Note: This short story originally appeared in the anthology From Florida with Love: Moonlight & Steamy Nights.
Serina Spring is trading in her blossoming real estate career in Manhattan and an ex-boyfriend to start anew in Naples, Florida. But playing cards with her matchmaking grandmother was not exactly the exciting new life she had in mind.
So, when Serina spies a handsome stranger at an open house, she thinks her luck just might be changing. Then again? Maybe not.
Fortunately, while on the white sandy beaches of Southwest Florida, Serina discovers that all is not what it seems if you just open yourself up to fate.
Point of view:
3rd Person. Entirely from Serina’s perspective.
Being a fan of Tara September’s other work, I was thrilled to snag this new release during Audible’s big sale last month. At just under an hour this was a quick low-angst listen. Entirely from Serina’s perspective, it’s an enjoyable “how they got together” closed door romance. (the spicy factor is a few internal musings and a single kiss toward the end) While this short story is not exactly a “meet cute” it had a lot of the traits I love about those.
This was my first time listening to Elizabeth Klett and I thought she was the perfect fit for the story.
