πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š Under the Boardwalk was an enjoyable read. The amusement park setting was a perfect summertime theme, and I continually envisioned the carousel ride, the thundering roar of the roller coasters, the overhead cable cars, and the whimsical music playing all around. Here’s a little about the story…

Starlight Point amusement park owner Ford Hamilton has died, and his son, Jack Hamilton, has taken over as principal operator of the park. Β He was the most practical choice among the siblings as he has been working alongside his father at Starlight Point since he was young. His two sisters are okay with his running things, and he’s ready to begin managing the park he’s always loved. Problem is his father left more than the park to him, he’s also left behind debt that Jack was unaware of. Jack’s solution involves increasing the flat fee and profit percentage from the lease vendors, many of which have been loyally working at The Point for several years under his father’s favored leadership. The increase doesn’t bode well for the seasoned vendors or the newest one, Augusta “Gus” Murphy, who has 3 bakeries at Starlight Point. She’s frustrated by the new negotiations, but she also finds Jack rather irresistible. How can she rally for the lease vendors and at the same time fall in love with the man who’s causing them all misery?

A very sweet story with a climactic ending. Β A theme you won’t easily forget, and a satisfying HEA. A nice read for lovers of wholesome romance.
