Celeste Jones has plans for a perfect summer with her boyfriend (and
hopefully soon-to-be fiancé)—until he dumps her to be with the woman
he’s had on the side for months. Heartbroken and furious, Celeste
resolves to move on. When the going gets tough, the tough…okay, the
not-so-tough go to the beach.

As soon as school lets out for the summer, she waves goodbye to her
first-graders, packs up her bikini and heads for Moonlight Harbor, where
she knows her big sister, Jenna, will receive her with open arms. Jenna

and what a great year it had been. He’d spent so much time at her place, he
might as well have moved in, but he felt it wouldn’t look good, with her being
a teacher and all. As if first-graders knew anything about the birds and the
bees or cared what their teacher did in her off hours. As if anyone cared what
anyone did with anyone else these days. It had been sweet of him to think of
that, though, and she loved him all the more for it.
Still, why not make what they had official since it was so great?
“We’re having a good time,” he was always saying. “Relax and enjoy the ride.”
She could do that.
Spring had come, and she was looking ahead to a summer of off-roading, trips to
Eastern Washington to visit the wineries, hitting the

  1. What a fun read this sounds like. Getting dumps by someone that is not deserving still hurts, but moving on to Mr. Right is a good thing.

    Have a fabulous day, Jody. Love you bunches. ♥
