Will the 4th of July fireworks light the way to freedom from the past and perhaps the blossoming of new love for Summer and Ace in Friday Harbor?
Seattle marketing specialist Summer Connelly welcomes the assignment to supervise the construction of a company float for the annual 4th of July parade in Friday Harbor, WA. Not only will it be a chance to prove her leadership skills to her boss, but an opportunity for a much-needed escape, especially since she hasn’t taken any time off since her divorce was finalized over a year ago.
Ace Lockhart works himself to the bone at his Portland contracting company, but something in his life feels off. When doctors tell him his elderly father has taken a turn for the worse, he heads to Friday Harbor to be with the old man, simply because no one else in the family will even speak to him.
As fate would have it, Summer’s plans for the parade look like they could go up in smoke before any fireworks are even set off. Can Ace be the ticket to light at the end of the tunnel? Will their days together lead to fireworks in more ways than one?

This is an enjoyable and engaging short romance. That both live in Seattle but meet on San Juan Island allows for a wonderful romantic setting as well the possibility of long term relationship development when they return from their Friday Harbor experiences. There is a bit of tension when the float Summer is overseeing looks like it will end in disaster. There is a bit of an emotional tug when Ace's father nears death and there is hope the estranged daughter will visit before its too late.
This is a fun inspirational romantic novella that makes for a good read of an evening.
My rating: 4/5 stars.

I visited Friday Harbor several years ago and loved its quaint charm & the people I met who live there year-round. My visit was the inspiration for this book.
