On Order



When Connor Larkin boards a late night bus in downtown LA, he's not sure where he's going or what he's looking for. Once he dreamed of being a singer in the classic style of Sinatra and Bennett. But his lean good looks soon landed him in movies as the sexy "bad guy" -- and in the arms of a famous young heiress. Now, with his wedding day approaching, Connor finds himself stepping into the sleepy seaside town of Miramar Bay -- where one remarkable woman inspires him to rethink all of his choices . . .

Booklist Review

Nestled along California's central coast is the town of Miramar Bay, a quiet place of peace and respite. That's where rising movie star Connor Larkin ends up when he boards a bus in Los Angeles to escape his crazy and increasingly complicated life. With a fiancé he doesn't love and nagging doubts about his chosen profession, Connor needs somewhere to go to clear his head. Sylvie Cassick runs Castaways, a family restaurant and town gathering place. She struggles to make ends meet, but has the support of the locals to help her through rough spots. When Sylvie hires Connor to work as a waiter, her busy but quiet life quickly begins to change. And when she encounters legal troubles and faces losing her beloved restaurant, she must draw on all of her resources, including the mysterious Connor, to find a way out. Bunn (The Domino Effect, 2016) brings together a group of richly drawn and deeply human characters journeying toward a new life in the most idyllic of settings. This is a deeply satisfying read and a beautifully crafted portrait of small-town life.--Gladstein, Carol Copyright 2017 Booklist

Publisher's Weekly Review

Bunn lures readers to the idyllic locale of Miramar Bay, a quiet town along California's coast. Handsome actor Connor Larkin has grown tired of the Hollywood lifestyle and quietly slips out of Los Angeles on a Greyhound bus to Miramar Bay, a place that brings back fond memories for him. After arriving, he finds Castaways, a restaurant that reminds him of his youth. Connor meets the owner, Sylvie Cassick, a beautiful woman who seems to be haunted by her own demons. In a spur-of-the-moment decision, he asks her for a job and feels fortunate that she doesn't recognize him. Neither is she aware of his highly publicized upcoming wedding to Kali Lyndon-a wedding that he plans not to attend. When Connor develops feelings not only for Sylvie but for the town and its engaging residents, he knows that he needs to confess his true identity. Bunn has excelled in creating a deeply emotional read that will resonate with readers. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
