I thought for sure all this rain and wind would keep our Elf on the Shelf at Santa’s Workshop today. I woke up this morning and I thought a fan was on in the room. It was actually the sound of the loudest and hardest rain I have ever heard. Crazy! I usually don’t worry too much about rain, but it was coming down really hard. I wondered if the roof could hold or if there was a lot of damage being done in the yard. Then occurred to me that the rain is so crazy out there, that maybe our elf couldn’t make it back from the North Pole last night. I hopped out of bed with a spring in my step. I was filled with joyous energy. My first thought was to drink alcohol and curse. Maybe sing a dirty sea shanty. OH MAN! So many fun plans. Then I walked into the living room and found the elf sitting on the cabinet… smiling. ERG! No booze and sea shanties again today.

Can she bring justice to the island… or will the hidden currents surrounding her pull her under for good?

She looked at the telegram in horror, the words blurring in front of her eyes. She dropped to her knees, feeling that her entire world was ending. The paper slipped from her hands as she put her head in hands, sobs wracking her chest…

1942, New York. As war rages in Europe, Lily Rose is grateful for her perfect life: the love of her wealthy uptown parents in their beautiful brownstone overlooking the park and her dream job as a chef at one of New York’s finest restaurants, the art deco dream that is Valentino’s. But in her heart, Lily is drawn towards the bohemian Sicilian community in Greenwich Village, where gorgeous fresh fruit spills onto the pavement and the smell of freshly baked cannoli tempt her inside every Italian deli.

Part of the attraction is Tom Morelli, talented chef at Valentino’s and handsome grandson of Sicilian immigrants, whose deep brown eyes call to her and set her heart on fire. As wartime rationing bites in the city, Lily and Tom stay up late, dreaming up delicious meals that will see Valentino’s through the war and distract New Yorkers from the threat of sons and sweethearts being called up. Lily knows he has found the key to her heart.

Then Tom receives a devastating summons that changes everything: he is drafted to Italy. He must return to his beautiful homeland to fight a desperate war.

Suddenly alone, with only the memory of Tom’s last kiss, Lily turns to her parents for support. But when her mother finds out about her relationship, she is furious. When the war ends, Lily’s duty is to marry the man picked for her, raise children and never work again. They give her a heartbreaking ultimatum: end her relationship with Tom and give up her job or lose her family and inheritance forever.

Lily knows she must follow her heart to Valentino’s and to Tom. But when Tom is declared missing in action, Lily is totally heartbroken. If she pursues her dreams, will there be anything left for her when the war is over?

From top-ten bestseller Ella Carey comes an utterly heartbreaking historical novel, inspired by true events, about the courage, love and friendships that sustain us in the darkest of days. Fans of Fiona Davis, Rhys Bowen and The Nightingale will be captivated.

Diving into Love (Starlight Ridge Book 1)
by Kat Bellemore
4.3 Stars (819 Reviews)
Genre: Romance | Contemporary Fiction

FREE for a limited time

She already left one fiancé. She didn’t need another.

When Bree Garrett’s former college roommate invites Bree to move to Starlight Ridge, a small tourist town on the Californian coast, she is all too happy to leave the deserts of New Mexico and the memories of her former life. She only has three conditions:

One- No one can find out about her fear of water — totally embarrassing when you live next to the ocean.

Two- No seafood. She can’t stomach it. Yeah, she sees the irony of points number one and two.

Three- No blind dates. The last thing she needs is a relationship. Her ex-fiancé would agree.

Easier said than done when the only job available is at a surf shop and the owner, Caleb, is under the impression that Bree has applied to be a scuba instructor, and not a cashier, as she had intended.

Bree tries to clear up the misunderstanding, but it’s hard when she seems to lose her voice — and her breath — every time Caleb is near. How could she not when he happens to be attractive, single and, as it turns out, also doesn’t like seafood?

Bree and Caleb struggle against the pull of the tide that seems determined to bring them together. But, despite their differences, maybe this is one battle that is okay to lose.

Diving into Love is the first book in the Starlight Ridge romance series. If you can’t get enough of witty banter, moonlit strolls on the beach, and swoon-worthy kisses, you’ll love this sweet romance.
