After quitting his job, Billie Watts hits all the food festivals he can as he drives across the country. When he finally reaches Stoney Brook, Maine, he’s excited to find he’s there just in time to try one of the lobster rolls he’s heard so much about. The bright neon yellow food truck with a giant red lobster on top looks like the perfect place to try it.
Lance Karl is as ready as he can be for the start of the three-day Tall Ships Festival and hopes to sell enough lobster rolls out of his food truck to make a good start towards owning a restaurant. The day begins cold and misty, and a text from his nephew saying he can’t help him is not the perfect start he’d hoped for.
When a green-eyed stranger interrupts his frantic morning, Lance doesn’t realize meeting Billie will not only change his day, but maybe even the rest of his life. Two strangers, drawn together over their work ethic, and sealing the deal over delicious lobster rolls. They could just be the perfect match. A small-town MM Vacation romance.
I hadn’t realized that I had not read anything by this author as of yet. I keep meaning to, but just hadn’t gotten to it, so I was determined to read this one, and I wasn’t disappointed.
If you aren’t into insta-love, this one isn’t for you. This was definitely a bit of love at first sight, or pretty darn close. Even better, though, they found they had a ton in common, right away, so it wasn’t just about lust, it was about their love of working in the food industry, and working together, whether on a food truck, when Billie shows up to save Lance’s day, or for a catering job to help Billie’s family out. They work really well together.
There wasn’t really any angst in this book, even when they realized they hadn’t told each other everything, but how much can you really tell someone in just a few days, especially when those days are spent working your tail off serving people food? Billie and Lance just clicked from the beginning, and it worked. They saw each other’s skills, and let them know they appreciated all the ways they helped each other out. They had fun and fell in love, all over lobster rolls. Nothing could be better. 🙂
