order is so much more fun. It's like stepping back into the lives of the characters and catching up with what has been happening in their lives. 

Garwood fans will not be disappointed with Hotshot--it delivers a solid story and likable characters with amazing chemistry.
