Secrets are revealed and forbidden sparks ignited in this sizzling Sunrise Cove standalone, a tale of enemies to lovers, redemption, missing treasures, and love

Anna Moore didn’t just wake up one day and decide to go on a wild quest—especially since her life no longer lends itself to wild anything—so how in the world does she end up racing against the clock with Owen Harris, a sexy, enigmatic adventurist, to prove her beloved dad innocent of stealing a million-dollar necklace?

It’s all Wendy’s fault. Her older, bossy sister, who’s seven months pregnant and on bed rest in their small Lake Tahoe hometown, is desperate to clear their departed dad’s name. Owen, though, is convinced he’s guilty as hell and wants to return the jewelry back to its rightful owner—his elderly great aunt. Together Anna and Owen go on a scavenger hunt for clues to the past (with Wendy remotely along for the ride via an earbud, supplying a running wry commentary to boot).

On opposing sides and suspicious of each other as they are, Anna and Owen still can’t deny the inexplicable and explosive chemistry between them on this heart-stopping adventure, the outcome of which will prove the necklace isn’t the only thing stolen—their hearts have been as well.


Chock-full of Shalvis’ signature wit, emotional turmoil and endearing characters! Sunrise Cove is one of my very favorite places to visit time and time again. The characters in this series don’t overlap as some do, but the setting of a small town in Tahoe is always good for a relaxing setting as humor and romance warm my heart. Anna and Owen are both really easy to like and sympathize with even though they start out on conflicting sides and as their attraction grows and secrets unravel, their connection only continues to shine as we follow along on their journey. I loved every minute of them, her crazy sister and the drama they run into on their way to forever.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys rom com at it’s best with addictive characters, chuckles throughout and so much heart to sink your teeth into!
