This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Grace is a fixer. She's good at it, too. In her acupuncture practice, she fixes the community of Darling Bay, and in her personal life, she's rescued her sister too many times to count. Her love life, though . . . Grace doesn't think she needs help, especially not from a man whose very nickname is unhealthy.
Tox Ellis is the hazmat expert at the Darling Bay Fire Department, and he knows about harmful substances. He knows what gases to keep apart to prevent explosions. Why, then, can't he seem to stay away from Grace, the woman who seems to think he needs fixing?
Is Darling Bay ready for the chemical reaction Grace and Tox generate whenever they're in the same place at the same time? And who will be standing by to put out the flames?

Book 3: Everyday Hero (A Darling Bay Short Story)
Lila Ashe is a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. She's lived in the big city long enough to know she craves the stars at night, and living on the rugged northern coast of California is just right. Fans of Kristan Higgins, Bella Andre, and Barbara Freethy will settle right into California’s Darling Bay and Florida’s Cupid Island. Lila is happily married and addicted to all things romantic, including surprise getaways to San Francisco for clam chowder or overnight trips to Napa for wine, but she's also found that being romantic at home can be even more exciting.
Love! Love! Love! Such great writing!
Light, predicted but major holes
So sure it's a light romance read and I knew that going in but there was no time spent with the characters actually addressing their problems, hints that Tox had a gallbladder issue with the potential of Grace helping him find it, no potential Toz helping Samantha out, nothing. All these foreshadowing opportunities and nothing. Guess I'm off to find another random author with hopes it's make more fully developed story.
Not the Best
Not the best ending, but still a good read. I was honestly expecting more.
