A reclusive movie star and heartbroken journalist form an unlikely pair in this alluring contemporary debut. Cait Macleod’s philandering husband died during sex with his mistress. Angry and grieving, Cait retreats to Gandiegow, Scotland, her childhood home, but she arrives to find that her charming cottage has burned down. When she goes next door for help, her neighbor turns out to be hunky actor Graham Buchanan. Cait is surprised to learn that he lives in Gandiegow, as do his son, Duncan, and grandson, Mattie. Cait accepts Graham’s offer to rent her a room at his pub, but she’s determined to prove her independence and rekindle her flagging career, so she decides to pitch an exclusive story about Graham to People magazine. As she falls in love with the people of the close-knit fishing community—including Graham, its favorite son—she must grapple with an apparent choice between romance and vocation. Griffin’s lyrical and moving debut marks her as a most talented newcomer to the romance genre. (June)
