This book is a quick read; a light, funny, sweet romance with a dash of spice. Clare O'Brien's come a long way since her hair matched the color of carrots and her face had more freckles than she could count. She's grown into an auburn-haired beauty, with hardly a freckle in sight. However, some things haven't changed. Such as her memory of Valentine's Day way back in fourth grade. She's sure that a smirking, cardboard cupid saw to it she didn't receive a single valentine from a boy. Not even from Biff, the scrawny little kid who sat in the seat behind her. After she saved him from getting pummeled to pieces by the class bully. Now, year's later, each Valentine's Day still passes without Clare receiving as much as an empty envelope from any guy she knows. She blames it on that despicable cupid.

Neither has returning to her hometown, Maynard, Michigan, which is in the midst of one of the worst winters ever. No wonder her parents decided to retire to Florida. Leaving Clare the family home and the card shop known as Holiday House. One bitterly cold morning as she's getting ready to open the shop, an unbidden daydream pops into Clare's head and won't go away. She's suddenly standing alone in her yellow-flowered bikini on a tiny island somewhere in the South Pacific. It's warm. And sunny. With just a slight breeze lifting her hair. And then she sees him. A heart-stoppingly gorgeous guy on a surfboard coming toward her, fast. Then he's right there, flashing her a sexy smile as he jumps off his board and is running to her though the sand...
