One summer, two sisters and a chance to start over…

Before the burglary that shattered her confidence, Phoenix Rose had a fiancĂ©, a successful store, and a busy, happy existence. After months spent adrift, she takes a job at the lakeside resort of Cooper’s Charm. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, friendly colleagues and a charismatic, widowed boss, Phoenix is slowly inching her way back into the world.

Visiting Cooper’s Charm to check up on her little sister, Ridley Rose impulsively agrees to fill in as housekeeper. Still reeling from an ego-bruising divorce, she finds satisfaction in a job well done—and in the attention of the resort’s handsome scuba instructor.

For Phoenix and Ridley, Cooper’s Charm is supposed to be merely temporary. But this detour may lead to the place they most need to be, where the future is as satisfying as it is surprising…

Cooper's Charm is a story about survival, overcoming the odds, and beginning again as well as heartwarming, steamy and full of humor. The story is very addictive from the get-go, and I love that the story is set in an RV park.

Now rather than tell you all about the story, I'm going to tell you about the characters that fill this park, starting with Cooper Cochran; park owner, strong and silent type, but is protective of all of his employees. Coop's life hasn't been easy, after a painful loss, he never put himself out there emotionally, but after 3 years and with the right women, things change.

Phoenix Rose once had a life that many people envied, a successful business, attentive fiancé and a bright future, but that all fell apart when her business was robbed and she was attacked, which left her emotionally paralyzed. So after she let everything go, she decided that Cooper's Charm was going to be her fresh start

Ridley Rose, newly divorced and wealthy, has lots of bravo, but it's clear that her ex-husband has hurt her more than what she wants to let on. After following her sister Phoenix to Cooper's Charm, Ridley is also using this jumping point as a fresh new start, and it doesn’t hurt that she is the proud new owner of a luxury RV.

Baxter McNab scuba instructor and director, who just happens to be lean, strong, gorgeous, and a man who keeps his feeling to himself, and normally hides behind his shades, but boy when he wants something, he is determined.

Maris Kennedy is spunky and straight talking, and I loved her character from the moment she butted in between the job interview between Phoenix and Coop. Maris is a one of a kind women that we all want to be friends with but hasn't made up her mind with the one person she is interested in.

Daron Hardy; handyman extraordinaire, and somewhat of a man whore, likes to flirt with every pretty lady he sees but seems to be interested in just one if only she wouldn't turn him down.

There is also Joy and Officer Gibb Clark who we don't know really know, but I can't wait to get to know then in other books.

And finally Sugar! She truly makes the book for me!

Cooper's Charm is truly a fantastic book with a wonderful storyline, and loveable characters, that seem so familiar, but knew all at the same time, this series has made it on to my auto-buy list!

I give Cooper's Charm 5 stars!
